Women with a taller stature find it difficult to get the right dress. Often, they come across beautiful dresses but only to find that, once they put it on, it looks small on their body and very uncomfortable to move in as well.

You can find that out yourself when you wear a dark colored crepe column gown for grand occasions like weddings. Or simply opt for a formal look by wearing a suit dress for work.

All you need to do is get your hands on any lopsided dresses. That is when you realize how perfectly this type of dress brings out the full throttle of their petite beauty.

These lopsided dresses vary between many sexy and chic designs such as radiant colored body con asymmetrical dress with high heels. Or even an off the shoulder lopsided wrap dress in pastel colors also in heels preferably.

Fit and Flare Dresses

Since pear-shaped women have smaller shoulders as compared to their hips, they need to find dresses that create a balance between the upper and lower body to create an impactful appearance.

For this purpose, we suggest that you opt for an off the shoulder A-line skirt in bright colors or floral designs. Try a dark-colored chiffon navy dress. This way you can outline your waist and have it continued downwards in an open flare design to maintain the right amount of balance for an eye-catching getup.

Deciding a dress is one f the most difficult tasks for women. There are a lot of things to consider before making a decision. Does the color suit me? Does it fit perfectly? Do I look stunning in it? All of these types of question run through a woman’s head. But always remember to choose the dress which is comfortable and makes you feel confident.
