Your prom dress is something you’ll likely remember for the rest of your life. Instead of hitting the regular stores in town, you might want to check out the dress options online. Prom websites often have hundreds or thousands of different styles and a wider range of sizes than you’ll find in brick-and-mortar stores. But before you order, get out a measuring tape and make sure you know all of your measurements, then compare them to the site’s and the designer’s size chart. That way you can avoid pesky returns, with any luck. A couple of online prom sites seem to sell knock-offs, but we won’t mention their names here. Instead, check out these reputable prom retailers for a look that’s sure to be memorable and original.
eDressit has more than ten years prom dress designing experience that carries thousands of dresses. You can narrow your choice down by occasions, colors, price (which is especially helpful. eDressit also offer beautiful formal dresses for mothers and wedding occasions. What I should mention especially, is that the dresses from eDressit self-design are really super in quality. It has style gallery, showing diverse customer looks. Very pretty and practical.
02, Prom Girl
You can guess by the name that Prom Girl caters to the high schooler seeking a fab prom gown, but this e-retailer also stocks homecoming, quinceanera, sweet 16, and other special occasion dresses. Prom Girl has a superstore in Secaucus, New Jersey, but it also has hundreds of styles on its website, which you can browse by style, color, and designer. Prom Girl stocks dresses from petite to plus, so no matter what size you are, it will have a selection for you to choose from.
03, David’s Bridal
Don’t let the name fool you. David’s Bridal has an entire section dedicated to prom and homecoming dresses, and David’s specializes in taking the hottest trends and making them affordable. From high-low hems to ombre to embellished necklines, David’s Bridal is sure to cater to the whim of every prom-goer. David’s is also a good source for clutches and prom jewelry. Accessorizing a dress is often the hardest part of putting together a prom look, but David’s Bridal makes it easy-peasy.
04, Unique Vintage
For the girl who turns her nose up at trends and gets her fash-inspiration from her grandmother (and great-grandmother’s) teen years, there’s Unique Vintage. From drop-waist flapper-esque frocks to flirty ’50s flare skirts and retro accessories, you can find something from the ’20s through the ’70s. But these gowns aren’t resale. They’re vintage-inspired, so you’re getting a new gown with modern fabrics and sizing.
You might like how vintage dresses look, but you’re not so keen on the polyester material and the fact that it may have been sitting in a grandma’s closet for the last 40 years. For mini-dresses that are retro-inspired but made by today’s manufacturers, browse the selection at ModCloth. This online retailer mostly carries dresses with a shorter hem and has a whole section dedicated to party frocks. Its inventory changes daily, so keep checking back during prom season if something doesn’t catch your eye on your first visit. ModCloth also offers some awesome retro-inspired shoes, so you could potentially find your whole prom look on this site.
No matter which site you choose, remember, the best dress is the one fit you most. Also, pay attention to the details. Need more help, write a letter to their customer service. Good luck.
