No excuses on this one. Everyone needs to have little black dress in their closet. There’s nothing that’s as versatile, flattering, and slimming—provided you select one that enhances your particular shape. In this episode, we show you how to do just that using six lovely Thread viewers as models. See how the dresses we selected highlight each girls assets, and let us know which one you'd like to wear.
There’s no one-size-fits all with the LBD. You need to customize the dress to show off areas you like and to detract attention from the areas want to downplay. All of which is doable! Here are our suggestions for what works on six different shapes:
Your goal is to elongate your frame. A sheath dress with a hem that hits just above the knee is a perfect cut for making your body appear extra long and lean while also giving your legs some of the limelight.
Your middle is your problem area. A dress with a defined waist will create the illusion of a smaller tummy. Also, details like romantic flutter sleeves are smart as they put the focus on your to upper torso.
The idea is to give your straight-up-and-down form the suggestion of curves. A peplum dress or a design with a belted detail and feminine capped sleeves will give the appearance of a shapely physique.
Think Beyoncé on this one. A bodycon dress will showcase your natural womanly figure and accentuate your waistline.
Fitted, but not too tight is the key. A faux wrap dress with a low v-neck is most flattering on the torso. Make sure the skirt isn’t too loose or too tight. You want it to just skim over your legs to create a smooth shape.
