Bubble Hem

Do not give in to the comfortable look of "Bubble Fashion". I can tell you right now without even looking at you that a bubble dress, skirt, blouse, or tunic will not look flattering on you no matter what your body type is or how you would customize it.

I'm not sure what the idea behind this look is. Honestly I can't think of a single positive thing about them. These items have wasteful amounts of fabric and a tapered hem which causes the body of the fabric to 'bubble' over. Very prego looking. The studded bubble top on the right is from Forever21. Do not purchase it.

Even worse: dresses and skirts. I simply do not understand them. I can't believe that "teen midscale" label BCBG would even put a bubble hem dress on the market. Not even couture fashion maven Max Azria could make this fad work. I assure you that it's a blessing in disguise.

With love,
Sparrow

Honestly, it looks like something one makes at one in the morning with an old sheet and bad sewing skillz.

To be honest I have seen the bubble hem successfully worn once. past that I have not see it worn well again. The worst are the shirts/tunics. They create the lovely illusion of having a large protruding belly... ick!
