How to dress for your body shape: Rectangle

The Rectangle body shape is a very common body shape; in fact, some studies say over 40% of women are Rectangles! No matter the dress size, Rectangles tend to be fairly straight up and down with relatively few curves. Because of this “straight” silhouette, many Rectangles look their best by creating the appearance of a more defined waist.

As a Rectangle, you have many options and can wear both sheath and A-line silhouettes equally well. You can create a shapelier look by wearing belted styles, and it’s also good to wear scoop or v necks to add dimension to your upper body. Draping is your friend, Rectangle! Softly draped fabrics, especially gathered near the waistline, help form the look of a curvier waist.

Want to know to dress for your Rectangle shape? Whether you’re plus size, petite, tall, or anything in between, each style has been designed from the ground up specifically for your Rectangle body shape.

Circumference of bust, waist, and hips are very close with little to no curves in between.

The rectangle body type has many options and can wear both sheath and A-line silhouettes well; the key is to create the illusion of a waistline. Shape can be created by wearing belted styles of a sheath and A-line dresses and it’s also good to wear a scoop or v-neck to add dimension to your upper body.

Silhouettes: A-line, Sheath, Empire Waist & Wrap

Neckline Shapes: Scoop & V- Neck
