White Dresses: Best for Your Body Type

I don't buy the cliché that crisp white dresses read demure and innocent. Instead, I think they're kind of like neon dresses. As in, they're amazing attention-getters.

Of course, that mega-wattage just makes choosing a figure-flattering style even more important. So we'd suggest picking one of the options below, each of which are tailored to different body types. From top-heavy to petite to long and lean, we've got your white dress issues nailed (as long as you can tackle achieving the perfect summer glow on your own).

Boyish

The rounded neckline, fitted waist and flouncy skirt are a curve-creating trifecta.

Top-Heavy

Not only will it let you wear your most supportive, cozy bra, it'll draw attention downwards via that contrast hem.

Petite

Instead of a tiered, gypsy maxi dress, opt for a sleek, body-skimming gown. Its columnar shape will elongate your frame instead of overwhelming you in fabric.

Small-Chested

Sweetheart necklines fake a bigger chest without any bulky, uncomfortable padding.

Apple Shaped

Nab an hourglass figure instantly with a structured peplum silhouette.

Long and Lean

If curves aren't your thing but long legs are, opt for a high-low hem that's immediately eye-catching.

Pear-Shaped

Choose a fuller, longer skirt to camouflage your thighs and hips, and highlight your natural waist instead. This deep V neckline leading to a tie-waist detail should do the trick.
