Women's bodies come in many shapes and sizes. At Fashion World we think this deserves to be celebrated! Finding a frock that perfectly fits and flatters your frame can be a tricky task, so we've created a guide to help you choose the best dresses for your body shape.

Full hips and thighs Wider shoulders Bigger bust Hourglass

The bardot dress

Perfect for full hips and thighs

If you have fuller hips or a pear-shaped figure, the key is to emphasise your upper body and balance out your proportions.

Bardot dresses beautifully balance your shoulders with your hips.
V-Neck styles are also great for drawing attention upwards.

The shirt dress

Balances out wider shoulders

Are your shoulders wider than your waist and hips? If you have an apple-shaped figure, go for styles that compliment your upper half.

Dresses with plunging necklines are eternally flattering and will balance your shoulders with your hips. Shirt dresses will also skim your silhouette and enhance all your best bits.

The wrap dress

Flattering for bigger bust

When you have a fuller bust, finding a dress that fits your top and bottom halves can be a challenge.

Wrap dresses are versatile and enhance your figure in all the right places. Want to add some drama to your look? V-neck dresses are the ultimate statement-makers for bigger busts.

The skater dress

Highlight an hourglass figure

If you're curvy around the hips and chest with a defined waist, choose a style that highlights all your gorgeous curves.

Skater dresses are some of the best dresses for hourglass shapes as the feminine fit accentuates your best features. Dresses that cinch you in at the waist, such as bodycon dresses, are also wardrobe must-haves.
