What’s the one type of dress that stays in style through the year?
If you didn’t answer that question with “Bodycon”, you might want to think again.
Fashionable or not, a bodycon dress is one that will never go unnoticed at a club, restaurant or, if you’re daring enough, even at work. It is as stylish as style can get.
All women desire to wear one but not many find the courage to. They either feel too slender or too well endowed to carry off a bodycon. We, as supporters of individual style and free self expression through style, encourage all women to try the bodycon if their heart so desires. We also offer a few tips that could help them select the bodycon for them
Curvy women could use help from getting bodycon dresses that have less bare spandex and more hard yarn in the make of the fabric of the dress… wait, what? What does that mean? That means the bodycon dress type that will make curvy women feel comfortable in their skin is one that is made with fabric that stretches but holds the body taut, in place. If you’re one who is conscious about bulges, get this bodycon dress type.
Bare spandex adds stretch to the dress to make movement easier while the hard yarn (e.g. cotton or polyester) holds the structure of the fabric in place.
Women who feel they are too slender to fit into a bodycon dress should get one that’s layered in the places where they feel they can use volume. For instance, a bodycon with ruffles at the bust or a peplum layer around the waist and butt area could be layers that flatter your body. You could wear bodycons with or without stretch and the bare spandex content in proportion to hard yarn is not of much significance.

Socks are the most underrated accessory in the fashion and styling space, especially when they can truly transform your end look. A bright pair of socks, or boldly or lightly patterned ones can accentuate your attire. They can keep your toes warm in winter and/or absorb excess sweat during summer. So selecting socks for a particular season that will not only add flourish to your feet, but also provide the right kind of cushioning and comfort is important. Needless to say, the secret to getting the perfect socks lies in the hosiery yarn that makes them.
Now, there are six types of
hosiery yarns that are used to make socks, namely, spandex, acrylic, nylon, wool, rayon and cotton. All six of these yarns have unique properties that set their applications apart from one another.
Spandex, for instance, is used widely in sports socks for its elasticity and durability. When mixed with cotton, the spandex blend becomes absorbent and roomy, hence ideal for a sweaty and heavy work out. Then there is wool. Since it is warm, it is an ideal hosiery yarn for use in socks for winter care. However, wool by itself isn’t very durable, which is why blends with strong synthetics, like polyester, are recommended for long lasting wear.
Rayon is another Hosiery Yarn, when blended with synthetics like spandex, makes for socks that are durable and cheaper than cotton. Then there is nylon that is used to make various types of stockings and pantyhose. Socks made of nylon weren’t absorbent till about two decades back which is why choosing to wear them in summer was for the daring. But with the introduction of moisture wicking techniques in fabric construction, breathability was achieved in most synthetic fabric creations, including nylon. Finally, acrylic, a cheaper and stronger alternative to wool.
