Guide to Buying a Prom Dress
Choose The Right Size
Choosing the correct size of your dress is crucial. All dress manufacturers are different, a size 12 in a Mac Duggal may be a size 10 in Jovanni.
Try It On!
Try to arrange to put the dress on before you buy. American sizes are different and off the hanger sizes vary from dress to dress. It's almost impossible to make a dress bigger, but easy to tailor a dress smaller. Remember you are the only one of you ever made, you are completely unique and your dress may need to be altered to fit before the event.
Try different styles. A two piece dress may show your body shape better than a long flowing dress. Your skin tone will look better in some colours than others.
Plan Your Purchase
Give some time for alterations to be made, also choose your shoes to match. Changing your heel size will alter how the dress falls. If you are comfortable in 2 inch heels, but not in 6 inch heels, choose your shoes. Get the length right, there is nothing worse than being asked to dance on the big night and tripping over your dress.
Be Comfortable With Who You Are
Be comfortable, if you feel good in the dress then you can enjoy your evening. Having it too tight to sit or move will spoil your evening. Remember, yes you may need to dance.
