Whether you’re long and lean, curvy and petite, or anywhere else on the spectrum of body types, we get it: shopping for a formal dress can be tricky. Add prom to the equation and it’s even more tempting to throw in the towel and stay home in your comfiest sweats (But really…don’t do this). After all, you want to look amazing for the biggest dance for the year, and honestly, a less than perfect dress fit just won’t cut it.
Today, we’re specifically talking plus size prom dresses. From satin to chiffon, strapless to one shoulder, the Camille La Vie collection has plenty of options that effortlessly enhance curvy frames. As for silhouettes, mermaid and trumpet styles accentuate an apple or hourglass shape for a picture-perfect finish (we hope you like compliments!) Another fabulous option is an empire waist, which gathers higher on the midsection and provides a universally flattering fit.
Considering your neckline will be in full view from dining to dancing, choosing a well-fit style is key (and also because….selfies) Go classic with a strapless or tank dress, or opt for a halter or one shoulder for a more unique way to highlight gorgeous shoulders.
The cherry on top? Embellishments! Sequins, beading, rhinestones, applique…the options are plentiful. Keep your personal style in mind here; if you’re normally a simple jeans-and-tee gal, a glitter ballgown probably won’t be on your radar. However, a sleek column silhouette adorned with lace could be your fashion ticket. Always up for drama? Try head to toe sequins to mirror your more-is-more taste.
