They are feminine, practical and simply beautiful: we love dresses in all variations. Unfortunately, not every dress shape fits every figure. We explain to you what makes the different types of clothes and which ones you can wear best.

The right dress form for your figure

The A-LINE: the figure flatterer

The dress shape of the A-line widens from the shoulders to the hem and resembles - hence the name - an A. The "Fit and Flare" dress with a tight top, straight waist seam and flared skirt is also a variant of this type of dress. The A-line comes from the pen of Christian Dior, who presented it in 1955 as the "calyx line" in his collection.

The dress cut of the A-line is an absolute figure flatterer and for suitable for every figure type. With the hourglass type, the female silhouette is properly staged, while the cut for women with the androgynous tube type visually conjures up more curves. Any problem areas around the hips and thighs are optimally concealed by this type of dress. It is also beneficial for large busts and broad shoulders: it brings the proportions into balance.

The WRAP DRESS aka "Curve Wonder"

The wrap dress - which has its roots in household clothing - is comfortable, feminine and, contrary to its origins, very stylish. There are no fasteners: the wrap dress is simply attached to the waist with a belt. Often, however, this is not even necessary: ​​With many models, the wrap-around look is only simulated. The annoying tying is no longer necessary, but the wrapping effect with all its advantages is retained.

This type of dress is especially suitable for androgynous women (figure type H) and those with a Hourglass figure. With the former, the wrap dress conjures up feminine curves, while with the latter it optimally stages the figure. The V-neckline created by the wrapping technique visually stretches the upper body, which means that the dress is also suitable for Women with a large bust (figure type O) or a small tummy is very beneficial. Only women with broad shoulders or broad hips should be careful with wrap dresses that they do not emphasize these proportions.

All-round talent SHIRT CLOTH DRESS

We owe the invention of the shirt dress in 1916 to Coco Chanel. This type of dress combines elements from women’s and men’s fashion: the classic men’s shirt is complemented by a skirt. The sporty, casual blouse dress is usually tied at the waist with a belt that creates a feminine silhouette. In addition, this type of dress is a good basis for exciting layered looks.

In conjunction with a shaping waist belt, every figurtyp wear this form of dress well. Wide hips and shoulders are proportionally balanced by the straight cut. An unbuttoned collar visually lengthens your upper body - ideal for Women with a large bust. However, caution is advised with models without a belt: Although they hide problem areas around the stomach, buttocks and thighs, curvy women and tube types quickly make them look "boxy".

The ETUIKLEID: Classic with a limitation

Elegant, elegant, shift dress: this type of dress is the symbol of classic fashion. The shift dress, which became famous in the 1920s, traditionally has a very figure-hugging cut, knee-length and without sleeves. Nowadays, however, there is a large selection of different models. The shift dress is often confused with the shift dress. However, this type of dress does not have a waist like the shift dress and is cut more loosely overall.

This form of dress is facing especially women with hourglass figures very good. But also androgynous figure types as well as women with apple figures benefit from this dress cut. The shift dress, on the other hand, has a disadvantageous effect on apple types and women with a small belly (figure type O): This is emphasized here. If you have broad shoulders, go for a sheath dress with sleeves: This balances out the proportions better. As a matter of principle, shift clothes should not be too tight: this is not only uncomfortable, but in case of doubt it is also bulky.

The focus upwards: the EMPIRE DRESS

In contrast to most other types of dress, the empire dress does not focus on the waist but on the cleavage. This dress cut is characterized by a deeply cut chest area with a direct gathering underneath. From the chest area, the empire dress falls loosely over the hips and bottom to the knees or ankles. The babydoll dress type has a very similar cut: however, dresses of this type are usually much shorter and more playful.

The empire dress is a great cut for everyone Women with a small bust: It is brought into shape and optimally staged. Otherwise, this type of dress is a figure flatterer and, with the exception of the orange type, suitable for every figure. The loosely falling skirt conceals small tummies as well as strong thighs and hips. Women with broad shoulders should also pay attention to wide straps or sleeves and avoid halter models.
