Dresses To Flatter Every Body Type

Aug 18, 2007
The mindset of most people would be that you are body beautiful if you have a slim figure. Each of us is beautiful in our own way and every body type can be flattered with the right dress to best complement that particular body figure. Dressing up is all about enhancing strong body features while hiding certain flaws.

Heavy bottomed women can balance their figures by selecting dresses that glide over their body's lower half.

If your problem is having flabby arms you don't always have to be wearing sleeves to cover them up. You can always add some sexy element with sleeves that have slits or splits.

Petite women can have a leaner and longer line, by wearing empire waist cut clothes to give the illusion of added height.

Dark colored dresses are most ideal for plus size women to shed off pounds on their look. Large prints on a fabric with a dark background would still be flattering as well.

For women who find their legs unattractive to show off it doesn't mean that they'll forever be hiding them under a pair of pants. You can always wear a dress or a skirt that goes mid-calf or longer ones for extra coverage. Vibrant colors will give it a sensual appeal.

Wide shoulders shouldn't bother if you look for dresses that have oversized details. An A-line cut or one with a wide hem can give balance. Avoid wearing tops that have puffy sleeves. Wearing a slim bottom with a voluminous top can also emphasize your broad shoulders.

You can hide a thick waist by either raising the waistline or lowering it somewhere around the hip area.

Many would women would kill to have a full bust but there really are certain women who naturally have large breasts that are too big for their figure. They want to conceal or make it appear smaller than it seems to avoid drawing too much attention from men on that body area. A plunging neckline or a V-neckline is most flattering for women with a full bust to give balance. To avoid emphasizing the bust area, opt for fabrics that skim and avoid wearing tight hugging or clingy tops. Avoid clothes like embellished bodices or tops that have elaborate ruffles, beadwork, etc. on the bust area that will draw attention towards it and will emphasize it more.

Women with small busts can actually fit with ease into most types of clothes but if you want to add some volume to your bust area, wear tops with embellishments, ruffles, etc.

For thin women who don't have curves give your body figures a feminine touch with bright colored clothes as well as those with bold prints. Avoid wearing tight fitting clothes that'll show off your straight body, collar bones or hip bones.
