Fab Body Guide: Spring Dresses For All Bods

In this week's Life & Style they offer a really helpful breakdown on how to wear this season's hottest item: the dress. They show several examples of dress styles to lift busts, hide hips, accentuate curves and tame tummies. With all the voluminous styles of late, I realize those with un-model-like bods are struggling to pull off these looks. I think we all can learn from this breakdown and I have one to suggest too!

To see my additional reco,

This Ella Moss Newport Flutter Sleeve Dress, $104, also comes in green/blue and the banded neck helps to conceal a disproportionate large bust. In general, banded-neck dresses are good for women with larger busts and it flatters the neck area as the dress drapes off the band therefore creating a loose silhouette throughout. But make sure your banded neckline hits above your bust, rather than along. Drapey fabrics like jersey or silk also ensure the dress hangs just so. Hope this helps!

This is all great information! I bought this one dress that was jersey. It looked great in the photo but when I put it on I didn't feel great or comfortable. Some of this was problably why! Good to know!

I heart my 3/4 length sleeve black wrap jersey dress. It is such a life saver for work when I want to be sassy and casual at the same time. Totally a fashion must have!

I like the whole dress thing, but I don't like it when they make you look 7 months prego. At least if you do make dress purchases this season, you can keep them and whip them back out for maternity clothes :P I know... they aren't all cut that way.

I have the same problem, reeveske - unless I'm wearing heels, the dresses make me look like a 12 year old girl, and I'm 23!!! Also, I'd love a black wrap dress, but it's not very springy and I read some where that *sob* wrap dresses are on their way out??? Say it isn't so!!!

Okay see I have the opposite problem-not that I'm complaining! I'm petite so I swim in every new dress trend, it's like the dress is wearing me, not the other way around. I want to buy some of these but I just cant without looking ridiculous.
