Choose the right dress for your Body type

There is a substantial variation in the human traits both visible and non visible. It is not necessary that the variances are trivial or vital but these differences definitely make a huge mark! Humans have different physical appearances which are made on the basis of height, weight, hair colour, eye colour, skin colour, build etc. In fact, it is so important to be different that one can just not imagine a life living amongst identical people.

This physical difference is also imperative in choosing our wardrobes. Ever wondered why a particular dress fits and suits you better than another or vice versa? This happens because a particular dress is apt for a specific body type. We all have different body types, proportions and assets that we should accentuate so that it creates a camouflage to hide our flaws.

Dressing according to your body type gives you an upper edge in fashion. It’s good to experiment various styles to suit your looks but it must not be done at the cost of your comfort. Choosing a dress according to your height is great but don’t ignore your body type or it can turn to be a disaster. A dress will only fit best if it is apt for a body type.
