Dress Ideas for Your Body Type

While you may be drawn to dresses that are a certain color or made of your favorite fabric, there is more to consider when choosing a formal dress rental. If you can find a dress that flatters your body type, it’ll help to boost your confidence so you look and feel your best. Continue reading for a few tips to help you find the best dress for your body type.

Neckline
First, you’ll want to make sure your dress features the ideal neckline. Crew neck is a classic, casual style, and is most flattering to women with small to medium busts. Boat neck is another option that is best for those with a small to medium bust. Halter necklines are great for women with medium to full busts, as well as those with wide shoulders. Scoop neck and v neck dresses are great for all body types, and give you the opportunity to pick out fun accessories to complement your outfit.

Length
While the nature of the event you’ll be attending should be a consideration when it comes to the length of your dress, you should also keep your body type in mind when choosing a dress rental. Short or mini dresses, which hit the mid-thigh, are great for women with petite bodies, as well as those with shorter legs. Midi dresses, which have hemlines that rest near the knee, are great for all body types. Maxi dresses, which may end near the ankle or skim the floor, look best on taller women—choosing a maxi dress with a slit, however, can be flattering for all body types.

Cut
Finally, it’s essential to carefully consider the cut of a dress. Sheath dresses are form-fitting and fall below the knee—they are great for women with hourglass figures. Skater dresses have a tight bodice and a circular skirt, and are particularly flattering for women with narrow hips and legs. Shift dresses feature a straight cut without a defined waistline, and tend to be comfortable and flattering for all body types. A-line dresses flare out towards the bottom, forming the shape of an A—these are a great choice for all body types since they flatter the bust and waist. Finally, wrap dresses wrap around the body and tie at the waist, making them most flattering for hourglass and pear-shaped body types.

When you need to find the perfect dress for an upcoming event, renting a high fashion dress is a great option. You’ll be able to choose from a wide selection of formal gowns, making it easy to find one that flatters your body type.

Picking Shoes for a Full Length Dress

Just because your dress skims the floor doesn’t mean that the shoes you wear won’t matter. Even with full length dresses, it’s important to choose a pair of shoes that complements your dress and completes your outfit.

Since your dress will be resting against your shoes, avoid shoes with rhinestones, sequins, and other items that may catch the fabric of your evening dress. Wearing a full length dress offers you a great chance to pick a pair of shoes in a bright, fun color—that way, as you walk, your colorful shoes will show pops of color with each step you take.

Choosing Hairstyles and Jewelry for a Deep-Plunge Neckline Dress

Even if you rent the perfect dress, the look won’t be complete until you pull it all together with the right hair and jewelry. When you’re picking the hairstyle and jewelry for your dress, the best place to start is the neckline. The neckline on your dress rental will help to shape the rest of your look and is a guide to everything from the necklace you should wear to the hair you should sport. If you choose a deep-plunge neckline dress, you’ve already got a look with a ton of glamour and that is guaranteed to stand out from the crowd. Here are the finishing touches you need.

Hairstyles
When you’re wearing a deep-plunge neckline, you don’t want your hair to become a distraction from the style. If you really want your neckline to be the star of the show, opt for an updo that keeps your hair completely off your shoulders and away from your face. If you want to tone down the neckline or have some additional balance to your look, try a half up, half down hairstyle. Pulling your hair back at the sides still shows off the deep cut of your neckline, but the loose, flowing hair in the back will soften the effect.

Jewelry
A deep-plunge neckline creates a necklace quandary. Although there is plenty of room to wear a chunky, statement necklace, doing so will only diminish the look of the plunge. With a deep-plunge neckline, it is acceptable to skip the necklace completely and let the dress do the work. Alternatively, you can opt for a lariat for a simple, understated look, or a choker for more drama. Balance your other pieces, including earrings, rings, and bracelets, with your necklace choice. If you’re making a dramatic statement with a choker, simple earrings are all you need. If you skip the necklace, dial up the drama with your other pieces.

From deep-plunges to sweethearts and every neckline in between, Lending Luxury has a huge selection of designer dresses to rent at great prices. Bring the looks of the runway home with our Tampa, FL dress rental service, or find out more about how you can wear your favorite couture dresses by calling (800) 403-9848.

Tips for Walking in Platform High Heels

If your dress rental calls for platform high heels, then you may be worried about how to pull them off without that telltale unnatural gait of a platform novice. This video shows you how to get the look and walk like a pro.

Keep in mind that platform shoes are designed in the way they are to allow for a higher heel. Because of the higher heel, you will need to shift your weight forward more than you do with a standard high heel shoe. You should also keep your stride a little slower for more control over your steps.
