Tall and skinny look great in just about anything they wear, hence why most models are this shape.

Large busted and petite, is going to be your hardest to dress. Strapless on her figure will shorten her even more. Thin straps will make her look like a linebacker (trust me…I’m BB). Try a v-neck, or one shoulder number. Because she is also petite, a hem about an 1″ above her knee would be flattering fitting with your shorter dress idea!

The average size is almost as easy as the model to dress. 

With this in mind, I’ve attached a couple of links I’ve found to demonstrate. If you could chose one girl to shop with…I’d pick the BB Petite. She’ll be the hardest to dress well.




(the top of this dress would be flattering on all body types)

What about convertible dresses? Like Infinity or Henkaa (check out sewlikemymom.com for easy to sew tutotial if you or someone you know can DIY)

The J. Crew Sophia was my choice for that reason (note – the pic below doesn’t look half as good as it does on the girls themselves).

I’ll put a plug in for mine…these are being worn by: age 44 size 2; age 38 size 24; and age 27 size 16.  It slims the size 24 and 16 way down, which they love; and you could have switch the dress and accent colors on the Maid/Matron of Honor dress…

@angelheart:  I second the suggestion of a convertible dress!  It’s still the same dress but you can customize it as much or as little as you want to flatter all the girls.  My Maid/Matron of Honor fell in love with the new Keira dress by Jenny Yoo and we decided this is the one!  🙂
