“Whatever style a girl chooses, the dress always needs a few nips and tucks to make it fit her perfectly,” said Thomas Tolbert, owner of Legends in Roswell. “Don’t be afraid of alterations. They only enhance the dress — and the wearer.”

Get a head start and find a dress shape that’s best for your body type. Check out our picks for dresses and find yourself the belle of the ball.”

A princess style

For a curvy shape: Choose a style that gently skims your curves and shows off a small waist. Don’t buy a dress in a busy pattern; it will make your curves look fuller.

Classic looks

If you want curves: Opt for a dress, such as a sheath, with horizontal striping that gives you the illusion of curves. It also works well for hourglass figures.

To flatten a tummy: Select an empire style that gives a long, slim look.

If you have a small bust: Choose a dress with an embellished bodice. It will add volume to your upper body.

Red-carpet favorites

If you are full-chested: Choose a shape that has straps — like a halter neckline — so you can wear a supportive bra.

If you have a slender frame: Look for a gown that adds the illusion of curves.

Retro glam

If your shape is boyish: Select a natural-waist or drop-waist gown that creates curves.

Glam gowns

If you have a small bust: Go for a gown with an embellished bodice.

If you are petite: Choose a long gown in a solid color. It will create the illusion you are inches taller.
