Tips For Dressing For Your Body Type, From Zac Posen (VIDEO)

Fashion designer Zac Posen had some excellent tips to share about dressing for your body type.

Beyond basic body-flattering tricks like color blocking, Zac recommends tailoring clothing, as small fixes can make clothing fit much better. “Be happy in your body!” Zac advised us. “Wear clothing cuts that fit you properly. That's the best way. Never try to fully transform your body,” he said.

When it comes to formal gowns, Zac told us that many of his pieces are built with serious understructures and control wear to help improve the fit. From corset-type pieces to spanx, Zac said there are a myriad of understructure options which, combined with great tailoring, can make a gown fit perfectly.
