LBD for Every Body Type

Everyone should have their go to little black dress, so they are ready for an event or party without a stressful last minute dash to the mall.

The easiest way to balance a bottom heavy figure is to choose a little black dress that skims over the lower half of the body. Fuller skirts disguise heavy hips, while showing off the waist. A fitted halter or strapless silhouette, which accents a trim upper body, is very flattering for bottom heavy figures.
