Finding evening dresses for your body shape is important but it can take some time. The problem with those who are top heavy is that their chest and shoulders are larger than the rest of the body. While this can seem beneficial, since most people have problems with their hips, this body shape can be embarrassing. The trick is to find something that will work for you.
Halter style evening dresses are among the best for top heavy shapes. This is because the style will hold up the bust and will offer a flattering neckline. On top of that, there is often beading added to the bottom of the bust, which means that some of the attention is taken away from the chest and to the waist. It is worth looking out for dresses with detail around the halter neckline as this can often add more attention to the problematic area.
