If you’re in the market for a beautiful formal gown, you may be feeling overwhelmed by the choices. Considering your unique body type will help you to narrow down the selection. Let’s take a look at how to choose a formal dress for your shape.
If you’re larger in the chest area, it’s wise to avoid tent dresses or those with a straight shape. A gown that hangs straight down your body can make you look heavy. Look for a shape that cinches your natural waist. Sleeveless or strapless is good, as long as the top isn’t too tight. Just be sure you find a properly fitted and supportive bra. That is key.
Ladies on the opposite end of the spectrum in terms of bus size will want to consider a low v-neck, as it will enhance what you have and create a look of cleavage. A sweetheart neckline or a dress with lots of embellishments on the top are also good choices.
If you’re short, a mini dress paired with tall heels can really make your legs look sleek, long and lean. When opting for a floor-length dress, choose one that is form fitting and hangs straight. Any added material can overwhelm you.
One-shoulder gowns can help to make shoulders seem less broad and add emphasis to long, sleek arms. Also, tall girls can really rock a floor length dress.
Pear shaped gals should look for a dress that’s a lighter shade on the top and darker on the bottom. This visual trick will balance your shape out. Details around the neckline, a large necklace or sophisticated up do can draw the eye away from your larger bottom half.
