How To: Find Your Perfect Dress

Door Emi Baldwin - Thursday 17 December 2015 | 14:56

Ladies, fear not, it is not impossible to find your perfect dress. We don’t mean perfect Wedding dress. Nope. We mean your perfect fitting dress. A dress that fits you unlike any other. That flatters your every curve and smooths over every bump (imaginary or not!) 

It doesn’t matter what the occasion or reason for this dress is, there is one principle to base your search on, the style.

Once you have nailed what style suits your body type then it’s game, set, match. 

Where to begin the search to find your perfect dress?

Athletic and Narrow

Are you a straight up and down kinda frame and often find yourself fretting when it comes to finding something girly to flatter your figure? Well then, there is no need. To suit your frame, you can pretty much have your pick of the bunch when it comes to dresses.

The thing to focus on is the things that make a dress sexy. Show off what you love most about yourself. As you don’t have to worry about being wider in places, then why not take full advantage and go for a backless dress or a sleeveless style (which are often high-necked) and will exaggerate your chest. After all, you can get away with it!

Wide Shoulders and Skinny hips

Find yourself stressing about being wider up top? There is no need! You can easily turn this into your best feature, by going for a sexy plunging neckline or halter style. If you want to create the illusion of wider hips, giving you that sexy “s” shape, then that is easily done in a skater style dress.

AND not to mention you are in excellent company. Having this bodyshape means you are amongst the likes of supermodel Cindy Crawford, Demi Moore, Giselle Bundchen and Naomi Campbell.

Big booty

Feed up with being told that a big booty is in fact great and you beg to differ? Well, there are two options here. Embrace it and go for a bodycon style, which will show off your womanly curves. Or why not try a long sleeved dress with a “v” neck. The wrap dress is always a winner here!

Take a leaf out of Kim’s book and rock the one-shoulder dress, it is the perfect style and will flatter and accentuate your curves in all the right places.


If you are a perfect hourglass figure then show it off! We love an off the shoulder style dress or a strapless number is easy for you to carry off!

or take a leaf out of Beyonce’s book and go full on, with a plunging neckline in the form of a wrap dress. Perfection.

Teeny Tiny Waist

Lucky you! If you have a tiny waist then the perfect style for you is a skater style, to show of those curves and create an incredibly feminine silhouette. Saying that, you will also look tip top in Bodycon!

Long Legs

If you’re a bit of a legs eleven then go mini or for a style dress with a high waist, which will exaggerate your lovely long legs and make you red carpet ready!
