Girls with hourglass figures look great in LBDs that enhance their curves without going over board. Chances are your chest will not be sufficiently contained by a strapless style, but anything with a high neck will make you look super top heavy. We love long sleeve, bodycon styles that accentuate the figure without adding unnecessary bulk. Look to stars like Kim Kardashian or Kristina Hendricks for style inspo.

Super slim and on the shorter side of the spectrum? Petite girls should steer clear of anything skin tight to the body, and should opt for an LBD with added volume and shape to accentuate any natural curves. Never wear anything midi length or longer than the knee, as this will only make you appear shorter and visually cut off your legs. Selena Gomez is an absolute pro at dressing for her petite frame, and the double layer LBD she wears here gives the illusion of killer curves.

Women with an athletic shape are toned all over and have minimal curves. Their straight up and down shape looks great in LBDs that create the illusion of a cinched waist whilst highlighting their toned legs and arms. Show off your tummy in a cut out or opt for a strapless version like Lily Aldridge.
