All about dresses: Finding your perfect fit.

Posted on June 24 2019

Ok ladies, we know dress shopping is no easy task, and it only makes it harder if you're not really sure what looks good on you (something we all struggle with).
The easiest way to get over this obstacle is figuring out your body shape and know the silhouettes that flatter it the most.
We have come up with this guide to make dress shopping for party season just a little bit easier.
We know not all body shapes fit these five "basic" shapes, but try and see what shape you are closest to. You're all beautiful!

 

The Hourglass 

This shape tends to have the silhouette of a... hourglass (duh). It means that your chest and hips are approximately the same width, while your waist is smaller.

We say: "If you got it, flaunt it!!"

When you hour glass beauties are picking out your dress it should optimally follow the outline of your curves to extenuate and hug your curves. When doing so, it shoes off that small waist of yours.

 - The Pear

With the pear shaped bodies, your top half of your body tends to be smaller than your lower half. 

.

Belted dresses are definitely your best friend. Also, keep in mind that wrap dresses are remarkably versatile, making them a highly favorable choice as well.
