Attractive Apple body shapes often have a bust that is larger than their hips and are well proportioned, but tend to lack definition at the waist. Finding a flattering silhouette is often about creating balance so, if that sounds like you, look out for the following styles.


-Princess line

-Ball gown


Princess-line gowns and panelled A-lines are often a good choice, as these styles will create a subtle curve around the bust area. A corset style that finishes high on the waist but then cascades out into a ruffled, pleated or ruched skirt is also good, as it highlights the waist and distracts from the tummy area.

Watch out for corseted styles that sit lower down as they can cause your tummy to bulge out underneath. Also avoid halter necks and heavily decorated or off-the-shoulder styles, which add weight to the shoulder area and create an imbalance. And remember, good supportive underwear is key to a dress fitting well.

Not sure of your shape? If you're generally in proportion then read more on the classic hourglass shape but if you're pretty much in line you could be a ravishing rectangle.
