It’s that time of year again. That time when we’re all having to buy a formal dress. Whether it’s a dress for prom or a bridesmaid’s dress, the selections can really be overwhelming. Between the different types of fabrics, the structural design of the dresses, and the enormity of the event itself, everything can be overwhelming.
Don’t let it stress you out. With these simple tips to find figure flattering dresses, you can find a gown that looks amazing on you, no matter what your figure is like.
Are you an Apple shape? Flaunt your curves with an empire-waist dress, which nips you under your bust and flows out around your curves, creating a flattering silhouette.
What about an Hourglass? An hourglass figure means you’re well proportioned and don’t need to disguise anything. Consider yourself lucky; almost every style will flatter you.
Maybe you’re more of a Pear shape. Look for fitted tops and full or A-line skirts. If you feel comfortable, try a form fitting style to showcase your booty.
How about the Petite ladies? Show a little leg and go with a short, asymmetrical hemline or long fitted solid prom dress to make you appear taller.
If you have a Small Bust, emphasize the bust area with an embellished or a v-shaped neckline that will boost your bust.
Keep these simple tips in mind while you’re out shopping for figure flattering dresses, and you’re sure to be among the best dressed.
