Every body has its strengths and weaknesses. Fortunately, selecting the right clothing for your body type can enhance natural features while eliminating insecurity and discomfort.

The hourglass figure is one of the most commonly known body shapes. It is characterized by a smaller waistline and proportionate bust and hip measurements.  This body shape's best feature is its tiny waist. Hourglass shaped women should emphasize this area by using belts or dresses with waist detailing.

The pear shape is similar to that of the hourglass with a small waistline, yet differs due to its larger hip, thigh, and bottom measurements.  Flatter this shape by focusing on the upper half. By bringing attention towards the bust and shoulders, the wider bottom appears smaller and evens the proportions on the top and bottom.

The apple body shape is characterized by slim legs and bottom, and weight is typically carried throughout the midsection.  To flatter your figure, wear clothing that attracts away from the midsection, as this area is already filled out. Rather, emphasize the bust region and legs to balance out the silhouette.

This ribber dress by Lilla P falls perfectly over troublesome areas for the apple body type. The asymmetrical hemline draws attention away from the midsection and redirects the eye to the legs instead. Likewise, the V-neck cut creates an element of interest and provides some skin exposure, while allowing the body of the dress to gently flow over the middle.

The rectangle is uniformly proportionate throughout. This slim shape has limited curves with a smaller bust and straight hips.  Rectangle body shapes should look to create an illusion of curves and to define the already tiny waistline.

The triangle body type is characterized by broader shoulders and bust along with slimmer hips and legs.  In order to even out this frame, dresses that fill out the bottom half provide the illusion of a more symmetical figure.
