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!
