For wiggle room and comfort

Try this floral shift dress for a non-clingy option. Shift dresses can be slim or A-line, but what they always do is skim the body. Your comfort is paramount with this look, and you can find your shift in fabrics for every season, including wool, modal, and chiffon (try layering yours with jumpers and turtlenecks, too -- so cute!).


For flaunting your curves

Body-con is where you want to go if you have a slim figure, a curvy body, or an athletic shape… and you want to flaunt it! These body-con dresses are available in short, midi, and long lengths depending on your style and mood. You can feel comfortable in your own skin and rock the hip-hugging look all year round.


For highlighting your waist

You may be hourglass, pear-shaped, athletic, or just plain curvy, but one thing is certain: Dorothy Perkins has stocked the shop with ladylike pieces that nip in at the waist with sashes, waist seams, decorative details, and more. This dress is the best of both worlds as a belted shift dress with a tie waist. It can highlight your waist and keep you feeling free and comfortable.


For a “tall drink of water”

Pencil skirts are the way to go to emphasize (or create the illusion of) height. With long, clean lines, pencil skirts play up your best assets and simply don’t disappoint. They can also go day-to-night with ease. Throw a fun print in the mix for a fashionable look you will feel great in.
