Ruched dresses are known for creating the perfect shape when worn. Ruching is a flattering sewing technique that makes the fabric gather and fold gently. This helps the fabric create a beautiful figure-hugging shape. Ruching can be placed in many different areas of a dress or gown, but it is most often seen on the bodice, waistline or the top of a skirt. Ruched dresses often have a punctuated waist that place an emphasis on your narrowest point. A ruched bodice creates a dramatic look and is often seen on wrap style dresses or strapless formal gowns. While it hugs your figure, ruching is so flattering and is good at hiding problem areas. A short ruched dress is a great option for cocktail parties and birthday celebrations.
Ruched dresses suit an array of formal and semi-formal occasions. For balls and dances, a gown with ruching will create a timeless and sophisticated look. Jovani’s ruched dresses come in many styles, such as off-the-shoulder, strapless, with sleeves, and sweetheart. We also create a wide range of silhouettes to choose from, including mermaid fishtail designs, ball gowns, a-line shapes and two pieces. This gives you more choices to suit your style and body type. For a military ball or high school dance, pair your ruched formal dress with classic black heels and a matching clutch to create a glamorous look with a vintage twist.
Ruched prom dresses create a flattering and beautiful look for your special night. You can choose a design with ruched detail at the front or back. A ruched waist means you’ll create an hourglass look that makes the best of your figure. This is an elegant and age-appropriate prom look. Ruched dresses suit a wide range of body types, and Jovani also creates plus size ruched dresses, as our designs run from 00 – 24.
