Hourglass dresses complement the well-balanced curves and tiny waistlines of the figure. Typically, the bust and hips are roughly the same size, the waist is narrow, and the torso is well balanced with the length of the legs, assembling the highly desired hourglass silhouette. This body shape is considered to be the most desired one so if you’re one of the hourglass lady it’s time to flaunt the curves. Whether you’re searching for a ball gown or an elegant evening gown for yourself choose figure-hugging styles that show off your stunning natural body contour. A high neckline will show off your hourglass figure even more, as will a dress in a block color. Search for pieces that add curves and have a slim waistline. Skirts can be bodycon or flared at the end, with a long train if desired.
