It’s never too soon to start thinking about your prom dress. So whether you’re in year seven and dreaming ahead or in your final year and ready to begin prom dress shopping, here are some things you need to know.
Before even stepping foot in a store, do your homework. Window shopping online and styles and colours for dresses you like will help massively when you’re ready to begin prom dress shopping. Read magazines to see what’s trending and base your ideas on an accumulation of what appeals to your taste. When you step into a shop like Fairytale Endings Dresses, there are so many dresses that it can often become overwhelming. Focusing your choice on a pre-planned selection of dresses will help you know what you’re looking for and make the buying process quicker – you’ll also often get first dibs on the dress of your dreams.
Use Pinterest and Instagram to store dresses you like in your itinerary to show our team and they will do their best to match to something similar we have in store.
Know your size and body shape
Since there is not one single standardised size for all prom dress designers, choosing the right size can be challenging. The majority of prom dress designers use slim-fitting sizes so it may differentiate from your everyday clothing sizes. Dress size and jean size are not the same, so don’t be alarmed if you are a size 6 in jeans and a size 10 in prom gowns.
We have size guides for each of our designers found on their website page, so take a look to guide your decision.
Finding the right dress to suit your body type is also very important. Are you pear shaped, petite, large chested or hour glassed? These things will influence how each dress falls on you. Investigate what works well for each body type before beginning your prom dress shopping process. Take a look at our blog on this for more information.
Take some assistance
Prom dress shopping isn’t the best when you’re on your own and it’s always good to ask for some help. Bringing a parent, a friend or a family member is a great way of getting different opinions and finding the best dress for you. Your loved ones will be able to tell you what looks right for you and guide you through the prom dress shopping experience. Often a different set of eyes will be able to suggest colours of styles that you may not of considered originally.
Of course, our staff are always on hand to help guide you through the trying-on process and help find the perfect dress for you. We work with you to make sure you find the dress of your dreams, recommend hairstyles and choose the perfect accessories.
