Finding the Right Dress for Your Body Type

Finding the right dress for your body type is a challenge for most women.  Everybody has a different shape and body type and finding the perfect little black dress that looks flattering on us is difficult.  There are different styles of dresses that look better on different body types and that is something you need to see and experience for yourself to get the most flattering look.

When you look your best you absolutely radiate confidence.  Modern society has conditioned us to be very self-conscious and there is always something that we want to change about our bodies.  Choosing a dress that flatters your figure can help you hide the things that you don’t want to show and accentuate the positives.  Looking good makes you feel good and that radiates from you.

Myths You Should Ignore

First you need to understand that there is no perfect body type, not even the celebrities you see gracing magazine covers are without their flaws.  Being healthy and fit is the most important and you should learn to embrace your body.  When we are in a dressing room trying on clothes all we ever see are the flaws that we have.  This also leads us to compare ourselves to others and that is something you need to stop right now.  Accept your body and learn to love it, part of that includes finding the right clothes that fit you.  Here are some tips that will help you find the perfect fit for your body type.

Bigger Hips and Thighs

Those of us who are a little bigger in the hips and thigh area then fitted dressed won’t look the best on you nor will shorter dresses.  Choose a dress with an A-line skirt but not one that is too full.  Wear brighter colors at the top and darker colors at the bottom of your skirt.  Two piece suits will look much better on you than dresses.

Full Waist

Some of us carry more weight around our midsection than we do in our hips or thighs.  For this type of body you want to make your torso look longer and that will draw the attention away from your waist.  To do this you need select a different waistline, choose a drop waist or an empire waist style dress. Use decorative belts that sit lower on your hips and use thinner style belts or chains.

Buying clothes that are flattering isn’t always easy but you can look great when you choose the clothes that fit your body type.  Take a friend with you who will be honest and tell you exactly what looks good on you.

New and Resale Brands

A consignment store is there to resell gently used high quality brands, they are very particular about the condition of the products they sell.  However because it has been gently used you are able to grab luxury brands at more than half off what they would be retail.  This is what attracts many people to consignment stores in the first place.  If you have designer clothes and accessories that you no longer wear then you have the chance to make a little extra cash.
