Clothing for women especially is designed to meet women's interests based on how they look in certain outfits or dresses. Some women want to emphasize their legs, some the upper portion of their body, some their waistline, and so forth. With formal gowns, homecoming gowns, and prom dresses, it's no different. Check out the different styles of prom dresses available for each body shape below.
For the pear-shaped body, prom dresses with an a-line or full shirt are recommended to de-emphasize the hips. These should also have a fitted top to draw attention more to the upper portion of the body. If you prefer wearing a straight prom dress that's fitting to your body, try tying a thick or sheer scarf or wrap around your waist and allow it to hang in the front right above one of your legs. Or, a small tie-around purse or a unique belt that hangs loosely might do the trick. Wear jewelry and pull your hair up to attract attention to your face and upper body. http://www.angelweddingdress.com/p/chiffon-floor-length-v-neck-empire-a-line-short-sleeve-evening-dress-22168.html http://www.angelweddingdress.com/p/princess-tulle-strapless-empire-prom-dress-1246169-19636.html http://www.promgirl.com/shop/styles_and_trends/long
With a slim figure, you have many options. You can create "curves" with a bell-shaped dress and draw attention to the bust line. Or, you can wear prom dresses that bring out the waistline and wear a belt to create curves. Also, wear your hair down if you have long hair. Long, flowing hair also adds shape to your figure. Remember, the longer and straighter the gown, the more slender you will appear.
The hourglass figure is coveted by many, but enjoyed by few! With this type of figure, pretty much anything goes. You can wear your prom dress long, short, sleeveless, with or without a jacket. Your figure doesn't have to be hid or compensated for. It can be shown off with almost any style dress. So, be creative and don't be afraid to show it off.
