Ball gowns have been a popular form of elegant evening wear since the 1700's. They are usually reserved for the most elegant and extravagant events. Ball Gowns are very fitted at the top of the dress through the waist. Ball gowns either have a hidden zipper or a lace up corset in the back. The bottom of the ball gown has a very full skirt usually enhanced by wearing a slip underneath it. Ball gowns are a very forgiving style in that they hide anything from a tummy to full hips. Ball gowns usually work best with girls who are average to a taller height because the style visually cuts the body in half.
