If you want to look good in retro style dresses, then it’s vital to choose a dress that suits your body shape.
Bottom-Heavy – If you’re heavy on the bottom, choose fuller skirts to streamline your bottom half, and go for strapless dresses to draw attention to your top half.
Large-Chested – Busty girls should go for dresses with V and square necklines and three-quarter length sleeves. Choose plain tops (loud patterns or embellishments will make your chest look weightier).
Small-Chested – Small-chested girls should choose dresses with ruffles or embellishments on the chest to make their busts look fuller.
Short with a Long Torso – Choose dresses that are busy on top to draw the eye upwards. Go for dresses with a high waist and steer clear of dresses with a dropped waist.
Tall with a Short Torso – To focus the attention on your legs, choose dresses with an interesting design on the skirt. Skirts that are straight or flare out work well for this body type.
Pear-Shaped – If you’re a thick-waisted girl, then trendy dresses with an empire waist, which falls just under the bust, are your best friend; they will emphasize the smallest part of your waist.
