As a typical pear I often struggle to find dresses that fit me like a glove. Although size 12 fits perfectly on the top, it is too clingy at the bottom. Size 14 on the other hand skims over my thighs and hips but is too roomy around the waist. Nevertheless I am forced to go for the bigger size and need to rely on belts to define my waistline.
What's wrong with that I hear you say? Technically nothing as belts have always been seen as a great fashion accessory that can transform an outfit in seconds. But I find them incredibly uncomfortable, especially when I sit at my desk for 8 hours.
So for a very long time I tried to come up with a solution to my problem. I remembered that my mum once had this cinch clip which she attached to the back of a dress or shirt to make it more fitted. Apparently it was very popular in early 90s.
However, as nothing like this is available on High Street, it then hit me that I should make the clip myself.
That's how my dress cinch clips were born. I know I'm biased but I think they are fabulous. They can be used with any dress, top, or shirt so they really do save an outfit! Plus they are decorative so you don't have to worry about wearing other accessories.
Simply gather the fabric in the area that needs cinching and attach the clip. As you can see on the photos below, your waist will be more defined giving you some curves.
The dress cinch clips are now available at IZPROJECT, which is my online boutique with jewellery and fashion accessories (shameless plug, I know ;)).
Have you heard about the cinch clips before? Would you consider wearing something like that? I will be adding new designs soon so I'd love to know what you think.
