Women come in all shapes and sizes. The beauty of the female form is its diversity and if women all looked the same, fashion would be intensely dull. Different cuts and shapes in fashion naturally stem from the fact that people themselves come in different cuts and shapes. But, with all of this choice, finding a dress that suits your body shape can sometimes be a daunting task. However, with these four principles to steer you in the right direction, finding the perfect fit has never been simpler.

1. Know Your Shape

Hubert de Givenchy once said, β€œThe dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress”. However, in order to find a dress that follows your body, you must first know your body. This is perhaps the most important of the four principles. The more you know about your body shape the quicker you’ll be able to find things that suit you. Here’s a quick guide to the major body types:

Apple: Big boobs, tends to carry weight around the middle.

Hourglass: Big boobs, small waist, large hips.

Pear: Bottom-heavy

Lollipop: Top-heavy

Boyish: Straight up and down, smaller breasts.

Whether or not you are tall or petite should also be taken into account.
