There is no such thing as “perfect” let alone a perfect body type – everyone has their flaws, everyone has their strengths. The key is knowing which is which and the tricks on how to either downplay or maximize those certain areas.
Below you will find a few quick tips on finding the right dress for your body type.
DEFINE A WAIST
Wanting to create an hourglass shape – cinched in waists, belted midsection and ruching in the middle will do the trick.
A short hem, a formfitting cut is a great way to elongate the legs – a straight and streamlined fit is highly suggested. And a pair of high heels is also great for adding inches to the frame.
ENHANCE THE BUST
Sweetheart cuts, bustier fits, structured fits, strapless dresses, detailing, ruffles, ruching around the bust area is a great way to give your chest a lift.
The quickest way to enhance curves is by wearing tiered ruffles or draping at the bottom or detailing at the top with a fitted bottom.
