Many people believe full figured ladies are restricted to ball gowns, but GLITZ! experts know that is not the case. Empire waists tend to be the best fit for this body type as the higher waist allows your to hide any problem areas you may have. Chiffon is a great material that allows for a slender fit while still helping to maintain a flattering shape.
The sweetheart is a great strapless option. The subtle curve makes for good chest coverage and doesn't cut into that extra armpit skin everyone worries about. A halter neckline is also a great option. Again, you get great coverage up top as well as support.
