How to Pick a Dress for Your Body Type

The key to finding a dress you’ll feel confident in and be excited to show off is understanding which looks suit your body type the best. When you rent a dress, look for one that accentuates your favorite features, so that the dress fits comfortably and you feel great while wearing it. These tips can apply to any kind of dress, from shorter cocktail dress to long, formal gowns.

If you have an hourglass shape, define your waistline.
If have a curvy bust and hips and your waistline is your smaller than your hips, look for dresses that define your waist. Belted dresses are also a good option, as youare dresses with elbow-length sleeves, which will also draw eyes to your waist. For sleeveless dresses, look for tank-style tops or cap sleeves. Empire waist and fit-and-flare dresses are also good options.

If you have an athletic shape, show off your arms.
If your weight is evenly proportioned throughout your body and you don’t claim to be curvy, then you have an athletic shape. Forgo sleeves, as any sleeveless dress will show off your slim arms and neckline. Halter styles are also good for this body type, and high-necklines will create a dramatic look and make your bust appear curvier.

If you have an apple shape, play up your top half.
Apple shapes tend to carry their weight in the lower part of their bodies, so dresses that accentuate your top half create balance. Strapless styles are perfect for apple shapes, as are A-line dresses and wrap dresses. For length, look for styles that hit at or below the knee. For floor-length styles, make sure it is balanced with a V-neck or plunging neckline.
