Sheath dress

In fashion, a sheath dress is a type of dress designed to fit close to the body, relatively unadorned.

Unlike the shorter cocktail dress and the longer ballroom dress, a sheath dress typically falls around the knees or lower thighs.

First Lady Michelle Obama and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge are both known for their wearing of sheath dresses.

Some brands well known for their sheath dresses include Ralph Lauren, Prada, and Marc Jacobs.[1]
