A-Line Waist

These dresses are made to fit your waist and then gradually flare out towards the hem. A-line dresses are excellent for minimizing thighs, hips, and midsections while pulling the eyes to your bust. This style of dress is a great fit for almost any body type. There's a reason why so many brides settle on A-Line dresses for their big day! With plenty of varieties, this is a kind of dress that you can wear again and again.

Empire Waist

Like the A-Line style, empire dresses are made to fit through your bust. Rather than creating a distinctly angular shape like the A-Line, the Empire style flows from the bust down. This is another kind of dress that fits many body types. From curvy to apple body shapes, the Empire draws focus to your bust and minimizes everything else. For lovely ladies on the shorter side, this style defines your silhouette, especially if you choose a maxi length dress.

Drop Waist

A throwback to the roaring 20's style flapper dresses, Drop Waist dresses look best on lean, athletic bodies that don't have too many curves in the hip area. The key to pulling off a Drop Waist style dress is to ensure that it's not hugging you. This dress is best worn when it is able to hang freely on your body.

Fit & Flare Dresses in Raleigh

Any clothing store for women in Raleigh, NC, worth its salt, will have plenty of fit & flare dresses for you to try. This common-shaped dress is one of the most popular on the market, mainly because they look great on every woman, regardless of age or shape.

Time to start doing your happy dance! Fit & flare dresses have very balanced proportions, making them a true winner for every body type.

Shift Dresses in Raleigh

Shift dresses are typically rectangular in shape and tend to be comfy and forgiving since they aren't fitted. Also called a column dress, the shift dress is a great choice for polished professionals needing a conservative, fashionable outfit for work.
These dresses look fabulous on women with athletic, lean shapes and women with an apple-like figure. This kind of dress doesn't work well with a belt, so ladies with an hourglass figure may not be able to show off their curves in a shift. Try pairing this dress with a nice pair of heels for a beautiful new look!

Wrap Dresses in Raleigh

Wrap dresses are one of the most popular styles on the market, because they give ladies of most shapes and sizes a flattering, fashionable dress option.

Wrap dresses give you a balanced silhouette and, with a knee-length fit, are great for any type of color or style, both day and nightwear.

How to Find the Right Fit for Your Women's Top

When choosing a women's top for your outfit, you have to consider how comfortable, confident, and beautiful you will feel. The best way to feel your best in an outfit is to make sure it fits correctly. To get started, you'll want to take your measurements. For most women's tops, the best areas to focus on are your hips, waist, and chest.

  • Hip Measurements: Measuring your hips is fairly easy. Take your measuring tape and use it to wrap around the widest area of your hips.
  • Waist Measurements: Take your measuring tape and place it at the very top of your hip bone. Wrap it all the way around your body. Try to keep your measuring tape in line with your belly button. For the most accurate measurements, stand up straight and breathe normally.
  • Chest Measurements: For an accurate chest measurement, take the end of your measuring tape and place it on the fullest area of your bust. From there, wrap the tape around your body, under your armpits, and around the blades of your shoulders. Then, wrap the tape tightly from the back of your body to the front, where you started.

BREAKING: 2022 PF Mady Traore commits to NC State

RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State has landed a commitment from 2022 center Mady Traore of Charlotte (N.C.) Bull City Prep.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State has landed a commitment from 2022 center Mady Traore of Charlotte (N.C.) Bull City Prep. Traore will take the 12th and final scholarship spot for the 2022-23 season and plans to join the roster in August to prepare for his freshman season with the Wolfpack.

Traore is currently ranked as the No. 32 center and No. 7 player in Maryland in the 2022 class, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings. The 6-foot-11, 210-pound big man has a 7-foot-3 wing span, 9-foot-5 standing reach and said he will play both the power forward and center position with NC State at the next level.

While he's not currently rated inside the Top 150 players for the 2022 class, Traore was once considered one of the top centers in the country for his class. Originally the No. 95 player overall at this time last year, Traore held a 91 rating and a four-star ranking as one of the most versatile players in the class.

Traore held offers from Kansas, Illinois, Oregon, Auburn, Florida, Arizona State, LSU, Pittsburgh and several others before committing to the Wolfpack.

A strong showing at the NBA Academy in Atlanta recently caught the eye of lead recruiter and Wolfpack assistant Levi Watkins. And after a talk with Kevin Keatts, Traore earned an offer from the Wolfpack and decided to make his decision. The commitment comes after several talks with both Keatts and Watkins, leading to Traore becoming the 12th player on the Pack's roster.

