Have you ever fallen in love with a dress, only to try it on and realize that it doesn’t quite flatter you the way you want it to? Well, we have all been there. Luckily, there is a way you can avoid this frustration, and that is by educating yourself about types of dresses that will flatter your body type and accentuate your favorite features.

With so many styles and silhouettes in the market, it can seem daunting to find something that works best for you, but don’t worry because we have your back. Whether you want to play up your curves or highlight your shoulders, there are some stylish and strategic pieces that are designed to do just that.

1.For your curves
Curves are meant to be flaunted, not hidden. And wearing dresses that hug you at the right places is the key to doing just that. Accentuate your waist and draw attention to the slimmest part of your body by wearing dresses that are belted or cinched. You can even wear dresses that have a waistband design, like our Olivia Dress, Sophie Dress and Fiona Dress.

2.For your legs
If you want to accentuate the lower part of your body, wear dresses that reveal your legs. Legs are best flattered by short dresses, especially the ones that end above your knee, like our Gina Dress and Vivienne Dress. Pair these dresses with nude pointy pumps to create the illusion of “legs for days.”

3.For your upper body
For those who want to emphasize the shape of their upper body. You can choose dresses that have interesting necklines and on the upper half which will draw attention to your bust and décolletage, such as the Raquel Dress. This dress is also very flattering for those ladies that like to show off some cleavage as well, it is just sexy enough, without being overtly sexy.

4.For your shoulders
If you have strong, sexy shoulders, you might as well flaunt them for the world to see. Look for cold-shoulder styles such as our Carina Dress. This versatile LBD can take you from desk to dinner, it has just the right amount of serious for a day at the office, mixed with fun for after work. This Carina Dress is adorned with feminine touches from the contrast buttons as well as bow ties at the end of the sleeves.

Even our Genevieve Dress, which is a women’s black midi dress comes with an asymmetric sleeve, is perfect for showing off some shoulder. The structure of both these dresses are effective in making your shoulders look more shapely and attractive.

5.For your arms
Love your arms? Give them a starring role in your look by putting on dresses that feature sleeves that contour and complement your arms. Sleeveless dresses, such as our Bella Dress as well as our Bianca Lace dress are some examples. In fact the Bianca Lace Dress, is one of our favorites that is flattering on all different body shapes and sizes, it will hug and contour your curves like no other dress you have ever worn!
