The Most Flattering Dress for Every Body Type

The Most Flattering Dress for Every Body Type

Every body type is unique, so the perfect dress looks different for everyone! Spoiler alert: the most flattering dress is all about balance.

There is a flattering dress for every body type, and we’ve made a list!

National Dress Day is on March 6th. Celebrate by discovering the most flattering dress for your body type and wearing it for a night out on the town!

Shopping for the perfect dress can be difficult and frustrating, especially when you need it for a big day or an important event. Luckily, MOBILESTYLES is here to eliminate some dress-shopping-induced stress. We’ve created a little guide to help you discover the most flattering dress for your body type. It’s all about balance.



Hourglass body shapes are typically curvy with equal proportions on top and bottom and a small waist. If your body has an hourglass shape, consider form-fitting dresses, body con, and dresses that tie at the waist or have an interesting waist detail. These dresses will draw attention to your curves and will make your waist appear even smaller.



Round body types tend to have a heavier midsection and thin legs. The best dress for this body type is something short that will show off those amazing legs! Also, dresses with an embellished/interesting neckline will draw attention away from your midsection to create more balance. A dress with a waist detail like a wrap dress is another great thing to consider when shopping for dresses to create the illusion of a cinched waist.



Just like a triangle, this body shape is smaller on top with a larger bottom. The key to dressing for this body shape is to find a dress that accentuates and adds to the upper body. The best dresses for this body type are dresses with a full skirt, a v neckline, interesting sleeves, and dresses with an embellished top portion.


Inverted Triangle

Inverted triangle body types tend to have broad shoulders and an athletic build. The best thing to remember when shopping for a dress that will best suit this body type is to create balance. Looking for dresses that will balance out your lower half with your upper body will create symmetry and more curves. Dresses that have a fitted top and flare at the bottom will be the most flattering.

Keep in mind that this is just a helpful guide. The number one rule for looking your best is actually feeling your best, regardless of your body shape or what type of dress you wear! Confidence is always key.

We hope this list of flattering dress tips helps you look and feel your best!
