TRL is on holidays!

Hello everyone,
Just dropping a line to tell you that I will be on holidays until September, when I will resume posting. Meanwhile, I will try to enjoy Copenhagen's weather (not an easy task), and maybe go on holidays for some days in August.
Hugs to all,

Best dresses for Body type Cs: Part 2

These is the second part to last week's Best dresses for Body type C.

Strapless. A dress with either a pencil skirt or a gored one (with triangular panels inserted at the hem) will be flattering. A thin belt, or an obi or sash at the waist will create additional curviness.

Best dresses for Body type Cs: Part 1

Let's remember first what's the ideal for Body type Cs:
To soften the shoulder line, balancing it with their lower body, and to create definition at their waist, elongating their middle.

Other names for Body type Cs are: triangle, pear shape, or A shape. 
How to achieve it?
  1. Not accentuating the width of their shoulders, choosing certain necklines and sleeves, and avoiding wide lapels.
  2. Avoiding details or bulky materials on the bust completely in the case of medium busted Body type Cs, but sparingly in the case of small busted Body typs Cs, like breast pockets or vertical pleating in light fabrics.
    With that in mind... What are Body type B's best dresses?
    Tunic dress. This shape is great for a Body type C because her hips are narrow. Worn with flats or substantial heels, it hightlights her great legs.
