HELPING YOUR DAUGHTER PICK THE PERFECT PROM DRESSâ¦
Remember how vitally important that prom dress seemed to you back in the day? It might seem likeÂ no big deal now, but let's be honest, what is prom without a little competition about who has the bestÂ dress? How do you help your daughter pick out a dress that she will love? There are a few importantÂ things to consider.
1. Body shape and size.
2. Hair color and skin complexion.
3. Modesty preferences.
4. Current trends and styles.
Body Shape & Size:
So many girls these days face tough pressure to be rail thin. This is an unfortunate and unrealisticÂ expectation for girls to have to live up to. Help your daughter pick a dress that will compliment her bodyÂ shape and make her feel like a million bucks.
For pear and apple shaped bodies, it's best to go withÂ something fitted on top that flows down in an A-line, or dresses that has an empire waist will usuallyÂ go best. Emphasizing the thinnest part of the body just underneath the bust-line is visually stunningÂ and beautifully deceptive.
For taller girls, a longer evening gown type dress can make a girl feel lessÂ self conscious about her height.
For petite girls, something above the knee is a must to make it appearÂ that her legs are as long as Julia Roberts.
For the voluptuous and full figured girl, halter top dresses withÂ an empire waist work nicely. By emphasizing the top with something fitted, and then letting the restÂ flow smoothly down in an A line, the eyes are brought to your daughter's face, which, let's be honest, isÂ probably one of her most stunning features.
For extremely thin girls, mermaid dresses look nice, as wellÂ as dresses that hang a little more loosely, giving the illusion of more curves. Try out different neck lines,Â waist lines, etc. Remember, what it looks like on the hanger is NEVER what it looks like on, so if yourÂ daughter is eyeing it, make sure she tries it on! Otherwise, as a parent, you will never hear the end ofÂ prom dress buyer's remorse, how awful!
