Shopping for dresses can be fun, but also frustrating. How do you find the perfect dresses for you—the ones that fit your body and make you feel amazing? Luckily at Dia & Co we get it. We offer plus size dresses in sizes 10-32 for this very reason. We also offer personal styling, too, in case you want a customized box of dresses for every occasion.
There are so many dresses, from casual skater dresses to sleek cocktail dresses that will look amazing on you. For reference, pear shapes typically have a smaller bust with narrower shoulders, while your bottom (hips, butt and thighs) will be wider than your torso. When choosing dresses for your pear shape, opt for A-line, wrap, and fit-and-flare silhouettes. Also look for dresses with eye-catching necklines, like off-the-shoulder or square, that add balance to your overall look. These styles also make it easy to swap in a fun necklace or long earrings for a dressier take on more casual styles.
If you have a full bust, full hips and a defined waist, then you’ll want to find dresses that compliment your curves while accentuating your waist. Think: bodycon dresses, wrap dresses and fit-and-flare silhouettes. Depending on your bust size, you may opt for full coverage but have an off-the-shoulder moment or maybe a scoop-back for a super on-trend look. The same goes for your bottom—it’s always about what makes you feel the most comfortable! Maxi dresses are totally within your wheelhouse, especially slip dresses and wrap dresses. Cropped jean jackets or moto style layers would look great over any of these styles, too.
For reference, apple-shaped people have long, slender arms and legs with slightly narrow shoulders and hips. They also tend to have a full bust and wide torso. Opt for flowy silhouettes, like boho dresses and babydoll style silhouettes. Dresses with volume in the sleeves (like puffed, flared, or ruched styling) are on-trend and will look super cute on you, too.
Great question. Inverted triangle shapes (or, as we like to call them, diamond shapes) tend to have a broader shoulder width and smaller hips, thighs and butt. Similar to the pear shape and rectangle shape, inverted triangle shapes can rock many different styles. However, you’ll maximize your effect if you lean into voluminous styles around your hips. Babydoll, empire waist and skater dresses are all great options for an inverted silhouette. When it comes to your sleeves, keep it sleek—but a little bell sleeve will also look absolutely stunning on you.
If you have a rectangle shape, your torso is about equal in width from your shoulders to your bottom. The great thing about wearing dresses with a rectangle shape is that you just need to look for dresses with a defined waistline. Wrap dresses, fit-and-flare silhouettes (especially with puffy sleeves) and structured A-line dresses will look fab on you. And don’t forget to play with lengths! Whether you’re in a flirty mini skater dress or dialing up the drama in a ballgown, have fun with drawing attention to your favorite parts of your body.
If you’re on the shorter side, play with proportions. Opt for mini skirts or midi lengths. If you want to rock a maxi, you might have to get it hemmed, but go for it! Remember that platforms are also a great option for elongating your legs while you wear your favorite dresses. If you’re super tall, embrace on-trend boho maxi dresses and play with a variety of sun dresses and long flowing layers as the seasons change.
Especially in warmer weather months, there is definitely a need to ramp up the amount of dresses in your wardrobe—and we can help!
