All bodies are beautiful, and your body shape, structure, and your height should never come in the way of you wearing the dresses of your choice. As long as you feel confident, you should not be bothered by what someone might have to say about your clothing choice.
Certain tips and tricks help you look your best. These are not hard and fast rules, you do not have to follow them, but it is good to be aware of what dress suits every body type.
- For bodies with minimal curves
If you are built athletically with even weight distribution across your body and are not curvy, certain styles might suit you. Pretty much all dress types will look good on you, but you can decide which part of your body you want to accentuate. You can wear knee-length or mini dresses if you’re going to highlight your legs. If you want your waistline to be prominent, you can even wear a fit and flare dress. If you have an apple-shaped body where your shoulders are broader than your waist, and your waistline is not defined, some dress styles will be perfect. A-line dresses will look wonderful on you, and if you like them, strapless dresses are a great choice. You can choose striped patterns and darker shades, if you want to look tall and slim.
- Dress styles for curvier body types
If you want to highlight your curves, you can choose certain dresses that will accentuate them. Wrap and bodycon dresses are highly recommended for hourglass figures, and you can select minimal accessories if you do not want the attention away from the dress. You can also avoid heavy design in the bust area, which makes it look very heavy. If you are trying to avoid attention to your curves, you can wear dresses with long stripes or ones that have a loose fit.
- Dress style for wider hips
Some women have a triangle-shaped body where they have fuller hips, which are wider than your bust area. Your shoulders are also narrower than your hips, and several dress styles suit your body type. A-line dresses or any pattern with a hemline a little below the knee can make your thighs and waist look slimmer. If you have a narrow shoulder, you can choose dresses based on the neckline. Low necklines and open backs will look good on you if you want to wear dresses with these styles. If you have wide hips and do not like to highlight them, you can shift your focus to the upper body. Wear a V-neck or a u-neck dress to accentuate your torso.
