De-emphasizing a Heavy Bottom and Broad Shoulders

Share
Special Offer

Q: What style of dress (neckline especially) would suit someone who is tall, somewhat bottom-heavy and has broad shoulders?

A: A dress with a slight A-line cut will de-emphasize your bottom. To soften broad shoulders, choose a dress with a deep V neck or a plunging neckline to pull the eye vertically. Wrap dresses also can soften broad shoulders and shift the focus away from the horizontal lines of your body.
