Is dance-ability something to take into consideration when shopping for a prom dress? Absolutely! You didn’t get all dressed up to stand in a corner and watch everyone else having fun. The best prom dresses are the ones that look fabulous, but also allow you to easily move around comfortably and of course, gracefully.
When choosing a gorgeous dress that will allow you to dance the night away, keep these features in mind:
- Length. Short dresses really do work better on the dance floor. Dresses with long trains only do well walking down the aisle at your wedding. Even then, brides typically shorten the length when it is time for the reception. There are amazingly glamorous short prom dresses that will give you the right amount of style for the occasion and allow you to do more than hang onto your date during the slow songs.
- Top. If you’re going to be dancing, you need a dress that provides support in the bust area. You want to be able to move without worrying about having a wardrobe malfunction that is going to be memorable for all the wrong reasons.
- Twirl-ability. Okay, so you’re not five anymore spinning around the kitchen making your pretty dress twirl around. However, there is something to be said for a fuller skirt that twirls on the dance floor. They’re flirty and fun.
- Accents. How much sparkle depends on your personal taste, but a little glam will make you shine on the dance floor.
Prom night is a special night. You want it to be one of those standout moments that you will think back on and smile about. What makes the evening a night to remember isn’t just standing and posing for pictures. It’s sharing special dances and moments with your date and friends. So pick a dress that will let you get out on the dance floor and enjoy yourself.
