Flattering will get you everywhere (see what we did there?!). Flattering the natural shapely shape of your body, that is. By finding the party frock that best suits your figure, you’ll feel in fine form.
Dress your beautiful body in ways that highlight the features you’re damn chuffed with and downplay the disappointing (shhhh! if you don’t mention them out loud, they don’t exist!). You’ll feel confident being the centre of attention.
So grab yourself a tape measure, take a long hard look in the mirror, and give some thought to what shape you are. Then the fun part – finding the frock to rock it!
Welcome to our shiny new series of blog posts about the best gowns for your body shape. We’re starting with all you gorgeous pear-shaped gals and in the weeks to come will be sure to provide tips for every body. We’ve also invited our First Comes Love faves to show you some samples of custom-designed and ready-to-wear gowns that will work with your figure. They’re all available here in WA too. Go figure!
