The Best Little Black Dress for Your Body Type ...

By Holly

Every woman looks different in different types of clothing. Of course, little black dresses work for everyone. You just have to find the right fit. Real Simple can help you!

1 Tall and Slim

Tall and Slim If you have long legs, you want your hemlines to hit the right spots. If you wear something too short, then you'll look more provocative than you wanted to. You should also try to wear something that fits your body shape, but isn't too tight.

2 Petite

Petite You don't want to overpower your frame with too many embellishments. Stick to something sleek and simple without too many distractions.

3 Full Hips and Thighs

Full Hips and Thighs Your big hips aren't anything to worry about. However, you should "opt for a hemline that hits your leg at its slenderest point, either just beneath the knee or just below the swell of your calf."

4 Curvy

Curvy You should definitely try on a wrap dress! It'll highlight the slimmest part of your waist, because it ties close to your bust.

5 No Hourglass

No Hourglass If you don't have the hourglass shape everyone always talks about, you should wear dresses with a sleek A-line. That way, it'll highlight your bust instead of your tiny hips.
