Ruching is one of those trends that you never want to go out of style because of how flattering it can be. Ruching is a gathering of fabric on a garment that gives a detail of interest through its ripple effect. It was a popular trend in the 80s and repeated in the early 2000s through bodycon dresses. This style in its modern twist (sorry 80s puffball sleeves and metres of taffeta) is universally flattering. It makes a garment look sophisticated and lavish and can even give a slimming effect to your body. This intricate detail adds a hint of extravagance and adds texture and shape to a piece. It’s a perfect addition to your wardrobe if you are not a fan of prints but you still want to jazz up your basic solid-coloured pieces.
Here are some of our favourite ruched styles at Bamboo Body that are perfect for you depending on your body shape and your styling goals.
Introducing the Selena
The best part about ruching is that it hugs your curves in all the right places and slims down the figure by accentuating the narrowest part of your waist. Adding a small percentage of spandex to these styles allows for incredible elasticity - meaning that ruched styles will shape you perfectly.
The Selena is a classic style, and like all our ruched style dresses - it loves your curves! An absolute wardrobe essential and in a new versatile Black shade, the Selena can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion.

Ruched skirts are amazingly versatile as the ruching allows you to adjust the skirt to your desired length.
