When you shop for dresses, certain styles and shapes look better on you. It’s good to know this so you can buy the most flattering silhouette! This guide from Nordstrom is a good one.
For instance, I have an pear shape (also known as the “d” shape), which means I am larger on the bottom and very small on the top. I look for dresses that emphasize my waist and have a scoop neck that make my arms and shoulders wider. Narrow turtlenecks or very high necklines do not look good on me.
