Sometimes a woman wants to feel sexy. This sudden need to put on a fab little number, look in the mirror, and say aloud, “Damn, I’m hot!” may be propelled by a break-up (he’s a moron!), a weight-loss (all those hours in the gym paid off!), a weight-gain (it looks good on you, work it, girl!), a promotion (you deserve the shopping spree, lady!), or a number of other reasons.
And, while we Bitches recommend you feel sexy for yourself rather than for a guy (a bit of Bitchtastic psychology), sometimes, a girl just wants to get hit on at a bar (that’s right, we said it). Or, for a more immediate context, perhaps you’re looking for prince charming when the ball drops at midnight.
Regardless of your motivation, the ruched dresses below answer your sexy-yet-flattering dress dreams. While tight, the ruching on the dresses flatters most figures, as the added fabric always accentuates our favorite spots and forgives in places – like the hips and thighs – where we might need it.
