♥ HOURGLASS - Shoulders and hips in line, a nipped-in waist
DO: Embrace your curves and accentuate your waist. Bias-cut gowns work well for hourglass figures as they fall over the natural curves of the body. Show off your best asset with a gown that nips in at the waist.
DON’T: Wear a design that gathers at the waist. Instead, choose a skirt that lies flat against the hips and flares out lower down, otherwise it could add bulk to your bottom half and make you look bigger than you really are. Avoid empire lines that will only hide your figure.
Sheath - Show off your figures pros with a streamlined silhouette that is slim from head to toe.
Ball Gown - A structured bodice and full skirt team up for a look that’s Oh so elegantly feminine
Mermaid / Trumpet - A curvy fit and flare silhouette plays up your figure in all the right places.
♥ INVERTED TRIANGLE - Shoulders wider than the hips
DO: Balance your shoulders by adding width to your hips. Try a gathered skirt with a nipped-in waist. Soften the shoulders with pretty chiffon sleeves and opt for gowns with detail on the lower half to draw the eye downwards.
DON’T: Wear spaghetti straps or a halterneck gown, these will only make you look broader. If you want to draw attention away from an ample bust, steer clear of heavy embellishment around the neckline.
The Ball Gown - A full skirt creates symmetry with wider shoulders. While a structured bodice accents a trim waist
Short Gowns - Balance your top half by drawing attention downward to the legs (and a great pair of heels)
Trumpet / Mermaid - A slim bodice and flared skirt provide a flattering counterpoint to strong and shapely shoulders
♥ RECTANGLE - Shoulders and hips in line, an undefined waist
DO: Create the illusion of balanced curves by adding volume to the hips and shoulders and choose an A-line skirt with a gathered waist. Delicate beading in the right places can also create curves.
DON’T: Opt for a column gown if you want to look curvier. Off-the-shoulder styles can also make you look even slimmer if you have a bony collarbone or shoulders.
Empire - A high-waisted bodice hugs in just the right places and the long skirt creates the illusion of height while hiding your hips.
A-Line - Create an hourglass shape with a style that nips in the waist and flows out gracefully to a floor-length skirt.
Sheath - A bias-cut sheath in a soft flowing fabric can create curves where they are needed.
♥ PEAR SHAPED (TRIANGLE) - Shoulders narrower than the hips
DO: Bring the balance back by choosing an A-line skirt with a high nipped-in waist, so you can’t quite tell where your legs begin and your waist ends. If you’d love a slim 1930s silhouette, add gathered sleeves to balance your shoulders.
DON’T: Opt for thin straps or halternecks; these will make you look bottom-heavy. Avoid tiered gowns and trumpet shapes.
A-Line: A fitted bodice with a skirt that gently angles away from the body showcases your figure’s strength.
Empire: This high-waisted style keeps the focus on a smaller upper frame, while a flowing skirt creates a graceful line.
Ball Gown - Choose a gown with a natural waist to flatter a slim upper body and a skirt that flows away from the hips and thighs.
