But in order for a tight dress to look harmoniously at you, it should be chosen with all care, taking into account the features and type of figure. This will help hide its flaws and highlight its merits, showing you in the best possible light.

How to choose a tight dress?

Choosing a dress on the figure "pear"

If you have narrow shoulders but wide hips, then you are the owner of a pear-type figure. In your case, you need to focus on the details that visually smooth the difference in the volumes of the shoulders and hips. To do this, choose dresses with a V-neck or an American armhole. Also for this purpose you can use very wide straps. If you are going to an incendiary party, then on this type of figure it will be wonderful to look at a dress with a corset. Or pay your attention to the tight dress with a light top and a dark skirt that visually narrows your hips. What else can you wear? For example, a win-win option - dresses with a low waist or sewn from soft and lightweight fabrics.

Girls with this type of figure are contraindicated in dresses on thin straps and with a semicircular neckline. It is also not advised to buy a dress with a high waist, transverse patterns and lines located on the hips, as in this case they will look even wider than they actually are.

Hourglass figure

The owners of the enviable “hourglass” figure, when the parameters of the chest and hips are the same, but the waist is very narrow, will give a more spectacular dress with a skirt year. Or outfit, supplemented by some belt. If you strive to give your image a seductiveness, you will suit the option with a deep neckline without straps. Girls with such a figure and thin legs will face a short tight dress. And if you choose a material for sewing such a dress, it is best to give preference to elastic and knitted fabrics.

But even for such an enviable figure there are taboos. It is superimposed on horizontal striped dresses with a large or geometric pattern. And if you have small breasts, then a cutout with a boat would be a bad choice and also subject to a categorical ban.

"An Apple"

This is the type of figure when the chest, waist and hips have an equal volume, but at the same time they are not without smooth lines. Women with such shapes are best suited dress with a slanting neckline or high waist, complete with a belt. It can also be bright monochrome tight dresses (photos of some models are presented in the article). A perfect decision what to wear will be sleeveless sheath dresses or corsets. Girls with an "apple" figure should be given special attention to corrective underwear, which will hide some of the flaws in the figure. An important role is played by flashy decorations that would harmoniously combine with the outfit. It is worth buying dresses sewn from fine fabric with a large pattern.


The shape of the "rectangle" is characterized by the same parameters of the chest, waist and hips. And because its owners should focus on various cuts: oval, square, etc. Or supplemented with ruffles, sequins and other decorative details. For girls with such a figure fit beautiful tight dresses with large and colorful prints. Particular attention should be paid to the fabric from which the clothes are sewn - it must be very rigid.

In this case also has its limitations. For example, such as dresses with round necklines, on narrow straps. The fabric should not be too elastic, and the belt should not be pulled down the waist.


If your type of a “triangle” figure - your shoulders are much wider than your hips, then you should focus on such cuts as V-shaped, oval or heart-shaped, you should also not forget about the American armhole and very high neckline. Special attention is given to the raglan sleeves, as well as tight-fitting dress with a low waist, the length of which reaches to the knees. With the “triangle” figure, it is better to choose outfits where the dark top is combined with a light skirt or there are horizontal stripes. Much depends on the choice of fabric, which is used for sewing attire. Here it is necessary to give preference to such matters as wool, thick silk or hard cotton.

For women with a similar type of figure under the strictest ban, short sleeves, wide collars and cutouts in the shape of a boat. Soft and thin fabrics are undesirable for the upper part of the dress.

Choosing dress length

An important factor in choosing the right length of dress is the growth of the girl. For the owner of high growth, and if she also has an excellent figure, you need to add a long tight dress to your wardrobe. Especially, if it is with a large cut or completely exposes the back. Mandatory condition for wearing such a dress - its combination with high-heeled shoes.

Owners of medium height are perfect short outfits. And the choice of shoes to combine with them is wider and more diverse. Not only high-heeled shoes are suitable, you can wear a dress with shoes on wedges or ballet shoes.

Girls of small stature should pay close attention to the outfits with a length slightly above the knees. Shoes should be chosen exclusively with high heels. Because it will visually stretch and make a more slender silhouette.

Choosing a dress color

Another equally important factor in choosing a dress is color. Here you should take into account what color your skin, hair and eye color. After all, completely different shades may be suitable for a particular tone.

So, light-skinned blondes with light-colored eyes should choose soft and delicate shades for a dress. And for owners of a beautiful tan a striking and bright tight dress will be an excellent solution.

The outfits of bright red or pastel shades are harmoniously combined with the cool hair color of blondes. A golden, honey or “champagne” is necessary to choose dresses exclusively motley colors. Almost all owners of blond hair face pink shades.

Dark-eyed brunettes with pale skin, it is preferable to wear dresses of delicate colors (light yellow or cream, for example). For dark eyes or tanned, with brown, gray or green eyes suitable colors such as yellow, poisonous green, chocolate. Also, do not bypass the side and classic black tight dress. And finally, red is a universal color for brunettes, but it is worth remembering that its shades are chosen according to the skin tone.

Brown-haired and brown-eyed

Brown-haired and fair-skinned can choose from such tones as yellow, orange, purple. And for greater effect, choose a combination of black and red shades. If the hair has the color of chocolate, feel free to choose dresses of pink, red or white colors. If you have dark skin, emphasize golden and brown, and, of course, blue shades.

Brown-eyed brown-haired should prefer brown and orange colors. Owners of green eyes will face dresses of lilac and purple hues. Also, they should pay attention to the gold and silver colors. And blue-eyed brown-haired women will suit bronze and blue tones.

But there are two classic universal colors - black and white. And the latter is relevant for all girls. Since tight wedding dresses are sewn individually for each type of figure, they almost always have a traditional white color.


In conclusion, you can say a little about accessories and additions to the dress, such as jackets, jackets or cardigans. Do not neglect corrective underwear, as it will help to hide the stomach and the folds on the sides and back. To give brightness to the image, pick up the earrings and jewelry on the neck. A shoe and handbag should be chosen based on the color and length of the dress.
