The Perfect Dress Style For Your Shape

We all know how absolutely fab-u-lous the little black dress is. Not only has it outlived numerous trends through the decades but, it  works splendidly for any body shape and budget.

You may be someone who has had a bad experience purchasing dresses, bringing them home and realizing they do not flatter your shape at all.  It's happened to us all.

Not to worry ladies … here are some great examples to help you with your own personal dilemma. Black is complimentary, hides the flaws and absolutely stunning and chic when combined with the right accessories and heels.

Busty Figures - V-Neck, Halter & Scoop Neck shown below are what you need as well as a button down option not shown. You want to stay away from ruffles, puckering & shirring detail that runs across t he bust line and high empire waists.

Full Curvy Figures - Need to minimize but, don't hide. Again V-Neck, Scoop & Square Necklines will compliment your chest area. Belted dresses to accentuate your waistline and Wrap Dresses will adjust to your curves.

Pear Shapes - Small bust line with voluptuous hips bottom and thighs. Empire, scoop, square neck and diagonal cuts will compliment a small bust line. Stay away from a fitted bottom. Shirting should flair and the material should not be clingy.

Petite frame with Curvy Bottom - Need to elongate your body because you are short to begin with. Princess shape, belted, wrapped styles will compliment your curves. Again stay away from flimsy and thin fabrics that will cling to your curves.
