Whether you got married 3 weeks ago or 30 years ago, you may very well still have your dress sitting in a closet somewhere. This is one of those things that tends to get carried from house to house.

The subtle coverage is so very flattering, almost alluring. These dresses can be sassy and classy and usually hug the body. We all love hugs don’t we? There are all types of sexy ruched dress styles. Some give just a little slimming coverage putting emphases on the waist and hips. There are other styles that drape over the tummy area covering it up completely.
