HOW TO DRESS FOR YOUR FIGURE

Fit Like A Dream: How to choose the silhouettes that let you shine brightest.

We all know that no woman fits into a single category of figure or shape, which is why we like to go for clothing that makes us feel confident, beautiful and of course, works with our individual proportions. We’ve found that when you know what occasion or wedding dress silhouette you’re looking for, finding a dress that’s perfect for your figure is easy. We live by the three loose guidelines we’ve outlined below, noting that one size never fits all. 

  • If your chest is larger than your hips, try flowy silhouettes that don’t rely on super-structured waists, (our signature hand-beaded blouson dresses), or breezy A-line silhouettes. These skim the body gracefully, with just the right amount of movement, and create a streamlined, elegant look. SEE MORE STYLES >

  • If your chest and hips are the same size, it’s all about proportion. Go for volume on top or on bottom, but not both. Halter dresses, scoop necklines, round necklines and sleeveless styles all hang beautifully and work for every occasion. SEE MORE STYLES >

  • If your chest is smaller than your hips, go for styles that elongate the silhouette, and highlight the waist, back or neckline. Scoop neck styles are also ultra-flattering, as well as V-necks in almost any evening gown silhouette. SEE MORE STYLES >
