Dress style: Wrap dress

Perfect for: Hourglass figures

Women with hourglass figures have great curves and small waists. The styles you wear should always emphasise your curves, and show off your incredible waist. Wrap dresses are the perfect way to do this. The deep V of a wrap dress will flatter your bust, and the wrap detail will really share off your waist.

For a gorgeous silhouette, try this floral wrap dress from Zen Ethic

Dress style: Shift dress

Perfect for: Apple shapes

Women with an ‘apple’ shape carry weight around their middle. Often having shapely legs, if you’re an apple shape you should definitely try a shift dress. The cut of a shift dress will sit just far enough away from the body to hide any problem areas, while also accentuating your great legs.

Dress style: Fit and flare

Perfect for: Pear shape figures

A pear shape is defined by a small waist and wide hips. Pear shape figures can often feel out of proportion, so a fit and flare dress can be the perfect way to balance you out. If you’re this shape, you should also consider experimenting with different necklines – sweetheart necklines and even strapless dresses can help to even out your appearance.

For this body shape, we think this gorgeous fit and flare style tea dress could be the perfect choice.

Dress style: A-line

Perfect for: Straight shapes

If you have a straight body type, it means there’s little difference between the size of your hips, waist, and bust. For a ‘straight’ shape, A-line dresses and skirts can be extremely flattering as they create the illusion of curves.

This damask floral dress from Global Mamas is the perfect piece if you have a straight body type.

We hope these tips will you help to find your new favourite dress. You can browse our full collection of dresses here.
