How to Choose The Best Plus Size Prom Dresses To Suit You

Are you looking for a prom dress for which will not only look fabulous but also make you feel fabulous? Many plus size prom dresses look fantastic on the hanger, mannequin or model in the catalog, but when you put them on it doesn't look like the same dress at all. To avoid this you need to think about your body shape, and what style of dress will flatter your figure best. You may be surprised to know that curvy girls actually have a wide choice of prom dresses to choose from, it's just about finding the right cut to make the most of your voluptuous figure.
So here are some tips and rules that you should follow to find your perfect prom dress. If you get this right then you will certainly look and feel like the belle of the ball.

Before you go shopping either in a store or online make sure that you measure yourself properly. Use a cloth tape to measure your bust, whilst wearing a well fitted bra, around it's fullest, also measure your waist, which is about an inch above your navel, and your hips across their widest part. Write down these measurements.
Always choose a dress size which fits the largest part of your body. The dress can then be altered and taken in to fit your figure correctly.
Now take a look at yourself in the mirror. What body shape do you have?

1)    If your body carries most of the weight in the middle section, often the waist is the largest measurement, make the most of your figure and use the following tips.

v  Balance out narrow shoulders with a wrap or shrug and choose prom dresses with horizontal, broadening necklines.

v  Choose an A line or princess silhouette dress to take the emphasis away from your tummy and a horizontal girth.

v  Accentuate your shapely legs by choosing a dress with a hem which is higher at the front that at the back.

v  Draw the attention away from your tummy and hips and to the face, shoulder, and neck areas instead. Do this by wearing a piece of interesting jewelry, either a pendant, necklace or earrings.

2)      If you have a defined waist but your hips and thighs are significantly larger than your bust, then to choose the right dress for you take note of the following tips.
v  Choose a dress which will emphasize the middle of your body and waist area, perhaps with a sash or belt.

v  A dress with lighter colour at the top of the body and darker color at the bottom will help to elongate your body shape.

v  Make your upper body appear wider by adding a wrap or shrug. Go for broad horizontal necklines.

v  Draw people’s eyes up to the shoulders, face, neck and arms by using jewelry and accessories.

3)   If you have no waistline and your three body measurements are almost the same in size, then look for plus size formal dresses that will give you shape and define your waist.

v  Create the illusion of a smaller, more defined waistline by choosing a dress which has a fitted bodice, or has a sash, belt or something similar around the waist.

v  To give the impression that you have feminine curves hiding away, choose an empire line dress, drawing attention to your upper body and allowing the fabric to flow down over your waist and hips.

v  To add emphasis to thighs, hips and shapely legs, team a fitted bodice top with a skirt that has godet inserts.

4)   Most importantly wear something that you feel comfortable in, if you don't like to show too much flesh, then go for a modest prom dress with sheer sleeves, or short sleeves. Perhaps you don't want to wear a full length prom dress, instead look for plus size cocktail dresses, use 1950s style dresses as your inspiration. Add a shrug or shawl to complete the look. If you would prefer something more alternative then gothic style is a huge trend for 2007. For this look choose vintage style prom dresses which feature brocade, perhaps a layer of black lace over jewel tone satins, red, deep blue, green or purple.

I hope this article has given you some ideas of what to look for in choosing the correct dress to suit you. And I hope you find some perfect plus size prom dresses that will make your Prom Night as special as you want it to be.
