DressDressy: How to find the right "prom dress online"

Getting dressed is a whole lot easier when you know what pieces work best for your shape. The key to dressing like a prom pro is showing off your best assets,the key is to know your proportions. Tonight's post is to know our body shapes and how to find the right prom dress online.

Dresses from

Let's get started! 
1. Petite figure:

A comfortable pair of heels or wedges can become your best friend. Wear them with a mini dress that features a short hem, and your legs will look instantly longer.

If the occasion you’re shopping for requires a floor-length hem, pick a dress that will hug your body, falls straight to the floor and fits you well. Lots of extra fabric and draping can overwhelm a petite figure. With a long hem, less is more. 

2. For tall girls:

A-line One Shoulder Chiffon Floor-length Ruffles Prom Dresses

One-shoulder dresses are great for tall girls who want to make their shoulders appear less broad. The single strap cuts you in half, creating an illusion and breaking up the width of your shoulder.

Go for dresses with lots of pleats and angles, or asymmetrical hemlines. This can create diagonal lines across your body and divide your figure with different angles.


3. If you're a pear shape:

A-line Scoop Chiffon Sweep Train Beading Prom Dresses

Gorgeous gals with a pear shape tend to have fuller hips and thighs and a smaller top. To flatter a pear shape, look for embellished and corset style tops, this helps draw the eye upwards. , choose a dress with a lighter color on top and a darker color on the bottom. You can also draw attention upward by wearing a statement necklace, a fancy updo or big earrings, 


4. Hourglass

An Hourglass shape is very curvy with the bust and hips being about the same measurement and a very defined waistline. Choose a dress with a defined waistline. Find one that cinches your middle, or cinch it yourself with a fancy belt. Also, dresses that flare out at the waist
