Body Type & Dress PicksRectangle Figure: Your shoulders and hips are similar in size
Look For: A dress that defines the waist in order to add curves to the silhouette of your body
Great Dress Picks: Column, Princess, A-Line, Mermaid
Look For: A dress skirt that gradually flares out from the waist to the floor. The flare of the dress will highlight the narrowness of the midsection and detract attention away from the hips and thighs.
Great Dress Picks: A-Line, Ballgown, Empire, Trumpet
Look For: A dress that elongates the torso. If you love the look of strapless gowns, it is best to choose one that has the scooped neckline, rather than a style that goes straight across. A straight across style may make your bust appear larger.
Great Dress Picks: Empire, Ballgown, Princess
Look For: A strapped or strapless dress with a full-coverage scooped neckline and defined waistband. Dresses with these details will draw attention to your face, while also displaying your cinched waistline and toned shoulders.
Great Dress Picks: Ball gown, Empire, A-Line
Look For: Fitted gowns that will show off your curvy figure - maximizes attention to your smaller waist
Great Dress Picks: Ballgown, Mermaid, Trumpet, Bateau
Other Considerations:Small Bust:
Look for dresses with bateau or squared necklines. Accent what you do have with gowns that are pleated with ruffled detail across the bust, or have intricate detailing with beads or embroidery.
Look for a dress with a simple bodice. Stay away from beads, embroidery, lace, and sequins. Great necklines to consider are square, strapless, scoop, sweetheart, v-shaped, and off-the-shoulder.
NOTE- These are just a few of the dress styles and neckline silhouettes to give you an idea of what is out there and what may flatter your body type best. Use these recommendations as a guide, but always try on styles that YOU like and pick what makes you feel the most beautiful!
