Dressing for your body type can be tricky. But this guide is sure to assist you in determining what dress silhouette is best suited to help you radiate confidence and femininity in any setting.

Shopping can be frustrating, especially when you try on something that looks great on your favorite influencer but just doesn’t work for you. (We have an article about influencers with different body types to help with that problem.) But once you know what silhouette compliments your frame, shopping becomes a lot easier and more enjoyable.

You can certainly wear any dress that you want no matter what your body type is, but there are some styles of dresses that are sure to make you feel your personal best. Here are six pretty, flattering spring dresses for each body type – pear, petite, hourglass, rectangular, and plus-size.

Pear Shape

For you ladies with a pear shape, we have a lot of A-line midi and maxi dresses. The fitted top paired with the flair will enhance your feminine shape and compliment your proportions.
