Also known as tent / sack dresses, the trapeze dresses are very cute, carefree and feminine, though not for every body type. Nevertheless if you choose one with a fabrics that drapes close to the body, such as chiffon or jersey instead of one made of crisp fabrics which tend to sit away from the body creating a tent-effect [a much less flattering style] you may still be able to pull one off. Very trendy during summertime they reveal to be perfect as maternity dressing as well, thanks to their slightly oversized shape, their comfortability and effortlessness. A trapeze dress needs to be worn with the right attitude so that you still feel sexy, interesting, stylish and cool in one. It's the wearer that should be making the dress and not the other way around!
