Prom Dress Styles to Fit Your Body Type

Last updated 4 years ago


Nothing is more exciting than prom night! From the entrance, to the decorations, down to the final song, prom night serves as the ultimate celebration for high school students. When choosing your prom dress, there are a number of elements to consider. You should look for a dress in a color and style that you find attractive, but it’s also important to pick a dress that flatters you. This guide can help you choose the perfect prom dress for your body type:

  • Hourglass Figure. If your bust and hips are similar in size but your waist is narrow, you have an hourglass figure. This classically feminine body type can look good in a variety of fabulous dress styles. Both short, flirty dresses and longer gown-style dresses work well for a girl with an hourglass figure. Be sure to pay attention to the neckline—some may be too revealing for a girl with a larger bust, so make sure you feel comfortable and secure with whatever neckline style you choose.
  • A-Shaped Figure. If your bust is smaller than your waist and your waist is smaller than your hips, you likely have an A-shaped figure. When searching for the perfect gown, you want to bring the eyes to the top of your body, as emphasizing your bust or waist will give you those stunning movie-star proportions. Look for a dress with beautiful detail up top. You can also choose a shorter dress to show off those legs and emphasize your curves!
  • Thin Figure. If you have a slimmer or more slender figure, you can choose nearly any dress! Your biggest task will be to determine which details suit you the most: Think about colors and patterns that work with your skin tone, as well as cuts and styles you find attractive.
