Girls who have apple body shapes have a bigger torso and quite often slimmer legs. These 5 dresses aim to show you how well an empire line waist (just under the bust) will help flatter an apple shaped body. If you’re not sure what shape you are you can find your body shape here.
1. Empire line maxi sundress
Bright, colourful and cool, this maxi dress would be great for the summer, and that high empire waist helps disguise a bigger tummy!
2. Empire shift dress in nude lace
Now I know that beige or nude is a difficult colour to wear – if you don’t have the right skin tone you’ll just end up looking washed-out – but it’s more the shape I’m suggesting. Apple shaped girls often have killer pins, so if you’ve got them this is a great way to show them off!
3. Strapless empire line dress
This style is probably best for girls with smaller chests – otherwise you’ll either need amazing scaffolding-type underwear or you’ll be hitching your dress up all night – not a good look! Again though, empire line waist looks great and the floaty skirt balances out a bigger top half.
4. Strappy white maxi dress
Simple and flattering – perhaps the spaghetti straps aren’t v practical for girls with larger chests – but take the general shape idea of this dress and maybe choose wider straps or sleeves.
5. V neck empire line short dress
Again, great if you want to show off your legs. The deep V is also great for lengthening your body and with the high waist your legs will look like they go on forever!
