Know Yourself

Are you tall, slender, curvy or pear shaped? When it comes to dressing, scores of students wear clothes dictated by their peers. Even though that dazzling prom dress worn by your colleague or that magazine-cover model is appealing, it may not fit your body shape. Yes, the size might be exactly fitting, but you must take into consideration whether the same dress makes you look balanced or not. Before you step out to shop for that ideal prom dress, be adequately informed as far as your shape, color and body style are concerned. Remember, that dress must appear official irrespective of who is wearing it.

How Long Should the Hem Be?

This mainly will help you in deciding whether to wear a mini-dress or below-the-knees pro dress. Inquire carefully from dress experts on this and don’t forget to try prom dresses with small hems as well as those with extended ones. Remember, the type of dress, body size as well the length of the hem should help in displaying some features like legs in the most charming way.

Your Bust

Some girls have big rounded busts, and for them, they should prioritize on prom dresses that somehow lessen the appearance of their bottoms. For instance, they can wear a costume with a sharp waistline and avoid those that drop straight over your figure.  Doing so, they can comfortably wear the bras of their choice and put on those fancy strapless dresses. For the small bust type, the rule is to wear dresses that enhance your bust line. A good way is to go for dresses with low V-shaped necklines and accompanying this with the right bra size.

Your Budget

Almost every store that specializes in prom dresses discourages the return of any purchased attire. Some even put it in writing and you should, therefore, always consider purchasing a prom gown that suits the occasion and can be worn for a longer period. It will be illogical to pay hundreds of dollars and never enjoy a prom outfit, basically because you missed slightly on your size.

    Hi, I have recently been looking for a formal gown for an evening event and it’s been really discouraging. I was really excited to go shopping at first, I’ve never owned a formal dress, but I can’t find anything. They’re either too expensive or too immodest or just not what I had in mind. Does anyone have any advice on where I could get a modest prom type dress that’s still attractive?

    I just read Darlene’s comment, and I feel her pain. I have been trying to help my daughter find a modest prom dress and it’s not easy. Not long ago I chaperoned a young adult dance, and notice so many girls who appeared to be uncomfortable in their dresses – fidgeting with droopy spaghetti straps, or constantly adjusting ill fitting strapless gowns. If you’re not used to wearing a revealing style, don’t get one for prom. You want to have fun and be at ease, not worrying about showing too much skin. There are modest dresses out there, and websites which specialize in them.

    Thanks for responding Library Lady – Actually after I made that comment I noticed that a couple of the Jador dresses pictured in this article are really quite modest and attractive. I especially like the black one at the top of the post. Anyway, I have looked into this line and was pleasantly surprised.
    As for the comments about buying for yourself and not getting something because it looks good on your best girlfriend or, or because it’s the latest style, I couldn’t agree more.

    Getting ready for prom can be just as exciting as getting ready for your wedding day. I remember my prom and now I get to help my daughter pick out a dress for her!
