According to this rule, formal cocktail dresses that are tight in the stomach ought to be selected. The outfit hem ought to fall at a point that it hides wider hips and legs. Ball dresses, flared cocktail dresses, and A-line dresses for cocktail events are ideal options for these ladies. In order to draw the viewer's eyes upward, bustier, halter and off-shoulder dresses are ideal.
