Being able to identify your body shape is the first step to finding the perfect dress. Style is not all about sporting the trendiest outfits; it’s about highlighting the best features on your body. Flatting your body shape can elevate the look of any wardrobe. 

The four body types we will predominantly be addressing are: Hourglass, Pear (or triangle), Athletic and Round

Hourglass: Your body is curvy with proportionate hips and bust. Individuals with this body type have an upper body that is considered “balanced” with their leg length. Hourglass figures also have well-defined waists, and this asset should be accentuated! 

Best Dresses for You: Look for dresses that have: V-necklines, Open necklines, Cinched-in waistlines and Form-fitting tops. Wrap dresses with belted waists are also a great option for hourglass figures!

Pear: If you have a triangle shape type you typically have a thinner upper body and larger hips and thighs. To appear more balanced and proportionate, triangle body types should opt for dresses that add more volume to their upper half.

Best Dresses for You: Any dress with a Strapless top, A fitted open neck, A V-neckline or A-line or full skirt (these will help hide a wider hip)

In short, you will look fab in flare and fit dresses as they are roomier from the waist down and add volume to your small upper body and thin waist!

Athletic: If you have an athletic body, your silhouette is slightly narrower in the hips than in the shoulders. Athletic body types also tend to have waists that are not well-defined and broader shoulders. The key with this body type is to balance your upper body with your narrower lower body. In other words, you want to try and give your figure more of an hourglass effect.  

Best Dresses for You: Any dress that will balance the upper body and fill your slight hips, such as dresses with, Embellishment, Ruffles or any other volume-increasing details.

A-lines and lower waistlines are very flattering. In general, dresses that slightly flare out are ideal for you as they help balance out broad shoulders! If you want to give your body a more feminine shape, pick out a dress with a cinched midsection.

Apple or Round Shape: Women with apple body types carry their weight in their midsection and usually have a shorter, undefined waist, and slim legs. Apple body types also tend to have flatter bottoms. 

Best Dresses for You: Any dress that draws attention to your upper body is a good option. Belted styles, drop-waist dresses, swing dresses, dresses with an embellished top A-line dresses, wrap dresses, and dresses with full skirts are also great options, as they help conceal the midsection. A major asset of apple body types is their legs, so feel free to flaunt them in shorter dresses!
