Flatter Your Body – How to Find Your Perfect Dress

Reposted from StyleFlattery @ Northshore Mall

Hello dress-lovers,

I can’t think of a better topic to write about than picking the perfect dress for your body type. I wear a dress almost every day at this time of year, and I know I can’t be the only woman who does this! Here is a guide for choosing the most flattering style for you:

TALL

A flowy silhouette is especially gorgeous on a statuesque woman. Also, peplums work very well on leggy-ladies!

PEAR

A styling secret for the pear shape is to wear a dress with a padded bra. This helps balance out bigger hips and thighs. Also, picking a dress with embellishments on the bodice, such as ruffles and florals, will help keep attention on a small torso.

BOXY

For the woman who does not have a lot of curves, rouching that gathers at the hip creates a more voluptuous look. Also, a halter top, natural-waist-dress with a pattern will create the illusion of curves.

BUSTY

Support is key when it comes to the well-endowed ladies. Think thick straps and plenty of coverage (with less risk of spilling over).

Yours in style & flattery,
