What is the best dress for your body shape? Here, the top picks from the Practical Fashionista...
For the curvier body types: Go for something semi-fitted in softer fabrics that will flow with your curves. As well, showing a little bit of skin (shoulders, cleavage, legs) is never a bad thing and will actually streamline your sexy curves. Wrap dresses and sheaths are great options.
If you are shorter in stature: The simpler, the better! For lengthening, make sure to avoid too many embellishments or fullness, and keep the length just above or just below the knee. Go for a simple silhouette like a fitted sheath or empire dress.
If you are lacking curves: If you want to create curves, anything bias cut or belted will help you achieve that. If you don't care about creating curves and want to highlight your trim figure, a slim fitting shift dress is a great option.
