The little black dress is a necessary classic in every woman’s closet. Many times we don’t know what’s the cut that fits us better to become the Fair Joker for any event That’s why we bring you this guide to find the perfect little black dress for your body type.

The first thing to know is the shape of your body. After all, it’s about balancing that form. If your shoulders are wide and protrude, we’ll have to choose something with volume on the hips to optically create the hourglass figure, which is the natural “ideal” shape of the woman’s body. (We actually think your ideal body is what you have already, but many of us feel more confident using something that leads us to the hourshape body).

A perfect LBD for every bodytype

Look at the following board an example of the best forms of dresses for each body type. Note how the overall forms of the dresses are opposite to the “base” forms of the body. We chose the geometric system for clarity (it is difficult to find ourselves a pear or an apple, and we think there’re not enough fruits for all of our bodytypes).


If your hips are wider than your shoulders, welcome to the world of triangles (I’am one). The good news is that you put a couple of flown up and you’re done. If you find any dress with a dramatic top, cling to it. You’ll be painted on any occasion.

You just have to put volume up and down alike.




Look for a dress with a lot of flight and stand out your shoulders. Don’t forget to mark the waist!
