Dear Fashion Girl,
It's almost time for Prom and I have no idea what I'm going to wear! I'm a full-figured girl and I don't like showing my underarms. What kind of dress is there left for me to wear?
Prom is such an exciting event and I know you’ll want to look your best! Not hard to do because there are tons of dress options available for every body type.
Check out websites such as Sydney's Closet, Alight, and The Rose Dress – all sites specialize in clothes for curvy girls and have gorgeous Prom dresses to choose from! If you don't want to shop online you can
gather ideas from the sites and draw inspiration from them to take shopping with you!
To hide your underarms you can add a chic shrug or capelet to your look. If your sewing skills are up to par visit Modest Prom and learn how to make your own bolero or shrug. If shopping is more your specialty then head to Windsor to see their selection of silk, knit, and lace shrugs. You may also find formal dresses that come with beaded jackets or sleeves, like the Galaxy Dress ($199) from Sydney's Closet (above left) or this Sweetheart Neckline Short Dress ($174) from Alight (above right). Plus, there are a ton of full-length options at The Rose Dress. I fell in love with the so-romantic dress by IGIGI ($192), pictured left. The black lace over the pink gown is absolutely enchanting, no?
Don’t be discouraged if you don’t find the perfect dress right away. It takes a while to find the right look no matter what your body type. Just have fun with it and know that you are going to look amazing! Think about Jennifer Hudson – how confident is she on the red carpet?! Channel that confidence and you’ll look as stunning as a Hollywood starlet! --Angel
