Dresses That Flatter Your Figure
Is your body type more suited for an A-line dress or an empire waistline? Bradley Bayou offers a straight-forward guide to dress shopping from his book The Science of Sexy.
A-line dress
A-line
This dress steadily tapers out from the waist to the hem in strong, straight lines, revealing a silhouette like the edges of a capital letter A.

This is a very forgiving silhouette and can work for all shapes, depending on the neckline. For instance, with a halter top, this is perfect for a triangle; however, with a wide set straps, it's perfect for an inverted triangle.
