8 Cutout Dresses for Different Body Types
There are a million and one articles (and counting!) about different types of dresses to compliment all body types. Here’s a special one dedicated just for cutout dresses. Cutout dresses are sexy and flirty because they allow you to flash skin in unexpected areas while remaining classy and fun. But as always, take notice of where the cutouts can best be used to your advantage! While we can’t cover every single body type out there, we’ll do our best to give tips for the most common.
Sporty or Pear Shaped
The girl who swears she was born without a real waist to flaunt should look for a dress with cutouts right at the waist or the ribcage area. The eye will be drawn to where the dress’s fabric cuts in, creating the illusion of curves. And for the girl who’s pear-shaped, the A-Line will skim nicely over hips.

Busty and Curvy
Don’t want to show too much cleavage or conscious of too many cutouts? Look for something with delicate cuts along the collarbone or cutouts on the upper or lower back, so you don’t have to worry about your bra or the girls showing.

If you’ve been lamenting all this time on how you’re decidedly lacking in the chest department, your lucky day is here. You can probably get away with the deepest cutouts in the back of dresses because you have the option to go with a strapless bra, bra-less or with just a bralette.
