Dresses For Inverted Triangle Body Types:
Choose dresses with deep V-necks. Shoulders should not flare or puff. Sleeveless or long form-fitting sleeves look best while spaghetti and narrow straps will have a tendency to make your shoulder look broader. Stay away from wide necklines altogether. Dresses with empire waists with A-line skirts that float away from your body will create the most figure flattering effect, however full skirts that fall from the natural waist line also work well. Simple wrap dresses with a higher waist are also flattering.
