There are so many things you should consider before buying your homecoming dress, such as the fabric, length and style, all of these aspects you should know. In addition of these, the key to pick out the right dress for your homecoming is ot know your body type. Here we collect some suggestions you should know, read on and hope these would help you.
For apple shaped body type, choosing a homecoming dress with a V-neck or empire-line neckline to elongate the body and to detract from the natural waist lines. Dresses with belts cinched at the smallest part of the waist are also very attractive for the apple shape – additionally, empire dresses help to conceal or slim the mid-section, making the body look slimmer. And shorter homecoming dresses show off the apple shape’s best assets – her legs! Choose a frock with a shorter hemline to accentuate the legs and to deter from the midsection.
Girls with the pear shape body type typically have rounded hips and posteriors, with slim stomachs and small chests. We recommend selecting a homecoming dress that detracts attention away from the hips and the thighs and accentuates the shoulders, the elongated torso and the flat stomach. The design should downplay the hips and add shape to the upper-body. Strapless homecoming dresses provide girls with this body type a chance to display their slender arms, particularly dress styles with ruffles on top, which provide the upper-body with extra shape. A-line styles also work particularly well with pear-shaped bodies.
The hourglass figure is usually well-rounded in the hips, thighs and/or chest area, making girls with this shape extra-curvy. The trick? Choosing a homecoming dress that accentuates and balances the weight of the curves, without hiding the body shape. We recommend selecting homecoming dresses that cinch at the waist to highlight the slim, narrow hourglass figure, and to shy away from baggy dresses that may hide or add weight to the body shape. Wrap dresses and fitted dresses are ideal for this body type, as well as dresses made from light-weight fabrics that skim the torso flatteringly, without adding weight.
