An hourglass figure is one where your top and bottom halves are perfectly balanced, with a very defined waist. This body type is often seen as a body shape which can wear anything, it’s still best to pick a dress that accentuates your waist, as this will show off your best asset. Two-piece gowns will enhance an hourglass figure. As your chest and hips are already balanced it’s best not to add weight to either half, thus you should avoid empire-line silhouettes and ball gowns.

If you are a triangle shape, you are wider on the top of your body, with hips narrower than your shoulders. A V-neck dress works well to cover up wider shoulders. Puffed sleeves will draw attention to your shoulders, as will halter and off-the-shoulder necklines. If you want to avoid drawing attention to an amble bosom, steer clear of embroidery and lapels around the neckline.

More voluptuous than most, apple shapes have full breasts, a bit of a tummy and a rounder bum and hips. An empire-line dress will de-emphasise your waist, giving you a leaner look. But a line and basque dresses draw too much attention to your middle, and a sheath will make you look heavier, thus avoid spaghetti straps which can cut into your shoulders.

Pear shaped body type, just like the fruit, you’re smaller on top than the bottom, with hips wider than your shoulders. Princess style dresses disguise fuller hips and put the focus on your better half, balancing your torso and bust. Avoid tiered, trumpet and mermaid style dresses which draw attention to your bottom. Sheaths are also unflattering.
