Body issue solutions from petite to plus size

 Handy hints for creating a chic shape in a wrap dress.

1: Petit: Avoid large prints. Choose monotones or simple feature printed trims for a bright Spring/Summer look.
2: Large bust: V-shaped necklines draw the eye down creating a longer vertical line detracting from a larger bust. A halter neck can work well as the angle can be flattering provided your shoulders are not too broad.
3: Undefined Waist: Printed trim or accent features on waistbands provide shape by creating the illusion of a cinched waist.
4: Arm Hate: Avoid sleeveless styles. Choose your sleeve length according to bust size and body shape. For a larger bust select a ¾ or long sleeve, or team with a wrap around pashmina style garment for evening looks.
5: Plus Sizes: Wear a V-shaped neckline. Combine with an on, or just below knee hemline to create long lines.
6:Tummy Troubles: Ruched waistlines are a great disguise. This is my personal problem and it works a treat every time. Good for big dinners too.
