What Factors to Consider When Purchasing A Prom Dress?

Finding the right prom dress requires a bit more work than finding something you think will look good. The latest styles do not matter if they do not match your weight, height and complexion. You also need to consider what colours match your natural skin tone.

There is a history of high school proms being magical and wonderful. There are endless movie scenes that depict the perfect kiss, the perfect dance, and even the perfect dress during a prom night. These have made finding the perfect prom date and dress dream girls and boys are willing to die for. Since, teens are already accustomed to purchasing everything online the search for prom dresses for many also start on the internet. However, because there are literally hundreds of prom dresses available ranging from long to short and clingy it takes a lot more than finding the right colour to buy a great prom dress.

Decide on the length of the dress

There was a point in time when all prom dresses were synonymous with huge ball gown dresses which often brushed the floor as a woman walked along. Times have now changed and while you can still find these dresses at various stores short dresses are now more popular. So, women today can choose the dress that suits them the best. However, the length needs to be considered based on your body type.

Short length prom dresses

Short prom dresses were not very popular a few decades ago but today they tend to be very popular. The most popular of all short prom dresses is the A-line or Sheath style dress that is a bit revealing. A short white skirt is a traditional prom dress which is reminiscent of the 50s era proms. However, short length prom dresses i.e. above knee height are not ideally suited for short or slightly chubby girls. These may be great for girls of medium height and those who are on the skinny side since it highlights their slender legs. Short dresses are also perfect for petite girls who would otherwise look swallowed up by a long dress.

Tea length dresses

If you feel as though a short dress reveals a bit more than you want it to then the tea length dress is the best option. A tea length dress is around ankle height and there are literally hundreds of prom dresses in this category. The good thing about this style is it offers a lot of movement space making it perfect for dancing. Tea length dresses are also great for chubby girls with thick legs.

Long prom dresses

Long prom dresses that touch the floor are traditional. These dresses are often referred to as timeless gowns. Even though these are classics no doubt but many girls may find the dress cumbersome and rather uncomfortable especially if there is a need to dance. However, for taller girls the dress is easier to move in and makes them look good by drawing more focus on upper body. These dresses are best suited for skinny and tall girls. The dresses are available in both spaghetti straps with extras like rhinestones and low cut backs.

Choosing a colour

When choosing a colour girls need to take their natural skin tone into consideration. There are times when even the trendiest colours will not look as good because they don’t match your natural skin color. Girls with lighter skin tones will look great in black, grey and red formal prom dresses. Girls with darker skin tones will look good in blue, green and gold colour dresses.
