If you’re pear shaped, look for a dress with a narrow cut at the top and gradually flares out from the waist to the floor, highlighting the narrowness of the midsection and floating away from the hips and thighs – in the shape of an ‘A’. Choosing a spaghetti-strap or V neckline will also showcase a slenderer upper body. Generally, this dress type is suitable for all body types, and it’s super flattering on almost everyone!

#2 If You’re Busty

If you’re busty, look for a dress with a scooped neckline, or also known as trumpet/ mermaid. This shape is defined by a slim, tapered, curve-hugging skirt that follows the line of your hips and thighs, then flaring out below the knee. This dress will open up your face and display your décolletage without revealing too much cleavage.

#3 If You’re Plus-Sized

If you’re plus-sized, look for an empire dress with a skirt that begins just under the bust and flows into the gradual floor-length A line. This type of dress should play up your shape. If it’s too loose, it will add pounds to your look. It would be advisable to choose a gown with a stiffer base and add an embroidered tulle overlay.

#4 If You’re Tall

If you’re tall, look for a simple silhouette that emphasizes your natural shape, so that every aspect of the dress reflects your longer proportions – with the lower waistline and floor-sweeping hem. Try to avoid too many bells and whistles which can come off as cutesy, particularly on a tall person.

#5 If You’re Straight-Lined

If you’re straight-lined, look for a dress that will create curves where you don’t have them. Go for a ball gown that cinches in at your natural waist and descends into a full, flowing floor-length skirt. This type of dress will capitalize on your slenderness and camouflage a lack of hips.

#6 If You’re Petite

If you’re petite, look for a style with a waistline above your natural waist, to make the lower half of the dress appear longer. The fabric detailing should be small and limited to the bodice, to draw the eye upward. Avoid anything with calf-length, which will make your legs look short.
