The Perfect Prom Dress – The Things You Need to Think About

If you want the perfect prom dress there are a few different things you need to consider.

Whether you do one, or a few of these suggestions, you will be on the path to perfection.

If you manage to tick the box for all six you will be a shining star on prom night, wearing the perfect dress.


Without a doubt one of the most important aspects of the perfect prom dress is uniqueness.

If even one other girl is wearing the same dress, then your hopes of having the perfect dress are squashed.

Some girls even go as far as making something completely themselves in order to ensure they are wearing something that is guarenteed to be different to everyone else.

Style is that funny feeling that either feels just right for this day and age, or makes you feel embarrassed and outdated.

The best way for you to get a feel for which styles are going to be hottest on prom night is to closely watch the evening dresses worn on the red carpet.

The main red carpet events leading up to prom each year include:

  • The golden globes
  • Oscars
  • MTV awards

Getting the right fit for your body

Like every girl you will have different body aspects that you would prefer to either hide, or promote.

We talked about this in a recent article so whether you are wanting to either highlight, or disguise the following:

  • Arms
  • Bust
  • Curves
  • Hips
  • Backside
  • Pearshape
  • Height

Make sure you read our article on body styles.

Theme appropriate

Most proms have a theme. The style of dress you choose should not be at odds with the theme.

If your school is having a haunted house theme, a dark Gothic styled dress could be the way to go.
