Finding a good fitting sundress
Finding a good fitting sundress is no easy feat. The better the fit of the dress the more you will wear it. The Halogen dress I am wearing is pretty old, the pattern & cut seems very 60's house wife to me. Every year I try it on and it fits like a glove, and as a result it has become a classic staple I wear at least once every summer. The key to finding any dress work is the cut, and I would encourage you to have summer dress (or anything for that matter) altered to fit your body. Below are some basic sundress guide-lines to think about when shopping for your body type.
Drawstring dresses- look best when worn loose slimmer sized hips... works really great on boy shaped bodies Strapless dresses- work best on small busts Wrap Dress- works wonders on a curvy body (mostly because they are belted & pulled in all the right places, and v-neck) Tank/ T-shirt Dresses- work great on an athletic body Slip Dress- looks great on petite body frame Empire waist- tends to work great on a tall body frame/ for small busts Halter dress- works well with busty ladies Shirt dress- is always my favorite because it is timeless, and works well with most body types
So what is the true secret of finding a good fitting sundress? Finding the fit that works with your body type. It's that simple. If you have trouble finding clothes to fit you right, you need to visit a tailor. The store... the brand.... how much it is.... doesn't matter if it doesn't fit right.
