Giving new meaning to the phrase “body conscious”…

Prom_dress_absIf, like us, your abs finished 2008 looking a little less ripped than the way they started it, courtesy of all that lovely Christmas food, this dress is probably your worst nightmare.

Actually, on second thoughts: forget the freakin’ abs. Let’s just say that if you’re anything like us, this dress is probably your worst nightmare. Because, let’s face it, you’d be as well just going out naked and having done with it, no? It’s not just the abs that are exposed here: the cut-outs go all the way down to the hip bones, and skirt dangerously close to the crotch. Too close for comfort, in fact.

This is the way evening-wear has been going lately. The body-con trend was one thing, with all of those tight fighting bandage-style dresses, but this? This is something else entirely. And if it’s a look you’re into, well, we can only hope one of your New Year’s Resolutions was to hit the gym hard…

(Thanks to Katie for the report!)

    I Really Really LOVE! this dress
    wouldnt wear it but thats more to do with it being too formal than showing sme skin.
    if you have the body, go for it
    if you got it flaunt it (as they say :p)

    My mom would never EVER let me wear this dress, or any dress, that shows your midriff.