The French big man has split his time between playing at Charlotte (N.C.) Bull City Prep last year and played with Team Thrill and the Georgia Stars on the Nike EYBL circuit. He was also briefly teammates with current Wolfpack freshman L.J. Thomas, who he will join as the lone enrollees for the 2022 class.

Traore joins a roster that includes multiple experienced forwards in Ebenezer Dowuona,Ernest Ross, Greg Gantt, D.J. Burns andDusan Mahorcic, which will give him time to develop as a true freshman. But with a solid frame and an ability to stretch the floor, Traore could make an impact for the Pack in the near future.

Pack Pride will have much more on Traore's commitment to the Wolfpack throughout the day and over the weekend.

East Carolina baseball player shows promise after serious boating injury, NC mom says

A college baseball player is showing promise after a severe boating injury in North Carolina, his mom said.

Parker Byrd, a freshman at East Carolina University in Greenville, was tubing on a creek when officials said part of a boat hit him in the legs on July 23. Though he required surgery, he narrowly missed becoming more seriously hurt.

“The propeller came 1 millimeter from cutting that nerve in half and if that would have happened, he would have lost the whole leg, according to the surgeon,” his mom, who The Laurinburg Exchange and 247Sports have identified as Mitzi Lee Byrd, wrote July 28 on Facebook.

Nearly a week after the close call, she said her son continues to be on the mend. She shared an update from his surgeon in an online post.

“He says that P will be able to walk, run, and live a normal life,” the mom wrote. “I know many have asked and wondered about his baseball future. He said he couldn’t guarantee it but that it was definitely a possibility that he would get back on the ball field with intensive therapy and hard work.”

As Parker Byrd continues to recover, his friends and teammates flocked outside his hospital window to show support. Photos show Byrd becoming emotional as friends held signs and balloons on the top of a nearby parking deck.

“We cracked the window and they yelled out well wishes,” his mom wrote. “I can’t tell you what this meant to him. To see the love and support from his best friends and to see they were there for him ... I have no words! He perked up so much after that.”

In response to a request for information about the case, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission in an emailed statement told McClatchy News two tubers were on Bath Creek in Eastern North Carolina when a “rope got caught” in the propeller, pulling one of them toward a boat. The propeller cut both of his legs.

“He was immediately grabbed by his friends on the vessel and taken out of the water,” the statement said. “They applied a tourniquet.”

They flagged down a boat that had a nurse on board, who helped them figure out how to use another tourniquet. The injured tuber was later flown to a hospital in Greenville, according to officials.

Byrd was an infielder when he attended Scotland High School in Laurinburg. He committed to the ECU Pirates, a team that boasted a 46-21 record and was ranked among the top Division 1 programs last season, McClatchy News reported.

“My thoughts and prayers are with Parker Byrd and his family,” Jon Gilbert, athletic director for ECU, said in a written statement. “Our focus is on him and the recovery process. Coach (Cliff) Godwin and our baseball staff have been supporting the family during their time of need.”

Mitzi Lee Byrd didn’t immediately share additional information with McClatchy News on July 25.

Greenville is approximately 85 miles east of Raleigh.

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- It is going to be hot once again Friday. Feels-like temperatures could reach as high as 110 in some areas.

A heat advisory is in effect from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. for most of central North Carolina, with high heat and humidity once again increasing the risk of heat illnesses.

Conditions will be mainly dry through late this afternoon. We're in for a rather humid day with highs reaching the mid and upper 90s. Most storms should hold off until after 4-5 p.m. Scattered shower and storm chances will gradually increase tonight.

There is good news and bad news when it comes to weather this weekend. Temperatures will finally go down, but our chances of storms will go up. We can expect increasing clouds with mainly afternoon showers and thunderstorms on Saturday. There is a chance that rain and storms hold off for the Triangle during the day with more activity father south over the Sandhills. If this drier trend holds, highs will be closer to 90.

For Raleigh resident Roger Wilkerson, a transformer in the Method community outside had another purpose on Thursday.

"Because it's cooler and I'm in the shade," Wilkerson said, sitting on the transformer with his cane propped beside him.

Wilkerson, who was taking a walk for his health, took a break on the hot summer day.

"I normally walk around the block because I just had a stroke last year," Wilkerson said. "I'd normally be inside. If they had more shade, or trees out here, would make it cooler."

