So, what’s an hourglass shape, anyway?
You’d describe your body as curvy
You have a well-defined waist
Your bust and hip measurements are roughly even
You may have fuller bust, hips, and thighs
You know when you’re an hourglass body shape, and so will the others. This body type is the most balanced of all with a proportionate top and bottom part of the body with a well-defined waistline. So when you look for dresses, choose the ones that do just that for you. It is a body to die for, so flaunt it and in the right way.
How To Choose Evening Dress For An Hourglass Body Shape?
Since you have a well-balanced figure, your formal dresses or evening dresses should do the same as well. The dress should sit well at the right curves and follow the outline of these curves. Make the most of it, because not everybody has this!
The key to dressing an hourglass shape is two-fold: 1) define your waist and 2) show off your lovely lady shape. You have amazing curves—it’s time to embrace them in body-hugging silhouettes and pieces that hit you in all the right places.
The hourglass figure was made for formal dresses. Channel your inner Monroe and reach for iconic silhouettes like the wrap dress or the fit & flare. These shapes will naturally play up your best features.
If you’re looking for something new, an empire silhouette also works wonders. Why? They highlight your natural waist.
Best Clothes For Hourglass Shaped Body?
Dresses that cinch at the waist will be your best fit. V or plunge V and sweetheart necklines help you flaunt your upper body. To flaunt your waistline, go with a belt at your natural waistline or below the belly button—either way it only looks great. A-line dresses or similar cuts take care of working on the lower part of the body and needless to say; body hugging dresses are your thing, because, why not?
