Ruched Short Dresses and Formal Gowns

Ruching is a gathered fabric design technique used by dress designers in every style from sexy cocktail dresses for the clubs to elegant gowns for formal occasions.  Short strapless dresses and mini dresses give you more room to move when the fabric is ruched.  Sleek evening gowns and prom ruched dresses get a more textured look and may hide any unwanted bumps making the waist look smaller. Glamorous evening wear, sweet sixteen and semi formal dresses or sexy little club dresses all with various ruched styles can flatter any figure.
