Dress Styles for Different Body Types

A woman’s body is created unique. They come in different shapes and sizes. One of the biggest problems a woman can experience is finding a dress style that flatters her body. So if you are looking forward to attend at your school’s formal event, be it a prom, homecoming or winter ball, you need to check out our latest styles at Prom Dress Shop that will fit your body snugly and perfectly.

A woman’s body can be classified into four categories:
  • Round (midsection is bulky)
  • Triangle (lower body is larger)
  • Hourglass (curvy and even proportioned)
  • Rectangle (body is evenly straight throughout)

Choosing the best formal dresses for prom can be an easy task if you know your shape and what dress styles works best for your body. So we have gathered some foolproof guide on choosing the dress styles for different body types.

If you have a round shaped body, choose a dress style that features your legs and shoulders to divert the focal point from your midsection. Go for:
  • Empire waist
  • Embellished tops
  • A-line dresses
  • Full skirts
  • Belted styles
  • Wrap dresses

Dress styles to avoid:
  • Fitted hips
  • Horizontal stripes
  • Natural waistlines

If you are a triangle-shaped woman, make sure to add volume to the upper part of your body. Go for dresses that highlights your tiny waistline and downplay your lower body to create a balanced physique.
  • Strapless styles
  • Plunging neckline/V-necklines
  • Natural waistlines
  • Form fitted tops

Dress styles to avoid:
  • Full skirts
  • Fitted skirts
  • Curve hugging gowns
  • Extremely short hemlines.
If you have an hourglass-shaped body, your hips and bust are well-proportionate with each other. Choose a dress that highlights your well-defined waist.
  • Natural waistlines
  • V-neckline or open necklines
  • Form fitted tops
  • Body hugging dresses

Dress styles to avoid:

  • Shapeless dress styles
  • Empire waist
If you have rectangle-shaped body, your frame is thin or slender throughout. Choose dress styles that highlights your lean body.
