Straight Shape: a-Line

clothing, flower, hairstyle, costume, floristry, If you have a mostly straight body shape, then A-Line dresses are beyond perfect for you. The A-Line creates a waist on any body type, so if you’re self-conscious about your body type, the A-line shape creates a cinched waist with a fuller skirt to create the illusion of an hourglass figure.


Pear-Shaped: Empire Waist

clothing, color, pink, yellow, lilac, If you’re pear-shaped, shopping for the perfect dress can be tough. If you’re trying to play down your hips or simply make your bust look a little bit bigger than it is, an empire waist is perfect for you. It plays up your bust while playing down your waist, which is what most pear-shaped girls want in a dress!


Hourglass: Wrap Dress

clothing, color, snapshot, plaid, polka dot, Congratulations on having one of the most sought after body shapes! To accentuate your curves, wear a wrap dress. The wrap feature will pull in the fabric around your waist, showing off your curves, and the v-neck will accentuate your bust.


Apple: Empire Waist

clothing, color, woman, turquoise, aqua, Most women with apple-shaped bodies hate shopping for dresses but that shouldn’t be the case. Empire waist dresses are personally one of my favorite dress styles, and they look amazing on women with apple-shaped bodies. They flow beautifully over your body while also hiding any areas you may be self-conscious about. Plus, they show off your bust so beautifully that how could you not love them?


Full-Bust: Semi-Fitted

clothing, active undergarment, thigh, abdomen, chest, Dressing for a full bust can be quite the task, especially when it comes to dresses, because most dresses are made to show off your bust. Decide whether you want to show off your assets or cover them up a little bit with the neckline, and from there look for a dress that’s semi-fitted. The way that the dress is fitted shows off other areas of your body that are usually overshadowed by your bust!


Short: Simple Silhouette

clothing, orange, dress, model, toy, If you’re short, a simple silhouette is perfect. It’s super easy to accessorize. Most short women I know love heels. Wearing a simple silhouette instantly lets you wear a gorgeous pair of show-stopping heels or something else that’s sure to leave everyone focused on how great you look and not your height, which is great if you often feel self-conscious over your height.


Petite: Shift Dress

clothing, footwear, dress, beauty, fashion, You are one of the few women who can wear a retro, mod, shift dress. This dress was made for you. Most women can’t wear it because it doesn’t work well with curvier body types, so be proud that you can and wear it with confidence!

Which of these styles should you wear? Did you love this style before or have you never tried it? Let me know how you’ll incorporate this into your regular wardrobe in the comments!

I think this article is a little restricting. Any women can wear any dress shape, as long as it fits them well. Restrict clothing if the individual item doesn't look so great, but don't be afraid of different cuts and styles because of your body.

Ugh but wrap dresses are so yuck

Since when is pregnant considered an apple shaped body?

The one that shows in the articles title.

What about athletic bodies!?!

I am Apple shape and find the princess line most flattering. The vertical seams from top to hem into 3 panels elongate the body ,especially if the dress is below the knee.

What about if you're short, have an hour-glass figure and have big boobs? 😂😂

I'm an hourglass but I'm not at big as the girl in the picture. Honestly just wear whatever you want, if you like it, go for it.

I am closer to straight, but body con still look good, too! Never tried a line, though, will definitely opt for this style when dress shopping! Thank you!

I'm a straight figured girl and A-lines are PERFECT this article it very good
