There are several distinct kinds of ladies’ fitted dresses, each distinctly different from the next in regard to how they are made to look. Fitted dresses are often worn to show off a lady’s figure, and for that reason they can be quite elegant. However, there are various different styles of these dresses, from the fitted long gown to the fitted sweater dress.
While they all have one inherent theme, fitted dresses also have several common elements: They’re all designed to showcase a lady’s physique in the most flattering light. There are a few key principles to keep in mind when trying to pick flattering dresses for yourself. The following tips will help you find your ideal flattering dresses and figure out your own unique body type.
When looking at the various types of fitted dresses that you see on the racks, make sure to pay close attention to your figure type. For example, if you have a pear shaped body type, you’ll probably want to opt for fitted dress that are fitted in all the right places. Choose a top that is at least an inch above your natural waistline but not too long; a sweater dress or halter top will do just fine. Make sure that fitted dresses aren’t too baggy around the middle; otherwise, you’ll end up looking like you’ve got too much tummy in the middle. A good rule of thumb is that if the fitted dress is longer than it is away from your waist, then you’re probably looking at a sweater dress or a tank top. Conversely, if the dress is shorter than it is away from your waist, then you’re probably looking at either a halter top or a fitted cardigan sweater dress.
Now, if you have athletic body types (athletic or sedentary), then it’s best to avoid the majority of the clothing options available. As such, it’s best to stick with tailored suits and dress shirts instead. These garments are fitted in all the right areas (the shoulders, back, hips, and waist) and therefore flattering to most athletic body types. However, if you are looking for a good-fitting sporty sweater dress or a fitted cardigan, then you can definitely find them!
Sports casual is a term used to describe items that are designed to be worn outside of the work environment – for example, a sporty t-shirt and jeans. There are also some items of clothing that are best for athletic body types but that may not be suitable for more casual occasions: for example, a fitted jacket and blazer are best suited for outdoor work environments but not appropriate for a night out. If you are going to wear this type of apparel, it’s important to pay close attention to fit and proportions. For example, you wouldn’t wear a fitted jacket and blazer over a fitted pair of jeans because the jacket will end up pulling down your jeans. Likewise, keep an eye on proportions – if you have an athletic body but the bottom half is larger than you’d like (compared to the top half where you’d prefer things to be) then it’s probably worthwhile opting for a bigger size.
Dress shirts and t-shirts are good examples of fitted dresses because they suit all types of figure types. They are also good for apple body types because they elongate the upper body. For example, an apple body can wear almost any type of dress shirt and t-shirt. An apple shape is simply a shape where the torso is longer than it is wider. Thus, fitted dresses for the apple body are best suited for these people as they will look good on them.
Pear-shaped women tend to benefit from skirts and dresses that end above the knees. These types of outfits to suit them well because they accentuate their long lines and help them look taller. These are two body types who also benefit from empire waist dresses that have the right length and fit. To make these dresses work for them better, try to get one that goes past the knee at the bottom and flares out at the top. This makes the skirt length elongated and the dress top stays put and looks great.
No matter what type of body type you are, there are plenty of ways in which you can wear a fitted dress to look your best. If you’re not sure what kind of outfit would work for you, go for a dress with simple lines or one that features a unique design. For those with large, hourglass breasts, consider going for halter dresses or scoop necks. The options are plenty and you’ll find that it won’t take much work to find flattering dresses for yourself.
