Party Dresses For Your Body Shape

Are you struggling to find a Wow factor dress for the Christmas and New Year party season? Then struggle no more. Very have hundreds of styles of gorgeous party dresses online right now and there are reams of dresses to suit all body shapes and sizes. Whether you are Apple, Pear, Hourglass, Straight Up And Down or Top Heavy there is definitely a dress for you.

Apple

Try this Lipsy 2 in 1 Animal Print Dress or this Coleen Metallic Tweed Dress. Look for dresses that take the attention away from your tummy. The A-line is a great dress silhouette for you and is so 1960’s on-trend right now. An empire line is also good as the fabric drops from below your bust and skims over your tummy. Look for eye catching details on the shoulders, neckline or hems of dresses. Avoid dresses with embellished waistbands. Look for short-ish dresses to show off your fabulous legs.

Pear

Try this Coleen Embellished Puffball Dress or this Drama Queen Backless Embellished Neck Dress.  You want dresses that make your shoulders appear broader so that means volume, pattern, embellishments all in the top half of the dress. This also means avoiding volume, pattern and embellishments in the lower half of your dress. Look for shoulder pads, puffed sleeves and skirts that skim rather than cling to your hips.

Hourglass

Try this Lipsy One Shoulder Dress or this Savoir Embellished Dress.  Follow your body line with dresses that accentuate your bust, waist and hips. Avoid A-line and Empire line and all styles that create volume around the waist. Your dresses want to be shaped to your curves or belted in.

Straight up and down/boyish

Try this Oasis Scarf One Shoulder Dress or this South Mesh Insert Prom Dress.  You are looking for dresses that create curves.  Empire line and shift dresses are good. Sleeves that end at the elbow are ideal as they will draw attention to your waist making it look narrower. Go for low or wide necklines, an added bonus would be some embellishment or detailing on the neckline. Soft folds of fabric are good as they soften your shape.

Top heavy


Try this Lipsy Printed Monochrome Dress or this So Fabulous Ellen Jersey Party Dress. You want dresses that sculpt and flatter your full bust so wrap dresses are perfect, as are low v-necks with wide straps and dresses that have gathering or a wasitband under the bust. Balance out with all the details and embellishment on your lower half. Avoid high necks and loose dresses.

With my tips and recommendations in mind go shopping girlfriend, choose wisely and soon you will be Cinderella and on your way to the ball. Just make sure you avoid those frogs! x
