May Wedding Dress saleHow to find the perfect prom dressHow often do you get to wear a perfect, jaw-dropping, glamorous dress?


We can help make your prom one of those nights!


It’s got to be super flattering, beautifully-fitted & the perfect match for your style.


So here’s some tips from our experts at The Cotswold Frock Shop - to help YOU find your perfect dress for prom!



Tip #1

Don’t leave it until the last minute!


You don’t want to end up making-do with a dress you don’t love, because you’ve run out of time.


And once you’ve found one you love, it might need some alterations to make it the perfect fit (like shortening the length, or around the bust).


So give yourself plenty of time! The Easter holidays are perfect for prom dress shopping.


And it gives you plenty of time to shop for your perfect accessories to go with it, and decide on your make-up & hair.



Tip #2

Know your own style


When you go into a shop – and there’s a million dresses to choose from – it can be hard to know where to start.


So get as much #promdress inspiration as you can (use our stunning dresses as inspiration too!)


You know your own style. You know what you love, and what isn’t really you.


You know whether you want all eyes on you, in a floor-length, backless red gown. Or whether an elegant, neutral-toned dress is more your thing.


Prom is SUCH a big night. We want to help you feel amazing & confident in your own skin.


So be true to yourself!


Go for a prom dress that matches your style & personality - and shows the world who you are.



Tip #3

What’s your colour?


Colour is SO important when it comes to prom dresses!


Because different colours mean different things, to different people.


What do you want your prom dress to say about you?


Bright red is bold & confident. Black is always sophisticated. White suggests simplicity & romance. Metallics are classic choices for party dresses. Bright colours stand out & draw attention, while gorgeous neutrals are chic & stylish.


And if you spend some time working this out before you go, then you can zone in on your top colour choices, once you start shopping!






Tip #4

Show off the bits you love


You want a super-flattering prom dress – but which style works best for your figure?


It’s all about finding the right cut & details to accentuate that parts of yourself that you like best.




-         If you’re an hourglass (lucky you!), go for styles that show off your waist. Look for v-necks & well-fitting tops to the dress, which will all look great on your body type.


-         If you’re slender, try very fitted styles to show off your long, lean frame. Or if you want to add curves to your look, you could try an empire waist, belted waist or asymmetric neckline.


-         If you’re an apple type (you typically carry weight through your middle) – try a style that shows off your legs! Full skirts also look amazing on apple shapes. Or go for a dress with detail around a scoop or square neck, to accentuate your upper body.


-         If you’re pear shape (with hips wider than your bust), the trick is to balance your silhouette. Add volume to the upper half of your body – strapless styles look incredible on pear shapes - and try a full or A-line style dress at the bottom.


-         And if you’re petite, try slim-fitting dresses that won’t swamp your gorgeous frame. V-necks & pleating will both help to elongate your silhouette (and high heels, of course!).


Of course - once you get out & try a few dresses on, you’ll start to get a feel for which styles you love best!



Tip #5

Shop smart for your prom dress!


First off – don’t forget your heels!


Take a pair with you (even if they’re not the ones you’ll wear on the night). You need to walk around in each dress you try on. The perfect dress HAS to be comfortable, and not just when you’re standing still.


And it’ll give you a better feel of how the dress will look!


Take someone with you that you trust, too. Not a whole bunch of people (honestly – all the opinions just get confusing!). But someone you can trust to help you find the right one.


And don’t forget to use expert advice – like you always get here at The Cotswold Frock Shop. We’ll help find the style that suits you best. And help you take your perfect prom dress home!
