Wiggle Dress by Patterns for Pirates

Oct 27, 2017

I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly.  Seriously.  You’re not ready for what’s about to come.  It is one of the sexiest things Judy has drafted to-date and it is available NOW.  Let’s talk about the newest Patterns for Pirates release, shall we?  Meet the Wiggle Dress.

Okay, okay.  I know I already posted my mermaid version of it, but here’s the non-costume look at this little cutie.  Judy literally jammed as many options as she could into one pattern and then turned every single woman ever into a hottie-pa-tottie.  The Wiggle Dress is magic.  It comes in multiple lengths (crop top, shirt, above-knee, below-knee, midi, and floor), multiple sleeve styles (short, half, three-quarter, and long), off the shoulder, boat neck, low back, high back…..ALL THE OPTIONS.

The great thing about this pattern is that it accounts for curves.  Boooooooooty.  The back piece features a middle seam and hugs those curves.  All of them.  So much va-va-voom.

I’m only talking about this because it has been asked a million times already.  But yes, I wore shapewear.  And yes, I hate wearing it.  I hate wearing the shorts style because they feel weird on me….and like my legs are trying to escape out of the bottom of them.  I hate the bikini style ones because they give me double butt cheeks.  And I hate the thong version….because it honest to god feels like my butt crack is being punished for something.  TMI?  Probably.  But it’s the truth.

I spent a lot of time looking for shapewear online.  I went to a local department store and stretched/stared at everything the had to offer (and bought one that I seriously want to burn).  I stared at so many models’ butts.  SO. MANY.  I eventually settled on this: SLENDSHAPER.  Not going to lie, I’d rather live life without it.  But I also wanted my tummy to be sucked in a little bit on my side-profile shots.  So I went with it because it’s been the least unpleasant of my shapewear experience so far.  On the average day?  I might just feel better flying without it and being all “this is me, deal with it”.  Haha.  Because seriously I hate shapewear.  I cannot stress that enough.  I will whine forever about it.

What will I not whine about?  This dress.  Because it makes all of my curves work for me, rather than against me.
