Browsing through internet I came across this lovely maxi dress on www.dorothyperkins.com. It's a great dress if you are a Column shape like me.
Column means that you are pretty much straight up and down or have slight curves with no defined waist regardless of the height. Some columns are very angular and usually put weight evenly from top to bottom. The reason this shape is great because it follows your natural body line - straight, hence applying this rule you will look like you have a defined waist and curves. The horizontal stripe will also add curves to this body shape.
