A fabulous dress is a necessity, whether you’re going out for a hot date, off to an important meeting or have a luncheon, wedding, etc. How to find a dress to flatter your figure can be challenging though.

One of the most important ways to look fabulous in a dress is make your legs look like they go on for miles. I’ve talked about this before in some posts, but the two pictures below are the perfect way for me to show you. The model on the left is wearing ankle booties. Look at how short her legs look compared to the model on the right wearing nude pumps. They are wearing similar dresses with similar lengths and standing in the same position. What an amazing difference, right? And remember that the woman on the left is a model, so her legs do go on for miles; they just don’t look like it in this photo!
