Best Herve Leger Dresses for Narrow Hips

By Bebefuzz

There are lots things that keep some women from trying out Herve Leger. A common assumption is that you must be an hourglass in order to pull off Herve Leger. That's not the case at all. Today, we'll cover the best bandage dresses for those with narrow hips. :)

Let the Herve Leger do the work for you. With the tips below, find a dress that will balance apple and straight body types.

Think Short

Herve Leger mini dresses

A shorter hemline that is at least a couple of inches above the knee look better on smaller hips. Unfortunately, long tight dresses that go beyond the knee may make the hips look very straight.

Halter Neckline

This neckline is so flattering for those with narrow hips; it really brings out the curves. It has the illusion of making the shoulder area smaller, thus creating an overall balance of top and bottom.

Strategic Trim or Banding

dresses that create hourglass shapes

Herve Leger dresses not only show off curves, but they also bring them out. There are countless HL dresses with strategically placed trim or bands that emphasize the smallest part of the waist while exaggerating the hips.

Herve Leger colorblock dresses

Some examples include dresses with trim that minimizes the waist and/or bust, dresses with strategically placed colorblocking, and diagonal banding around the hips. These thoughtful designs combined with Herve Leger's signature firm hold can really can do wonders for the body!

A-lines are universally flattering! Leave it to a flared dress to make your waist look super small in comparison to the hips!

Last, but not least, ombres with lighter shades on the hips and darker shades around the waist will be gorgeous! Remember, dark colors are always more slimming than light colors. Not only do ombres look beautiful, but they really are genius for contouring. Because the color change is gradual, ombres are much more effective at slimming and contouring than many color-blocked dresses.
