Fashion styles - the princess and empire dress

The princess dress - or the A-shaped dress is the type of dress suitable for ladies with their hips wider or with a thicker waist, and a version of it is very good for plus size ladies. This dress is a classic that should not be missing from any dressing room. It is the type with underlined waist, either in its place, or under the breast, but with the rest of the wavy dress hiding imperfections of the belly or hips. For the plus size women, the dress or coat version is the best, without emphasizing the bust, only with a platter from which the skirt starts. It is not very wide, it can prove to be a perfect, elegant choice that surprisingly hides the imperfection of the body. The A dress is versatile and adaptable; the neckline may disappear under a high and slightly tapering collar, the sleeves may be missing or may be long, the bottom may be straight or pleated, flared or collapsed.

The rest of the dress goes down to the ankle, or to what length the owner desires. Usually, the neckline is square, but can also be elongated, V-shaped, classic, and asymmetric, or to a one-shoulder dress. Just like the A-shaped dress, this pattern is very easy to fit into different silhouettes.
