If you are preparing for the prom or another social event and you are what we call a ‘full-figure’ girl, this article was written with you in mind. Let’s get one thing clear, your full figure isn’t something to try and hide, rather you should accentuate your curves, and with that in mind, here are a few style tips to ensure that you nail your look on the big night. 

  • Traditional Corset-Style – A long, flowing ball gown is great for a girl with a full figure, as the lines complement your curves. Cream or ivory works well with a dark complexion, while soft, pastel colours are ideal for light skin. Take a virtual tour of the online dress boutique and you are bound to bump into a few great designs. The great thing about online shopping is you can take your time.
  • The A-Line – This is a timeless style that is ideal for a full-figured girl, which complements every shape. Check out the stunning A-line dresses you can buy at the dress boutique, with a range of appealing colours and numbers from big names like Jovani and Sherri Hill. Always read the boutique’s returns policy before you make a purchase. Remember that with any minor alterations, you cannot return the dress.
  • Mermaid Style – You have the perfect figure to nail that mermaid look and if you’ve got it, why not flaunt it? To see the best selection of long mermaid prom dresses, search for online dress boutiques and browse their great catalogue, where you are sure to find the perfect dress. Of course, emerald green is the best colour if you want to turn heads and with contrasting accessories, you will be the belle of the ball.
  • The Empire Design – There are a few good reasons to opt for the empire style; it offers comfort around the waistline, gives you a longer appearance and draws the eye to your upper half. Bright colours are best, with contrasting accessories for a balanced look. Be sure that your bust measurement is accurate when choosing an empire style gown, and with no defined waistline, you will be comfortable all evening.
  • Princess Silhouette – A black number makes sense, with sterling silver jewellery and for the best selection, go to the online dress boutique and check out the stunning designer creations. This is a long, flowing gown with seams that start at the shoulder and down to the hemline, which you will probably have to alter.

Of course, one of the most important aspects of choosing a prom dress is precise measurement; you could ask a local seamstress to measure you up, then you can be sure that the dress is the right size. If you are ordering from the online boutique, make sure that you allow enough time to have the dress altered, which is required most of the time.
