Although you might think there isn't one dress that suits every single body type, there are a number of styles that look good on every figure—whether you're a size 6 or a size 16. We all know that black is considered to be the most forgiving colour, but that doesn't mean you don't have to stick to it. Keep scrolling to see our guide to the five most slimming dresses that always celebrate your shape. Trust us—these dresses suit everyone we know.
1. Belted Dresses
This one is obvious; a belt draws attention to your waist and always makes for a nice silhouette. A roomier style is often a great option for girls with fuller busts. A nipped-in waist will stop you from feeling shapeless.
2. A-Line Dresses
An A-line skirt makes your waist look much more defined. You only need a subtle flare to see the cinching effect.
3. Wrap Dresses
The wrap dress is perhaps one the most popular dress type out there—and in 2018, no two wrap dresses look the same. From the knit ribbed Arket midi to Ganni's floral wrap maxis, there is a finish to suit all tastes and figures.
4. Tea Dresses
Midi tea dresses have been a hit this summer, and the good thing about this trend is that it's really flattering, thanks to the capped sleeves, button-down front and midi length.
5. Little Black Dresses
There's a reason black has always been considered the most "flattering" colour: it always looks streamlined. A little black dress is an undeniable wardrobe winner once you find the silhouette you love.
