If you have the figure for them short cocktail dresses look great. However, even if you do not have the perfect figure you should not completely dismiss the idea of treating yourself to one. Even older women with fuller figures can look good in one if they take the time to shop around for the right cut and length. Short does not mean mini it can also mean midi or on the knee.
Tips for Buying Short Cocktail Dresses
A lot of women’s legs stay looking great even after they have put on a bit of weight. If you are lucky, enough to be one of those women try on a few super short dresses and see what you think. Many women are pleasantly surprised by the overall effect. If you can find a good fit, go for one with a shaped waist and wear a corset to smooth out your midriff. This style will accentuate your curves and can be a very sexy look.
For older women a well made classically cut cocktail dress can look great. However, a mini cut rarely looks good on women over 50, but a just above the knee cut works well, especially when well accessorised with high heels to give the calves more shape.
