5 Sundress Styles To Suit Every Body Shape


I don’t know about you but one of my go-to summer outfits is a sundress. Classy yet comfortable, a sundress will see you through any smart or casual occasion. Pair with sandals and shades to wear on a stylish sightseeing trip or glam up with heels and some dazzling accessories to create a killer evening look!

So which sundress will you be wearing this summer?

To help you find your statement summer look, here are five fantastic sundress styles that will flatter all body shapes.

Stylist approved, these classic cuts will have you turning heads all summer long!

1 – Fit & Flare

Fit and flare sundresses are brilliant for creating a glamorous hourglass silhouette.

If you have a smaller upper body then fit and flare dresses will broaden your shoulders and enhance your bust.

If you have voluptuous hips and thighs then it will showcase your curves in all the right places.

If you have an athletic frame then a fit and flare style will highlight your toned waist and phenomenal physique whilst adding some ultra-feminine flair.

Impressive, right?

Here are some super stylish fit and flare options to get you started:

2 – Wrap

When it comes to must-have summer attire, a wrap dress should be on the top of your list. After all, these sensational little dresses are the secret weapon of many a stylist.

How, you may ask? Well, wrap dresses accentuate apple and pear body shapes without appearing too tight or feeling restrictive.

But that’s not all! The loose shape of wrap dresses can actually add curves to athletic frames. What’s more, their flowy silhouette with tie-in wrap around the waist looks fantastic on hourglass shapes.

Is there anything wrap dresses can’t do?

Here are some classic wrap dress options that will ensure all eyes are on you this summer:

3 – A-Line

Similarly to the fit and flare style, an A-Line sundress will complement any figure. There’s a reason why they’ve remained a fashion staple since the 50s!

So what’s their secret?

It all comes down to their balanced style. Fitted at the hips and then subtly flared towards the hemline, A-Line dresses showcase your bust and shoulders, soften harsh lines and cover up any areas that you may feel self-conscious about (for me it’s my thighs).

This makes them one of the most flattering dress styles for any body shape.

Can’t wait to try one out for yourself? Then here are three fabulous A-Line options that will look fantastic as part of your summer wardrobe:

Iumei Printed Sunflowers A-Line Dress ($10.89)

4 – Maxi

Many women shy away from maxi dresses because they think they are too long or will completely overwhelm their figure.


Trust me, when you find a maxi dress to suit your shape this little baby will become your go-to summer look.

Petite frames can still wear maxi dresses. Simply pick a dress with a split hemline to create the glamorous silhouette without losing any height.

If you have a smaller upper body then opt for a deep V-neck style that will look stunning in contrast with the length of the dress.

Have a bigger bust? Then choose a fitted or wrap style maxi dress that cinches in at your waist to showcase your best assets.

If you have curvier hips and thighs you will look fantastic in an empire line maxi dress. Bold prints with floral motifs will also look lovely on you.

Hate feeling hot and clammy all summer long?

Then your shift sundress is about to become your new best friend.

The light and breezy style of shift sundresses means that they won’t cling to your figure and will keep you cool and breezy on any hot summer’s day.

Ideal for a trip to the beach or for a long day’s sightseeing, the loose design of shift dresses balances your silhouette without emphasizing any particular aspect of your figure.

The end result? A shift dress will suit any body shape and you can still exude style and sophistication by choosing a bold print or by pairing your dress with glamorous accessories.
