Prom is a once in a lifetime experience, so you’ll no doubt want everything to be perfect — the shoes, the makeup, and most importantly, the dress. But what makes a perfect prom dress?
Before you run to the nearest department store, set on picking up the most eye-catching, on-trend dress you can find, it’s important to take a couple of things into consideration.
When deciding on a dress, always make sure to factor in comfort.
A full or floor-length dress is well suited for a tall and slender body type, but petite figures may want to consider something shorter or asymmetrical to prevent getting lost in the dress. For pear-shaped figures, consider a-line skirts, and a busty figure will want to make sure and choose a dress with enough support up top, which may mean passing over strapless options.
Two major things to consider and test out: is the bodice secure enough that it won’t wriggle down over time, and does the fabric have enough give so as to avoid any ripping or tearing.
