So, what dresses will work with an Apple shape? Scoop neckline or a V-neckline will work perfectly on this shape! These necklines make the torso appear longer and therefore slimmer! You should also try to find a dress with minimal details on the top (very little beading or lace detail). If you have a lot going on, on the top half of the dress, that is where the eye will automatically focus.
This is style 1022 from the Unforgettable Collection. We like this dress for an apple shape. The V-neckline is perfect! The beaded detail has a criss-cross pattern which will give the waist line some definition and then the gown finishes off with a A-line skirt.
Here are two Bliss styles (style 2722 on the left and style 2817 on the right) that would also work well with the apple body shape. Both have scoop necklines and also have shirred waist lines. These two styles are more narrow at the top and then have some flare toward the bottom - these dresses even out the body and give illusion of a balanced shape.
