There are numerous options of straight-cut dresses available. An example is the long black print dress with flowers and ruffles or the short print with flowers and trimmings.  

Bloused dresses


They are called blushes because they try a design similar to the blouses in the lower and upper parts but separate both areas with a tight cut. Many emphasize the waist area with volume, but others maintain a straighter cut without paying attention to any body part.

These women do not have a very marked waist, but they have a certain volume in the central area of ​​the body. In addition, the legs are usually thinner, and the shoulders are round. If that’s your body type, Anvisha suggests you wear empire-line dresses.

Rectangular figure


Shoulders, waist, and hips draw a straight line. They are well-proportioned bodies in which tight-fitting dresses at the top and with a lot of volume from the waist feel good. A blue degraded cross jean from our catalog is a good example.  

Hourglass figure


These bodies present a very aesthetic balance between the hips, waist, and chest. Ideally, choose designs that fit well at the waist.

Inverted triangle


Here the shoulders are wider than the hips, and the legs are slender. There is also volume in the pectoral area. The evasé dresses, like the long fascia print with a cut below the bust, help reinforce those physical characteristics.
