Frequently Asked Questions 

What is a fitted dress?

A fitted dress is characterised as being tight fitting and perfectly shaped to fit the female figure. In other words, it's a dress tailored to flaunt your beautiful curves. Fitted dresses or pencil dresses come in many different fabrics, colours and styles. For example, a sexy velvet dress or a figure-fitting dress with a chic belt at the waist. 


Where and when can you wear a pencil dress? 

First things first, you can of course wear whatever you want - whenever you want! A pencil dress is so versatile, and adaptable that you can't go wrong. Of course, you can wear a very formal pencil dress for special occasions, but there is no reason why you can't wear your favourite pencil dress on a normal weekday. Accessories and shoes will give you the styling versatility you need, giving your outfit a more casual vibe or a more sophisticated look. 


Which body type looks good in a fitted dress? 

Every body is a perfect body - so don't let anything hold you back! Just be aware that fitted dresses are skin-tight and accentuate all of your curves, unlike for example an A-line dress. But the right underwear will give you a beautiful smooth base that makes every (tight-fitting) dress look and fit better, so you will feel your most confident self. After all, self-confidence is the best accessory! However, if you feel less comfortable in figure-fitting dress, you should check out our collection of flared dresses.


Can I wear a fitted dress in summer?

Fitted dresses are always popular in summer. It's the time of year when people wear body-con dresses in the brightest, cheery colours. Pick a pretty sleeveless design and you're all set for those sunny days! 


Can I wear a fitted dress in winter?

A pencil dress is also a great outfit choice for winter. A long-sleeve pencil dress will keep you warm, especially when paired with tights and warm boots. Of course, a pencil dress also looks great when worn with a long cardigan or an edgy jacket or blazer! 


Can you wear a pencil dress to a wedding?

A wedding is the perfect occasion to wear your prettiest dress. So don't be afraid to shine in a chic pencil dress with beautiful detailing, like a bow at the waist. Finish the look with some pretty high heels. Va-va-voom!


Is a pencil dress office-appropriate? 

Absolutely, there is no reason why you can't show off your figure at the office! Since the pencil dress design is pretty sexy in and of itself, it's best to choose a dress that has sleeves and a modest neckline.  


Which shoes should you wear with a pencil dress? 

You can style pencil dresses however you like. Like an edgy touch? Wear your dress with boots. Looking for some sex appeal? Spice up your outfit with high heels. Love a summer look? Pair your dress with your favourite sandals!
