1 – Mermaid prom dresses

Girls who are tall and those with a standard hourglass figure can really rock the mermaid dress. The fitted top half and shaped bottom half make the most of your waist.

2 – Princess prom dresses

Think Cinderella at the ball and you get the idea of how the princess dress looks, and the fitted bodice with full skirt style is what lots of girls believe the ideal prom dress looks like- but will it suit you? Chances are it will, unless you are very short as you don’t want to disappear into the fabric. The structured top half gives support and the neckline can be cut low to show cleavage or be sweetheart style to provide more cover; while the bigger skirt takes attention away from any problem areas.

3 – Illusion prom dresses

This is a flattering style of prom dress for all body shapes, including plus size. The best thing is that pretty much any style of dress can be created this way, using a sheer layer with a lace covering to provide flattering cover for legs, chest or arms without detracting from the glamor of a prom dress. Think lacey top with fitted side split bottom half, or above the knee empire shift with a longer lace overlay.

4 – Fitted prom dresses

The go-to choice for those with a lean figure or wider shoulders; this style looks great in most fabrics and colors, and can be kept as plain or made as bling as you like, plus it can easily be recycled as a formal evening dress after prom. Go for something with one shoulder or in a glitter material for the hottest 20919 look.

5 – Short prom dresses

Petite girls can really rock the short dress look, rather than getting swamped in a full skirt ball gown style. Short prom dresses are available in lots of styles too, with enough choice in hemline to let you show off your legs or give them some cover. Meanwhile, the top half of a short dress can be anything from fully covered to low cut or even a one shoulder style. Short prom dresses can be fitted or floaty, simply choose which suits your style best. It’s best to show off either your legs or arms/shoulders – not both.
