Which dress is suitable for my body type?

Finding the perfect dress is easy once you know what your body type is. Here is a quick rundown of the most common body types, just in case you’re not sure:

  • An hourglass figure is one that has a clearly defined waist, with hip and bust measurements that are almost the same. Shop for form-fitting dresses and wrap dresses that draw attention to the smaller waist for a look that is va-va-va voom! Avoid anything oversized or too flowy. You’ll lose your shape and simply look wide! When in doubt, add a belt to balance the look and emphasize the waist.
  • Apple shaped women also have a bit of a waist, those less defined than that of an hourglass. Apple shaped figures usually have shoulders that are broader than the hips. Low cut dresses that highlight your slender upper body look fantastic. Like your hourglass friends, don’t be afraid of form fitting dresses or to cinch at the waist.
  • Pear shaped gals have narrow shoulders and wide hips. The waist is also usually wider than the bust. Highlight your upper body with a V-neck or boat neck and have fun with embellished necklines. Stray from flowy skirts or long lengths. Your best bet is a hem that hits just below the knee.
  • The athletic figure has shoulder and hip measurements that are pretty much the same. There is also no defined waist. Fitted shift dresses look fantastic on this shape, as do voluminous flowy styles. To add the illusion of curves, add a belt!

Of course, your figure may be a mix of two of these. The good news is, no matter which figure type is yours, there are tons of dresses that work perfectly with your shape. The collection of fashion dresses at creation L’s includes plus sizes, too. One look at our fashion dresses and you‘ll agree: we’ve got something for every shape and style.

What can I wear to an event?

A fashion dress is a fantastic option for just about any occasion! It‘s all about finding the right one for the right event. Are you looking for an elegant fashion dress to wear to a summer wedding? Look for an elegant knee-length dress in a pastel color that suits the venue or a tie-waist midi dress in a bright blue. Wear either with high heels for an elevated look. When it’s summer vacation time, a maxi dress with a flower pattern is the perfect choice. Grab a some sandals and sunglasses and you’re ready for cocktails at the bar!

Are you a working woman looking for something for the office? Then reach for a classic shift dress in black or blue. Add a fun colored belt for some extra sass and go for tights and blazer when the temperatures are cooler. Pair that look with either loafers in a complementary color or sensible heels. A polo style t-shirt dress is a cute choice for running errands on the weekend. Just throw on your sneakers and head out the door!
