Certainly not waist-ing their style stature!
Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe showing off their tiny waist in sheaths and corseted dresses have been an inspiration for fashion lovers across the world. The cinched waist trend has made a comeback with Bollywood divas experimenting with the style. According to Google, searches for ‘waist cinchers’ and related terms have more than doubled in the last year. Designer Rocky S says it’s because the trend flatters every body type. “Cinched waist dresses suit most Indian body types. They help add curves to a slim figure and also accentuate existing curves in an hourglass figure,” says Rocky.
Designer Nida Mahmood says that the trend is here to stay. “Cinched waists are not just restricted to dresses and gowns. You can even cinch your kurtas with belt,” says Mahmood.
Stylist Vikram Seth suggests wearing a thick waist belt over a plain dress. “A robe style belted jumpsuit or a knotted dress is also a good option,” says Seth.
