Empire Line

    Empire Line Dresses

    Designed to fit and flatter, Leina and Fleur’s range of jersey dresses are cut in sizes 8-24, that’s petite to plus size, so that women of all shapes can shop our dress range with confidence. Our empire line dresses are a great example of how L&F designs clothing with women’s body shapes in mind. 

    What is an Empire Line on a Dress?

    Featuring a bodice that finishes above the natural waistline, just under the bust, an empire line dress is great for camouflaging fuller tummies making it a great dress shape for apple shaped women, plus sizes and fuller-figure women. 

    Because empire line dress bodices sit high, the extra fabric above the waist creates the illusion of a longer, taller silhouette, and consequently a slimming effect. At L&F, we maximise this effect with our empire line maxi dresses but the fullness of our midi-length skirts create figure-flattering empire line dress styles too, that also work for petite height women. 

    As well as varying hemlines, our empire line dresses come with various sleeve options. From sleeveless to short sleeves, flutter sleeves to ¾ sleeves, L&F’s empire line dresses will transition the seasons with you.

    Empire Line Dresses for Workwear or Travel

    Available in our classic core colours, shop L&F empire line dresses in black or navy jersey for everyday workwear style or evening wear elegance. For dresses with presence, our trend-inspired, fashion prints add a bold edge to classic empire line styles. While many of our dresses are made in jersey, our empire line dresses work well too, in our sustainable, natural-fibre fabrics which make them great lightweight summer dresses and travel holiday essentials.
