Prom Guide

Gather round, I've a life lesson to teach.

It's June, aka prom month. Most people only go to prom once, unless you are part of the extremely attractive & into younger people population, or the population where you go with every single relative in your family, the stress of prom will only plague you once in your life.

The thing about prom is that they never tell you what to expect in school. They simply tell you the date and time, and leave you to figure out the rest your self. Shitty, I know, but that's LIFE.

On the plus side of all this is that there are people like myself who, although preparing for their very own first promenade, will post advice to help you in your journey as well simply because we are just so giving and kind and caring. We are a rare breed, I do concurrrr *snobby British accent*

Here are some Prom Tips I've gathered for you boys and girls!


  1. A couple of days before your prom, you should call the company and ask all of the appropriate questions:
    • Get the name of the person you are talking to 
    • Get a confirmation number
    • Get an emergency contact #
    • Find out your driver’s name
    • Confirm addresses of all pick-ups & make sure there's enough time in-between! You don't want them to show up late, or to be rushed!


A dress that looks good on your best friend may not look good on you, just like a dress that looks good on you may not look good on m--Wait, let's be honest. That's EXTREMELY unlikely....but the point is, we all have different body types, therefore different designs work for us.

When searching for a dress it's very important to keep your body type in mind. There are dresses for all types:

 Slender: If you have a slim figure the illusion of curves can be acheived by drawing attention to
your bust line or a prom dress that bells out.  Also, you might try prom dresses that draw attention to your waist such as a wrap dress or one witha belt.
 Petite: If you are petite show a little leg and go with an asymmetrical hemline or a long fitted solid prom dress to make you appear taller.  Floor lengthball gowns tend to overwhelm your frame.  Long ruffles can also add the illusion of height.
 Hourglass: If you have an hour glass figure consider yourself lucky! You have a naturally well propotioned body with means you don't need to disguise any thing. Almost every style prom dress will flatter your figure. Have fun with it!
 Apple - For an apple shaped body prom dresses with an empire waist will help draw attention from your middle. Also a higher waist line means the prom dress may not be as tight in your problem area. If you have nice athletic legs, you might try to show them off by looking at shorter prom dresses.
 Busty - You can play up what you have by choosing from prom dresses with a gorgeous neckline; but look for prom dresses with fuller coverage so you can make sure you have adequate support.  If you would like to draw attention away from your chest; look for prom dresses that attracts the eye to the hem.
Pear Shapes - For pear shapes we recommend prom dresses with fitted tops and full or a-line skirts.  Or if you are comfortable with your larger behind, go for prom dresses that are a bit more form fitting.
