Dresses For Different Body Types

Dresses For Different Body Types

Hi ladies! Today I’m sharing dresses for different body types. I’m keeping it simple and sharing 5 body types; hourglass, apple, pear, rectangle, and inverted triangle. Knowing your body type is helpful for choosing clothes that will accent your best features and boost your confidence.


You’re likely an hourglass shape if your hips and bust are the same size. For those with an hourglass figure, dresses that highlight the waistline and flatter curves, such as wrap dresses or A-line silhouettes, work beautifully.


You’re likely apple shaped if your shoulders are wider than your hips. Apple-shaped bodies can opt for empire waist dresses or styles that cinch just below the bust, creating a balanced look. It’s probably best to say away from puff sleeves and shapeless dresses.


You’re probably pear shaped if your hips are wider than your bust. Pear shaped individuals can accentuate their upper bodies with dresses that emphasize the shoulders or feature embellishments while skimming over the hips and thighs. A-line or fit and flare skirts are the most flattering pear shaped dresses.


If your hips, waist, and bust are equal, you may have a rectangular body. Rectangular body types can create the illusion of curves with fitted sheath dresses or belted styles.


Lastly, you’re an inverted triangle if you have broader shoulders than hips, with little to no waist definition. An inverted triangle opts for dresses with A-line skirts, or asymmetrical hemlines can add balance by drawing attention away from the shoulders.

Remember, body types are unique; the key is wearing what makes you feel comfortable and confident in your skin!

I’d love to know your body type and where you find the best dresses. 

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.

Beauty for the Heart™But I keep praying to you, Lord, hoping this time you will show me favor. In your unfailing love, O God, answer my prayer with your sure salvation. Psalm 69:13

If you struggle to set aside time for prayer, check out these simple steps to keep you focused. You can pray any time of the day, but I also find it’s good to have a specific time to read my Bible and pray.

1. Set a specific time: Choose a time of day that works best for you.
2. Create a sacred space: Designate a quiet and comfortable place to focus on prayer.
3. Use a prayer journal: Writing down your prayers can help you maintain focus and keep track of your thoughts.

Be flexible: Establishing a routine takes time, so be patient with yourself. If you miss a day or two, don’t get discouraged; simply recommit and continue.

There is power in prayer!

Let your beauty shine from the inside out today.
