- You must choose the right type of sundress to flatter your body shape. For the women who have a toned torso can carry off the strapless dresses with panache. Wear sundress that has a tight grip on the bust in the form of smocking or an elastic band around the bust. There is nothing better than being able to add volumes to your dress to accentuate some areas!
- If you are petite wear sundress that will accentuate your figure and make it look fuller. Choose a sundress that has ruffles or similar detailing on the neckline, if you have a small bust. Do not opt for a very high hem-line; instead pick a dress that is mid-thigh or a little longer with vertical lines to give the illusion of height. A tank dress that is fitted, with a v-neck will make you look even smaller.
- For women who are tall and slender and may have boyish frame can wear almost anything and carry it off with ease. They can wear large prints, daring necks, strapless sundresses, though, you should stay away from halters as they do not bring out the best in your figures.
- For the women with a large bosom wear sundress with straps and halter styles, they suit your frame and complement you and don’t overwhelm your structure. Especially if you can find sundresses with built-in support is God-sent. Wear dresses that have a tiny waist to draw the attention to your slender figure.
- The pear shaped women should opt for the strapless sundresses with smocking on the chest. The smocking draws attention from the problem areas and focuses on beautifying the body, without over-exposing you.
- Choose a high waistline if you are not very tall. The empire waistline adds height. Go for mono-chromes without any print. A sundress with an attached empire-line will highlight the smallest part of your waist.
- If you do not have washboard abs and have a tummy, you could go in for an empire waist line sundress too. Wear sundress that has a slight pouf (flow) below the waist line. That de-accentuates the problem areas and looks very elegant. Or you could choose a sundress with a belt at the tiniest part or the waist. That makes your waist look small.
With all these things in mind you can choose the perfect summer sundress for you and be the center of attention at any get together!
