Every woman knows the frustration of trying dresses on and it not fitting the way that you want. The key to a great shopping experience is a guide to what will look best on you.
If you have a slender body, where you have a thin frame throughout or even an athletic body, you are going to want to show off that long and lean body. A dress that is fitted and creates curves will be great for you. Some styles that will work are empire waist, mermaid, A-line, ball gowns, halters, and one shoulder dresses. Embellishments around the shoulder or even the bust, like this dress below, will look fabulous on your body too.
If you are shorter than 5ft 3 inches tall, you have a Petite body type. We know it can sometimes be frustrating to find clothes that fit you especially when it comes to prom dresses. One great option is to show off your legs with a short dress, it will make you look great and make a confident statement at any event. A high-low dress is another great option for your body, they will actually give the appearance that you are taller. When looking for dresses keep in mind that slim fitting, V-necklines, pleating, and vertical prints will also elongate your body. A dress like the one below will look wonderful on a Petite body.
