The dress that suits EVERY shape: From petite to plus-sized

Kate Middletons engagement dress is the perfect fit whether you are petite or plus size.

According to U.S. Glamour magazine, there is one dress type that flatters every size and shape.

It is suitable for the office, yet sexy enough for a date - and affordable, too. This wonder garment is the jersey dress. Its draped front, three-quarter sleeves, longish length, cinched waist and clever ruching means it solves any problem even the most self-conscious woman can come up with.

Better still, it’s the sort of dress popularised by Brazilian designer Issa, and worn by Kate Middleton when announcing her engagement. So it’s on trend, too.

The jersey dress, popularised by Kate Middleton, right, suits and flatters every figure but that the bigger the girl, the better it looks

The draping on this dress stops it from being too clingy over the hips and stomach, while the nipped-in waist gives a good shape - and the long sleeves hide the upper arms. Perfect!

  1. I wouldn't call it a trend since it's been a mainstay since the 1970's when Halston and Diane Von Furstenberg both introduced jersey into ready-to-wear evening apparel. In fact DVF is well known for her innovative and iconic wrap dress.
