Not every dress suits on a person and not a particular dress suits on everyone and that’s mere because everybody has a different body shape. It is essential to understand your body shape as then only you will get your dresses right.
How to determine your body shape- Measurements
Take a cloth tape rather than a metallic one. Hold it at a point where it slips but will give the correct measurements.
Start from the tip of one shoulder and take it around the other shoulder to the end like it meets the tip of the same shoulder. It will help you get the measurements of the widest point of the shoulder.
Stand straight. Start from the fullest of the bust and wrap it around under the shoulders to take it back to the same point. This will give you the measurements.
Do not pull in your stomach, just stand straight. Start from the point above your belly button and below your ribcage. Then, turn it around the stomach and bring it back to the same point.
You need to do this in front of a mirror. Keep one end at one side of the hip and from the back, bring it to the same point. This will give you the perfect circumference of your hips to provide you with the accurate measurements.
