Good afternoon!

I hope everyone is loving this Monday. I am loving this Monday because the weather is perfect here in North Carolina. The high today is in the 80s with no rain. When I went out today running errands I saw a lot of people embracing this good weather with beautiful spring wear. I saw a lot of ladies in embracing this spring day by wearing various types of spring dresses. 

There are a lot of types of dresses a woman can choose but there are only a few dresses that are universally flattering for body types. I have found the top 3 figure flattering dresses that you can wear for spring. 

 Shift Dresses

Studded heels 

Shift dresses are figure flattering because of these dress are column cut and have no defined waist. 


For a curvy tummy- Try a dress that is polyester blend or has pleats in the mid section area. 

For a large bust- Pick a dress with vertical or horizontal darts to give you a shape. A line cut works best. 

                  For full hips or thighs -  a line shape ( smooths out lower half) and or vertical lines (elegantes body).

For a slim frame- a dress with detailing is best( pleats or darts)

Fit and Flare Dresses

Fit and flare dresses are fitted up top and flare out at the bottom or skirt. These dresses give an illusion of a hourglass figure or a more defined waist. You really can't go wrong with this dress type.


Different patterns and lengths are what can really help flatter your figure  even more.

The same rules for other dresses as for a pattern, length, and design can be used with fit and flare.

Maxi Dresses

For a curvy figure- cap sleeves look nice 

For a pear shape- empire waist gives less attention to fuller lower half

For a slim figure or athletic  shape- wear a belted or drawstring maxi . 

For short and petite: Maxis that are solid color elongate, empire, and structured dresses are the best. If you go with prints try smaller prints. 

A Few  Figure Friendly Dresses!

Whatever dress you choose, pick one that you feel that best in and wear your spring dress with confidence!
