Choose smaller motifs in your printed dress which should not overpower your frame. Big prints can make your structure look smaller.

Armholes:

When shopping for tops and dresses make sure that your armhole doesn’t expose any of your bra.

Shoulder placement

Make sure the top of your sleeves sit on the body tops of your shoulders, rather than drooping down the arm.
