Little Black Dress for Different Body Shapes

There’s no one-size-fits all with the Little Black Dress. You need to customize the dress to show off areas you like and to detract attention from the areas want to downplay. Here are some suggestions for what works on six different body shapes:

Your goal is to elongate your frame. A sheath dress with a hem that hits just above the knee is a perfect cut for making your body appear extra long and lean while also giving your legs some of the limelight.

Pear shape
To balance your larger bottom half, you want to go with a halter neck or T-back style to show off your shoulders and upper body.

Apple shape
Your middle is your problem area. A dress with a defined waist will create the illusion of a smaller tummy. Also, details like romantic flutter sleeves are smart as they put the focus on your to upper torso.

Boyish shape
The idea is to give your straight-up-and-down form the suggestion of curves. A peplum dress or a design with a belted detail and feminine capped sleeves will give the appearance of a shapely physique.

Hourglass shape
Think Beyoncé on this one. A bodycon dress will showcase your natural womanly figure and accentuate your waistline.

Fitted, but not too tight is the key. A faux wrap dress with a low v-neck is most flattering on the torso. Make sure the skirt isn’t too loose or too tight. You want it to just skim over your legs to create a smooth shape.
