The One Dress that Flatters Every Shape

Hi Everyone,

With Summer at our door it really is time to get out those dresses. On those super hot Summer days I love the fact that there is an ever increasing supply of beautiful stretch clothing available. Recently I discovered the most awesome stretch dress with a special one piece belt. This can be worn at various heights to create different fun looks in seconds.

The One Dress that Flatters Every Shape

Ania Schierholt

This is my most favourite “going to the beach” look…

I love the fact that even though there is no belt the dress is a little thinner at the bottom giving the dress a slightly tailored look whilst keeping the 100% comfort factor.

Can you still see me? You seem to have gone… oh no it’s because I have the one piece belt in front of my eyes…

See what happens to the look when I add this to the dress.

Voila – now I have a waist! This is a great look for anyone with a smaller waist or real “hourglass” figure.

As the belt is more of a tube you can transform the dress in seconds.

However this doesn’t stop here…

Wear the belt lower and turn it into a hipster dress. Perfect for a fuller figure as it nicely hides any bulges by bringing the dress in at the hips.


Dress by Ania Schierholt – available in stores throughout:

Switzerland and

Germany, Austria, Netherlansds, Irland, Canada, Australia and Russia

Personally I have fallen in love with Ania Schierholt designs in general – the simplicity of her styles make them perfect for any “lego wardrobe”. You can almost mix and match every single piece together and the stretch comfort is simply unbeatable. I wore one of her suits on the plane during my last trip to NZ – was super comfy and meant I didn’t feel like a rag doll once I reached my end destination (that’s the usual feeling after a 24 hour flight).

    1. Hi Katya,

      The dress is a stretch cotton. Unfortunately it is not available online but where do you live as there may be a shop near you.
      Alternatively I could try and get one sent to you.

      xx Yvonne

  1. Dear Yvonne,
    olive green is one of my favourite colors, so I felt really in love with your khaki dress. I love simple and clean style like this. And my big compliment for the combination with the sneakers. Just beautiful. Greetings from Luzern Martina

  2. Super geschrieben, liebe Yvonne! Du triffst genau die richtigen Worte um den Look zu beschreiben – du fühlst ihn eben 🙂 Danke!!
