Little Black Dress for a Ruler Body Type

Updated on April 4, 2011

There are a few different ways that a ruler figure can be described. Some call it a rectangle figure and others a boyish figure. I like the term ruler the best because it brings to mind the correct mental image. A woman with a ruler figure is mostly straight up and down. This is the figure model agencies comb the streets for. The most important thing about choosing a little black dress for this figure is trying to create curves and also emphasizing the small waist of this body type. This dress does it all and is also ridiculously affordable.

Metro Style’s Peasant dress looks fabulous and is also under $20! First, the top is a peasant style blouse. This design and the contrasting color add interest and curve to the upper part of the body, creating an hour glass shape.  Next, the neckline is also versatile and flattering as it can be worn on, or off the shoulders. Another important point is the wide belt at the empire waist. Ruler types look gorgeous when they show off their tiny waists. Also, the skirt is a straight pencil skirt that ends perfectly at the knee. Pencil skirts are flatterung for ruler bodies because they flaunt the small hips while also adding a slight curve. What’s further, not only is this dress affordable, it’s also machine wash!

This is the ultimate LBD. The price tag is ridiculous and the look is stunning. It is the ideal choice for the ruler shaped figure. Not only that, it would look remarkable on pear and hourglass figures as well.




  • A beaded black or silver necklace with matching earrings would be a great touch for this LBD.
  • When wearing a pencil skirt, high heels are a must.
  • A black jacket can easily be added to make this dress work appropriate.
  • Wearing the hair down and flowing will compliment the peasant style top.
  • Cat eye make-up with a deep wine colored lip would look stunning with this LBD.
