Every girl attending prom wants to look amazing so its vital you make the right choice when picking a dress to wear. In this post we will identify some of the main factors you need to take into account when choosing the perfect prom dress and give you some handy tips to make sure you find and more importantly secure the dress of your dreams!
Choose your style
The first decision you need to make is what type of style do you want to go for? Prom dresses come in 3 different styles each with there own pro’s and con’s, these styles are Full Length Gowns, Cocktail Dresses or Short Dresses. When making a decision about style you need to take into account your height and weight and what type of dress will best show off your best assets. For example the Full Length Gown is perfect for a full-figured body type and is perfect to flatter the waistline and hips and can hide any flaws to the lower half of the body.
The cocktail dress is normally identified by its just above the knee length, this style of dress is perfect for prom, it provides the right balance for you to be able to show off your figure and legs but also provides class and elegance. Some cocktail dresses are tight fitted to show off your figure and this can be un-comfortable at times so this needs to be taken into account when deciding if this style is for you or not!
The short dress is for those who want to show off their beautiful figures and those who are not afraid to have the dress tight against their waistline and hips. Some short dresses can be less tight on the top half depending on the style but the majority of the time we would only recommend this style if you can pull it off!
Designer or not?
