Tips for Dressing a Busty Figure

Jan 31, 2011

You need to learn how to dress what you have.  Everyone has a unique and beautiful build, and that should be celebrated.  Last time, we gave you some tips for dressing a figure that’s a bit bottom heavy  If your figure is a little on the busty side, Dress Prom has a few tips to help you make the most of what you’ve got. busty figure dress

  • Make sure you’re aware of spillover.  You don’t want to spend your whole prom night in a dress that creates more cleavage than you really need.  For a busty girl to wear a strapless neckline, she needs to make sure that the dress has some serious support.  Look for prom dresses with a built in bra or boning.  Also make sure that it leaves enough room for your ample assets—without smushing them.
  • Make sure the fit is flattering.  If there are certain details on the dress that are meant to rest under your bust line, make sure the dress has enough room for you.  The last thing you want to do is draw attention to an ill fitting garment.  Shop around for the perfect fit.  Dress Prom has so many prom dresses, you’re sure to find the perfect one for your figure.
  • Cinch your waist, show off your shoulders, and draw attention to the right place.  This will create the look you want.

  • Balance your figure with color and fitted pieces.  Wear a fitted jacket on the top that’s the same or similar color as a looser skirt on the bottom.  This look is great for casual winter dances.
  • There’s a phrase you should always remember:  Fit and flare.  Keep it fitted on the top, and let it flare out at the bottom.  A-line is perfect for you.
  • Wear patterns or prints on your smallest feature.  This will draw attention up and away from your heavier bottom half.
  • Look for dresses with a raised waist.  An empire waist accentuates your smallest part.  That’s what you’re looking for in a prom dress!
  • Pick a pretty neckline.  Again, it’s all about looking for ways to draw attention upwards.
  • Try a look that’s light on the top and dark on the bottom!  Classic and chic.

Valentine’s Day Dance Ideas

Ruffles and hearts for Valentine's Day

Ruffles and hearts for Valentine's Day

Now that we’re into the New Year, it’s time to start planning those Valentine’s Day dances!  Many of the short cocktail dresses here at Dress Prom are perfect for the laid back and romantic atmosphere of a Valentine’s Day dance.  Here are a few tips for making the most of this season of love!  We’re sure many of you are involved in your school’s planning committee or student council—so bring these ideas to the next meeting!

If you choose a traditionally themed Valentine’s Day dance, make sure you get the right décor.  It’s all about building the right ambiance to set the mood.  The color palette, of course, will be red, pink, and white.  Make sure you include some roses, too!

Hang hearts on the wall.  You can also include some red and pink streamers.  Have balloons in your chosen colors, like balloon clusters or a balloon archway at the entrance to the dance hall.

Before you make any decisions, you need to have a firm theme in mind.  For instance, a theme idea might be a “Singles’ Valentine’s Day Dance.”  A dance like that would encourage mingling and meeting new people.

No matter what your Valentine’s Day dance entails, you can find the right attire here at Dress Prom.  We’ve got the gorgeous pink and red cocktail dresses you need to make a real splash!

Enough can go wrong at a wedding... Don't let a tattoo add to it!

Dear Dress Prom,

My sister got married over the summer, and I was one of her bridesmaids.  I have a rather large tattoo on my shoulder.  My sister chose strapless dresses for her bridal party, and she didn’t want my tattoo to draw attention away from her special day.  I totally understood this—so I went out to see what I could do to temporarily cover it up.  I was happy when I found your Tattoo Cover Kit.  It was exactly what I needed.

The coverage was virtually flawless.  I was able to stand in front of the entire crowd and not have to worry that my tattoo was showing.  I’m glad I was able to make my sister’s wedding day special.  I just wanted to thank you for such a great product.  I’d recommend it to anyone.  It’s a great quick fix for special occasions.  I love my tattoo, but I totally understood why my sister wanted me to cover it up.

Thanks again!
