NOTE: The graphic on screen in the video is incorrect. The correct order of models/outfits seen in the video are as follows:

1. Short Legs/Petite

Wyatt

$111.30

www.bluefly.com

Look for dresses that hit above the knee or shorter.

TIP: Invest in platform heels, they will elongate your legs and make you stand taller.

2. Apple Shape

NUE by Shani

$280

www.edressme.com

If you have a thicker middle, skip anything empire waist, Textured fabrics are a great choice.

TIP: Look for a dress with built in shape wear that will give you instant confidence.

3. Carrot Shape

Maggy London Brocade Party Dress

$158

www.maggylondon.com

If you have long legs and a broader top, I love a sexy halter style with a bias cut or flair at bottom that will work to balance out your torso.

4. Curvy Shape

NUE by Shani

$260

www.edressme.com

Show off an hourglass shape with dresses that with color blocking.

TIP: With these form fitting styles, everything shows so now is the time to invest in a seamless bra that fits perfectly and keeps everything in place.

5. Boyish shape

Maggy London Dress

$138

www.maggylondon.com

Look for structured waist seams and darts that will give your body more of a defined shape.

TIP: All over patterns work great for this body shape.

6. PEAR SHAPE

Wyatt

$90.30

www.bluefly.com

Sexy lace details at the arms bring your eye up. Dresses that are fit and flared on bottom are super flattering on this body type and bring less attention to fuller hips.
