  1. Hi Radha, I enjoyed reading you article. I don’t wear dresses to often but, never knew that there were so many styled dresses. For myself it is really hard to find a dress that fits me to were I fell comfortable. I don’t even know what shape I would consider my body. When I am considering to buy a dress I just try them on and see if it look right on me. Is there anyway to tell before having to try on the dress if it would be suitable for my body type. Of course, in your article you stated to the body shapes but, how would I know my body shape? I also shared your post as this will help women determine what different types of dresses are available on the market today. Thank you for this post! Keep up the awesome work.
