The perfect LBD should fit you like a glove, put your best bits on show and hide the bits you'd rather not show!
There's an LBD in practically every style and material imaginable, so you're bound to find the right one to suit your shape eventually!
> If you have a good shoulder and collar-bone structure, but you don't like your knees, go for a long strapless bustier.
> If you're shapely, go for a 1920s-style dress to make the most of your bust and nip your waist in.
> If you want to show off your bust but you have a bit of a tummy, go for a low-cut dress with a pleated front.
The golden rule is to know your strengths and weaknesses and choose accordingly.
