How to find your dress size?

It's best to do some measurements of your body as in the first stage. Exactly it's about the circumference of the bust, waist, hips. Thanks to this, you can verify the size of the dresses in the above tables which size is right for you. Check also if the sold dress is in the sizes EU, US or UK - this is very important. If the size falls between, or between 8 and 10, choose the bigger one, thanks to which you will avoid too tight dresses.

Perfect dresses for Pear

The envelope or shirt dress will be perfect for your figure. V-neckline exposes the neckline, and the cut tied at the waist will perfectly highlight the narrow waist. The bottom should be slightly flared to allow hips to flow freely. Patterns and decorations on the upper part of the body will also work perfectly, so that the silhouette will get the right proportions.

Perfect dresses for the hourglass

The silhouette adored in the 1950s and 60s of the last century is best presented in cuts inspired by that period. A tight top, perfectly fitted waist and bottom line A will perfectly highlight your figure, emphasizing the bust, flattening the belly and exposing the narrow waist. Look for dresses with a deep, round neckline or in the shape of a heart.

Perfect dresses for Apples

You can hide the braw of a clear waist exposing the narrowest part of the silhouette - in your case it will be ribs. Empirical styles that form the waistline just under the bust will be great, thus extending the silhouette. A perfect cut will also be envelope dresses with a v-neckline that will give a torso look.

What dresses to wear to look neat?

Buying a well-chosen dress is a challenge for most women. All are different in dimensions and proportions, while most of the clothes in the stores look like they were created for one type of figure. And there are almost as many types as women in the world. Fortunately, there are several major subtypes. With the knowledge of which one belongs to, it will be much easier to choose each outfit, to emphasize what is worth emphasizing and to hide the shortcomings.