Fayetteville's Fire Department is taking special precautions to protect firefighters from the sweltering temperatures during the ongoing heat waves this summer. The department's Captain Stephen Shakeshaft explains that having an abundance of equipment and manpower is key to keeping crews safe while battling fires.

"Anytime we're experiencing an extreme heat wave we make sure to send extra resources to calls that may require extra breaks. So whether it's a structure fire or an outside woods fire, we have a set amount of resources we send to those calls," said Shakeshaft. "That way, folks get the extra break that they need to stay hydrated and stay cool."

Hotter than usual

Summer in North Carolina is always hot, but this year has been particularly brutal.

Raleigh has already seen more 90 degree days in 2022 than the city averages for all of summer. As for 95-degree days, Raleigh has already nearly doubled its annual average.

So far, we're looking at the third-hottest year on record in North Carolina. If this year remains in the top 10 hottest historically, it will mean that the state's 10 hottest years will all have happened in the 21st century.

"This is climate change," State Climatologist Dr. Kathie Dello said.

The excessive and persistent heat can affect existing infrastructure, including roadways.

"Asphalt does get softer as the temperature gets warmer, and that can make asphalt pavements a little more prone to rutting and shoving during warm temperatures like we've been having. It's also sometimes in concrete pavements due to expansion of the concrete, you can get those pavements buckling up a little bit. That's a rare occurrence in North Carolina. It has happened in the past, but we haven't had an occurrence of that in the last several years that I'm aware of," said Clark Morrison, who is the State Pavement Design Engineer for NCDOT.

Morrison said crews using the right asphalt mix can stave off some issues.

"We have a seal-coating process that covers the asphalt and it stops the oxidation process, or slows it down. It seals the crack and it creates a surface between the asphalt and the vehicles that are going over it," noted Mike Stephenson, President of Paving Professionals Inc. in Raleigh, which specializes in commercial properties.

Stephenson said they've seen an uptick in calls this summer, and anticipates that to continue as temperatures remain elevated.

"With the heat, we've had a lot of damage due to heavy vehicles turning, rutting in the asphalt. It's just been very hot. And with the nature of asphalt, there has been more damage," said Stephenson.

The excessive heat can cause asphalt to soften, and eventually, leave it susceptible to cracks or potholes.

Data shows more than one-third of occupational heat-related deaths in the U.S. were construction workers, from 1992 to 2016.

"Cement masons were 10 times more likely to die from heat than the average construction worker," the study found. "Roofers and helpers were seven times more likely."

OSHA currently doesn't have a specific standard for hazardous heat conditions, but as the agency works to develop it, the N.C. department of labor said it is focusing a significant amount of time on outreach, education and training.

"Here at NCDOL, we are in the process of gathering information which will help our staff determine what solutions make sense for North Carolina," NCDOL said.

OSHA included rulemaking on Heat Illness Prevention in Outdoor and Indoor Work Settings in the pre-rule stage and said they're reviewing the Public Citizen report.

"We have received thousands of comments from stakeholders and employers that will help guide our work in developing an all-encompassing final rule based on the most recently available science and data," OSHA's Doug Parker said. "Rulemaking takes time, and it's critical that we get it right."

European heatwave

North Carolina is not the only place seeing hotter than usual temperatures.

In fact, European countries have been dealing with some of the hottest temperatures ever recorded in their areas.

The United Kingdom shattered its heat record multiple times in mid-July. The previous record high temperature in the UK was 101.7 degrees, but the country reached 104.4 degrees on July 19.

The sweltering weather disrupted travel, health care and schools in a country not prepared for such extremes. A huge chunk of England, from London in the south to Manchester and Leeds in the north, saw the country's first "red" warning for extreme heat -- meaning there is danger of death even for healthy people.

At least six people were reported to have drowned across the U.K. in rivers, lakes and reservoirs while trying to cool off. Nearly 750 heat-related deaths have been reported in Spain and neighboring Portugal in the heat wave there.

"This record temperature is a harbinger of things to come,'' said Bob Ward of the Grantham Research Institute at the London School of Economics. "The increase in the frequency and intensity of heat waves and other extreme weather events is the result of climate change, and these impacts will continue to grow" unless the world drastically reduces emissions.

Gov. Roy Cooper has chosen a familiar figure in North Carolina energy circles to lead the administration’s clean energy efforts.

Cooper announced Wednesday that he has hired Peter Ledford as the state’s clean energy director. For the last eight years, Ledford has worked as an attorney for the N.C. Sustainable Energy Association.

