The Dropwaist Shift

We cannot tell you how many requests to design a simple but elegant dropwaist dress we fielded before launching this shift. Some body types can be hard to flatter, and a dropwaist, where the waist seam hits around the hip, is really flattering on straight and busty figures, while also looking fab on apple and hourglass shapes. And for pear-shaped women, dropwaists have been tough to wear; too tight at the hip and loose in the bust. Our signature fit system corrects  those fit issues and makes this a dress for every body type.   


Customizable details on the Dropwaist Shift include sleeves, fabric, and hem length. We can also eliminate the front pockets. Simply mention any alterations you would like in the Custom Request box.

But Wait! How Do I select a size?

We do fit differently: rather than selecting an arbitrary size now, you'll take a fit quiz when you create an account. Learn more about The Kit Fit.
