Apple Silhouette

Apple: With your broader shoulders, fuller bust and waist, and shapely thighs and legs, you may be envied for your slender arms and hips.

To make the most of your lovely apple silhouette, focus on the vertical. Choose an empire gown or a style that cinches at the smallest point on your waistline, then flares into a classic A-line skirt that’s either structured or flowing. You'll love a fitted bodice with texture and detail. Add ruching, embellished lace, or a plunging neckline as deep as you dare, and you'll find this classic silhouette both flattering and easy to wear.

Hourglass Silhouette

Hourglass: You're round and curvy with a well-defined waist, full hips, and generous shapely thighs. Your characteristic figure is the subject of many sculptures and paintings.

Flaunt your curves with a glamorous, figure-hugging silhouette. Choose a sultry mermaid or fit-and-flare gown with a bodice that hugs your body and flares below the hips mid-thigh, with a contoured cut to further emphasize your figure. Just about any neckline you choose will flatter your shape and make you feel your most beautiful.

Triangle Silhouette

Triangle: With your relatively slimmer upper torso, narrower shoulders and a proportional bust, your curvaceous hips, waist, and thighs are divinely feminine.

Emphasize your assets with an A-line gown. A bodice with ruching or embellishments will draw attention upward while the skirt may be either flowing or structured. Or choose a slim sheath, either minimalist chic, or rich with dazzling detailed embellishments. Both silhouettes are classic and timeless, and their long lines with lengthen and flatter your figure.

Rectangle Silhouette

Rectangle: Your narrower hips, subtle bust and less-defined waistline create a streamlined figure that is the envy of many.

Create curves just where you want them with either of two classic gowns. A sheath, cut on the bias with a diagonal or gently curved side seam will give you a sexy silhouette, and a bodice with shirring, ruching, embroidery or stunning beading will compliment your bust line. If you prefer an enchanting and regal silhouette, a fairy tale ball gown with its signature bell shape skirt will make you feel as if you're floating down the aisle.

Inverted Triangle Silhouette

Inverted Triangle With your broader shoulders, ample bust, slim hips, and subtle waist, you may be envied for your shapely legs and athletic build.

You'll shine in an elegant strapless gown, or a wedding dress with sheer illusion over a scoop or sweetheart neckline. You could also choose a captivating ball gown with a generous skirt made of tulle or opulent organza, which will give you a curvier look and a decidedly more regal silhouette.
