Prom Party Dresses for Every Body Type

Finding the right prom party dresses for your body type can be tricky, but with a little help from PromHeadquarters.com, you should be well on your way to a perfect prom with a gorgeous dress that fits you perfectly. Check out this quick guide to finding the right prom party dresses for your body type.


For Hourglass Shapes
Hourglass shapes look fabulous in flirty little prom party dresses that show off their curves. Look for dresses that accentuate your tiny waist with fun details like ribbons, bows, or corset backing, which can add that right amount of drama to your ensemble. Almost any dress will look good on you, especially sheath-style party prom dresses or those with a full skirt and a cinched waist. Mermaid styles are also fab.


For Apple Shapes
Have a tummy you want to hide? Pick prom party dresses with ruching around the middle to camouflage your trouble spots. Do find a dress with a bit of boning in the bodice to give you some more shape, as well as to give you an instant tummy tuck. Avoid dresses with drop waistlines. Try slipping into a fun party dress with an empire waist or a fuller skirt.


For Pear Shapes Pear shapes look divine in empire-waisted prom party dresses that feature an a-line skirt. Avoid dresses that hug your hips are add lots of bulk or layers around that area. Look for fun little details on the bust or neckline to draw the eye upward and accentuate your shoulders. Strapless prom party dresses are ideal for this body type, but circular necklines work just as well.


For Larger Busts/Broad Shoulders
If you have a larger bust, make sure that you find a prom party dress that offers enough support for you. Unless you have a good strapless bra, strapless and spaghetti strap dresses are to be avoided. Also avoid dresses that have a lot of bulk, ruffles, beading or embellishment on the top or neckline. Keep it simple and have fun with your skirt, which would have an a-line in order to make your shape look more balanced. Avoid empire-waist or bandeau-neck dresses which can make you look unbalanced. Do play up your bust with a flirty halter neckline.
