1. Dresses with Sheer Sleeves are Ideal

If you are self-conscious about your midlife arms, you may be on the lookout for a dress with sleeves. But be careful because some dresses with full-length sleeves can drag you down and make you look heavy, old, and dowdy.

Three-quarter length sleeves are a better choice because they reveal more skin which is more youthful. Sheer sleeves also keep things light and airy and add glamour and mystery. This pretty cocktail dress cleverly combines both and adds a pretty flare that balances out a fuller figure.

This is a stunning dress and looks beautiful with black and silver accessories that give it a luxurious, regal look.

2. Waist Definition is Flattering

It may seem counterintuitive when you have a fuller figure, but it’s important to highlight your waist. Whether that means a wearing belted dress, or a dress that is cut to slightly nip in at the waist, highlighting your waist or creating the illusion of a waist is much more flattering than wearing a loose, baggy dress.

I love this pretty pale pink shift dress with the romantic silk ribbon. The cool pink color works all year round, and for many more occasions than just a wedding.

A wedding calls for fancy evening shoes and these pretty champagne ones are soft enough that they don’t overpower this delicate dress.  These dangly crystal earrings are feminine and flirty.

3. Dark Colored Dresses are Slimming

Everyone knows that dark colors are slimming, but that doesn’t mean you have to resort to wearing black. This gorgeous forest green dress works just as well to create a long, lean look and the color is so fall-like. Satiny fabrics like this are trendy this season. They add so much glamour but are also a tad tricky to wear. A little shapewear does wonders to smooth things out.

Enjoy the wedding!
