Formal Gowns and Party Dresses for Busty Figures

Evening gowns and special-occasion dresses for busty figures should be figure-flattering and assist with balancing out your proportions in an effort to achieve the highly desired hourglass figure. Usually, a busty body type is defined as one in which the upper body is proportionally larger than the lower body. Characterized by broad shoulders, a wide back, a larger bust, narrow hips, and an undefined waistline, a busty figure has plenty of options when it comes to special-occasion dresses.

    What Dresses Are Best for Busty Body Types?

    When choosing formal and semi-formal dresses for busty body types, the fashion goal is to balance out your figure and achieve an hourglass look. Choose styles that will accentuate your best feature, like halter-top dresses, v-neck gowns, and dresses with scoop necklines as they will help elongate your upper body. Busty prom dresses with ruching at the waist, a belted dress, or an a-line party dress with a trendy color-block pattern provide a fun way to add definition to your waistline. Unique skirts and hemlines are another great way to divert attention to your lower body. To balance out your silhouette, try adding volume to your hips with a long prom dress with a mermaid skirt, tiered layered skirt, or trumpet skirt. A short semi-formal party dress with a laser-cut hem or a high-low party dress is a trendsetting way to help visually divert focus to your lower body. Whatever your personal preference, you will find a variety of figure-flattering dresses for busty body types to choose from at Simply Dresses.

    When dressing a busty figure, it is best to avoid any dresses that add volume to an already voluminous bustline. It is best to refrain from selecting evening dresses with ruching at the bustline, ruffles, popovers, or flounce accents on the bodice, as these features tend to attract attention and can make your upper body appear larger. Instead, focus on styles that will accentuate your curves and create an overall balanced appearance. Although trendy, off-the-shoulder, cold-shoulder, and strapless prom dresses aren’t typically ideal for busty figures. These styles do not always provide adequate coverage or support and tend to draw attention upward, creating the illusion of a fuller upper body. Formal gowns and prom dresses for busty figures should always help you achieve that highly sought after ultra-feminine hourglass silhouette.
