Botanical Cami Midi Dress

$115

Oasis

Body Type: Pear-Shaped

Look for styles that have a fitted bodice and a pleated (or full) skirt so that your waist is the focal point.

Petites Floral Check Tee Dress

$61

Miss Selfridge

Body Type: Pint-Sized

Short, printed shift dresses with high necklines look great on petite figures. Too many straps and whistles, combined with a floral print, run the risk of overwhelming a smaller frame.

Spring Swing Dress

$174

Stop Staring

Body Type: Ample Bust

Dresses with a structured bodice offer support without sacrficing style, while thin straps keep the silhouette from feeling matronly.

Moody Floral Dress

$180

Coast London

Body Type: Arm-Conscious

A dress with three-quarter-length sleeves is seductive when rendered in a body-hugging silhouette.

Asymmetrical Prom Dress

$110

Topshop

Body Type: Boyish

Add softness to your frame with a fluttery, tiered mini-dress. The subtle sweet-heart neckline and asymmetrical skirt add volume where it's needed.

Blue Floral Maxi Dress

Body Type: Tall

Taller figures look fantastic in a longer length, just make sure that the dress has a defined waist and a playful detail, like this backless dress.
