The Perfect Prom Dress to Flatter Your Figure

There are tons of prom dresses that look great on a hangar. But you’re looking for one that you can fall in love with, makes you look amazing, and flatters your figure. Here are some tips on finding silhouettes that flatter specific body types:

 

Petite

A fun short dress with a flared skirt and fitted bodice will fill out your small frame and add the illusion of an hourglass figure. In the Mac Duggal Prom, After 5 and Ieena collections, you can find dresses that are perfect for your body shape!

If you are looking for the illusion of appearing taller, be sure to view the mermaid gowns in our Prom, Flash, and Cassandra Stone collections. Mermaid dresses give you a shaped silhouette with a fitted bodice, and the dramatic hemlines elongate the body.

Tall

Walk tall with confidence and show your amazing figure off! The soft gathering of a rouched dress keeps you from looking too thin and long. You could also find a short dress from our Prom Collections which will be sure to reveal your long legs. A high leg slit or high-low dress will give you the perfect accent to your frame. Show off your best feature with a dress that accentuates your legs and makes you walk tall! Or elongate your midriff even more with a gorgeous two piece dress. The amazing designs in our Mac Duggal Prom Collection will flatter any tall girl.

Curvy

Your curves are what make you unique,and a perfect form fitting dress is what you need to make your night truly special. A diagonal or one shoulder strap will add more support so you can show of your bare shoulder with confidence. Several styles in the Fabulouss collection do exactly that, and give you the all-around support for dancing throughout the night.

 

An empire waistline draws the perfect amount of attention to your slim waist, while also creating an emphasis on your beautiful curves. A simple draped fabric of the skirt falls over your curves to increase confidence and comfort. Many empire style gowns are available in our Ball Gown collection and also all of the Mac Duggal Prom collections.

Apple (Full Figured- Fuller Bust line)

An apple shape describes women who are typically “top heavy,” meaning that they have a wide torso, broad shoulders, and a fuller bust and waist. Apple shape figures generally want to draw attention to their bust and away from their mid-section. It’s important to wear dresses that flow from underneath the bust, expanding at the waist. Draped or ruched gathers that lie flat across your middle will work wonders without adding too much extra volume. A gorgeous empire waist dress is the perfect choice for a girl who is an apple shape.

Pear (Full Figured- Bigger Bottom Line)

Pear shaped body figures are recommended to have a tighter fitting bodice with a skirt that flares outward. A gown with an intricate neckline and a high waist put the spotlight on your sexy upper half.

 

Find a dress that floats over your hips. There are many different variations of dresses that flatter a pear shaped body figure. These type of dresses create a slimming look, with just the right amount of sex appeal.

Sheath

The sheath style evening gown, like the usual sheath dress is designed to fit the body tightly. It can be belted or unbelted, and has a straight drape. It can have shoulder straps or be strapless. This style dress can be perfect for any body shape and can be worn for a more simplistic and modest look.

Princess

A princess style dress is the most traditional prom dress that we have many variations of in the Ball gown collection. This style of dress can make anyone and any body shape feel like royalty on their special night.

 

The A-line style evening gown is close-fitting at the top and gradually widens at the bottom, without gathers or pleats. A- line dresses are commonly simple but often attract attention with its elegant appearance. There is an A-line dress for every body shape in both our Prom and Fabulouss collections.

Dropped Waist

The waistline is dropped below the actual waistline. This style dress is generally worn to elongate the waist and create a slim look. The skirt can be fitted or flared. This style can be worn by any body type!

Trumpet

If the evening gown is trumpet shaped, it is tight fitting until it reaches the mid thigh or the knees, where it flares. The difference between mermaid and trumpet style prom gowns is that the mermaid gown hugs your body all the way to the knees before it fans out. Trumpet prom dresses are fitted through the hips to mid thigh and then flair a bit less severely. This dress style is best for tall, curvy, and peared shaped body types.

Mermaid

Mermaid, as the name suggests, means that the evening gown is form fitting around the bodice and flares out towards the bottom. This style was made to resemble a mermaid’s silhouette and flatter multiple body types.
