Dress is the most recognizable element of the Russian national costume. Women and girls wore this clothing long before us, and now, after so many years, the sundress is still one of the favorite things in our wardrobe. The characteristic signs of a Russian sundress were wide straps and a spacious skirt to the floor. The bodice could be both dense and free - but necessarily closed.

Modern sundresses have changed significantly and already have little resemblance to those in which our ancestors went. The skirt can now be of any length, and the straps - thin or completely absent. Another significant difference is this: if before a sundress was worn solely under a shirt, now it is worn mostly on a naked body.

Who is suitable?

A sundress is a universal thing, which any shape will give soft, feminine forms. If you notice any flaws in your body, they will be easily corrected with a properly chosen dress-sundress.

For slim girls with a boyish figure, a sundress with a loose skirt and ruffles on the bodice will add volume to the chest and thighs. High-waisted sundresses are well suited for both slim and plump young ladies.

Owners of a pronounced waistline, fluffy chest and hips should pay attention to the fitted models. Girls with a pear-shaped figure should choose sundresses with a volume top (for example, with sleeves-wings or ruffles on the bodice).


In Russia, worn only long sundressesAfter all, it was considered indecent to demonstrate legs up to the last century. In modern fashion, the maximum closed bottom is compensated by an open top. Maxi sundresses, as a rule, have the top, fully opening the shoulders.

AT short sundresses many girls prefer to dress as soon as the warm days come. In light dresses, opening most of the body, incredibly comfortable in the heat: they do not hold down movements and allow you to get a beautiful tan.

Shirt dress sundress little resembles the bright summer dress that we are used to. It refers rather to the business style, and many wear it to work. This style is characterized by the presence of sleeves and a collar. Often this dress has a fitted silhouette, so it is worn with a belt.

Wrap dress - This is the legacy of the fashion of the 60s. Today, such models are recommended by stylists to plump girls, as they perfectly mask the protruding belly and emphasize the lush chest. That is why wrap-around sundresses are often bought by future mothers.


Sundresses are, first of all, clothes for summer, therefore they are most often sewn from thin, natural fabrics. Cotton, flax, viscose, calico, chiffon - you will feel comfortable in clothes made from such materials even on the hottest day. Traditionally for sundresses choose fabrics of bright colors. Especially popular are models with floral and ethnic ornaments.

However, sundresses are not only summer, but also designed for the cold season. In this case, they are sewn from denser and warmer fabrics containing wool or synthetic fibers.


Flax clothing, which disappeared from our wardrobes for a long time, is now actively returning its positions. Having become accustomed to synthetic fabrics, we forgot how comfortable our body is in things made from natural material.Linen sarafans are back in fashion thanks to eco-style - a popular design direction based on the use of natural materials.


Denim clothing is an integral part of casul style. Jeans, denim jackets, overalls and dresses make our life much more comfortable. Denim sundresses are good because they can be worn not only in summer, but also in the cold season - in combination with a shirt or a turtleneck. Light sundresses made of thin denim look very cute and romantic.


With the help of several skeins of yarn, a pair of knitting needles or a hook, you can create unusually beautiful, truly unique outfits. One of the most suitable models of dresses for knitting is a sundress. It fits quite simply and, in addition, a miniature sundress woven from bright threads looks very impressive.

Popular colors

For the summer, girls choose dresses of mostly bright colors. After all, over the long autumn-winter season, we are so tired of the strict dark shades! When the skin is slightly tanned, be sure to wear light-colored sundresses that set off tan - white, lemon, pale lilac. However, dresses of rich shades look no less beautiful on dark skin - yellow, crimson, turquoise, emerald.

Sundresses do not have to be monotonous: feel free to choose models with a bright print, for example, an animal or abstract geometric pattern. Popular today, the so-called "gradient" colors: when one color gradually changes into another.

Features of choice for obese women

As we already wrote above, dress-dress is perfect for girls with curvaceous. Thanks to the free cut, it perfectly masks all the problem areas, focusing on the merits of the figure. If you have massive shoulders, try not to wear dresses with puffy sleeves - “wings” and “flashlights.” If you have a tummy, sundresses with a high waistline or a scent will look best. Plump legs perfectly conceals a spacious skirt to the floor.

Not only the style of the paty-sarafan, but also its coloring will help to visually correct the figure. When choosing a model with a pattern, avoid too small patterns and horizontal stripes.

What to wear?


Dress, depending on its model, goes well with different things. Summer sundresses can be worn with a denim jacket or shirt, as well as with an openwork bolero or thin jacket. Office sundresses are worn with a shirt, blouse or turtleneck. Jeans sundresses on the straps in the style of the 90s can be worn over a T-shirt.


Different shoes fit the sundress - modern girls wear it even with sneakers. The more traditional option is sandals or sandals. Clogs and slates are also suitable (the latter is still recommended to be worn only on the beach). In a cool season, a sundress can be worn with office shoes, boots or boots.


A sundress is a very feminine outfit and a bit frivolous, so it needs appropriate accessories. Small, bright handbags or capacious wicker bags will suit this romantic dress. It goes well with straw hats and original headbands. Wooden or plastic multi-tiered beads and bracelets will be very appropriate, as well as large earrings.


  • Prefer sundresses made of natural fabrics. They look much better than artificial ones and, moreover, they allow us not to experience discomfort in the heat.
  • Choose a dress dress based on the type of your figure. All flaws should be hidden or well disguised, and all advantages should be underlined.
  • Pay attention not only to the style of the dress, but also to the color performance. A simple dress of unusual colors, which favorably emphasizes your appearance, will look much better than the most elegant dress of unsuccessful color.
