Women of course come in all shapes and sizes. We got tips on how to find the right holiday look for your body type from Robyn Baldenegro, co-owner of Le Dress, a boutique at 1741 W. Division in Chicago.

Large Bust

Black, dolman sleeve, draped v-neckline dress with snake print belt, Young, $275

Reason- The draping of this v-neckline really helps to minimize a large bust & elongate the torso, while the snake print belt draws the eye in and cinches the waist. We love the ¾ dolman sleeve, which adds a very chic 70's vibe to the look.


Hot pink & black color-block, silk combo dress with chiffon ruffle detail neckline, Jay Godfrey, $440

Reason- The color-blocking on this dress really helps to define the proportions of the body, which then breaks up the long line from head to toe. We also love the ruffle detailing at the neckline to add another element of interest.


Mushroom colored, accordion pleated chiffon party dress, Max & Cleo, $178

Reason- A classic A-line is a great way to go if you're fuller on the bottom, but this dress has a great update with the accordion pleating which works because of the graduated width of the pleating, being wider at the bottom half of skirt.

The black ribbon detail really cinches the waist while the v-neckline elongates & draws the eye upward.


Fuchsia, strapless ruched silk dress with tulip hem, Bianca Nero, $300

Reason- With the tulip hem line and all-over ruching, this dress really adds dimension to a petite body and we always love a bright pop of color, it screams 'fun'! For more information on LeDress boutique, visit
