Shopping can be one of the most dreaded activities if you are one of the millions of people who struggle to find the right fit. Clothing, while made for humans, doesn't really seem to take into consideration the various body types and shapes. A size 8 in one store will fit completely differently than a size 8 in another store. Even worse than that? That same size could fit differently in the same store depending on the item of clothing. How is anyone supposed to know what size they actually are or what fits their body the best? It's really a toss-up.
Some styles throughout history are just known for being universally flattering. That's a way around the one-size-fits-all theory. The dresses come in different sizes, but the fit of the dress is supposed to look good on anyone. What is this? Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants? That would actually be amazing. But back to dresses! Believe it or not, there are ways to make styles look good on everyone, but that still begs the question, which one looks the best on you? We know! Take this quiz now, and we'll give you the classic dress style that most flatters your body type.
