Prom Dress Size Measuring Tips

May 29, 2017

When ordering your prom dress online from DressProm.net, it is incredibly important to get your measurements right to ensure that you order your dress in the correct size. Don’t assume that your prom dress will be the size that you normally wear as these evening gowns typically run smaller than other clothing. This is especially true of tight-fitting dresses such as mermaid gowns.

The best way to get your most accurate measurements is to enlist the help of a friend or family member and follow these steps:

  1. Use a flexible ribbon measuring tape.
  2. Make sure that you’re standing comfortably with even weight on both feet. Keep your body relaxed and don’t try to suck in your stomach unless you’re prepared to keep it sucked in for hours on prom night while you struggle around in your ill-fitting dress.
  3. Measure your bust first around the largest part. Make sure to get an accurate measurement.
  4. Then, measure your natural waistline. This is usually about an inch and a half above your belly button. Make this measurement tight as this is usually the tightest part of a prom dress.
  5. Finally, measure the widest and fullest part of your hips.

As long as you accurately take these three measurements, your dress should fit just fine. To be absolutely certain, you should make sure to order your dress with plenty of time to exchange sizes should a problem arise. For more information on taking your measurements and a quick video tutorial, check out the DressProm.net measurement guide.

Pairing the Perfect Prom Accessories

May 10, 2017

The Basics: Finishing Your Look

Once you’ve found your dream prom dress, it’s time to pull the whole look together. It will help if you have a certain theme in mind when you choose your accessories. Some dresses are simpler to accessorize than others, so it’s important to always consider the dress. After all, it’s the main attraction. The key thing that you’ll want to make sure of is that you keep your outfit balanced. You don’t want to overwhelm yourself with too much jewelry and loud, clashing pieces. You’ll want to stay glamorous without crossing the line to cheesy.

Shoes and Handbags

Choose your shoes based on your dress and personal style. Be creative with them, because you have the opportunity here to select a pair that really stand out and make your ensemble your own. If your dress is long and ornate with brighter colors and patterns, it’s probably best to choose a shoe that is simple and coordinates with your dress’s colors. However, if you chose a solid, neutral-colored dress, such as a classic black gown, you may want to go bold with your shoes to provide contrast and color in your outfit. Whichever shoes you pick, just make sure that they fit you comfortably. You’ll be on your feet all night and you wouldn’t want to be in pain for hours. The same basic rules apply to handbags. Choose something simple and coordinating for a loud dress and something brighter that will stand out for a neutral one. There won’t be any need for a huge purse, so just make sure that you have enough room to fit a few essentials.

Jewelry

There are a million different jewelry options when it comes to accessorizing your prom dress. From bracelets to necklaces to earrings to tiaras and crowns to jeweled hair accessories, the choices can seem overwhelming. Just remember that less is more. Most prom dresses look best with a minimal amount of jewelry. You want to stay classy and elegant and the best way to do that is to keep your number of jewelry pieces low. That being said, you should choose fewer pieces, but really use them to give your ensemble some personality. Whether you prefer something simple and classic like a string of pearls or something funkier and more modern, go with what you really like.
