Buyer’s Guide: What to Look
Most girls look for a two-piece dress with a more youthful design. Popular choices include two-piece lace bodices or crop top dresses.
A plunging V-neck is suitable for well-endowed girls, and very racy when paired with a sheer open back.
Two-piece dresses draw attention to well-toned abs. Look for a style that is flattering to your unique body type, whether short or floor length.
Your budget is a major consideration. Most designers offer versatile products that are priced to fit different budget.
If you’re not sure, it’s best to keep things safe and not be overly sexy. If your two-piece dress is short, choose a more modest neckline such as high or sweetheart and a closed back. If it’s long, but with a very high slit, the same applies. A long dress with a knee-high slit is conducive to more daring necklines.

Should I pick a Two-piece Dress?
Consider your body type. Is it pear-shaped, apple-shaped, petite, athletic, hourglass, or curvy?
Two-piece dresses look best on petite, athletic, and hourglass-shaped girls. Pear-shaped body types are those, where most of the weight is at the hips.
