The Ultimate Guide to Plus-sized Prom Dresses
You've got curves and you're proud of them. You like your voluptuous body and you want to show it off, but often end up frustrated when looking for dresses because you can only find plus-size dresses that hide curves instead of hug and flatter curves. In the recent years, many designers have started creating and selling plus-size formal dresses in boutiques and online sites so that teen girls no longer leave shops in frustrated tears, according to nydailynews.com.
Look for dresses that fit every girl's personal style and won't make them feel old, fat, or unfashionable. Whether you have a little extra junk in the trunk, well-endowed breasts, or a thicker middle, you can still play up your other assets. Don't be afraid to show off some skin, look sexy and confident and have fun.
Know which designers carry plus-size prom dresses and which styles look best on your body type. For taller, curvy girls, try a prom dress with an asymmetrical neckline or an empire waistline as these both show off your smaller waistline and your height. The designer Faviana specializes in these types of plus-size dresses. The Faviana One Shoulder Jersey Dress 9368 would look flattering since it gathers at the torso making your waist appear tinier. It also features a beaded one-shoulder strap and hand-beaded detail near the middle calling just enough attention to your curves. Faviana also carries the Navy Long Beaded Dress 9382, which features a cinched waistline, accenting your curves, as well as a high mesh neckline with a sweetheart one underneath. The entire gown is covered in sparkling sequins so you will feel stylish.
· Find a dress with a halter neckline as it will support a larger bust line better. The Jovani JVN42892 features a high halter neckline, a sexy open back, and a fitted look that flares out near the bottom. It will hug your curves perfectly and comes in flattering colors like basic black, wine-red, and blush pink.
· Show off some skin and especially some toned legs in a shorter fit and flared dress. This works especially well if you're plus sized and shorter, as those dresses elongate you and slim you. The Hannah S chiffon A line dress 27118 features many benefits, including a flared chiffon skirt, as well as high beaded neckline to assist with larger bust lines and a defined waistband.
Wear a ball gown if you do want to camouflage some problem areas and still feel like a princess on Prom night. The Mori Lee ball gown will make you feel sexy and feminine as the cap sleeves and bodice is decorated with intricate beadwork. In addition, the dress includes a beaded V waistband that cinches your waist and lace-up corset style back, as well as a flowy tulle skirt.
All of these gowns come in variety of sizes, some ranging all the way up to size 30. You can find these dresses, as well as others at Peaches Boutique in Chicago.
Shopping for plus-size dresses doesn't have to stressful. The key is to start looking for styles early so you get a feel for what looks good on you early. No matter which prom dress you select, remember to hold your head up high and ooze attitude as you're a beautiful girl just the way you are.
