    Default Dress for an apple shape

    Hi all, I'm looking for a dress to wear to a wedding in sept. Dress code is pretty standard, it's an intimate wedding where we are going out after it.
    I want something that's loose/flowy over shoulders (hate my arms) but a bit on the shorter side (my legs are nicer than my arms lol). I consider myself an apple shape, biggish bust but not much of a waist, largish hips, not much of a butt and thin-ish legs. I would like something brightly coloured too any ideas??

    Maybe a dress that has an A-line or a pattern? Like a dark floral with pops of colours?

    My fave dresses are 'colour blocking' -- black or dark colours going all the way down on both sides with a lighter colour going all the way down the middle.
    So easy to dress up and down.

    Hope I might have helped!

    I'm an apple, but taller and not very big bust. I find an a-line that goes out from directly under the bust always flatters. Like this


    For the arms thing, I'd get a nice cardigan in an open-knit. There's lots around coming in to spring. That way you open up a lot more dress options as most of them have no sleeves. Like this:

    I swear when I read the title I immediately thought that you were looking for an "apple" shaped dress.

    At work we were talking about dress up parties and themes (one being dressing up as food)
