So im going to a party themed vintage and ive rarely wear dresses but i wish to wear it this time.
i began looking at malls but there are not very pretty. so i went to some online dresses but most of the comments i read says that the dress is too tight on the chest

and generally, i have problems finding good tops that flatters me, the only thing that i am proud of is that i have skinny legs, but im short. I think im an apple shape but im not sure

can anyone advice me something about this? what type of garment should i wear?

Maybe you should avoid strapless dresses, or anything too voluminous on top. To balance your shape I would suggest a full-skirted dress, that would look so lovely on you, but most importantly just worry about it being YOU, not someone else ;) You’ll look great, you’ll see

I’d def show some leg!
also highlighting the waist is never bad, gives an illusion of shape even when you think you don’t have a waist.

avoid top heavy dresses and get a dress with a voluminous skirt

Agree with the others! definitely wear something that will show off your legs. Define your waist but wearing a dress that is tight in the middle or wear a high waisted belt. You can balance the top half of your body by wearing a full skirted dress which flares out, or a dress that has details on the bottom and is relatively plain on top. Tops/dresses with v-necks are good if you are busty, and it’s also good if the straps of your dress and relatively thin- i’m busty and i’ve noticed that if I wear tank tops which thick straps that end at my shoulder they can make my arms/bust look bigger. Tops which are lower cut (not high necked) are flattering too. Hope that helps a bit!

maybe something like this…

http://us.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=33060&storeId=13052&productId=2375562&langId=1&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208634&parent_categoryId=208580&pageSize=20&refinements=Colour{1}~[black]

or if this link does not work, go to topshop.com and search: Christelle Dress by Jones and Jones

it also comes in white :) it gives you that vintage feel and excentuates your tiny waist, while showing off your legs. and the full skirt will give you a nice balance if you’re on the bustier side. also on there,they have a petite section that you would like possibly

Try a dress with an empire waist, or one that is belted. You may want to look at online vintage stores or eBay, they offer a wide variety of cuts and many vintage dresses allow for a curvy build!