Under Cooper, the clean energy director has played a key role in energy negotiations with the N.C. General Assembly while also implementing executive orders that are guiding how state government approaches the state’s transition.

“Peter Ledford has the years of experience, knowledge and dedication needed to help North Carolina as we move toward a clean energy economy,” Cooper said.

Dionne Delli-Gatti, who previously held the clean energy director job, left in May to return to the Environmental Defense Fund.

Cooper initially hired Delli-Gatti to serve as secretary of the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality. He assigned her to the clean energy post when the N.C. Senate denied the confirmation.

As clean energy director, Delli-Gatti led negotiations for the administration on House Bill 951, which turned emissions reduction from power generation that had been targets for Cooper into state law. Delli-Gatti also helped develop Executive Order 246, which called for the state to develop a plan to slash emissions from the transportation sector and for cabinet agencies to more deliberately consider environmental justice in their decision-making.

“Dionne has been an extraordinary leader for our state, helping focus our efforts to transition to a clean energy economy and lay the groundwork for our continued efforts to combat climate change,” Cooper said.

Before working for the Sustainable Energy Association, Ledford was a legislative analyst and staff attorney at the N.C. General Assembly. He is a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill and the School of Law at Wake Forest University.

“I’m ready to put my experience working at the NC General Assembly and practicing before NC Utilities Commission, and my relationships with stakeholders and the clean energy industry to work, so we can make more progress on the important issues of clean energy, reducing carbon emissions, and the associated economic benefits for all North Carolinians,” Ledford said in a statement.

In his Sustainable Energy Association work, Ledford has become one of the state’s most outspoken advocates for renewable energy sources like solar and wind. His work can frequently be found in filings at the N.C. Utilities Commission, and he is often interviewed for news articles about the state’s energy transition.

Ledford has been critical of Duke Energy’s plans to reduce carbon to meet the goals in House Bill 951. Shortly after Duke filed its plan in May, Ledford criticized the fact that three of the four scenarios outlined by Duke would allow the utility to meet the bill’s 70% target after 2030 because of the construction of wind farms or small modular nuclear reactors.

“It’s like a college student asking for an extension on the final paper on the very first day of the semester,” Ledford told The News & Observer. “We’re barely out of the gate, and Duke is already saying that it can’t be done.”

Farm Aid, the full-day music festival celebrating American family farmers, will come to Raleigh for the second time this September, organizers announced Tuesday.

Farm Aid 2022 will take place Saturday, Sept. 24, at Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek. Tickets will go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 30, at LiveNation.com.

This year’s festival will feature Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews (with Tim Reynolds), and Margo Price, as well as Chris Stapleton, Sheryl Crow, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Allison Russell, Charley Crockett, Brittney Spencer and Particle Kid, according to a news release.

“The festival will showcase how farmers are leading the way to mitigate climate change by sharing their stories on the Farm Aid stage and throughout the event,” the release stated.

Farm Aid has raised $64 million in 35 years. The festival last took place in Raleigh in 2014, according to the release.

“I’ve always said that family farmers strengthen us all,” Nelson, Farm Aid’s president and founder, said in the release.

“Farmers in North Carolina, across the Southeast, and all over the country are growing solutions to our toughest challenges, including climate change,” he said. ”We’re bringing Farm Aid here to highlight their hard work and celebrate the ways we can all join farmers to help.”

Agriculture generates $92.7 billion annually and employing 17.5% of the state’s workforce (more than 700,000 jobs), according to the release. Across North Carolina, climate change is affecting rural communities, especially communities of color, and those working on the state’s 41,500 farms, the release stated.

“North Carolina farmers are implementing techniques to mitigate climate change, including planting crops to cover soil between growing seasons, rotating crops, reducing soil tillage, integrating livestock and crop production, raising pastured livestock, and improving soil and water management,” the release stated.

Tickets prices range from $75 to $315 and will be available for purchase at LiveNation.com. A limited number of pre-sale tickets will be available at 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 27, at farmaid.org/tickets.

Farm Aid will monitor the COVID-19 situation and will update protocols leading up to the festival, organizers said.

Country lifestyle network Circle will broadcast the festival live on air, as well as on its Facebook, Twitter and TikTok pages (@CircleAllAccess). Fans can find Circle on its linear feed and across most streaming platforms, including Roku, DISH, Samsung TV Plus, Peacock, VIZIO SmartCast, Tubi, Redbox and more.
