This summer find the best dress for your body type with our summer ready styles that flatter and flaunt, whatever your size and shape
If You Need to Hide a Tummy
Fabulous for "I-feel-fat" days, this breezy body skimmer ($138, Muse Apparel) helps hide a protruding pooch. The drawstring detail suits any size of stomach, and the cinching creates a waist for anyone with an apple shape. Bonus: The refreshing orangeade shade proves that dressing slim doesn't have to mean defaulting to black.
Beware of wide belts in high-contrast colours — they visually chop you in half, showcasing your stomach in the worst way. Smarter: a thin belt in a hue similar to that of your dress.
Choose dresses with ornamentation on top (like the flap pockets here) to de-emphasize your middle.
Accessorize with statement scarves or necklaces to direct focus to the face.
