Choosing the Right Prom Dress for Your Body Shape

“The only rule is don’t be boring and dress cute wherever you go. Life is too short to blend in.”
―Paris Hilton

Petite or slender, no matter what your body shape, you can sizzle the prom night with a dress that is a perfect fit for your figure. Take a look at the options given in this Buzzle article to help you find the right dress to flatter your figure.

Ever wondered why a particular dress looks good on certain people but the same just falls boringly on you? Well, the answer to this is as simple as understanding that not every one is made alike. Apart from the distinguishing features, each individual is blessed with a different body type. That said, it’s time you determined what is your body shape.

Are you a triangle or a rectangle? Do you have the coveted curves that make an hour-glass figure, or are you simply busty? Understanding your body type is one of the easiest way to find a dress that will not just flatter your figure but also make you look fabulous and attractive. Basically, understanding your body shape works to your advantage by allowing you to accentuate your coveted features, while down playing the negative aspects of your shape. So, whether you are curvy, busty, slender, petite, or blessed with a generous bottom, you are sure to find a dress that will make you look stunning for the prom.

Simply put, if you have a fuller bust, a wide waist, teamed with slender arms, legs, and hips you are an apple-shaped body. Your broad shoulders and heavier bust is what makes your upper body noticeably larger than the rest of your body.
Tips to flaunt your full figure
Draw attention away from your mid-section by accentuating your dress just below the bust area. You can very well carry an empire waist dress, or an A-line dress to draw attention to your bust. Thanks to your fuller body, you can pull off square, scoop, sweetheart, plunging or V-necklines very well. Avoid clingy or stiff dresses that will draw attention to your middle. Accentuate your slender arms and broad shoulders with a strapless dress, and stay away from puffy sleeves and full-sleeved dresses. Show off your slender legs with a short A-line dress or a short empire waist dress.
