The Perfect Cocktail Dress for your body type

More parties happen around the months of April - Early September… maybe because it’s warmer and people are more motivated to go out and enjoy the nice weather. Not to mention most weddings happen around summer season.

So around this time a lot of people need that perfect party dress. Of course we don’t want to wear that dress from last years wedding, where you had a picture of you on facebook almost catching the bouquet. Or that pink dress you wore at your nephews baptism or Jane’s graduation party. You want something new! Something unique, Something trendy, and most importantly comfortable. But even if we all (secretly) love shopping, it can be hard to find that perfect dress for an important occasion that looks perfect on us. That’s why here I made a list of best dresses for each body type:


Do you have big bust?

You might want to accentuate it by wearing V neck or halter top. But if you want to draw attention away from it, choose a dress with an A line skirt.
If you have small bust:
Wear dresses that have scoop or bandeau neckline or with appliques, ruffle, sequins, or other details that add dimension. Like the dress pictured below. Avoid deep plunging necklines.

Plus size dresses:
For plus size women I always like the layered dress on them, it hides the love handles (if they have it), it’s comfortable and it looks nice. I would also recommend the wrap dress and dresses that drape nicely. Avoid fabrics that are too clingy or baggy dresses, it makes you look even bigger. Check out stores like: Avenue.com, torrid.com, asheleystewart or AlwaysForMe.com Sales for nice prints and colors.

If you are too thin:
Wear layers! Wear cardigans or light jackets or dresses that has ruffles, flower appliques, or sequins. Thick belt also make gives the body more curve. Peplum is really in right now, that adds volume and shape too.

Best dress for petite women:
Dresses that has vertical details and V neck helps make a short woman look taller. Wrap dresses look good on almost all body types but especially for petite women because of the diagonal line and V neck. Knee length or shorter dresses will make you look taller and your legs longer, the shorter, the better. Wide belts normally makes shorter women even shorter, and dresses that has horizontal details or stripes are to be avoided to.
If you have a thick waist:
Redefine your waistline by wearing either drop-waist or empire waist. Avoid thick belts.
If you have heavy arms:
Wear flowing, ¾ bell sleeves. Avoid cap sleeves or sleeveless.


but however you look and no matter what body type you have, remember that real beauty comes from the inside and the dresses and accessories just adds flavor to your natural beauty.
