Let’s be honest. There is nothing more girly and nothing more sexy than a dress. A well-tailored dress, made just for you. On the other hand, since our bodies are not as perfect as we would like to, the smartest thing we can do is to accentuate those features we’re proud of, and a nice dress can help us in achieving the right effect.
So take a look at these few fashion tips that will help you choose the perfect dress according to your body type.
It’s best if we started from the top. If you have heavy arms, then sleeveless, cap sleeve or A-type dresses aren’t your cup of tea. It would be best to choose dresses with bell sleeves or dresses which cover more than a half or 3/4 of your flacid arms.
If you have broad shoulders, you too should avoid neckless dresses and find those with longer sleeves. The key is to accentuate some other feature, for example – find a dress with a big full skirt or an empire.
If, like the majority of girls, the nature hasn’t given you ample breast, then the wisest choice for you is to avoid dresses with deep necklines.
Instead, you can look for dresses with scoop or bandeau neck and combine them with big necklaces or scarves.
They are still popular this season, and will stay for another season or two. Also, if your hair is long, you can try with letting it fall over your cheast.
On the other hand, if nature was on your side and gave you a big bust, you can accentuate it with V-neck dresses and dresses with halter tops. You may want to avoid dresses with tight top part, in order for your big bust not to look too big.
If you are straight-shaped, then it would be best to look for dresses which would look great with a belt – because you want to visually overcome the imperfection.
If you are apple-shaped, then choose a dress with a drop-waist or with an empire, to shift focus away from the belly. Belts can help you too, but, make sure to put them a bit lower – around your hips.
If you are pear-shaped, with full hips and legs, then you should first try to draw the attention to other parts of the body – using, for example, V-neck dresses, halter top, or without a neckline. Then, the lower part of the dress should be like the inverted triangle – the so called A-line skirt, but not too full.
Next, the length of the skirt should be below the knees – so choose a bit longer dresses. If your legs and hips are too thin, then you can try looking for dresses with long skirts or full A-line skirts, that will visually add up and correct the imperfections.
And remember, whatever your body type and whatever your flaws are – shifting focus and moving it to other parts that are more prominent using accessories will do wonders!
