What body shape are you?

What body shape are you?

At Wowprom we pride ourselves on helping girls (and women) choose the right dress for them. When you are starting to look at dresses it can be helpful to know what dress will suit your body shape. It’s all very well dreaming of a dress with a thigh split or plunging neckline but it can be disappointing to try it on and find it looks nothing like you imagined!

Let’s start by looking at the 6 basic body shapes so that you can decide what shape you are and have an idea of what style will suit you. Remember that women come in all shapes and sizes and there is no such thing as the perfect body! It’s all about accentuating your good bits and hiding the not so good ones so that when you attend your special event you know that you are looking your best.

Once you have worked out what shape you are, we can advise on which dress styles will suit you best.

We have all heard of the hourglass figure – who wouldn’t want to look like Marilyn Monroe. Hourglass women have hips and bust in proportion and their upper body balances out their leg length. Think Kim Kardashian!
