Body Shape Series: Dresses for Hourglass shape!

Hey hey everyone!!

Today I bring you some dresses for the Hourglass shaped woman!! I actually fall into this category as well and I must say, ever since I discovered what types of dresses suit my shape, I love wearing them!! I never liked dresses or skirts before and I always thought they looked weird on me (probably because they did haha) and now even though I still have some issues with my body, know what suits my shape really helps me through my days! I hope it helps you girls as well! =D

Dresses for Hourglass shape

The Hourglass woman usually features a full bust and hips and a small waist! This means, if you want to show off your curves, you should emphasize that waist of yours (but remember not to looks slutty…unless that’s what you’re aiming at..then I’m not going to judge!)!! And what better way to do so than with a dress that cinches in?

A good way of doing it is by cinching it in with a belt! If you have a baggy dress, don’t just drown in it, cinch it with a belt t and you’ll look gorgeous!

Another big tip is to find out where your waist actually is and if it is short or long! I, for instance, have a rather short torso and a small waist, but I am also rather curvy. This means, if I wear a very thin belt it will look like my curves are swallowing my belt and I look larger, but if I wear a belt that is to wide, I will look like I have no torso at all! It’s all about finding the right proportions!

Of all of those dresses I really like the black one, because of the detail on the waist, that would draw the attention to the smaller part of my body!! Thinking of trying to find this dress over here =P I also rather like the coral one as well!

Tell me what you thought of this posts in the comments below!
Don’t forget that I always answer you back!

Have a great day!
