Choosing a Prom Dress For Your Body Shape

What Body Type Am I?

If you aren’t sure of your body type, measure yourself across the shoulders, bust, hips, and waist. You’ll start to see where your body inclines and where you are widest. 

We have listed 6 types of body shape, you can easily know which type you are.


The slender body type, also known as Athletic or tall, is defined as having an overall thin frame. Slender body types is suited for a mermaid dress or trumpet dress, featuring a slit, as this will add curves and dimension to your look. Try to avoid straight Dress.

The pear body type has a narrower upper half (shoulders) with wider hips, thighs, and bottom. This body shape is easy to flatter. All you need is to place pretty details on top, emphasize the small waist, and de-emphasize the lower body to create a balanced silhouette. avoid bodycon Tight Dress,

The apple body type is beautifully well-suited for many dress styles. An apple body type typically carries weight through the middle section, has slim legs, and a shorter undefined waistline. A plunging neckline such as a sweetheart shape or deep v will look gorgeous on you. As will an off-the-shoulder style. If you're attending a cocktail party, take the chance to show off your legs since you tend to have beautiful gams.

If you have a petite body type, you are typically under 5 feet 4 inches tall. Then you’re petite. Petite girls come in all shapes, so make sure to consider if you’re a rectangle, hourglass, etc. Showing a little leg with a short dress can go a long way, or wearing an asymmetrical hemline to elongate your figure

The Hourglass Body Type is easily identifiable – you’ll have a narrow waist with a fuller bust and hips that are about equal in width. This creates a symmetrical curve on your upper and mid-body. The best dresses for this body type will accentuate the best asset, which is usually a well-defined waist. Natural waistlines form-fitted tops, v-necklines, open necklines, accentuated waistlines and wrap dresses will all look great and enhance an hourglass body type.

If you’ve been blessed with a fuller bust, by all means, flaunt it in a fitted look with slim waistline! A busty body type is exemplified by a large bust and narrow hips. The waist is often not well defined. The key to dressing a busty body type is to draw attention up to your face and to balance the broader upper body with the narrower lower body, to create an overall balanced appearance. This is achieved by choosing dresses that add curves to the hips while creating a more defined waist. If you love your legs, show them off, but be sure not to go too short with the hemline or you can create an unbalanced look.
