There are many reasons you might choose a dress: color, style, or even current style trends. However, it is a fact that we tend to love most the dresses that best compliment or suit our specific body type. These dresses are the ones that make women everywhere feel the most comfortable, confident, and beautiful in their own skin.
Here are some tips to keep in mind while shopping on TheDressList.com to help you choose the dress best suited to your unique and beautiful body:
Never hide from your curves! Wearing oversized or larger-than-need-be clothing is baggy and will hide your shape and make anyone who wears it look bigger than they actually are. By embracing the curve, and our body shapes, clothes will become more flattering. Women with curvy bodies should enhance their natural beauty by accentuating their features. Create a sensual and beautiful look by emphasizing the curves around the chest and hips. Girls with curves are naturally gorgeous: highlight that beauty with skinny jeans, fit jackets, pencils skirts, and off of the shoulder tops. When in doubt, grab a fit and flare dress – flattering for any body type!
If you have an apple shaped figure, you probably have a larger bust, broad shoulders, narrower hips, and a lesser defined waist. It can be a very difficult figure to work with. A great dress for an apple shaped girl, would be a drop-waist dress, which hits right around the hip bones, or you could try an empire waisted dress with a raised waist. Buy dresses with full skirts will add shape to the hips and a V-neck or plunging neckline will beautifully enhance natural chest curves.
Are your hips narrow, a small bust, and itty bitty hips? Don’t you worry! There are TONS of women who have this particular body style and are drop dead gorgeous! To bring out the natural loveliness of this figure, buy dresses that add a lot of curves. Embellishments, ruffles, or fullness can add shape and emphasis to the bust and cinched in waistlines can draw attention to the waist and add some fullness to the figure.
Typically, a pear shaped woman will have wider hips and thighs, narrower shoulders, and a smaller bust. When choosing a dress for this body style, remember to draw all the attention up top. The point is to show off your fabulous arms, back and bust. Buying dresses that are fitted up top, like a halter top, will show off your waist. Dresses that have full or A-line skirts will grace over the curves giving them a beautiful accent without overdoing it.
Everyone wants to have the envied hourglass body shape. However, contrary to most supermodels nowadays, the hourglass body shape is very round and curvy. As long as one does not shirk away from these natural curves, this body style is very easy to decorate and flaunt. Usually, these women will have a full bust, nearly the same size as the hips, a small and well-defined waist, and shapely legs. Try buying dresses with bodices as they will enhance natural curves and accentuate the waist while lifting the bust. Strapless or off of the shoulder necklines are perfect for this shape as well!
