Top Dress Tips For A Column Shape

  • Best dresses for a column shape are floaty chiffon sleeved dresses which flare to the extreme such as the hemline and sleeves to turn on the femininity to full blast. A-Line Vintage Prom dresses with cap sleeves are also fantastic to wear as they create curves and provide a sexy silhouette figure.
  • One shoulder dresses are great to wear as the use of a dramatic angle dress breaks up your long column shape to add appeal and go for shiny, clingy fabrics to accentuate the curves you have.
  • Colour block A-Line dresses are also excellent to break up the column shape and the same goes for cut. Wear a wide satin belt to show off your slim waist whilst the skirt flirts out at the hemline and if your really daring, wear a dress that falls above the knee to show of your long legs.

Nicole Kidman Column Body Shape

Nicole Kidman

The actress models a delightful mermaid dress which effectively creates curves to her straight body.

The neckline is decorated with ruffles providing volume to her top half whilst the mid-section shows off her slim waist. The lower leg area fans out beautifully creating hourglass proportions to which we give her a massive thumbs up!
