Finding dresses for every shape


Sometimes it can be difficult to find a dress that looks great with your body type. But whether you’re full-figured, athletic, curvy, petite or busty, there is a dress out there for you. So here is a list of types of dresses that will fit your body just right.


If you’re curvy then you’ll want to look at dresses that cinch at the waist and go right below your knees. Dresses that are made up of two colours work perfectly in accentuating your curves. Look for a dress with a fitted waist and flared skirt as it will hug your curves in all the right places. Make sure to stay away from anything that is too loose or fitted with high necklines.


For a petite body type look for dresses with simple silhouettes. So go for a fitted sheath, wrap, Empire style or shirtdress that will accentuate your small figure without overwhelming it. Dresses with floral designs, mixed textures, bright colours, and stripes can also help to elongate your frame. However, make sure to avoid dresses with full skirts and too much embellishment.


If you’re quite busty then shop for dresses that have a modest v-necks, which show just enough skin, as well as narrow waists and flared hemlines. Shirtdresses, wraps, and shifts are perfect for this body type. However, you should steer clear from formless A-lines, gathered sleeves, off-the-shoulder looks and dresses with wide belts.


For an athletic body type, dresses with architectural and minimalistic structures will look amazing on your body. Look for A-line dresses, shirtdresses and belted styles that help to add some curves. But you should probably stay away from voluminous styles as well as tank dresses.


If you’re full-figured then you should look for dresses that are high-waisted, have a full skirt and a pattern. But don’t go for big prints, rather look for dresses with a monochromatic pattern. When shopping you should make sure that the dresses you try on aren’t too tight or too loose, take your time to find one that fits just right.

These are just some of the dresses that you can wear to accentuate your body type. But at the end of the day, what matters is that you are comfortable with your body. Rather than going out to look for dresses that fall into an ‘acceptable’ size range, wear what makes you feel comfortable and what makes you feel good.
