The time has come! We are finally ditching the tie-dye sweatsuits and “dressing up.”
We all need a couple of flattering dresses in our wardrobe and a ruched dress is super flattering on any shape and is also chic and stylish.
What exactly is ruching?
Ruching is a gathered overlay of fabric strips that are pleated, fluted, or gathered together to create a ripple-like effect. The frill or pleat of the fabric, often lace, chiffon, or muslin, has evolved from the 16th-century ruff.
Ruching is often used in wedding dresses, particularly in the bodice, to create a slim torso or waist and to draw attention to the narrowest part of the body.
It also has the effect of concealing figure details behind the fabric.
Now, after a year in quarantine who doesn’t want that?
