They say there are only a few main body types. Although we know this is very simple way to look at our unique bodies, it helps to determine what will flatter your silhouette and give you room to express your own personal style.
Curvy women look smashing in fabrics that drape well and show off the waistline. A wrap dress or belted shirt dress is just the thing to accentuate your sexy curves.
If you have a smaller bust, you can emphasize your assets with strategic gathers, shirring and other details. Sheath dresses and chemise styles, A-lines and wrap dresses are stunning too.
Play up a fuller bustline by showing a little leg and a hint of cleavage. Fabrics with a bit of stretch skim your curves. A sleeveless sheath or princess dress would be a knockout choice.
A boyish figure can look more feminine in styles that show off and define the waist. Accessorize with an attention-getting belt, look for detailing at the waistline, an A-line silhouette.
If you have fuller hips, you can create length with designs using vertical seams and details. A tailored bust or waistline with a slightly flared skirt is very sexy.
