How to Choose a Fabulous Prom Dress for Any Body Type

Prom is the night girls prepare for the most during their high school year. Most girls go through the last year of high school longing for the moment they will get to buy a formal prom dress and show off at the final dance.

However, to look fabulous in a prom dress, one has to plan and think. Below are some tips that will help you find the right prom dresses:

Body Type

When shopping for a prom dress, pick a dress that will match your body type. Don’t hurry to buy a dress that looks good on a model you’ve seen in a magazine. Your body type may differ with that of the model. Rather, get a gown that shows your best features. Here are some dress selections for varying body types:

  • Hourglass body: If you have an hourglass body, pick a strapless or halter top dress that has cinched waists and sashes.
  • Rounded body: Choose a dress that has a low neckline and a drop waist. The low neckline will enhance your bust and the drop waist should lengthen your torso.
  • Straight body: An A-line dress is the perfect choice for this body type. The A-line will help add curves and volume to your waist.
  • Pear Shaped body: An A-line dress that is straight cut with an empire waist line will suit your body.


Most girls have a problem when it comes to knowing their dress size. Knowing your body size will make choosing a dress a lot easier. Manufacture sizes are different and come in ranges such as size 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 etc. If you are shopping online, find a manufacturer’s sizing chart to know the best size dress to select for your body.

Your body type and size should help you find the right prom dress to buy.
