Embrace Your Curves: Plus-Size Prom Dress Shopping Tips

Prom season is an exciting time for high school students, but for us plus-size girlies, finding the perfect dress can sometimes feel daunting. At Ivory & Main, we believe that every body is beautiful, and shopping for your prom dress should be a fun celebration of your unique curves and personal style. Here are some body-positive tips to help you find the perfect plus-size prom dress and feel confident and fabulous on your special night:

1. Know Your Measurements: At the beginning of your dress shopping journey take accurate measurements of your bust, waist, hips, and inseam. This will help you determine your size and ensure a proper fit when trying on dresses. Our stylists at Ivory & Main Curvy Corner Boutique will do this for you to make sure that the dress you love is ordered in the perfect size to fit your beautiful curves.

2. Embrace Your Body Shape: Celebrate your curves and embrace your body shape. Whether you're an hourglass, pear, apple, or rectangle, there's a prom dress style that will accentuate your best features and make you feel stunning. Our stylists at Ivory & Main will introduce you to every style of dress to ensure you find the one that makes you feel the most confident!

3. Focus on Comfort: Prioritize comfort when choosing your prom dress. Look for fabrics that feel soft and breathable against your skin, and opt for styles that allow you to move and dance with ease throughout the night.

4. Accentuate Your Assets: Highlight your favorite features by choosing a prom dress that accentuates them. Whether it's a plunging neckline, a cinched waist, or a high-low hemline, play up your assets and show off what makes you feel confident and beautiful.

5. Experiment with Colors and Prints: Don't be afraid to experiment with bold colors and playful prints. Step out of your comfort zone and choose a prom dress that reflects your personality and makes a statement. Remember, there are no rules when it comes to fashion, so have fun with your choices! Check out our blog about prom dress color psychology to see which color you think matches your personality best.

6. Ignore Size Labels: Remember that size is just a number and doesn't define your worth or beauty. Focus on how the dress looks and feels on your body, rather than the size label. Every body is unique, and what matters most is finding a dress that makes you feel amazing. Besides, formalwear sizes run small and even vary between designers. It really is just a number and doesn't define your beauty. Your stylists will make sure that your dress is ordered in the best size for your beautiful body. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and beautiful on your prom day.

7. Bring Supportive Friends or Family: Bring supportive friends or family members with you when shopping for your prom dress. Surround yourself with positivity and encouragement, and choose people who will uplift you and celebrate your beauty.

8. Practice Self-Love and Confidence: Above all, practice self-love and confidence throughout your prom dress shopping journey. Embrace your curves, celebrate your uniqueness, and remember that you are worthy of feeling beautiful and confident in whatever dress you choose.

9. Find A Store That Celebrates Your Curves: At Ivory & Main Curvy Corner Boutique, we understand that the thought of shopping for a prom dress can be daunting for many young women, especially those with curves.
