All bodies are not created equal nor are the dresses we put on those bodies.  Making sure you look great in what you're wearing is as easy as identifying what body type you are and picking the perfect clothes for that body.

Robyn Grona Bilson from Semblance Boutique has some tips on choosing the right dress for our bodies.

The Hourglass Shape

 Evenly proportional, ample chest and full hips with a narrow waist


Wear items that are well tailored

      Stay away from pieces that give away too much
