Summer dresses: The right cut for every figure
A summer dress is the perfect outfit for very hot days. Whether on the beach, at a garden party or at the beach club – there are many occasions to wear a breezy dress. But here too, as so often, it depends on the right cut. Not every figure fits in every summer dress. Small or plump women should pay attention to a few things when choosing clothes to best support the proportions.
Summer dress: Which cut for chubby women?
In women with a slightly stronger figure, the upper arms and the bosom are usually a bit fuller. When choosing a dress you should follow a few styling tips and make sure that the fashion conceals problem areas rather than stresses. For strong upper arms always choose a summer dress with flared and wide sleeves. Spaghetti straps are as taboo here as tight-fitting sleeves. Alternatively, you can put a fashionable cloth or a denim or cardigan around the shoulders instead of the sleeves.
Women with slightly broader hips look good in Empire-style dresses: the dress fits snugly around the chest, and below the chest, it gently swings around the body. With a wide belt at the top of the waist, you can also make this look out of yet another dress. Even A-shaped dresses or wrap dresses are great for hiding a few extra pounds.
You can hide pounds with plain-colored clothing
The fabrics should flow as softly as possible and nestle against the body without being restrictive – tight-fitting fabrics are taboo. To conceal a few pounds, plain dresses and opaque, opaque materials are suitable. Large patterns are less suitable for chubby women. For two-tone dresses, make sure the skirt is darker than the top of the dress.
What to wear with wide hips or broad shoulders?
If you have strong hips, you should emphasize your upper body. Whether ruffles, patterns or belts – is allowed, which directs the eye upwards. On sequins and draping in the hip area you should rather do without. Even flared dresses are flattering.
The opposite is true for relatively broad shoulders and narrow hips: Here you should avoid an additional emphasis on the upper body. Also on the pole should stay halter dresses and dresses with a boat neckline. Peplum in the hip area help to balance the proportions.
The matching section
Women with a very big breast should choose a dress with a lace or a carré neckline, as this is the perfect way to shape and highlight the neckline. A V-neck stretches the upper body. Shirt blouses or sheath dresses are optimal. You should be wary of patterns that can deform and stretch badly in the chest area. The portal “gofeminin.de” advises against wearing fabrics such as velvet or satin. Women with hourglasses can skilfully emphasize their curves with waistbands and flared skirts.
Wickelkleidern can conjure up curves
For a smaller bosom, dresses with ruffles or small applications such as ruffles or pearls at chest height are suitable. Even dresses with V or waterfall neckline are flattering. Generally speaking: bright tones make the bosom appear larger.
Also for the androgynous type with a straight figure dresses are recommended that conjure curves. It’s best to choose wrap dresses that form a waist and keep your fingers off shapeless dresses.
Summer dresses for small and large women
If you are very small, you should always wear the dress a bit shorter – a hand’s width above the knee is optimal, as floor-length dresses visually shorten even more. If the seams of the clothing are vertical or have longitudinal stripes, this additionally stretches. Again, Empire style dresses are recommended as they visually lengthen the legs. “Brigitte-woman.de” recommends feminine fabrics such as lace and silk to small, petite women.
Almost every cut is made for tall, slim women: maxi dresses, eye-catching patterns, eye-catching colors. Cross stripes and wide waistbands visually interrupt the silhouette. From Empire dresses is not recommended, as they shorten the upper body optically.
