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.

Once you know the kind of waist that fits your body type, it's time to find your shape. A few of our most popular dress shapes include:

Fit & Flare Dresses in Wake Forest

Any clothing store for women in Wake Forest, 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. A timeless choice, fit & flare dresses fit through the bodice and flare out just below your hip. This helps develop a balanced, slimming silhouette for most women. If you want to accentuate your best assets and hide everything else, ask our experienced fashionistas to show you some the most popular fit & flare dresses at Copper Penny.
Time to start doing your happy dance! Fit & flare dresses have very balanced proportions, making them a true winner for every body type. Women with athletic builds love this dress for the extra curves. Women with apple-shaped bodies love how fit & flare dresses define their waistlines.

Shift Dresses in Wake Forest

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 Wake Forest

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.
If you have an hourglass, apple, or generally curvy body shape, you're going to love wrap dresses. This style of dress offers a natural waist while placing emphasis on your bust. 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.

Wake Forest dominated the first half of the game against North Carolina State. Frankly, coach Steve Forbes has built up a lot of goodwill over the last several years showing that his teams are able to win in high pressure situations. There was a lot of reason to believe that Wake Forest would ultimately come away the victors. However, what followed over the last approximately 10 minutes of game time was an absolute comedy of errors that was indicative of a complete 180 from the brand of basketball that has been so successful in Wake Forest winning nine of its last 11 games and being 4-2 in the ACC so far this year. There’s a reason that before this game, Joe Lunardi had the Demon Deacons making the NCAA tournament, albeit not particularly comfortably. They know what they have to do to win, the team has an abundance of leaders and players who can come through in clutch situations, and frankly, this might be overall the least selfish Wake Forest basketball team I can remember watching in almost 20 years of dedicated sports fandom. So I, much like the Wake Forest team itself, find myself at something of a crossroads right now. Recent information would tell me that the team is going to rebound from this, no pun intended, and use this loss as motivation and a way to remind themselves and each other what they have been doing to be so successful. However, Wake Forest basketball history over the last 15 to 20 years (approximately) would dictate that the team and the coaching staff will begin to unravel after a loss like this, and ultimately find themselves in the exact same place that they have for so long: on the outside looking in, just barely not in the NCAA tournament. A successful season by some metrics, perhaps a step in the right direction, but ultimately coming up just short or maybe even very short of where they could have been. Without getting too deep in the weeds, the biggest issue that led to the collapse was players trying to do too much by themselves. The ball stopped moving, too much dribbling was occurring, and the North Carolina State pressure on defense caused our offense to completely and totally unravel.

Combine that with the fact that North Carolina State was suddenly loose and incredibly successful at the free throw line after starting off woefully bad in the beginning of the game, and it ultimately spelled doom for Wake Forest. I’ve come to the conclusion this basketball season, both in my NCAA consumption, and my consumption of the product available in the NBA, that nothing annoys me more than turnovers. Don’t get me wrong, I know that some turnovers are inevitable. They’re part of the game of basketball. But when one team has real control over the game, and they are clearly capable of going long stretches with having good, crisp passing that leads to successful offense, it never ceases to both infuriate and baffle me that a team of high level basketball players and coaches cannot get a rampant epidemic of turnovers more under control before the wheels completely fall off. Frankly, I’m probably just heated right now. I’m almost certainly overreacting to a single game on the road in the conference against an in state rival who needed a heroic comeback in order to topple the team. However, the really unfortunate part about watching a game like that is that you can’t get the taste out of your mouth until the next game happens. And until the next game happens, and you’re given concrete reason to believe the more optimistic of the two possibilities moving forward, it’s extremely difficult to shrug off.

Of course, I know I’m not saying anything that the players and coaches don’t already know themselves. Hell, they’re probably way more bothered by this than I am. Coach Forbes and his entire team have clearly shown a lot of character both this season and seasons in the recent past, so it’s a pretty reasonable guess that they’ll turn things around and get back on the winning track. For all I know, come March, this won’t be anything more than a blip on the radar that slightly affects the seeding for Wake Forest in the NCAA tournament. But I won’t know until I know, and given the amount of garbage that we have all been through as fans of Wake Forest basketball before Coach Forbes came to town, I’d be lying if I said that my gut wasn’t telling me it’s about to get real ugly for a while. I’ve never hoped more to be wrong.

Either way, this game is a turning point. It’s the first really ugly loss that the Deacs have suffered this season. It’s the first loss, especially in conference, where i can sit here and say they well and truly had it in their hands and decided to give it away, both literally and figuratively. So it’s time to see what the team is made of. We’ll find out a lot about them over the next few games. Coach Forbes and his squad have probably earned an extremely long leash at this point. But after a game like that, I’m sure glad they have.

On to the next. Go Deacs.

North Carolina State Wolfpack @ Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Current Records: North Carolina State 15-8, Wake Forest 15-7

Wake Forest is 2-8 against the Wolfpack since February of 2019 but they'll have a chance to close the gap a little bit on Saturday. Both teams will face off in an ACC battle at 4:00 p.m. ET at LJVM Coliseum. Wake Forest will be looking to keep their 12-game home win streak alive.

In what's become a running theme this season, Wake Forest gave their fans yet another huge win on Tuesday. They simply couldn't be stopped as they easily beat the Yellow Jackets 80-51 on the road. The game was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 46-20.

Wake Forest got their win on the backs of several key players, but it was Cameron Hildreth out in front who scored 17 points along with three steals. Andrew Carr was another key contributor, dropping a double-double on 13 points and ten rebounds.

Meanwhile, the point spread may have favored North Carolina State last Wednesday, but the final result did not. They fell just short of the Panthers by a score of 67-64. North Carolina State has not had much luck with the Panthers recently, as the team's come up short the last two times they've met.

The losing side was boosted by DJ Horne, who scored 25 points. He is on a roll when it comes to points, as he's now scored 24 or more in the last three games he's played. Another player making a difference was DJ Burns Jr., who scored 19 points along with five rebounds.

The Demon Deacons' win ended a four-game drought on the road and puts them at 15-7. As for the Wolfpack, their defeat dropped their record down to 15-8.

Some high-performance offense is likely on the agenda as both teams are some of the highest scoring teams in the league. Wake Forest hasn't had any problem running up the score this season, having averaged 80.7 points per game. However, it's not like North Carolina State struggles in that department as they've been averaging 75.2 points per game. With both teams so easily able to put up points, the only question left is who can run the score up higher.

Going forward, Wake Forest is the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by eight points. They might be worth a quick bet since they're sitting on a four game streak of covering the spread when expected to win.

Wake Forest is a big 8-point favorite against North Carolina State, according to the latest college basketball odds.

The oddsmakers were right in line with the betting community on this one, as the game opened as a 8-point spread, and stayed right there.

The over/under is set at 151.5 points.
