Although ruching may seem like the perfect solution to a figure flaw, it may not be perfect for “every” plus size body type. Depending on where the ruching is, and how it draws the eye away from the figure flaw, can be a positive thing. Where the ruching is situated and draws the eye to the side, and sits lower on the body, can be affected. If the ruching and gathering is too high under the bust, it can have a negative effect. So be careful when choosing ruching as a plus size gal!
