How to Supposed Choose A Prom Dresses long

Almost every teen girl has a question in mind is that how she become the most beautiful one in the crowd of prom party. In my opinion, Long prom dresses, two piece evening dresses, cocktail style and two piece gowns are all necessary for women’s wardrobe because these dresses never go out of fashion. Choose only those dresses which compliment your look & style.

Before you have a look at the types of dresses, let me give you a few lessons in basics that might seem trivial but actually are just the opposite.

  • This will perhaps be the first time you will wear a gown or a dress that will be special for really long, and thus you need to invest your time. So, the point is to start planning well in advance.
     Budget your expense, which might be the most important part of any big shopping affairs. Have cushion space to hover around any unforeseen expenses. More often than not, there will be a plus here or a minus there in the original budget.
  • Getting it stitched or buying a ready-to-wear one? Either way, there will be a few alterations to be made. So go over the details, again start at least a few weeks in advance. If you procrastinate thinking you have all the time in the world, you are wrong. As the day nears and with so much to look into you will be pressed for time.
  • If there is a theme in mind from a movie or show you watched as a kid; from one of the magazine covers draw inspiration. Getting inspired helps because you will need it and it’s a good place to start and a reference when you start planning.
  • You need to understand your body type, which we will be talking about in a bit. But be aware of your body and what suits well. That is like half the battle won.
    A known body type and budget will automatically give you a better understanding to narrow down further.


A body structure every woman desires. And if you already have, nothing like it. You just have to flaunt it in a way that makes it look even better. Since you have a proportionate body and svelte waistline, go with a dress that accentuates your waist, and also draws a balance between the top and bottom part of your body. Mermaid prom dresses are the best choice when it comes to this body type. It does not have to be body hugging.

  • Something like a trumpet or mermaid dress will be a perfect match.   
  • Sleeveless dresses should be your go-to, but it does not stop there.
  • Sweetheart or V-neckline bodice with a long flowing skirt that trains down will be a great way to amp up your oomph quotient.

Triangle Or Pear

Something that most women workout for hips wider than your bustline. And the same rules apply here as well. No prizes for guessing go with something that works on the same principle. Go with a form fitting bodice dress that is form fitting at the top, because you can afford to wear it.

  •  A-line dress either short or long is meant for you.
  • Something in tulle, net or sheer fabric will give it the definition it needs.
  • Halter neck, noodle strap or strapless will be perfect for the bodice.

Apple-Shaped Bodies

You know this is your body type if your bust or upper area is substantial. That is where your strength lies and should be the focus while shopping for a dress. Also, do not forget the idea is to steer the attention away from your waist because it is not necessarily defined. So, long prom dresses are almost always for you while short dresses are best avoided.

  • A-line, ball gown or dresses with empire line cuts will sit well.
  • Focus on your bust area which means necklines like deep V, illusion sleeves, strapless or even halters will be ideal.
  • Preferably go with a full-length skirt or at least falling on the knees, so there is no scope for unnecessary attention.
  • Try and explore dresses that are unique like asymmetrical, either for the skirt or the neckline. 
  • Other details like rhinestones, embellished or embroidered sleeves or bateau will look perfect. 

Inverted Triangle

 If the name is not self-explanatory enough, here’s what makes for this body type. Your upper body is relatively broader, and hips are narrow. The waistline is not necessarily defined, unlike other body types. The best part about this body type is that you can create an illusion of a defined waist by choosing the right dresses. Shoo away the focus from the shoulders, because it’s much broader than the rest of the body.

  • A-line, princess dresses or ball gowns are an ideal match for this body type.
  • Since your bottom part is much slender than your upper body, you can go with short prom dresses that come with slits as well.
  • Try and avoid dresses that are too short because there is no scope to divert attention from the shoulders.
  • Create a balance, and that automatically defines your waist.
  • Peplum cuts or ruffled skirts will be a great add-on as well. 


 A body type that is proportionate from the top to the bottom, without too much of a definition falls under this bucket. So if you’re anything like this, remember that you need to choose dresses that make-believe whatever you wish to highlight. Your options are limitless since you can go with almost anything. Just pay attention to a few details.

  • Asymmetrical cuts or necklines are a perfect go-to for you.
  • Deep V necklines that cinch the waist and train into a subtle twirl are also stylish.
  • A tight bodice with strapless and an A-line skirt with ruffles is another great option.
  • The key is to add volume to the bottom part of your dress and definition to the upper body, so ball gowns or princess cuts will work just as good too.
