You only turn 15 once and you’ll want your Quinceañera party to be absolutely unforgettable, so it’s important to choose the right dress for the big night. Celebrate the next chapter of your life by stepping into your birthday bash wearing a fabulous dress from DressProm.net. We carry dozens of Quinceañera dresses to choose from, making it easy to find a dress that not only compliments your body shape, but also strikes the perfect balance between sweet and sophisticated, marking your entrance into young womanhood. Use these style tips to find the perfect dress for your sweet 15 party:
If you’re tall, a dress with a defined waist will accent your height and help define your silhouette. A dress with too much volume can literally overwhelm the room on a taller frame, so use your long limbs to your advantage by choosing a design that’s more on the slender side. A sash or a belt that runs across the thinnest part of your body can help accentuate your curves and break up a long frame. Strapless gowns are also very nice on taller girls.
Petite girls look fabulous in drop waist dresses. The elongated waistlines create the illusion of a longer torso, which helps lengthen the wearer and make them appear taller with a slimmer upper body. Put on a tall pair of heels and add a full skirt to look taller and curvier. Some people say that short girls shouldn’t wear a princess ball gown, but we couldn’t disagree more!
Curvy girls will look all grown up in a corseted gown. The structured bodice will help create and define the waist, giving you an hourglass shape. Corset gowns are typically beaded and have the sparkle and shine many 15 year old girls crave. A lace-up back will also allow for a perfect fit on your big night.
Style tip: If you’re self-conscious about your shoulders or have a wide upper body, pair your dress with a matching bolero jacket. The added coverage on your shoulders will help create a slimming effect on top to balance out your overall shape.
Girls with a narrow waist and slender hips will look super svelte in a mermaid dress. The form-fitting design accentuates a spender silhouette and remains tight until the knee where it flares out dramatically, like the end of a mermaid’s tail. Try a dress with added beading or embroidery for extra pizazz. Shear backs and high beaded neck lines are also very popular this year.
For those that are well-endowed, a halter dress is a great choice. High beaded neck lines are very stylish and choosing a halter dress for your Quinceañera will give you the coverage and support you need without sacrificing style. Halter dresses are great at keeping everything covered during high-energy dances. Halter dresses come in a wide range of styles with full or slender skirts.
It may seem counter-intuitive, but girls with a small bust can benefit from added embellishments along the chest. Fun embroidery, beading or other pretty details like flowers, ribbons and sequins will help to create the illusion of a fuller chest, adding curves and helping those self-conscious about their upper halves feel more mature. Look for a dress with decoration that ends right under the bust line to maximize the effect.
