How to choose evening gown for athletic figure

Working out everyday becomes more and more popular for modern women. And it’s quite easy for women who work out often to gain muscle. Muscular body is quite healthy. However, women with too much muscle tend to look less feminine. In fact, you can still look very sexy as long as you choose the right clothes. The following are some idea on how to choose evening gown for athletic body type.

Draped dresses that nip in at the waist is a great choice since draping and ruching can add just a bit of volume, while a cinched mid section gives the illusion of a supremely feminine hourglass shape. Add a simple belt if your dress does not have such designs. Athletic body types are well-defined and toned. Even if your shape is muscular or thicker, you can create the illusion of curves wherever you'd like. For example, you may choose a dress in a slight tulip shape to play up your hips and toned thighs. Plain dresses won't increase your feminine appeal as will something in delicate silk crepe. Don't forget that feminine doesn't always mean flowers. Look for feminine prints like polka dots, stripes, or other understated geometric shapes.



It's possible to look pounds thinner with the right shoes. Wear shoes that are long and lean, not chunky. A chunky wedge will accentuate your muscular build if you have athletic legs. So avoid clunky shoe. If you want to hide your strong upper arms, opt for dresses with sleeves. Choose a tulip skirt or a silhouette that adds some volume to your lower body if you wish to appear curvier. Flatter your calves with a traditional pump and a slightly thicker heel. If you'd like to highlight tiny ankles, wear t-strap or ankle strap heels with a thin heel.




By choosing styles and silhouettes that create feminine curves and highlight toned limbs, athletic women can feel just as confident in a slinky dress as they do in their gym shorts. Find your dream dresses at
