Style Code 8: Dressing the 'Y'
Dress Code Formal's design team has submitted a series of tips for each type of female silhouette. There are 7 different shapes and each Style Code will cover one of the body types. Read all the Style Codes to discover your silhouette and find the perfect bridesmaid dress, evening gown or special occasion dress.
'Y' shaped women tend to have broad shoulders and narrow hips. They tend to be described as 'athletic' in build and have very attractive slender necks. Try a V-neck when looking for a bridesmaid dress or evening gown, as this will draw the eye downwards, while enhancing the beauty of your collarbones and accenting your swan-like neck.
