Style Advice

The Ariana is perfect for the lean column body shape, because it creates female roundness and fullness around the bust and hip area.

Style Advice for all body shapes

ARIANA: INVERTED TRIANGLE BODY SHAPE

The Ariana is not recommended for the inverted triangle body shape. Since the open slash neckline dominates this dress the attention is kept upward, which makes it not to a poor choice for an inverted triangle. The lack of details in the skirt line fails to create enough attention to create a big enough feature to balance with the neckline. Therefore this dress will simply follow the body shape by making the shoulders look broader and the mid and lower part smaller rather visually balancing it out by doing the opposite. Also as this dress has padded shoulders it will create unwanted volume on the top for the inverted triangle.

ARIANA: LEAN COLUMN BODY SHAPE

The Ariana is perfect for the lean column body shape, because it creates roundness and fullness around the bust and hip area.

Front

The open split neckline goes as low as the top of the chest. It has a wider opening on top and a lower and wider form of a crew neckline. These features create the illusion of roundness in the top chest area since most women with a lean column body shape generally have a smaller chest and therefore need to create the illusion of a fuller chest.

The darts in the breast area support a better fit and provide the illusion of roundness in this area.

The padded shoulders add roundness to the top half.

The slightly fitted style on the top half is widening from the waist downwards into an A line shape, which helps to create the illusion of waist for this body shape.

Back

The back line is kept in the style of crew neckline but with wider broader shapes on both sides. This adds visual fullness as well as roundness to this body shape.

The middle part is kept without darts since darts are more for form fitting and having them in the back waist could simply run the risk to show the non-existing waistline. Instead the dress starts to go out from the waistline so, it shows the illusion of a waist.

ARIANA : RECTANGLE BODY SHAPE

The Ariana can work for the rectangle body shape.The neckline as well the softer a line body shape works well for the rectangle. The problem is in the middle part of the body. The lean column and rectangle body shape might have similarities, but the lean column is less boxy and sometimes has a little waist definition while the rectangle has none. So, this dress might or might not work due to this feature, but that depends on the height, scale and size of the wearer.

ARIANA: APPLE BODY SHAPE

The Ariana is not ideal for the apple body shape. As for the full hourglass this neckline wonメt look good on a fuller bust and its tighter fit between bust and waist doesnメt give any additional room for the fullness of an apple in the tummy area. This will cause unflattering tightness in the middle section and creating an unwanted focus to that part of the body.

ARIANA: PEAR BODY SHAPE

The Ariana can work for the pear body shape. The neckline and the softer A line skirt line work well for a pear but it can run into trouble with the fit in the hip area. Though it goes out in the waistline it might not be enough to provide a smooth transition to the hips or fit in the hip area. This can result in an unflattering accentuation of the hips and/or tightness around the hips.

ARIANA: NEAT HOUR GLASS BODY SHAPE

The Ariana is suitable for the neat hour glass body shape. This dress is similar to the neat hourglass body shape but varies at various places and especially lacking any of the waist definitions that the neat hourglass dress has. But since the neat hourglass has the perfect proportion this lean column dress will fit with ease on this body shape.

ARIANA : FULL HOURGLASS BODY SHAPE

The Ariana is not ideal for the full hour glass body shape.The neckline is too high for the bust of a full hourglass. It will simply change the shape and style of this open slash neckline by splitting it wider up or make it stand up. Both variations are not flattering in look and style.
