Which Dress To Wear For Your Body Type
Everybody, and EVERY BODY are different. Learning to dress your body type makes finding the right DRESS a cinch! Below are 5 Main Body Types, and the perfect dress for each type. This is just a basic starting point, and most of us are a combination of these types anyway.
1. FULL HIPS & THIGHS
For us ladies who are PEAR shaped, and have thicker bottoms, an A-LINE Dress is a MUST!
It is cinched at the waist, and that defines the middle, making more of an hourglass shape.
2. FULL WAIST/ MIDDLE
For ladies that have an APPLE SHAPE, the type of dress you should wear is an EMPIRE OR DROP WAIST to re-define your waistline. Low waistlines hide the middle, and draw attention away from the waist. An EMPIRE cut dress sits right below our breasts.
3. Small Bust
If you have a small bus you are an INVERTED TRIANGLE SHAPE.Stay away from plunging necklines, and opt for a simple SHEATH DRESS that doesn't draw attention to your bust. Also wear a dress with a DETAILED BODICE, which will create the illusion of a larger bust size.
4. Slim or Thin
The really thin petite lady has a RECTANGLE SHAPE and should wear a dress that both adds curves, and shape. You create the illusion of an hourglass figure with the HALTER DRESS and/or PEPLUM cut which enhances the look of larger HIPS.
5. All Body Types
Every lady should have the GO-TO-DRESS! The perfect dress cut for ANY BODY TYPE is the SHIFT DRESS. It flatters every body type, and flows perfectly. Pick a POP Color for extra OOOMPH!
6. Hourglass Shape
If you have an HOURGLASS SHAPE you are perfectly proportioned, and have the right balance on top, and bottom. This helps in finding the perfect dress, as you can wear multiple styles, and cuts. Just find the perfect one for you.
I hope you found this Blog Post helpful, as I tried to break it down to the basics. Color is also an option for helping to camouflage the negative, and accentuate the positive.
