Soak Up That Summer Sun - In Style!

Summer is finally here, so it's time to break out those cute, sassy sundresses that have been hiding at the back of your closet since the beginning of last fall! Or maybe you're running low on warm-weather couture and are planning a start-of-the-season shopping spree to pick up some fresh, flirty pieces that will have you sizzling all summer long? Whatever the case may be, you should definitely check out these tips for finding the perfect summer sundress from McAuley's!

Small Bust - The fitted top and banded waist on this plaid dress will emphasize your chest to make you appear more curvy.
Large Chest - The halter-style neckline and banded waist on this dress will offer support without showing too much skin.
Adds Curves - Ruffles and pleats are a great way to emphasize your body shape, especially if you're skinny or slender.

Adds Height - Printed maxi dresses can create the illusion of height by appearing to elongate the body.
Creates a Waist - Belting a dress at the waist (especially a bubble dress!) is a great way to emphasize your curves.
Slims Hips - Dresses that are banded or belted just below the chest can make you appear both taller and more slender.
