Cara Delevingne, Rihanna, and every other famous woman who wants to get in on some body pride are glorious. But as luck would have it, it seems that slim people are often the only card-carrying members of the nekked dress club.
We’ve said it before. We need naked dresses too. And now, Ashley Graham wore one, and it’s exceptional. (It’s from JLux Label.)
Since 2013, the sheer naked dress has become a red carpet staple for better or for worse. It’s the dress to be ogled at in, reported on, and also to celebrate your bod in. So many famouses like Jennifer Lopez, Rita Ora, and Kim Kardashian go the NAKED but with some lace route now, and it makes sense. It’s 1. feminist and slightly pervy at the same time (read our interview with the Free the Nipple director on that) and 2. Everyone’s all on Instagram being totes transparent and documenting “intimate moments.” These dresses are also – the best among them – couture-looking.
Before we prematurely shoot a flaming bow and arrow in the air to signify the end of the curvy girl’s shopping struggles, these dresses only go up to a large. But the fabrication does look like it has a bit of give. We know, banish the assumption that women should ever have to squeeze into things. Brittnee Blair told us that idea still exists, by the way. But this label makes it very clear that they dress curvier women than you’re used to seeing when you’re rummaging around e-commerce sites. From the looks of it, it could fit quite nicely on a bunch of people. The highwaisted underwear, the neckline, and the minimal lace details all make this one a winner, and we’d like to see if on more women.
So some of us can join the women who do “pretty much naked” daywear nicely. Somewhere, we hope more women are deciding they need to take “black tie,” as a suggestion to BE NAKED.
Thanks for the skin, Ash.
