Choosing the Suitable Prom Dress for Different Body Shapes

Different girls have different body shapes, so you should choose a prom dress according to your body shapes.
Top-Heavy Body Types
Girls who belong to top heavy body types, namely, having large shoulders and bust size, V-neckline style can be an ideal choice which helps to flaunt their full bust. Besides, sweetheart and scoop necklines are also great options. Halter neck style dresses are great options to minimize broad shoulders. Do remember that heavily beaded, embroidered or embellished bodices should be avoided, as these will make you appear heavier on top.

Pear-Shaped Body Types
If you have a bigger bottom, do avoid the fitted sheath dress, clingy fabrics and skintight gowns which will easily expose your large hips. Ball gown-style dresses with fitted bodices and full skirts will be the desirable type for pear shaped women. Fitted bodices and corset-style dresses can greatly enhance your beautiful shoulders and waistline while the full skits can perfectly cover your hips.

Short Heights
For petite girls, ball gown style dresses which can add extra height visually, thus making you look taller. Alternatively, also to the other extreme, opt for a short or mini prom dress with an A-line, sheath or silhouette style since this kind of dresses can give you the opportunity to show off your legs and make them look longer with a pair of high heels, of course.
