Fashion should be fun, not humiliating, says designer Charles Chang-Lima. (Left) Julia Stone, 34, vice president of sales for two Chang-Lima collections, swears by this stretch crepe sheath ($1,395). Flatteringly draped, it makes her feel "totally unconstrained and totally pulled together." Ring, Jill Jacobson. Shoes, Stuart Weitzman. 

(Right) Appropriate for an ample bust, the satin organza dress on volunteer Hilary Harper, 29, offers upper-arm coverage. Ring, Kara Ross. Shoes, Christian Louboutin.
