A Dress Which Looks Good On Every Body Shape

Getting a perfect dress which fit your body type and looks beautiful while complimenting you is a tough thing, but there is one silhouette which looks good on everyone. The best part is that it’s effortless to wear and is perfect for everyone for every occasion!

We are talking about the A-line dress which is also known as fit and flare. This particular, as its name has a fitted bodice and tapered waistline which serves to highlight the minute details of the body and a skirt which flares out from hips to the bottom seam. It is fantastic as it offers easy-wearing and you can score major points on fashion to your timeless and effortless look it creates.


The term A-line was first crafted by designer Christian Dior, although at that time it wasn’t exactly the same dress as it is now. It was first launched in 1955 spring collection and was a major hit instantly.


After the death of Dior in 1957, Laurent became the artistic designer and he designed the A-line which we know today. Paying as a tribute to Dior, his first solo collection “Trapeze” marked dresses with narrow shoulders and wide flaring skirt. It became a hit and was refreshing besides the tight waists clothing and girdles.

Favourable for every body type

This style has withstood the time test and has maintained its versatility for 60 years because of the fact that it doesn’t require a tight bodice and ultra-feminine figure. Ladies with pear shaped are often drawn to the flared skirt which highlights places around the waist and draws the attention off from the bottom. Less curvy women also appreciate the illusion curves created by it. Narrow shoulders and flared skirt help the torso look smaller and leaner. It is highly favourable regardless of whether you are boy shaped, petite, bottom heavy. The skirt length can be customised to flatter all types of silhouettes be it mini or a midi. If you are small, opt for a short hemline and if you are tall, go for a midi length.

For every occasion

As it is available in numerous colours and fabrics, it is perfect for every occasion. For summers, thin cotton or polyester blend in a solid colour is suitable for casual outings. It can be worn with a cardigan and jewellery and can opt for office wear. According to specialists, any fabric which holds volume or shape in cotton, linen, chiffon or crepe is all great. In winters, the dresses can be layered over stockings and under fit blazers. These choices make them a good choice all over the year.
