If you have a pear shaped body then you need to emphasize your upper body with eye-catching detail such as using a Halter-neck dress which would help balance your slim shoulders and wide hips. In order to show off your slender shoulders, you could go for strapless ones as they would draw the attention away from your hips. You could also go for low-plunging neck-lines as they would help in accentuating the upper body and would draw attention to your face and chest. Do try to stay away from attires that are too tight around the hips. Do go for block colored evening gowns and try adding to the look by accessorizing them with a belt. Stay away from large prints as they come with a risk of adding more bulk to your hips and so instead you could try out a two toned dress with light colors above the waist and a little darker tone below the waist giving out a balanced look to your body.

If you are tall and slim then you can experiment with any composition, from patterns and prints. They can also go for bold and neutral tones, to various designs. It is best suited for them to go for gowns which are lengthy and hide the feet as a result they flatten their figure. If you would want to look shorter than you could go for horizontal details. In case you are short or petite then you could go for long skirt as the length would trick and give an illusion of heightened silhouette. It is advisable to avoid large prints and heavy models instead you could go for lightweight fit and subtle sleek outfits. You could also try to match the long gown with tight blouse with the same tone. It is advisable to go for gowns which are a few inches below the ankle to enhance much higher look. Heels can also be used as a means to add some height. If you have an H shape or lack a defined waist then it advisable to go for straighter shapes that follow the lines of your body and as a result look the most flattering.
