Choosing an evening dress is more difficult than any man would ever think. It is not just picking something off the rack that fits. There are many factors that are considered and they must all be considered. When a woman is searching for the perfect evening dress she must consider. The days when having that full length gown is long gone.
Evening dresses have 6 different categories. Those categories are petite, pear shaped, busty, hourglass, slender, and apple shaped. Each evening dress is different from others. Depending on your particular shape will determine which type of dress is for you. Petite shape woman should get a short dress or even a formal dress with asymmetrical hemlines. This will make you seem taller, it will not overwhelm you and you will most likely wear the dress longer. Those with a slender figure want to draw eyes to your bust line or waistline for a more curvier appearance giving yourself a unique neckline with an empire waist dress. For women with a busty figure, wearing a v-neck or sweetheart necklines can really compliment your particular figure, though having straps, cap sleeves or even long sleeves can offer additional support to your bust line. Pear shaped women should choose a formal dress with a fitted top that has an a-line or even a full skirt, that is of course you are more comfortable with your figure then getting a form fitting dress may be more for you. Apple shaped women can add additional definition to your middle with an empire waist dress or perhaps you want to show off those legs, then a short dress is more for you. And if you are one of those women lucky enough to have an hourglass figure, nearly any cocktail dress, party dress or even formal gown is going to flatter you no matter what.
No matter what type of dress you choose, you also have to consider the trends in today’s world. Evening dresses and trends are very important to a woman. Being able to get the right dress for any occasion is what counts.
