The Best Styles of Dress for Each Body Type

Everyone knows that the top-quality designer clothing found at Scout & Molly’s Boutique is some of the very best you can find around the Sugar Land area. However, finding the specific items that complement your body requires a little bit of styling know-how. Below are a few hints that our experienced personal stylists have prepared to help even the best dressers up their dress game this season.

Finding the perfect fit often means disregarding the sizing labels entirely. Did you know that most clothing brands use no standard sizing systems? Furthermore, the fine brands carried by Scout & Molly’s Boutique often utilize European sizing conventions, which many American shoppers are unfamiliar with. Shopping according to a number is guesswork. Don’t be afraid to try something that’s a little different than what you usually reach for.

Pay attention to the way a garment fits on all the most common problem areas. Women most often look at the bust and waist to determine whether or not a shirt fits correctly, but this ignores the role that shoulders play in proper line and balance. How wide, narrow, full, or shallow your shoulders are will dramatically affect the way shirts and dresses fit on your body. In fact, your entire bust line can look quite different depending on how clothing fits across your shoulders. If you’re struggling with bustline fit, the problem may actually have to do with finding the proper sized dress for your shoulders.

Another common problem area is the rump. Your skirt hemline can become twisted if it has to travel further down the back than it does the front. This can make even the most elegant piece of clothing look off-balance and sloppy. You can correct this by selecting a different style of skirt. For instance, wrap skirts often give you the freedom to drape the garment in a manner that perfectly fits your body type. Our stylists can help you identify which skirts honestly hang in a flattering manner and which do not.

If you’re looking for something special, or need help identifying the perfect dress or pair of jeans for your body type, speak with one of our personal stylists. The fashion experts at Scout & Molly’s love helping our valued customers find exactly what they’re looking for.
