Dresses for Banana Shaped Women

Dresses for Banana Shaped Women


Being long and lean you will want to create curves to flatter your shape. Ruffles are the best way to do so. You can stand to add the illusion of weight with this shape. Choosing a dress with ruffles will create more curves.

I chose the peplum dress; that is the dress with the ruffle around the waist creates instant hips. Which in the case of the banana shape is a good thing! A cowl neck or folds of fabric on the bust creates curves. Also choosing a dress with a belt creates an instant waist, and the belt is a cute detail and can be a great accessory too!

The banana shape has great legs, don’t be afraid to show them off. Or you can go with floor length dress and still look tall and slim! Either way you are long and lean and I say you should show off your assets!

Remember the dresses in these layouts are for you to see the cut of the dresses, your style should interrupt your taste. You can find these cuts in any color, length or pattern have fun!

About Tylar

I am all about women knowing who they are, finding their own individual style, and not spending a lot of money doing so.  I believe in creating looks that are timeless yet practical and consistent with your own personality. I live to shop the clearance racks! I truly believe It’s not what you wear but how you wear it. Not one of us were created to look the same, so what looks good on one woman might not look good on another. So when shopping for yourself, it is crucial to know what looks good on you. Knowing what works on your shape can make the difference from an ordinary outfit to ex-ordinary. I think we should go through life giving it all we have and I apply this ideology when dressing myself. I know from my own experience that when having a not so good day I know that if I put on a nice dress or fun sassy top, I can guarantee that what ever sour mood I might have felt before starts to slip away when I slip into the clothes. First impressions are lasting so why not always try to look your best you never know who you might meet! These are all approaches I take when building my wardrobe, or getting dressed on a daily basis.

As far as about me as a person to share some insight with you. I clearly LOVE clothes. I but what I love more than the clothes themselves is how I feel when wearing certain outfits. I also LOVE to style for other people. I get such an amazing feeling when I have helped someone select an outfit that they feel good in. Or sometimes what is better than that for me is dressing someone in something they would never choose for their self and they end up loving it. Although I do love clothes I do not believe in spending a lot of money to look and feel good. I get a thrill out shopping clearance. The price tag does not define the worth of an item to me. What makes it worth it for me is how it makes me feel and knowing that I paid half the cost and still look GREAT!
