The first crucial step to finding the perfect long prom dress or even a short prom dress is to decide what colors you want to wear. Look for dresses in your favorite color or in a color that looks the best on you. Many times dress selections can be sorted by color when you look online. However, when you go to a dress or gown store look for a style you like then ask if it comes in the color you desire. Many shops do not have every gown in every color they come in displayed in the store.
The second thing to finding the perfect prom dress is to take into
consideration how you plan on wearing your hair. Girls with beautiful
long hair might want to look at dresses that are plain in the back if
they are planning to wear their hair down. Some gowns have fancy backs
with lacing or designs and you do not want to cover that up with hair.
If the dress you want has a pretty back you should consider wearing your
Prom dresses that are backless look good with the hair slicked back
into a bun or curly pony tale. Long prom dresses that flow might poof
out a bit but are very elegant. You may want to try your hair up and
cascading down in beautiful ringlets. This is a very attractive way to
add class to your outfit.

all the beautiful floor length prom dresses that are available. They
come in so many designs and colors it will make your head spin. Dresses
can be a solid color, they can be sparkly, they can have a floral print.
If you purchase online be sure to look at the size chart for each
dress. Not all manufacturers apply sizes the same way so make sure you
take your measurements and check them. You might take a size 8 in one
dress and a 6 in another. Most long dresses are strapless, halters or
have spaghetti straps and if the top does not fit right you could have
an embarrassing moment at the prom. If you do get the dress Online you
can always take it to a tailor that does alterations. You can usually
find them at dry cleaners or just look in the Yellow Pages under
