A Dolce and Gabbana sheath dress flatters like no other. Dolce and Gabbana since the 1980s, make their sheath dresses – in various lengths – ‘a thing’. A sheath dress is not the same as a shift dress. Between you and me the two styles of dress are chalk and cheese. A shift dress suits straighter figures as the the design of the dress falls straight from the shoulders. A sheath dress on the other hand is figure hugging, shaping the bust, waist and hips.

Dolce and Gabbana are masters of creating the sheath dress in varying lengths. I read in some places a sheath dress should fall to the knee or above the knee.  That’s not what I see all around me in Dolce and Gabbana collections!

A D & G sheath dress, simply said, flatters the female form. A killer silhouette. Experts at making real women look the best versions of themselves, D & G sheath dresses are a key part of every Dolce and Gabbana dress collection.

Dolce and Gabbana Sheath Dress – The Most Natural Dress Shape

A D & G sheath dress is your shortcut to dressing like a real woman. And by that, I mean dressing to accentuate your curves. Born out of the 60’s, no other dress shape can do more for your figure. A true sheath dress should have no waistline join. Plus the shaping a la Dolce and Gabbana, is via diamond darting and clever seaming. While it must not be so tight as to actually cling to the body, it’s ideally designed to be body skimming. To wear one to best effect decent underwear is your best friend. A  shift dress  is better for angular body shapes.

While the advent of the sheath dress is widely credited to Paul Poiret, like Dolce and Gabbana, he put as much attention to the look of a dress as what was underneath the fabric (by way of a girdle). Sheath dresses are often knee length,  however Dolce and Gabbana have breathed new life into this quintessential dress shape by changing both the length of the dress and the construction. This is an important point. Many designer dress newbies are unaware of exactly how a designer dress is put together. Part of the pleasure of wearing a Dolce and Gabbana sheath dress is the internal structure. Dolce and Gabbana typically puts in place plenty of internal structures, to create the ultimate shaping of the female form.
