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.
