Ball gowns are traditionally reserved for the most sophisticated of events so it is only fitting that they wear well and look great during this year’s prom or homecoming
Tips for Choosing the Right Ball Gown for Prom or Homecoming
Prom ball gowns typically consist of full-length skirts with exposed décolletages, with optional extra voluminous ruffling, gathering dresses, or multi-layered tulle skirt styling. However if you are looking for a little more swag, you may want to go all the way by pairing your gown with Cinderella slips or petticoats.
While ball dresses tend to be straight across, with or without a strapless sweetheart neckline, many contemporary fashion designers have begun designing ball gowns with cap sleeves or high illusion neck lines. These new styles enhance the “royal look” of these ball dresses dramatically, and add an extra level of sophistication that has become popular in today’s ball gowns.
Most often, ball gowns will have a corset lace-up back which will accentuate a healthy looking natural waistline, no matter your body type.
