well not just prom dresses
|Hourglass figure - Anything goes with a
figure like this. Your dress can be long or short, sleeveless or with or
without a jacket. A strapless or off-the-shoulder gown will be just right.
Make the most of your proportions in simple, classic lines. Avoid too much
detail on the bodice or skirt that may make your perfectly balanced
proportions look too heavy, or a two-piece, two-color gown that can result
in a choppy look, splitting you in two.
|Pear-shaped body - De-emphasize your hips
by wearing an a-line or slightly full skirt. If you prefer a straight,
form-fitting dress tie a sheer scarf around your waist or wear a unique
belt that hangs loosely around your waist to draw attention away from your
hips. You may want to choose a gown with a long, textured bodice with
abundant trim, drawing the eyes to that area.
|Busty shape - To de-emphasize the upper
body, wear a gown that attracts the eye to the hemline or waistline.
Choose a dress with a handkerchief hemline, for instance, or a full skirt
with lots of ornamentation, creating a curvier lower body. Avoid cinched
waists, empire styles that fit high under the bust, or lots of adornments
on the bodice. V-neck, boatneck and keyhole yokes are for you.
|Full-figured girl - A princess silhouette
with vertical panels and no waist, or the straight, sleek lines of a
chemise will be perfect. Avoid heavy materials, clinging fabric, bold
patterns, contrasting colors or figure hugging styles. To minimize hips,
choose a dropped V waist. Embroidery near the neckline, a V or shallow U
neckline will draw attention to your face.
