A summer dress for everyone!

With the fine weather ahead, I challenged myself to find a nice dress for every woman’s figure. And if you’re not that into the ones I’m suggesting, no worries! Just follow my advice for your figure type and you’ll find a winner for sure…

Bustier dress is just perfect for women whose hips are broader than their shoulders (the pear body type). While highlighting your upper body, it offers some cover under its balloon skirt and has a real slimming effect. Tristan $145


With its large flower strategically placed at hip level, you’ll cut a fine figure if your shoulders are broader than your hips (the inverted triangle body type). First of all, the pattern below will draw looks. And the bell sleeves will slim your arms. Tristan $135


I like the relaxed, nautical feel of this dress. Again, perfect for you inverted triangles. The raglan sleeves will soften your shoulders, the drawstring will slim your waist and the horizontal lines will add to your lower body. Dynamite $44.95


If you’re a bit bigger around the belly, you’ve got an apple body type. With this wrap dress, you have the option of doing up your dress at the point where you’re slimmest, probably just under your bust. What’s more, the print will get the looks and draw them away from those (darling) love handles… Tristan $125


What’s more feminine than a balloon skirt. It’s perfect for adding curves where required.  This dress will make you look like you have a nice, well-defined waistline even if you’ve got more of a rectangular body shape. H&M $69.99


This very flowy dress will do you just fine if you’re smallish with a slender figure. Its looser fit and satiny material adds that sensual touch! Forever 21 $34.90


Women whose shoulders and hips are the same width can try all of the above styles (lucky you!). But here are a couple of extra models that are particularly flattering on an hourglass figure. This sheath dress, really in at the waist, highlights your curves. Simons $78. On the other hand, this button-front tunic gives you a chic but casual look. So comfy! H&M $29.99
