Ideas For Prom Dresses - Find That Perfect Fit For You

By John Jones

It's that time of year again - time to look around at all the drop-dead gorgeous prom dresses in stores or at online prom shops. But how do you know which style of dresses is right for you? How will you ever find a prom dress that fits your body figure and personality just right? Prom dresses by famous designers such as Faviana, Sherri Hill, Jovani, and others can look great on you once you find a suitable style.

An empire cut dress has a high waistline (commonly starting underneath the bust) and a long, full skirt that moves straight from this waistline. The empire style camouflages a pear shape or thick waist and helps to create an impression of height for short or petite figures.

One of the best reasons to choose a long dress is that it's classic. You will be elegant and sophisticated in a long beautiful prom dress. You may also want to choose a long dress because the chance to wear one doesn't arise very often. Unless you really are a princess, prom is one of the few places where you can get away with wearing a long, gorgeous, over the top dress.

Most teen girls would die for more curves, while some feel they already have way too much "curviness" in their figure. If you are one of those blessed with wide hips, opt for a ball gown prom dress style with a full skirt. This type of design draws the eye focus upward to take the emphasis off of your hips. The focus will turn to your slender waist. Some dress styles to avoid with larger hips are V-necks, which cause the eyes to move downward, and sheaths or similar styles.

If you are the girl that loves to grab attention, and likes to walk on the wild side every now and then, a short dress may be for you. Pairing a short dress with a great pair of heels is a super fun way to spice up your prom look. Another reason to opt for short dress is if this isn't your first prom. If this is your second or third prom night, and you've done the whole princess ball gown look before, you may want to go with a fun and flirty short dress to change things up a bit. Finally, a short dress is ideal if you've got some hot dance moves that you're planning to show off on prom night. Those moves may go unnoticed hidden away in a long dress.
