How to choose a flattering cocktail dress according to body type

There are no two identical leaves in the world. Also there are no two exactly the same body shapes. In western society, the female bodies are roughly divided into four types into hourglass, rectangular, inverted triangle and spoon. In fact, body shapes have no relationships to height and weight. The determining factor is the ratio between shoulder, chest, waist and hip. It’s really important to know your body type well if you wish to choose a flattering dress.

Hourglass shaped women usually have plump chest, slender waist and rounded hips, chest circumference and hip circumference size difference is very small, also the waist line is also very obvious. Famous Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe had typical hourglass shaped body. Body-con dresses can show off the advantages of hourglass shape body. What’s more high waist pencil skirt is also a good choice for hourglass shaped body. You’d batter avoid loose and casual tops since they will make you look fatter if you got a hourglass body. Black Five has just launched lots of hot bodycon cocktail gowns.

Usually, rectangular shaped bodies do not have defined waistline. Famous Oscar winner Marion Cotillard has typical rectangular shaped figure. If you pay attention to her red carpet styles, you will find that she always chose dresses with fluffy skirt. Dresses with girly floral prints and ruching designs are also very choices. You should avoid dress with straight lines since they will hide your body curves completely.

If a man has an inverted triangle shaped body, he would feel so happy. However, it’s really a headache if a woman has such body type. Woman with inverted triangle shaped body often has wide shoulder, strong arms, narrow hips and slender legs. You’d better choose dresses that can highlight your slender legs if you want to look feminine. I would strongly recommend you the dresses with rich ornaments at the waist. Fashion queen Anna Dello Russo showed how to dress for inverted triangle shaped body perfectly. Dresses with exaggerated shoulder design are stylish, but they are not flattering for inverted triangle shaped body.

If you got narrow top and wide bottom, then you have the so called spoon shaped body. Spoon shape is also called as pear shape or triangle shape. Women who have such body shape should opt for dresses that can widen the shoulders and hide the fat on the bottom. Off the shoulder A line dresses are flattering for spoon shaped body.
