Pear-shaped bodies should cover the bottom putting more emphasis on the top. Focus on hiding the waist and/or wear any type of strapless dress. V-necks will make people look where you don’t want them too, your waistline.

The Full-Figured women should stay away from the clingy or spaghetti strap dress. A high waist dress or low neckline, will complement your curves, not the extra inches.

Ladies with the boyish body should wear fabric embellished on your waistline to give you more of a feminine shape. Sheaths and any type of style that goes below the waist, will make you appear boyish.

The tiny petite women wearing column or line fabrics will make you seem taller. Avoid the extra fabric as it will make you look awkwardly big.

Tall women can wear any style dress. However, avoid the high necklines, having your hair up or wearing hair accessories, as they draw everyone’s eyes to your head, making you seem really tall.

Bony women, do not fret, there’s a dress perfect for you too. Dresses that focus on necklines or are sleeveless will accent you and not the bones. Stay away from fabric that hangs over the shoulder, halter styles or already made breast cups.
