Let’s begin! What part of the body would you like to focus on?

Adding curves

You are thin, with a straight waist and narrow shoulders and hips. This body type will benefit from adding definition to the waistline. Look for dresses with details at the bust and hips. Puff or cap sleeves, full skirts, ruching at the hips, and belts at waist give the appearance of a curvier figure.

Flattering a full bust

Your bust size is fuller than your hips and rear. Look for wrap styles, classic V-necks and halters that will draw eyes downward and create a slimming effect. Keep top embellishments to a minimum. To help balance out your bottom half, choose full skirts and A-line styles.

Minimizing hips

You have a thin waist, narrow ribs and shoulders, and full, womanly hips. The waistline should be accentuated. Look for dresses with wide collars and details around the bust to balance your lower body. A-line and flared skirts, empire and fitted waists, and belts worn at waistline are best for you.

Accentuating curves

You have broad shoulders and/or a voluptuous chest, a smaller waist and gorgeous full hips. Look for dresses that accentuate your curves and have a fitted waist. Fitted clothing, strait skirts and belted waists are best for you.

Minimizing waist/torso

You have thinner legs and arms, accompanied by fullness through the ribs and stomach. Look for dresses that accentuates your legs and arms. Loose-fitting waists, empire waists, short sleeves, full skirts, and knee-length skirts are best for you.

Lengthening a petite figure

You are smaller than the average woman. Look for clothing that lengthens your silhouette. Dresses with a hemline just above the knee are elongating. Vertical stripes, solid colors, fitted clothing and empire waists are best for you.

Flattering a tall figure

You are taller than the average woman. Look for dresses with belts or ties at the waist to break up the silhouette. Your height is complimented with patterns and feminine details such as ruffles and sashes.
