Traditionally, girls wear long prom dresses that are ankle length or maybe a little longer to prom. These days that trend has started to fade. The short prom dress is now accepted as a stylish choice for the prom. This type of dress can look just as elegant and classy as a longer dress and just as much attention should be given when choosing them. You want to look beautiful in your dress but being comfortable is also important.

When looking for a prom dress, keep in mind not everyone can wear the same type of dress. Each girl is shaped differently, so it’s important to find a prom dress that fits your own unique shape. Some of the different body types are athletic, hourglass, and pear shape.

A short prom dress for a person who has an athletic shape is perfect because it accentuates their muscular legs. The athletic body type tends to be square at the shoulders so spaghetti straps work nicely. If you are shaped like an hourglass, then your curves would be the main focus. Almost any style dress looks nice on this body type, but a halter top dress is a perfect choice. As for the pear shape, try a dress that is more fitted at the top and waist then flows out at the bottom.

A baby doll dress or an A line fits this type well. And just because plus size girls may be somewhat hippy and busty, that doesn’t mean that they can’t look nice in a short prom dress too. If you just stick to the rules of accentuating your good assets and playing down your not so great ones, these types of dresses will always look great.
