Skinny girls want to look beautiful in their ball gowns too. Most ladies want to be super thin, but slender girls know its not always easy to look fabulous. Skinny ladies need help to create a hourglass silhouette and thin women are small in both their hips and breasts. There are ways to help fill out the skinny figure, though.
Best Ball Dresses For Skinny Girls
Form fitting ball dresses such as sheath dresses and trumpet dresses with a cinching at the waist looks well. The belt helps to create an hourglass silhouette which might not be as noticeable otherwise. Dresses cut on the bias also gives a nice silhouette to the less well-endowed.
As for necklines, avoid halter, portrait, and off the shoulder necklines. These styles will show off a bony collarbones. If you want to create the illusion of cleavage, choose V necks and plunging necklines. This, added to the cinched waist, helps create an elegant silhouette.
However, slender girls can wear the clingy fabrics which are not kind to curvy girls. While materials such as silk and satin shows roundness a girl doesn’t want to be shown, skinny girls lack the bumps and can wear these fabrics with ease.
Ruffles do not flatter, instead skinny girls get lost in all the floof. That being said, a slight ruffle at the bust can give fullness to flat chests. Loose ball dresses are not kind because a thin girl gets lost in the flowing folds. Instead, tailoring is a friend. This is why sheath dresses and belts are the better option. With these, a girl is working with what she has instead of getting lost in yards of fabric.
Strips can or can not be a skinny’s girls ally. Vertical stripes are a disaster, because they make the wearer look thinner. A thin girl isn’t wanting to look smaller, she wants to look rounder. So, go the opposite and try out horizontal strips which makes people look wider and rounder. When considering colors, avoid black and gray. They help round girls by making them look slimmer. Instead, go bright and make a splash.
Now, what to wear on your feet? High heels make you look taller but they also make you look thinner. The problem is you don’t wear flats with a ball gown, so try a shoe with a small heel.
Yes, it takes effort for a skinny girl to fill out a ball gown, but with the right choices, she can look fabulous.
