These Dresses Look Good On Every Woman, No Matter Her Body Type

Forget shopping for your figure – these five dresses are flattering to absolutely everyone. Try one or all five – we promise, you won’t be disappointed.

A-Line Dresses

A-line dresses, with their fitted bodices, tapered waistlines and flared skirts, do the universally flattering favor of accentuating the waist – or, the part of the female figure that tends to be smallest. This creates the covetable hourglass figure without an uncomfortably tight bodice. The flared skirt further favors pear-shaped women, as it draws the eye up from the body’s larger bottom half. That skirt, along with the narrow shoulders of the A-line dress, make thick torsos seem more lean. Finally, women who don’t have many curves will get a little more shape from the illusion of curves created by the cinched waist.

Shift Dresses

A shift dress that fits appropriately will look good on any sort of figure. Make sure it’s large enough to comfortably fit over your body’s largest part, whether that’s your hips, butt or chest. This might mean that the rest of the dress is too big, but a good tailor should be able to take it in wherever necessary. This is a relatively simple task that shouldn’t be too expensive, even if there’s a lot of fabric to take in. The goal is that the shift retain its signature smooth and clean lines.

Wrap Dresses

Wrap dresses – specifically knee-length versions with long sleeves and a jersey knit – look good on everyone. The cinched waist with a tie on the side helps define the waist. Whether your waist is big or small, defining it will make you look simultaneously slimmer and curvier. The V-neck naturally created by the wrap also serves to accentuate the chest.

Paneled Dresses

With outer panels that are one color and a middle panel that’s another hue, paneled dresses are flattering to any figure. Having different shades on the outside of the dress causes the eye to move inward near the waist, which in turn makes that area look smaller and your entire body slimmer.

Bodycon Dresses

Though a bodycon dress might sound scary, it actually has the potential to look great on any body type. The most important trait you need to pull off this style isn’t any one physical feature, but a strong sense of confidence. Once you’ve got that under control, it’s all about knowing what part of your body you want to accentuate. Whether that’s your hips, your waist or your butt, there’s a bodycon dress that’s made for it.
