Buying a prom dress is difficult for most girls and many girls settle on a dress, even though it’s not one they truly love.
When your shopping for a prom dress, there are many things you need to consider before you purchase a dress. Here are some things you need to consider:
Your skin tone: Your skin tone can influence how you look in a dress. For example, if you have a darker skin tone, you’ll want to avoid brown or black shades. This will not accentuate your skin tone. Instead, you’ll want to go for very warm colors because they bring out the warmness of your skin.
Likewise, on the opposite end of the spectrum, if you have very fair skin, go for a dress that matches your undertone. If you have a warm undertone, then earth tones (green, pink, peachy, brown, etc.) will suit you best. If you have cool undertones, then anything in the “berry” family will suit you best. Think deep red, purple, blue, etc.
Your body type: Body type does matter and you should pick a dress that accentuates your best attributes. If you’re a busty girl, wear a dress that is going to accentuate your bust while slimming your waist. If you’re a girl with an hourglass body, wear a slim fitting dress that is going to show off your curves.
The dress type: The dress type matters more than anything. If you’re a girl who wants to hide your stomach a bit, then wearing a dress with extra fabric will help. Likewise, if you’ve got larger arms, finding a dress that slightly hides your body will help as well.
The fabric type matters, too. Fabric that isn’t very flexible is not suited for a plus sized girl where as a girl with an hourglass figure does well with a tight dress. Choosing your fabric carefully will keep comfortable and still have you looking your best.
Knockoff Websites: Make sure you really do your research and only buy from an online shop if you know for sure they are a reputable one. There are plenty of scam sites out there that are willing to take your money, however won’t come through with the quality product that you think you are buying.
