Fuller at the hips and rear, and smaller on top.

Dresses with fitted open-neck or strapless tops enhance your upper body and draw the eye up, while full or A-line skirts help hide wider hips. An Empire waist marks the smallest point of your figure, distracting from everything else.

Curvaceous, with full bust, defined waist and full hips.

Narrowest point is above the natural waist, at the ribs.

Empire waists draw the eye up, taking attention away from the middle and allowing a looser fit. Neck details also bring the focus up, while full skirts and A-line shifts create an hourglass illusion.

Bust measurement is fuller than hips and rear.

Classic V-neck wraps and halter styles draw the eye downward for a slimming effect. A-line styles, full skirts and details at the hem help balance out the bottom half.
