The perfect little black dress for your body

Every woman should have a little black dress some where in her closet. But how to choose the right one for your body type? Here are a few tips.

 Stright :

 This means that your hips and bust are balanced and your waist is not very defined. You probably have a bottom that is more flat than round. You tend to gain weight in your torso first and then your upper thighs and arms. Your lower legs are always shapely and one of your best assets.

Try off the shoulder dresses with an A-line or full skirt and a fitted or belted waist to create curves.such as

As a Pear Body type (sometimes called triangle), you hips are larger than your bust and you have a nicely defined waist. You have an elegant neck and proportionately slim arms and shoulders. You first gain weight in your bottom and legs flowed by you tummy and upper body. Your waist is your best asset so don’t be afraid to show it off

Off the shoulder or strapless dresses with a fitted waist and an A-line skirt show off your slim shoulders and neck while camouflaging your heavier bottom.

Hour glass:
Lucky you! You have the Hourglass body type that most women strive for. Your bust and hips are well balanced and you have a beautifully defined waist. Your have gently rounded shoulders that align nicely with your hips. Your waist is obvious and gracefully curves out to your hips. You most likely have a rounded bottom and beautiful side as well as front profile. Your upper body is proportionate in length to your legs which are shapely. From top to bottom, you are a picture of harmony and balance

Dresses with ruching or draping across the bust with a wide fitted waist and full skirt make your waist look tiny and enhance your hourglass figure.

As a Diamond body type, your hips are broader than you bust and shoulders and you have a full midsection. You have a tendency to gain weight in you stomach, back, hips and buttocks. Your waist is undefined and the widest part of your frame. You carry some weight in your upper legs, but your lower legs are shapely and one of your most attractive features. You also have proportionately slender, attractive arms
