The holidays are fast approaching so you need to make sure that your dress is not only cute and fashionable, but that it also looks good on you. While it might look good on a model, not everyone is built the same so you must find the dress that will fit your figure.
Drapey fabric such as a Greek styled dress may add bulk to your sides, where you least want it. Instead, opt for a corset dress with dark panels which will give the illusion of a tiny waist.
Horizontal lines will add tons of pounds to your silhouette, so try to stay away. Instead, pick a dress with a sash at the waist which creates a more feminine silhouette.
A gathered blouse and a high-waisted skirt will thicken you ( it only looks good on super-skinny people!). A stretch fabric dress will melt away pounds right in the middle.
