Empire Line

A very flattering dress for almost any figure as the waistline is raised above the natural waist, which also may fall right below the bust. Good for shorter, petite figures and those with big tums (such as an apple-shaped woman) as the empire dress creates the illusion of length and skims the body, camouflaging wide hips or a thick waist.
The baby doll and the empire-line dress are not mutually exclusive, but the empire had a more feminine/mature bust and can also be full-length.The high waist is usually complemented with a deep V-neckline, rather than the more babyish round-neck, which is also flattering for women with large busts.
