Apple Figure - Broad shoulders with narrow hips and thighsFull length or cocktail length dresses with one shoulder and square neckline details look best on women with apple figures. Fitted waist and empire waist silhouettes can hide tummies and look especially fabulous on ladies with this shape as well.
Boyish Figure - Straight shape flows from shoulders to thighs
To compliment a woman of this body shape, try a gown with a feature at the waist to give the illusion of an hourglass figure & add more shape. Adding a wide strap to the neckline will instantly flatter this figure to the fullest.
Pear Shape - Hip measurement
is fuller than bust measurement
shapes look stunning in dresses with attention grabbing necklines. And they'll appreciate the minimizing affects of a fitted waist & fuller skirt. Find a gown with surplice bodice detailing and you've hit the bulls-eye! Feel free to experiment with dresses that are cocktail or full length.
Hourglass Figure - Similar bust and hip measurements with a smaller waist circumference
Hourglass figures look best in various necklines including strapless dresses, scoop neck and v-neck. Belted/fitted waistlines will fit this body type beautifully! A body hugging dress will also flatter curves in all the right places.
