Acne check dress with padded hips. Yes, padded hips

Acne-dress-with-padded-hips

When we played Wear or Die with a pair of big-hipped trousers yesterday, some of you were of the opinion that anything – even harem pants – would be better than making yourself look like you were wearing an old-fashioned farthingale.

Those people may want to look away now, because what you see before you is a dress with padded hips. You know, to make your hips look… well, huge. As an added incentive, this one also comes with what looks like a pre-attached "pinny", so you won't just look like you have massive hips, you'll look like you're a waitress with massive hips.

We'd venture to suggest that this look is not exactly what the world has been waiting for, however, should you disagree, the dress is by Acne and you can buy it at Browns icon.

    So weird.
    I could understand maybe wanting a tiny bit of hip padding if, say, you are a skinny girl who wants a bit of a curvy figure, but this is pretty ridiculous.

    I’ll go ahead and disagree. There’s a grand history of women emphasizing their lower half with bustles and hoop skirts and what not. I never did understand why a woman’s natural curvaciousness ever went out of style. It’s just a pity the dress is so butt ugly. Black and white checkers? Like picnic tablecloth? Really?!?

    I’m with gokarm on this – I like the shape but the pattern is horrible!
