For those who are classified as triangle shape (broad shoulder, slender hips and legs), the sexy V neck dresses will help to draw attention away from your broad shoulders and emphasizing your bust. Dresses with more detailing below the waist are ideal. Since your legs are usually very slim, you can make the most of your legs. You can show off your beautiful legs to draw attention away from upper body. You must avoid strapless dresses, high neck dresses and dresses with full sleeves.
If you are straight up and down and have no curves, you may opt for scooped or sweetheart neckline. They will add curves to your upper body.
