How To Choose Prom Dress

It look like when prom season come, girls are not just on the lookout for the perfect prom date, but also for the best prom gown dress to wear to the event. Among all the hassle brought on by the event, this is maybe the one they spend a lot of time on. Wearing the best prom dress can determine how fabulous your night will turn out, so here are a few tips to remember when faced with this dilemma.

Look In Earlier:

Last minute shopping for a prom dress is a no way. Don’t forget, hundreds, even thousands, of girls are searching around, just like yourself. What if the store where you want to purchase a prom dress only stocks a number of dresses at a time? You’ll find yourself out of luck and without nothing to wear. Four to six weeks before the event, buy the prom dress. Not only do you get the best dress, you’ll also have time to do alterations, if needy. Remember not to buy the dress too advanced, though, or your body might change a lot before the big day.

Do Some Research:

If you enter a store without any clue as to what type of prom dress you would like to buy, then expect to shop for a very long time. Before you even start looking at dresses on boutiques, do your own research on popular styles and trends today. Being familiar with different styles gives you inspiration on what you want for yourself. If you’ve decided to have a seamstress design your own prom dress, this is very important.

Unfortunately, not all prom dresses are guaranteed to fit and look good on any girl. The beauty of the dress depends on how it looks with your body type. You may know your body type and which type of dress looks best on you. Here are a few ideas.

  • Curvy figure – An A-line dress is great, to minimize hips and thighs and highlight the waist.
  • Full hips – To flatten your curves and camouflage the bottom line, opt for a strapless and form-fitting bodice complete with a full-layered skirt
  • Slim – Try on a sheath style dress that shows your silhouette.
  • Petite – A body hugging slim sheath with a slit at the side will do. Don’t choose dresses that are too long, or they will overwhelm your figure.

Once you’ve found a style that suits you and your figure, try it in another colors. You’ll want the dress color to look good on your skin, too.
