How to Pick the Perfect Prom Dress
Prom dresses are just like women, they come in all different types and styles.
Pear Shapes – For pear shapes we recommend prom dresses with fitted tops and full or a-line skirts. Or if you are comfortable with your larger behind, go for prom dresses that are a bit more form fitting.
Slender – If you have a slim figure the illusion of curves can be achieved by drawing attention to your bust line or a prom dress that bells out. Also, you might try prom dresses that draw attention to your waist such as a wrap dress or one with a belt.
Busty – You can play up what you have by choosing from prom dresses with a gorgeous neckline; but look for prom dresses with fuller coverage so you can make sure you have adequate support. If you would like to draw attention away from your chest; look for prom dresses that attracts the eye to the hem.
Petite – If you are petite show a little leg and go with an asymmetrical hemline or a long fitted solid prom dress to make you appear taller. Floor length ball gowns tend to overwhelm your frame. Long ruffles can also add the illusion of height.
Hourglass – If you have an hour glass figure consider yourself lucky! You have a naturally well proportioned body with means you don’t need to disguise any thing. Almost every style prom dress will flatter your figure.
Apple – For an apple shaped body prom dresses with an empire waist will help draw attention from your middle. Also a higher waist line means the prom dress may not be as tight in your problem area. If you have nice athletic legs, you might try to show them off by looking at shorter prom dresses.
