Many women aspire to have the best dresses for their bodies. If you are among these women, then the question may arise that what should be the criteria for selecting the best dress for your body type? You will be happy to know that there is no strict rule regarding this issue. But generally, there are three types of body shapes and hence the kind of dress you wear can be chosen accordingly.
There are many different styles available in the market for the petite women. Some of the styles are long gowns that cover up the lower part of your body, or they can be halter neck or cap sleeve shirts. This does not mean that you cannot find any such style that fits your body type. On the contrary, you just need to make sure that the styles that suit your body type will complement your facial structure and general personality. Most of these styles are available in wide variety of sizes to choose from. Hence, you can get the best dresses for your body type.
There are two types of dresses that you should look for when it comes to finding the best dresses for your body type. Firstly, you can opt for a v-neckline that will help create cleavage or bring out your shoulders. However, if you don’t have a very large bust and wish to disguise it, then you can opt for a scoop-neckline or any other kind of v-neckline.
The second way of finding the best dresses for your body types is by opting for those that suit the apple or rectangle shape. These dresses will help create a balance on the upper and lower half of your body, while creating an ideal V-neckline. Usually, the apple shape is defined as the broadest point on your body at your widest point.
If you have neither the apple nor the rectangle shape, there is still hope for you. You can go for the empire waist dress. Empire waist dresses are best for those with narrow hips and a smaller bust. An empire waist is usually described as the widest part of your torso with a tapered look from the shoulders down to your ankles. This shape is also the widest in general. One of the best dresses for this type of body type would be a V-neckline with an empire line running down one side of your torso.
To complete the look, wear accessories such as straps that will accentuate your hip and waistlines. Some of the best dresses for women with these types of body types include body wraps and off shoulder shrugs. Boho wraps are ideal for those who prefer to wear ethnic clothing as these dresses are made from prints of Indian, Chinese, Japanese and African tribal art. Shrugs are ideal for those who like to wear off shoulder shirts with plunging necklines, as these dresses will help create a triangle shaped look with your bust and hips. To complete your look, choose accessories such as jewelries, footwear, earrings, hats, sunglasses and purses.
