Little Black Dress for Apple Shaped Women

Updated on October 9, 2010

An apple figure is extremely common. Apple figures gain weight in their stomach first. However, they are also said to have gorgeous legs. When shopping for a perfect little black dress it’s good to keep that in mind if you have an apple shape. The most common mistake women with this figure type makes is trying to hide their form by wearing bulky clothing. This will only enhance the roundness, not accent the beauty that is in this body type. No matter the build, every woman can wear a LBD and look fabulous. As I’ve been researching the perfect black dress I found an awesome on for the apple figured woman.


Chadwicks Bolero Jacketdress is perfect LBD for an apple figure.  The V neckline is a favorite with designers as it flatters everyone.  The V on this dress is very deep, which is great for making the neck longer and slimmer.  Next, the empire waistline is a must for apple shaped women.  The ruched waist band on the Bolero is another bonus.  The impression it gives is slender and beautiful.  Another great detail in the dress is the slightly fuller straight skirt.  This shape creates a long line from the waist, down the torso, and to the knees, another great way to give a willowy appearance.  My favorite feature of this dress is the jacket.  This extra piece adds prominence on the top portion of the body, and the long sleeves ending at the wrist elongates the arms.  The sheen in the striking fabric of the dress and the solid black are also excellent for creating a thinner appearance.

Out of all the dresses I’ve looked at, I love this one the most for an apple shaped figure.  It highlights the good points of this figure effortlessly and camouflages trouble areas flawlessly.  Every woman should own a gorgeous LBD for those occasions when they want to look and feel their best.


  • Because of the beautiful jacket, I would keep the necklace minimal. I simple chain with a pretty pendant would be perfect.
  • Keeping the necklace simple means you can play up the earrings. I love long dangling chandelier earring with the LBD. They also emphasis the face.
  • I love the models simple strappy heels with this dress. With the detail of the jacket and the shinier fabric, you can keep the shoes simple and gorgeous.
  • For this dress I think a red lip and simple long black lashes would be perfect for your make-up routine.
  • With the dangling earrings and red lips, this look calls for a flawless up do to polish it off.
  • Go with a small, pretty clutch for your bag this season.
  • What else is great with a perfect LBD?  The perfect updo!  Read

      You don’t need to hide your upper body in a little black dress if you have wide shoulders. Instead, look for body-balancing details like the trendy asymmetrical neckline, like the one-shoulder style.
