By reviewing customer reviews you will also find out from people of all shapes and sizes who have purchased and tried the products and how they fit and if they liked the style.

4. Order More Than One Cocktail Dress
When you are unsure which size you need or you are in between sizes and you are just not sure which size will be the best fit, we recommend that you purchase the cocktail ensemble in multiples styles and return the one that does not fit. Another suggestion to try a new cocktail silhouette is to purchase one style that you know you love and also several styles that are outside of your comfort zone. That way you can return any items that you do not like or do not fit correctly.
Pro Tip: Before you make a purchase, especially if you will be purchasing the same item in multiple sizes be sure to review the exchange/return policy. You want to make sure before you make the purchase that you can live with the return policy especially when you are making the purchase knowing that you will be returning at least one of the items that you purchased.

By all means, if that is the cocktail silhouette that looks amazing on you then, shop that dress shape. If you don't know what style of dress you want to purchase start with cocktail styles that mirror the shape of your own body. A dress that follows your natural shape is more likely to fit and require a lot fewer adjustments.
Pro Tip: At Ledyz Fashions, our stylists encourage you to not be afraid to try a new silhouette. When you are out on the town for the night who doesn't want to have everyone sneaking peeks at you and asking where you got your dress. If you are unsure of which other styles of dresses look good with your body shape then use the guide to help you discover other styles options and cocktail silhouette inspiration.
