Prom Dresses for Rectangular Body Types
To cut your browsing time in half, Cox has a tip: “Look at the dress on the hanger. If it already doesn’t have shape, pass it up. It’s not even worth trying on.”
Our prom dress picks for you:
BCBG Max Azria Dress Strapless Pleated Empire Waist Evening Gown, $298: This dress adds fullness to the bust through pleating, and also cinches in at the waist to create a more hourglass shape.
Reverse Dress with PVC Bustier and Hi-Low Hem, $85.94: The reason this dress works for a girl with a rectangular figure is the way it uses color to break up the body (aka color blocking). And this gown also picks up on one of Wolford’s favorite prom trends: the high-low dress.
