The Ultimate Guide to Buying Plus Size Prom Dresses

When it comes to shopping for prom, you deserve a dress that makes you feel beautiful and confident. Whether you're looking for an elegant gown or something more fun and flirty, there is a plus size prom dress out there for every body type. We'll break down the latest trends in plus size prom dresses, colors, necklines, body types and styles so you can find the perfect dress for your special night.

Trends in Plus Size Prom Dresses

When searching for your perfect plus size prom dress, don't be afraid to get creative with color and style. Consider bold colors like bright red or royal blue. If you want something a bit more subtle, try muted earth tones like olive green or dusty rose. Floral prints are also popular this season - pick a light-colored floral pattern if your prom is during the day or opt for darker colors if it's after sunset. As far as silhouettes go, A-line and fit & flare styles are particularly flattering on fuller figures because they draw attention away from any problem areas while still highlighting curves in all the right places. Empire waistlines are also great options since they create an elongated look by cinching at the waist and flowing outward towards the hemline.


The key to finding the perfect neckline is understanding what looks best on your body type - whether that's a plunging V-neck or a halter top with beading detailing around the neckline. Sweetheart necklines look great on almost any figure since they hug curves without being too tight against them. For something a bit more daring than usual, consider an off-the-shoulder dress with ruffles along the neckline or a one shoulder dress that shows off your toned arms and shoulders.

Body Types & Styles

The way a dress fits is just as important as how it looks - make sure that whatever style you choose fits properly around your bust and waist while still allowing room to move around comfortably throughout the night. For petite figures, try an empire waist plus size prom dress that helps create an illusion of length without overpowering your frame; however, if you have an hourglass figure then show off those curves with an A-line silhouette that hugs your natural shape without making it look too bulky or boxy. Those with apple shapes should opt for flowy styles like wrap dresses that drape over their midsection rather than cling tightly to it; whereas pear shaped figures should emphasize their upper halves with two piece gowns featuring fitted bodices and flared skirts or A-line styles with embellished bodices that draw attention up from their bottom half.

No matter what style you choose, make sure it makes you feel beautiful inside and out! Don't forget accessories either - statement earrings will draw attention upwards while chunky heels will help elongate legs even further when paired with ankle length dresses.
