The basic dress garment silhouettes can be broke down into four categories – fitted, semi-fitted, slightly fitted, and loosely fitted. Fitted dress garments fit the natural curves of your body and may show off your figure. Fitted dress garments must be well cut and carefully fitted. Caution: This style may crease easily.
