One of the best features of the Slimming Sassy Dress is its versatility. It is the dress every woman needs. It can be worn by any body type, and it looks especially fabulous on full-figured women. Need help identifying your shape? Take your measurements using this helpful guide.

All too often, plus-size fashion gets confused with baggy and frumpy. This little black dress is anything but. Chic, stylish and on trend, the Slimming Sassy Dress flatters women with a full figure because the fabric softly flows away from the body, balancing your silhouette. Plus, the black shade – a well-known slimming color – hides any imperfections. Find out how you can create an entire ensemble out of your new dress:


With all things fashion, you want to select accessories that are proportionate to your body size. For example, if you have a large bust, you want to select an oversized necklace. If you’re worried about drawing too much attention to the upper half of your body, select a subtle color like gold or silver. However, don’t stray away from the larger items to avoid making a statement with your jewelry. It’s better to strike that body balance than wear something that looks too small or out of place.

Jewelry doesn’t have to be just for blending in – it can actually make you look leaner. When selecting earrings, opt for long, dangling pieces. The straight line down your ear will make your neck look longer.


Though handbags should be proportionate with your body, you don’t want to don’t want to look frumpy with an overly large purse. Choose an oversized bag that fits your style, but stick to fashion purses and hobo bags rather than beach bags. A elegant handbag choice will enhance the sophistication of your LBD.


A little black dress goes perfectly with a striking pair of heels, and the height can make you look instantly leaner. Real Simple suggests women with curvier calves or ankles go for open-toe or sling back style footwear. The openness of the shoe will help create a longer visual leg line. Cutting off the line at the ankle or throwing in a T-strap may segment your style, shortening the look of your legs.

However, heels aren’t always doable for every woman, so flats can work for your style, too. If you’re ditching the heels, opt for pointed-toe flats. The sharp shape will create a narrow line from your leg to your toes, making you look lean and tall, even without the height.


Black tights are a great option for women who aren’t ready to bare their legs for summer. Your LBD will look great with a slimming pair of legwear, and the extra layer can easily transition you into the cooler seasons.


Though the black color and flattering fit of the Slimming Sassy Dress will make your body look long and lean, you can look extra slender with the help of shapewear. Comfortable and undetectable, shapewear will hold you in and can be worn right under the dress. Since the dress features a deep V-neck, opt for shapewear that doesn’t cover your bust, such as a braless body suit or a front corset cincher. These options provide full-body slimming without peeking out from under the dress.
