Gray Print Fit-and-flare Dress

Before you embark on a quest to find the best apparel to dress an hour-glass figure, take the time to congratulate yourself for being blessed with a figure that most people crave for. It’s not easy to land the curvy hour-glass figure with a well-proportioned bottom and top. This figure is complemented with a natural symmetry that makes it easy and also quite tricky to dress.

People with this body-type have an almost equal proportion of the shoulder and the hip, which is well balanced by a slender waist. So, pretty much any dress will suit you, but opt for the ones that will totally bring out your curves like sheath dresses. Hourglass figures should stay away from dresses with ruffles or fringes at the waist as it tends to add bulk to that region and since you already have a well-proportioned body, you don’t need that extra bulk. You can wear shirtdresses and tie-waist dresses, but make sure they don’t form any kind of ruffles or pleats at the waist! You can also wear fit-and-flare dresses; they come with a flared waist that can highlight your curves and put you in the spotlight for all the right reasons.

Hour-glass figures need to stay away from figure-swallowing large frumpy dresses as they can pile on the pounds; which means you shouldn’t choose anything with a loose-fitting or flowy silhouette. But if you’re bored with form-fitting outfits and need something with a free-fit, pick maxis or trapeze dresses and accent them with a large belt (don’t use small belts as they can create a disproportionate look).

For work, you can stock-up on pencil skirts and well-fitting blouses and tops as these complement your figure to the best level. Pant-suits are not the best options for you as they generally tend to put your derriere on display, but you can opt for pants with flared legs or team up your skinny pants with long jackets that hit your bottom.
