Herve Leger is the most coveted dress because of how slimming the fabric is and how it creates a super sexy hourglass shape. Have you noticed just how often Herve Leger is worn for weight loss ads and commercials? If slimming is your ultimate goal, look for dresses with these additional features.
Naturally, dark colors are very slimming. Also, dark colors tend to create less shadows, which means slight bulges are disguised.
Herve Leger banding falls into two categories. Some dresses are faux banded; this means that the bands are not individual strips that are sewn together. Individually banded dresses are more difficult to produce, but they also provide greater hold. If the bust area is individually banded, this means more push up power. If the waist and / or hips have individual banding, it means greater shaping in the area. The dresses above are examples of dresses that are individually banded from top to bottom. Usually individually banded dresses cost more than those that are not.
Fall 2008 Herve Leger dresses have been hugely popular, partly because there were more individually banded dresses from that season than any other. An individually banded Herve Leger is a must have in any woman's closet. The shaping is extraordinary. The thinner the band's are, the more shaping as well.
Many dresses at Lollipuff are 100% individually banded. Here are just a few of them: here, here, and here. For even more options of individually banded Herve Leger, you can check out these: here, here and here.
Herve Leger dresses are renowned for accentuating curves. So, it's no surprise that many HL dresses have strategically placed designs that celebrate curves.
Finally, look for dresses that have color blocking. Dresses with color blocking around the waist can be particularly flattering.
If you can afford it, many runway pieces provide the best fit possible. These usually retail a few thousand dollars.
Many of these dresses are much stiffer than most other Herve Leger dresses or there is beautiful ornate detail covering any flaws.
