With summer just around the corner and lots of events coming up isn’t it about time you started dress shopping? So, instead of picking a dress that you like on the hanger, even though on you it doesn’t look quite the same, how about getting a dress that totally suits your body shape? Take a look at how the stars have dressed to suit their body shape and see if you can create the same look whatever your size!


Kristen Connolly knows how to flatter her fuller figure with this green maxi wrap dress. The wrap dress is perfect for curvy ladies that want to flatter and still look sexy.

Who said you shouldn’t wear horizontal stripes? As long as the stripes are balanced out by stripes in alternating directions like Tulisa’s dress this look works and this kind of dress is great for those that love their legs but hate their arms with the 3/4 length sleeves.


A-Line dresses are great for pear shaped ladies who want to flatter their bigger hips by emphasising their small waist. Take a tip from Marion Cotillard and go for an embellished dress which shows off your figure.

Petite ladies can go for mini dresses and big heels to elongate their legs, just like Lydia Bright has in this colour-block dress. The contrasting colours draw your eyes upwards and the darker colour on the bottom flatters her hips.

Ladies with a bigger bust should re-create Rosario Dawson’s outfit, she has added a belt to create a smaller waist and her longer sleeves flatter her arms, the length of the dress also helps distract from the chest area.

Rebecca Minkoff knows how to dress her figure by adding curves with the clever panelling on this dress, the colour and pattern also make her figure look fuller with the middle panel creating curves where they were lacking. Boyish shapes should remember it’s all about creating the illusion of curves.
