Different Types of Bodycon


The Different Styles Of Bodycon Dress

What is Bodycon?

Let’s start this post with a fun fact… did you know bodycon originally derives from the term body-conscious? It’s true. Since the popular bodycon trend blew up, girls of all shapes and sizes have begun to rock bodycon clothing in all forms of attire. But there has been debate... exactly what is bodycon clothing? And what makes it different? 

Many people presume that bodycon, like the name suggests, should offer a supportive and figure-flattering fit. On the other hand, many suggest the term surrounds any item of clothing that fits your body like a glove, hugging your silhouette and showing off your curves. But which is it? The truth is… bodycon clothing can do both. Most of AYM’s bodycon dresses are made using our signature double layered technique for a supportive and flattering fit.

What Is A Bodycon Dress?

A bodycon dress encircles any form of dress that has been designed and crafted to outline your figure and enhance your body’s curves. Close-fitting bodycon dresses are available in a range of different styles, all of which are perfect for various different occasions… particularly when you’re looking to impress.

What Are The Different Types Of Bodycon Dress?

Bodycon Mini Dress

Similarly to most fashion dresses, bodycon dresses can be identified by their length. A bodycon mini dress, therefore, hugs the figure whilst sitting above the knee. The length and style of a bodycon mini dress gives you an opportunity to show off both your legs and curves. If you need more inspiration you can find AYM’s entire mini dress collection here.

Bodycon Midi Dress

The next bodycon dress in terms of length is the famous midi dress. The bodycon midi-dress is a dress that hits mid-calf… but, in theory, midi’s can sit anywhere below the knee and above the ankle. Bodycon midi dresses are available in a wide range of styles that are all fitting for types of occasions: long-sleeved, lace-up, vibrant colours, you name it. AYM’s ethically handmade midi dress collection demonstrates this, with special pieces such as the Tana Bodycon Midi Dress as worn by glamour superstar Kim Kardashian.

Bodycon Maxi Dress

The maxi dress length is anywhere from the ankle to the floor; the longest style of dress on offer at AYM. Bodycon maxi dresses are fantastically figure-flattering long length dresses that allow you to highlight your curves whilst minimizing any trouble spots. AYM offers a wide range of bodycon maxi dresses fit for different purposes, such as the Bandeau Bodycon Maxi Dress that casually sits on your curves. Feeling something a little more glamorous?
