The women that you see to the left before you has No fan fair, No accessories . No bling, and No glory and yet, home girl is work’in the @!$#! out of that dress. Notice the “final free-fall” at the back of the garment. It would be mentioned again in the article. If I told you any different I wouldn’t be credible. (Wearing this dress doesn’t take much.)
Here I would to share my opinion on a fashion trend that I just have to talk about. It’s the Hi-Low dress. What make this dress appealing is that unlike the asymmetrical hem dress, commonly known as the “fairy” style, or the “Hanky Hem” dress, it’s a more conservative look. Asymmetrical Styles will always have its place in the world of dresses and tops. It portrays the look of the women that has just been ripped out of the jungle like Jane with Tarzan or the safari wild women look, the more aggressive look of the Amazons. OHhh Soo Sexy. Men just can’t resist.
But the Hi-Low Dress is somewhat of a different asymmetrical style and offers a whole lot more than just being another cute dress. These dresses are available in a verity of lengths and angle of the cut. Depending on the pattern of the hem, the dress can by purchased in exposing, and dramatic patterns. Some angled high as to expose the thighs, and draping down to barely touching to floor in the back. You may prefer a more conservative look of a southern styled Maxi. ( As shown in the picture on the right.) Which one that you chose. You have a dress that has the hem cut lower in the back and a very noticeable higher cut in the front, making it one of the most sexiest dresses ever, that can be worn formally, informally, or just plain casual. Just remember that this article is based purely upon personal observations and assumption of the author, and is open for controversial opinion form readers, and fellow contributors.
Story: Recently I dined out at my favorite Trinidadian restaurant. Yeahh, thefoodwasgreat. But, what also makes this eatery one of my best restaurant is that the area is so wide open that I can check out everything that’s happening aroumd me. Here I always choose to be served in my special corner out of the way. This spot allows me to check out who, and what comes through the door. But this position also allows me to stare. To be frank, I can burn a hole through any fashioned played from this location and still remain in my comfort zone which suits me just fine.
On this particular day I observed a good many of the female guest sporting beautifully flowing deep Hi-Low dresses. In most cases the difference between the front and rear hem was at least 2 feet in length. Which is in my opinion one of the most appealing styles. One of the things that really got my attention was the variety in the different shapes and sizes of women that were wearing this style of dress. Yes, it’s a summer style for all sizes, and shapes to enjoy, but let me finish.
It’s great when you can sit back and enjoy this type of fashion show because you can really do a good comparison between sizes, and shapes. , everyone is wearing them, and I think that this is a rare time in fashion that one can observe the many constructive way on how to put together your own outfit. That means you can see the do’s and don’ts of that outfit and who looks best wearing it.
The second thing that could not be denied was that during my observation I concluded that it was the larger, full figured women that really brought this style of dress to life. It was was the women with large hips, waist, and thighs that fill the dress out in a more attractive manner than straight size women, typically your small, medium, lager, and some times Xlarge sizes, or your 0-22’s. (Here’s where the back-lash may start), but this is a dress that yells “fill me!”
These dresses vary in length, but I prefer the deeper hem cut. The beauty of it is that the front opens up like drapes on a cool sunny day, and the deep length between the back and the front hem better compliments the full-figured. Large waist, hips, thighs, and Legs bring the dress to a full blossom.—and in that order.
Allow me to explain in this break-down: The Big Effect
Number 2, The Hips: Which the garment flows further outwardly, setting the dress on its path to her visibly rounded thighs.
Number 3, The Thighs: Here is where it comes together. Some younger women are endowed with well rounded muscles (The quadriceps) on the frontal thigh as well as naturally developed calves. This gives the legs a curvy view from the front side of the garment. For these beautiful women this dress is a natural. Depending on the material used in it’s construction, you will announce yourself by merely standing there.
Number 4, The Legs: Both the Hips and the Thighs sets the opening wider. The final free-fall barely touching the legs, and with the curtain pulled back to unveil beautiful full size sexy legs. A peek-a-boo style dress to some, and it’s especially apparent when a women takes a full step.
Note; For the best results in this area it’s best that the dress is slightly form fitting—Slightly. The garment will command it own attention so don’t you worry yourself over a tight fit.. You can save your exposure for another outfit. ( Speaking to my Plus Size And Sassy crew.)
The Thin Size Effect
Some smaller women lack this desired free fall effect that it takes to bring out this dress. What you have is the dress cascading down the side of the length of the body, giving a straight and less appealing look. Nice, but not as appealing as filling the dress, with the appearance of a nearly closed curtain result.
Recently while leaving my office building I had the opportunity of observing smaller and somewhat petite women ranging from 5 feet to 5 feet 5 inches in frame wearing Hi-Low’s. They had me question myself in asking, did this article really scale down fairly. Maybe I’d projected a polarized view and opinion upon my readers, if I did please then excuse me. because it was clear, and apparent that no one told them that the dress wouldn’t work–they we’re dynamite! I would like to say that I thought all of the women that I observed looked fantastic.
Note: My preference is 3 to 5% of a spandex blend in whatever material you choose . Cotton is lovely. (Like a nice Caribbean breeze). It just makes you feel coool—mon.
I just would like to vote for the big girls on this one. I would like invite you to take your own observation and tell me what you think.
So all of the big beautiful women that are uncomfortable about wearing a dress that’s too revealing for your taste, rest assured, you still have cover. Keep in mind that depending on the cut, it can be fashioned as a peek-a-boo style garment, and you’re not overly exposing the goods. This is what makes it so sexy, assertive yet conservative. I witnessed a friend of mines except her compliments before going on stage. “Oh thank you.” she said “Yes, Thank you” and “Your so kind.” After walking through the gantlet of admirers I heard her say under her breath. “You damn right.”
For the Plus Size And Sassy’s out there that want more attention, go out and have fun with it this summer.
