Once reviewed and recognized both by his references as visually types, we are going to give some recommendations according to your figure type:


· If you’re low, you should avoid the shoulder straps and bulky sleeves.

The tail of the dress should preferably be short.

· If you’re tall and thin, the pronounced cleavages and wavy sleeves would be right for you.

· If you are high but sturdily, it would be better going without embroidery and simple lines to Stylize your figure. Avoid cross straps, shoulder straps and skirts with long flight.

Wide hip

For broad hips, a double fold with wide and smooth skirt corset will help to hide a little.

· If you have wide hip but small waist, your best choice would be the embroidery at the waist and smooth skirts with flight.

· If you’re not acted, opt for cutting Empire with languid fall skirt.

Low waist

· As already mentioned in the previous point, cutting Empire would be the best for this type of figures, as well as the corset double fold, which will give us the waist.

If the size of your dress is short, skirt should start a few centimeters below the waist.

Shoulders narrow/wide back

· If we speak of a figure with narrow shoulders, low bust and wide hips, best would be to balance it by putting all the details at the top of the dress as: corsets, embellishments on shoulders, voluminous sleeves and neckline of choice in “V” or drooping shoulders.

· If you have a back well cared, why not test to show it off with a good cleavage. That will also help you to balance your figure!

· If on the other hand, your case is wide back, it plays with a wide skirt and a simple sleeveless dress.


· If you have little bust, best would be to have all the details (drapes, embroidered, brightness, etc.) in the waist to give volume. In addition, the halter neck would also be very good if it is not indented

· If your bust is large, you should avoid pronounced necklines (“V” they give depth and hidden a large bust).

Dress should focus its details in the skirt and let the smooth waist.

The more appropriate court would be the Princess.


· If your case is a bust and wide hips, as well as having a well defined waist, tight dresses emphasized your body.
