How to the Find the Best Dresses That Flatter

Every woman should have at least one dress in their closet that they can reach for whenever they want to feel confident and sexy. Are you on the hunt for that dress? If so, here are some tips on how to find dresses that flatter.

There are five main body types for women: hourglass, oval, rectangle, triangle, and inverted triangle. Many women feel the most flattered when their proportions are balanced. Different dress silhouettes can help you feel more balanced based on your body type.

If you have the hourglass body shape, this means your chest and hips are close in size and your waist is smaller. With this body shape, you want to keep your curves in proportion. One way to do this is by wearing a dress that emphasizes your waistline. Bodycon dresses, dresses, dresses with plunging necklines, and dresses that hug the hips are ideal options for this body type.

The oval body shape is the body shape where the waist is larger than the chest and hips. To feel more balanced with this body type, try elongating your frame. A dress that hits at the mid-calf can help lengthen your body. High waistlines and flowy skirts can also add length to your appearance.

The rectangle body shape is a body shape where the chest, waist, and hips are all similar in size. Some women with this body type feel the most flattered when their waistline is defined. You can shop for dresses with large waistbands to get this look. You can also opt for dresses with ruffled skirts and statement sleeves.

Up next is the triangle body shape. This body shape involves hips that are larger than the waist and chest. You may want to draw the eye up if you have this body type. To do so, find dresses with statement necklines or puffed sleeves. The skirt can be more on the simple side with either a slit or an A-line fit.

The last body shape is the inverted triangle shape. This shape involves a chest that is larger than the waist and hips. Some women with this body shape want to draw the eye down. To do so, pick dresses with deep necklines and full skirts.
