  • An A line dress is very flattering as the full skirt will give the illusion of a smaller waist
  • V-Neck dresses are great for ample busts.
  • Choose an Empire line if you have a small bust
  • Wrap dresses are great as they accentuate the bust and the side tie draws attention from the waist
  • Avoid halternecks
  • Avoid fitted or clingy silhouettes
  • A drop waist is flattering for apples
  • Look for styles that sculpt the waist
  • Draw attention to areas of your body you really like, legs, arms, cleavage
