There are several styles of halter clothing that will help give emphasis and enhance those body shapes. For instance, a halter top or dress with a snug fit around the bust area will give emphasis on that. Women with an hourglass shape can wear a halter dress with skirt that will drape down to the hips, skimming the curves. Those with a rectangular or straight body type can wear ruffled, pleated or bubble skirted halter dress to create curves.
