Body Styles Part 3 - Inverted Triangle

The Inverted Triangle body style means you have a larger bust, tapering down to the waist and then smaller hips. For the larger bust, you will need a dress that has a supportive bodice.

Best features for an Inverted Triangle body style:

Necklines (with Thick Straps or Strapless)
  Sweetheart
  V-neck
  Scoop
  Square

Waistlines
  Natural
  Empire
  Low waistlines with Mid to Low backs with Lace-ups

Skirts (with Wraps, Tiers or Layers)
  Mermaid
  Straight
  Ball Gown

This short Jovani Cocktail Dress 155493200 has a scoop neck with thicker straps and a skirt with layers so this would work well with an Inverted Triangle body style.
And here's a dress that has the sweetheart strapless neckline, and a mermaid skirt with pick-ups: Paris 2010 Prom Dress 110763
Features to avoid with this body style are Plunging necklines with Spaghetti Straps or Strapless. Circle or Asymmetrical Skirts. Very Low or Open backs.
