A-line dress – This is a classic silhouette which flatters most body types. This silhouette remains tucked in at the waistline and then gently tapers down to create a wonderful hourglass silhouette.
Pintuck dress – This is a recent trend that has taken the world by storm. It is actually a modified A-line with a flowy skirt, which makes for a flirty look. It is really beautiful and feminine.
Wrap dress – This dress is really flattering for the #PlusSizeWoman. It adequately adjusts to the body and hugs the curves very effectively. It basically conceals and highlights the required areas. However, be careful that there is enough material to cover your whole body before you purchase this dress.
Maxi dress – Even a #MaxiDress can prove to be perfect for #PlusSizeWomen if the proper silhouette is chosen. Since the dress is long it is better to keep an open neckline to offset the dress. A well-defined and cinched waist is paramount and the loose “mu-mu” look should be avoided at all cost. Do consider a side split to ease the bulk of fabric in the maxi dress.
Shark bite hem dress – This is a lovely silhouette which has an asymmetrical hemline. It is really flattering for #PlusSizeWomen as it creates a diagonal line and makes a woman appear thinner.
Con dress – This type of dress is also known as the bar dress. It is a tight fitted dress. They are usually #CocktailDressesForEveningWear. Since they are tight fitted, they tend to tuck in and accentuate a #Woman’sCurves very well. However, this dress type is very revealing and might not be suited for women of all ages.
