Prom Dress Figure Fixers


PacificPlex Strapless Layered Beaded Sweetheart Neckline

Finding the perfect Prom dress is always a challenge. Since your dress is the centerpiece to all your other accessories, it's important that you select the best dress for your needs.

This includes keeping in mind how your figure plays into the selection of the most flattering dress.

Full Figure

Avoid clinging, too tight dresses or rounded neckines that emphasize and magnify curves. Instead, go for the tailored styles that helped to balance your proportions.

Boat necked dresses which enhance your shoulders are a good selection.

Large Hips

Avoid body hugging fashions or fabrics that accentuate your hips in any way.

Another no-no is a straight skirt or stick straight skirt. Go for A-line styles that enhance the hips. Necklines that draw the eye up to the top of the body are excellent choices. Consider a V or similar type of neckline for upper body focus.

Big Bust

Avoid dresses with lots of cleavage or low cut accents. Steer clear of tight tops that push your bust line up and out. Consider a higher neckline that will display your curves in a better light.

A ball gown with accent on the lower part of your body is a good choice as well.

Small Bust

Avoid fitted or plain necklines that will flatten your chest even further. Also rethink simple, straight silhouettes that lose your curves.

Try bold prints that will trick the eye. Look for soft, draking necklines that create a shapely vision.
