Look Your Best This Fall:
The Best Dress For Your Body
If You're Curvy
Semifitted styles that softly follow your curves and show off your waistline, like Beyonce's wrap dress. Other flattering silhouettes include sheaths, belted shirtdresses and full skirts.
Anything either too loose or too fitted (including styles that cinch the waist too tightly) and high necklines.
Choose medium-weight knits and soft fabrics that drape well.
Opt for lower necklines found in wrap, off-the-shoulder or strapless styles.
For a slimming effect, show some skin: Expose legs or cleavage.
