Prom can be the most stressful time of year because you want to look and feel your best. If you feel good in your prom dress and you exude confidence, then you’re going to have the best night of your life. So, to help you find the best prom dress for your body type, StyleLab, shared the best tips on how to find the perfect dress that’s right for you. First, think long and hard about what your dream dress would be — fabrics, colors that go with your skin tone, and of course what styles flatter your body type. These StyleLab tips will help the process and change your life:
1. Confidence is the sexiest accessory.
“It’s tempting to dress to cover up insecurities, but instead, you should try focusing on the features you love about yourself and try not to think about hiding anything. Most of the time, we are the only ones who even notice whatever it is we’re insecure about, so dressing around it could weed out some really great options for basically no reason. If you play up what you love, you’ll feel great about your look and you won’t be spending the whole night thinking about what you don’t like. Play up your best assets: know what you’re working with and try to pick dresses that shows off the parts of your body that you are proud of.”
2. Use the “1 Major Area” rule:
“pick one area to highlight. If your dress is short, don’t get a dress that is too low cut in the front backless; if your dress is backless, don’t show too much cleavage or leg. You don’t want to look back and think you looked too saucy.”
3. Make sure you can dance in your dress.
“Too tight and too short means a slow, side step the whole night- boring!”
4. Athlete Build:
“If you’re an athlete with a build to match, play up your athletic build! Remember athletic doesn’t mean masculine — you can still look and feel feminine ( if that’s what you are going for) Get a dress to show off those toned arms and back!”
5. Rock that Height:
“We’re firm believers that even the tallest girls should wear high heels if they want to. Ask yourself ‘who cares if you are taller than your date?’ if the answer to that question is is nobody, and if heels make you feel good and have fun, then wear them with pride.”
6. No Baby Giraffes:
“If you’re on the shorter side but dislike teetering in heels (like a baby giraffe) , don’t be afraid to opt for a shorter, thicker heel. You’ll thank yourself later on the dance floor.”
7. Get the size that fits:
“Yes, you can suck it in to zip up that smaller dress size, but can you really suck in all night? Same can be said for a strapless dress with a loose bust — you can probably fudge it, but you will be fussing with it all night. No one can see your tag size except you, and clothes that fit well look 1,000 times better than clothes that are too small or too big.”
“There are some killer wrap dresses out right now, this will highlight your not curves, not hide them. Be careful, wrap dresses aren’t always great if you are busty as well.”
9. Tall and Thin:
“Cut outs tend to help women who lack curves feel more curvy.”
