Introduction

Choosing the right dress size can be a challenge, especially if you are shopping online or buying a style that you are not familiar with. Fortunately, there are a few things that you can keep in mind that will help you to select the right size dress for your body type. In this article, we will discuss some of the most important factors to consider when choosing a dress size, as well as provide a helpful dress size chart that can be used as a reference.

Body Shape

There are a few different ways to determine what dress size you are. You can use your height and weight, or you can use your measurements. If you want to be more precise, you can take your measurements and then use a size chart. However, the best way to find out what dress size you are is to try on different dresses and see what size fits you the best.

Apple

If your body shape is like an apple, you probably have a rounder tummy and fuller middle. You might also have slimmer legs and arms. To dress an apple body shape, you need to create the illusion of a waist and show off your legs. You can do this by:
-Wearing dresses with a defined waist
-Pairing tops with belts
-Choosing pants or skirts that sit on your natural waistline
-Wearing flared bottoms to balance out your top half

Pear

The pear body shape is the most common plus-size shape. If you have a pear body, you have hips and thighs that are significantly wider than your waist and bust. Your bottom half is usually two to four sizes larger than your top half. You probably have a well-defined waist, but your arms may be on the heavier side. Celebrities with a pear body shape include Kimberly Elise, Jennifer Lopez, and Beyoncé.

Hourglass

The hourglass shape is characterized by a small waist, fuller hips, and typically rounded shoulders. If your proportions are balanced and you have an hourglass shape, you will look great in just about any style of clothing.

To dress an hourglass shape, you’ll want to focus on accentuating your waist without adding extra volume to your hips. A-line skirts and fitted dresses that hug your curves will flatter your figure while loose or straight-cut tops will balance out your look. When shopping for pants, look for styles that sit at your natural waist and are flared or wide-leg – this will help to create the illusion of an hourglass shape. And finally, don’t be afraid to show off those gorgeous curves!

Rectangle

If you have a rectangle body shape, your shoulders, waist and hips are about the same width. Your waist is slightly narrower than your hips, and your hips are slightly narrower than your shoulders. You may have trouble finding clothes that fit well because your proportions are not “standard.”

The best way to dress a rectangle body shape is to create the illusion of curves by accentuating your waistline. This can be done with belts, empire-waist tops, and A-line skirts. You should also look for tops that have some ruching or gathering at the sides; this will help to give you a bit more shape.

Dress Sizes

There is no definitive answer to this question as dress sizes vary significantly between brands and even styles within the same brand. That being said, there are a few general tips that can help you figure out what dress size you are. First, take your measurements. You will need to measure your Bust, Waist, and Hips. Once you have your measurements, you can reference a size chart to find your dress size.

UK

UK dress sizes are used in the United Kingdom and Ireland. They are numbered differently to those used in the rest of Europe, with the UK size 0 being equivalent to a European size 32.

The UK uses two systems for dress sizes, the imperial and the metric system. The imperial system is older and is still used in some items such as shoes. It uses measurements in inches, with size 0 being 8 inches (20 cm) smaller than size 8. The metric system is newer and is used in most items such as clothing. It uses centimetres, with a size 0 being equivalent to a size 6 in the imperial system.

The following table shows conversions between imperial and metric UK dress sizes:

| Imperial | Metric |
| :————-: |:————-:|
| 0 | 6 |
| 2 | 8 |
| 4 | 10 |
| 6 | 12 |
| 8 | 14 |

US

The United States uses two types of dress sizes: Misses and Women’s.

Misses sizes – The most common size category. For women of about average height (5’4″) with an average bust and hip measurement. Dress sizes in this range vary greatly from brand to brand, so it’s best to consult a size chart for each one.

Women’s sizes – A size category designed for taller women (usually 5’6″ and up). These sizes usually have the same bust measurement as misses sizes, but they’re cut for a slightly taller frame. Like misses sizes, women’s sizes also vary from brand to brand, so consulting a size chart is the best way to find your perfect fit.

Europe

Dress sizes in Europe start at 32 for women and 40 for men. The sizing difference between countries is most noticeable in women’s sizes, with the UK and US being one size apart, while Germany and France are two sizes apart. In general, as long as you know your dress size in one European country, you should be able to find your size in another country with little difficulty.

To convert dress sizes from European to UK or US, you will need to know your chest, waist, and hip measurements in inches. You can then use a dress size conversion chart to find your equivalent size in the other country.

Here is a helpful guide to taking your measurements:
-Chest: Measure around the fullest part of your bust
-Waist: Measure around the narrowest part of your natural waistline
-Hips: Measure around the fullest part of your hips
