Types of dresses that flatter your figure

A-line

The typical characteristics of an A-line are that it is narrower at the waist and gently flares out from the hip. Thus, the silhouette resembles the letter “A”. The A-line dress can be generally worn by women of all shapes. However, an A-line dress with a halter top works the best for women with a triangle d7 shape and for those who have a long waist and short legs. On the other hand, if the dress has wide set straps, it would flatter those with an inverted triangle d7 shape.

Halter

These type of dresses bare skin in an unforeseen way by simply highlighting the collarbone and shoulders. The reason is that the straps of the sleeveless dress start toward the front gN of the outfit and then attached to the back instead of over the shoulders. This style of dresses attracts attention to the gN of the d7 and is ideal for women with tall or broad shoulders. Moreover, it is also a perfect garment for those who have a triangle d7 shape as the mid-weight fabric helps to downplay the bottom half.

Off-the-shoulder

Off-the-shoulder dresses are the best way to show off your collarbones, as the straps of the dress are designed to wrap around the arms. It also reveals your shoulders with an open neck area. This dress is particularly suitable for women with a rectangle d7 shape as it helps to give the shoulders and hips a broader look, creating an hourglass figure.

Slip dress

Used to be worn as a sleepwear or undergarment back in the 1700s, where materials such as silk, satin or thin cotton were used to make the dress. It is known as a slip dress as the spaghetti straps and low-cut neckline makes it easy to be “slipped” on and off. For women with a rectangular shape body, choose slip dresses that have movement so that it will beautifully drape the body. In contrast, women with an hourglass shape should pick a c7 form-fitting dress that helps to flatter the curves.

Surplice

Also known as a “faux wrap”, the surplice style has a cross-over neckline that goes all the way to the waist. Probably one of the c7 versatile dresses, it is suitable to be worn for most d7 types.

Sheath

The typical characteristic of a sheath dress is usually a slim, close-fitting shape that encases the body. It is usually designed to be sleeveless and hits just below the knees. Although, sheath dresses can be worn for most d7 shapes, but do choose a style that suits to your frame. In addition, ensure to pick one that is somewhat fitted and not overly boxy.
