8 Ideas on How to choose the most suitable prom dress for you

Now that you know what kind of dress you want, it's time to choose the right one for you. Here are 8 ways to make sure you pick the perfect prom dress:

1. Consider Your Body Type

Not all dresses look good on all body types, so it's important to consider yours before heading to the store. If you are pear-shaped, for example, try a dress with an A-line skirt or one that flares out from the waist. If you're top-heavy, look for a dress with a halter neck or spaghetti straps.

2. Choose a Prom Dress in Your Favorite Color

Don't forget that color counts when choosing a prom dress. Now, we're not suggesting that you wear a black or red dress just because everyone else will be (after all, the point of prom is to stand out). But don't be afraid to choose a color outside of your comfort zone.
After all, it's potentially the night of your life, so you should wear something that makes you feel beautiful! Some girls love green dresses, while others can't get enough of pink or red gowns. It doesn't matter what color it is; just make sure you choose one you love because when you look back at your photos in 10 years' time (or even 20!), you'll want to be reminded of how good you felt when wearing it.

3. Take the Weather into Account

The next thing you'll want to consider is what kind of weather it will be on prom night and during any pre- and post-prom events. If it gets chilly once the sun goes down, go in a long-sleeve gown rather than one with spaghetti straps. Or if it's going to be unbearably hot, opt for something light.
4. Get Input from Family and Friends When Choosing the Right Prom Dress
It's important that your loved ones give their honest opinion, so ask them to take one look at the several options available to them. Think about the occasion. While prom is typically a black-tie event, there's no reason you can't wear something more casual if that's what you prefer. If you're not sure what's appropriate, consult with your parents or the invite to get an idea of the dress code.

5. Consider the Fabric

Not all fabrics get created equal. Some are more comfortable than others, some are more forgiving, and some are better suited for certain seasons. Make sure the fabric of your chosen dress is something you'll be happy wearing all night long.

6. Factor in Your Budget

Prom dresses can be expensive, but there are plenty of options available if you're on a budget. Shop around and compare prices at different stores to find the best deal.

7. Find the Right Size

It's important to make sure you get fitted for your prom dress to ensure a perfect fit. Most stores have staff who can help you do this, or you can go to a tailor if necessary.

8. Try It on!

The best way to know if a dress looks good on you is to try it on. Some stores allow you to do this before buying, but if they don't, find a friend who can give you their opinion. You could also take a picture of yourself in the dress and ask for opinions online.
