The universally-flattering a line evening gown forms the shape of an A, and is ideal for all body types and dress tastes, whether yours is bohemian/artsy, classic/traditional, modern/trendy, or a special occasion in between. Consider the A-line as a long dress or short dress shape halfway between sheath/straight and ball gown silhouettes. With classic, easy-to-wear lines, A-line long floor length or short formal dresses flatter all body types (especially plus size A line prom) because the fitted bodice highlights your narrowest point (your waist), and the skirt is gradually flared to the floor.
