I am talking about this side swept bodice and skirt ruching business. I know it’s ruching but is there a specific term for it that I can use when searching? I have tried just “ruched bodice” and so forth but it’s not really specific enough. Sometimes it’s on the skirt, sometimes bodice and skirt.. either way it looks as if fabric has been pulled over to one side of the dress. Just wondered if there was another term I wasn’t aware of, because I discovered that this look is quite flattering on me. Here are some pics of what I’m talking about:

Most of what you post has asymetrical ruching, but I’m not sure if that is the correct term for it.

Those dresses also all have a dropped waist; lower than a traditional waist but not low enough to be considered fit and flare/mermaid/trumpet. 🙂
