Lane Bryant’s Side Peplum Shift Dress looks like separates that you fussed over to make them lay just so. But since it’s all one piece, it falls right into place. The side peplum looks like it includes two layers of black fabric beneath a layer of botanical print – but wait, that’s only one layer of fabric with two black ruffles sewn on. You get added volume without added bulk.

The darts, seaming and straight skirt are most flattering for women with hourglass, rectangle, and inverted triangle shaped bodies.
