How To Choose Formal Dresses To Enhance The Fuller Figure

Posted on

No matter how much you may want to, most people don't get the chance to dress like a princess very often.  So on those rare occasions when you're invited to a gala or formal event of some sort, you'll want to make the most of it and make sure you don't have any regrets later on.  However, women come in all shapes and sizes, some of which look better in certain dress types.  Here are some tips on choosing a dress to accentuate your curves and "flaunt what you've got" if you are blessed with a fuller figure.

"V is for Voluptuous"

If you're a full figured woman, you're probably well-endowed in the chest area.  To enhance your natural curves, try choosing a ball gown that has a nice V-neck, but that has a bit more coverage.  By doing this, you'll be showing off your feminine shape without sacrificing support.  V-necks look awesome on full-figured women and will have you feeling like royalty.

"Modest is Hottest"

If you're less confident about showing off your bust, don't fret!  Another style of gown that looks awesome on full-figured women is one that has a modest neckline and a decorative hem.  The hem would be a pretty focus for the dress, and it would draw attention away from your chest.  This style is cute and girly, and it is awesome for short and long formal dresses.

"A-line for All"

The A-line dress type looks awesome on everyone!  Try choosing a dress that defines your waist and flares out around your hips.  This will show off your gorgeous womanly figure and definitely make you feel like the "Belle of the ball".  Be careful though -- don't pick a gown that clings.  This can be awkward and uncomfortable, especially if you are gifted with wide hips! The A-line dress is designed to cascade over your curves and hang elegantly.

Along with these few tips, you can also try experimenting with different colors to accentuate your other gorgeous features.  In today's world, you can find almost any dress online or at your local dress shop, so don't let availability prevent you from finding the perfect gown!  No matter what type of dress you choose to adorn yourself in, remember that confidence is the best way to look and feel like a princess, no matter your body type.  Don't be afraid to venture into various sections of the store, too. You might find gorgeous formal evening dresses for juniors in the misses or women's section, for instance.
