Right dress for your body type

For most high school schools, Prom Night is a big night and it makes sense in the world to try and find the dress that would look perfect on you. There is definitely more to Prom than just the dress, but that dress is a big part of what makes a girl special throughout the night. It's no easy task to choose that dress, especially if you are picky or if you do not have too much experience of special dresses, but it will be much easier after you have gone through all the tips below.

Do you know what your body type is?

The female body type goes beyond just curly or narrow when it comes to fashion, and matching your body type to your dress is crucial when you want to find the perfect Prom dress. If you do not know what we're talking about here, check them below to see which body type you can identify the most with.


This is traditionally considered to be the perfect female body type to have an aesthetic appeal, but opinions may differ. In terms of fashion, however, it is the narrow waist and the proportional figure that gives an edge. While such a proportional body would allow you to carry bold or conservative style without worrying for too many parameters, mermaid / trumpet dresses will look particularly good. Another popular alternative to adorn the hourglass figure is a long flowing dress with a cute neckline.

Pear shape

When the hips are substantially wider than the waistline on a female frame, with a relatively smaller bust and narrow shoulders, it is known as a pear shaped figure. If this applies to you, choose a dress that balances the proportions by being tight on top and around the waist, but flowing more generously under the waist. Half or quarter necklace dresses are a good choice here, but you can easily pull off long-sleeved dresses with a pear-shaped body, as well as sleeveless dress. The halter neck is a good option, while you go strapless is another.

Apple Shape

Contrary to the pear form, women who have a particularly big bust in comparison to their hips are considered to have an apple-shaped figure. An A-line dress with classic empire silhouette is always a good idea, but do not choose it in white (which is common) because lighter colors are best avoided here. Deep necklaces, halves, strapless dresses and almost any other style that accentuates the upper body is what to look for. Do not shy away from embroidered or ornate long-sleeved robes, either to fit perfectly with an apple-shaped figure.

Inverted triangle (wide shoulder)

Just as the term suggests, women with wide shoulders, an undefined waistline and relatively narrow hips fall under this category. The goal is to create an illusion of a defined waist and move the focus from your wide shoulders. To keep the people's attention away from the shoulders, take a look at some of JOVANI long-sleeved dresses that are pretty flawless, especially when you go for a conservative look. Steer away from the shoulder and halve your neck dresses but as they will accentuate the shoulder width more. JOVANI's embellished belt long sleeved V-necklace is actually one of the best options for women with wide shoulders and a narrow waist because the band creates an illusion of a defined waist, the deep V-neck accentuates the bust and the white dress is just short enough to draw attention to the bottom without lifting the narrow hipline. In general, ball gowns, ruffled skirts and A-line dresses can all work, but you must be optional with them.

The rectangle

When the shoulders, waist and hips appear to be quite equal in width, the frame should be classified as a rectangular body type. While the main problem here is a lack of defining lines, this also creates an opportunity for you to experiment with a variety of options. It is easy to create an illusion of definition of a rectangular body with asymmetric inserts, deep necklaces, floating dresses, neck neck and waist hug dresses among others. The matter is as long as you draw attention to you when you create a little symmetry and definition, you can basically drag it off with a rectangular body.

It would be wrong to say that the body's body type should be the only determinant factor when choosing a prom dress, but if you get that part right, the rest of it will not be as confusing as before.
