Another Disenchanted With The DVF Wrap ... Do You Look Good In It?

Thank you, thank you Sadie at Jezebel for airing your grievances over an issue I've kept mum about for years. The DVF wrap dress is not that flattering! At least not on me (and one other woman out there). Ever since I could dress myself in decent-looking clothes, I have tried to make the DVF wrap work. But I could never find one that complemented my figure. First, the front V always gaped too low, and separated my bust.  And worse than that, the skirt fabric clung to my curves in all the wrong places, and revealed way too much upon sitting. 

My salvation? Faux wrap dresses. These lifesavers give the illusion of the wrap – v front, full skirt, draped jersey, defined waist – without the tricky maneuvering. Problem solved.

The Donna Morgan Faux Wrap Dress ($98) in simple black will become a new closet staple. The sashes tie in the back, creating an elegant, lean look in front.

For a slightly deeper V, the Lauren by Ralph Lauren Matte Jersey Dress ($140) in vibrant red is a perfect party dress. And the fabric won't cling to your bottom half.

The retro chain-link print on this Faux Wrap ($56, was $148) is reminiscent of a true DVF. Wear it to work with tights and your new favorite boots.

How about you? Are you a devout follower of the DVF wrap? Or does the dress not flatter your figure either? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
