Have you ever bought one of those pretty dresses online only to realise that it does not look good on you? This is because you may have chosen a dress that does not match your body type. When purchasing dresses, it is essential to know what type of body you have and what features of your body you want to highlight or draw attention to. Likewise, it is also best to know which parts of your body are unflattering that you may want to hide. Knowing these realities about your body will allow you to choose which dresses will look good on you. Your body may fall under one of these body types.
The Inverted Triangle Body Type. If you have broad shoulders but have a small waistline, then you have an inverted triangle body. Women with this body type have a body that tapers and gets narrow towards the leg area. If you have this type of body, it is best to create a balance between your broad upper torso and the narrow bottom portion of our body. You create a balance by wearing tightly-fitted Sandro dresses, blouses, or jackets with solid dark colours. The clingy fit of these dresses will make your torso appear smaller. Likewise, wearing a jacket will draw attention away from your broad shoulders.
The Hourglass Body Type. Women with hourglass bodies have shoulders and hips that are symmetrical in size and have slim waistline in the middle. Women with this body type will have a body shape that resembles ancient sand timers. If you have an hourglass figure, consider yourself lucky since many believe that this is the ideal body type fit for celebrities. Hourglass bodies are also considered to be the most sensual type of body. However, women with hourglass bodies may still have difficulty picking out the right dress for them. It would help if you aimed to highlight your curves instead of hiding them. Attires that come in crop tops, wrap dresses, and pencil skirts will smoothen out the lines of your thighs while highlighting your curvy body.
The Banana Body Type. If your hips, waist, and shoulders have the same dimensions, you belong to the banana body type. Banana-type bodies have ideal proportions with a short bodice and a small bottom. It is best to choose dresses that will create a visual of having a more defined waist. It is best not to tuck in your blouses but instead wear blouses that end at your hip’s mid-section. Likewise, dresses that have empire waists will accentuate your figure and draw the attention away from your short bodice and small butt area.
The Pear-Shape Body Type. The pear body type is the most common. If you have shoulders that have a narrower dimension than your hips, then you have a pear-shaped body type. The key to choosing dresses for pear women is to choose clothes that will create an illusion of a much broader shoulder. Blouses with shoulder pads can create this illusion. Likewise, it is important to create a visual of slimmer hips by wearing clothes that will give a slimming effect to your hips and thighs.
Always remember, when choosing a dress, it is best to match it with your body type. It is also best to choose Sandro dresses that will highlight your body’s best points and create a balance with your body’s dimensions.
