One question I always want to ask stylish women is “What will I never catch you wearing?” I think this is a very revealing question, and my answer has always been body-con. I see other women wearing body-con dresses and looking fabulous, and this has nothing to do with what shape or size they are. But for me, just the thought of wearing a skin-tight dress brings up a ton of body insecurities. I imagine a photo of me on the cover of a tabloid, my lumpy thighs spilling out of my too-short, riding-up-in-the-rear bandage dress, a black bar over my eyes and a big DON’T next to the pic. I think of the hordes of women parading from club to club downtown on Market Street, with the same highlights, the same tan, the same black body-con dress, eyeliner, and cage heels. And so, I have avoided the body-conscious silhouette.

But there is a first time for everything, my friends, and this dress from Asos has changed the way I feel about body-con. It doesn’t have to be slutty, or skin-tight, or super-short. It can be… classy? Yes, just maybe. Did this dress just give me curves? Did the longer hemline actually lengthen my legs? I must be seeing things. Body-con, we should have hooked up a long time ago. This new relationship is going to be good for both of us.
