Prom Dresses for Hourglass Body Types
Rygorsky says, “Someone with an hourglass body type should look for a gown that is fitted throughout the top and waist so that it shows off her enviable curves. For a screen siren look, she could even go for a mermaid shaped gown that hugs all of her curves, and then flares out at the bottom.” And if there’s any shape to avoid, Cox says it’s a gown with an empire waist. “It’s not going to extenuate your trim middle section.”
