Finding The Right Plus Size Prom Dress – Part II

Prom is just around the corner and all that this means is that teenagers have to find just the right dress for that special night. Every high school holds its own prom night each year and this night is very special for all teenagers. Because this night is so important, everyone wants to look their sharpest during the party and this is where the search for finding the right prom dress starts.

As everybody knows by now, girls are the ones who are more interested in look good for prom night and not boys. Boys usually tend to just buy or rent a suit and tie. While looking for a prom dress might sound like a fun time, this isn’t always the case. Especially since every teenager wants their dress to be special.

Surprisingly, even though the demand is very big there aren’t that many retailers which provide customers with plus size prom dresses. This is actually upsetting many people since this trend forces many teenagers to have and acquire their dresses from speciality shops.

Gladly, there are online retailers who offer a huge range of plus size prom dresses. This way, teenagers are not limited to only buying plus sized dresses from speciality shops or even to go through the hassle of tailoring their own dresses. While designing their own dresses brings many advantages such as having a truly unique dress which fits perfectly. The downside to this is that designing and creating your own dress is pretty expensive. The parents or the teenager have to acquire a special tailor which is experienced and is able to create complex dress designs, and tailors like this charge a lot of money.

According to a recent survey, high school teenagers are quite frustrated by the fact that they aren’t able to find plus sized dresses around their local area. Usually, all local shopping malls have their own prom dress specific shops but these shops aren’t known for having some of the most beautiful designs. Usually, plus sized dresses are designed not to hug the body and instead to tent it. This is rather annoying since these dresses look baggy and it’s simply not a good fit for anyone.

Nonetheless, because we know that prom is an important night for every teenager. We need to advise all teenagers that they shouldn’t get frustrated over the fact that they can’t find enough plus sized dresses and just try to have fun. In the end, that’s what really matters.

Celebrity Inspired Prom Fashion by Guest Contributor Tiffany Ly

Ready or not, prom season is almost upon us, so it’s time to get ready for a knockout look! Let’s face it; looking good isn’t enough and you want a dress that’s dazzling and will show your very best.

Honestly, what better way to score a fashion knockout (on the big night) than with a dress that’s designed for one of Hollywood’s hottest stars? 

If the thought of “making the scene” in a Hollywood star inspired dress is something you’ve always wished for, this is the post for you.

The selections below emulate dresses worn this year by the hottest and most beautiful stars, including Rihanna, Kerry Washington and Anne Hathaway.



This year at the 2013 Grammy Awards, pop star Rihanna had the crowd under her spell as she graced the Red Carpet in a stunning Azzedine Alaia custom made evening gown while wearing a bold, red lipstick.

This gorgeous floor length dress features a long, sweeping length that flows in the back (like a wedding train.)  The sleeveless dress also featured a crisscross design (across the front) with a revealing sheer chiffon section on the midriff.  This dress is a stunner!  Take a look at the similar style here by David’s Bridal

Kerry Washington is another Hollywood beauty who lit up the Red Carpet this season, making a major impact in a glowing Miu Miu floor length dress that featured a coral sheath style bottom with a glittering sleeveless top.

This mirrored dress of the Django Unchained star was feminine and flattering. All you need is the red clutch (similar style here by Nina Shoes) and flawless makeup to pull off a Kerry Washington look! The clutch will definitely compliment your outfit especially with the silver clasp.


Darling Anne Hathaway, who took home an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress at the 85th Academy Awards in February for her role in “Les Miserables, ” was a big winner on the Red Carpet as well. Hathaway wore a sleek column style gown designed by Prada in a very feminine shade of light pink.

The gown played beautifully off her stylish short hair style and showed off her shimmering earrings. With this replicated dress (here) you would certainly look like a gem.
