Try choosing materials which suits our body so that it does not expose any particular part sluggishly.

If you have sexy legs, you may want to shop high lows prom dresses with front split skirts; if you want to show off your shoulder, consider off-shoulder prom dresses, or one-shoulder prom dresses; On the other hand, you might hesitate to show butterfly arms, in this case you may consider prom dresses with a jacket or scarf. A prom dress with jacket gives you a more matured appearance too.

3. Choosing the right color:

Bright and light colors give a slimmer appearance when wear paired with dark colors. For example, a white colored top paried with a black skirt will look very flattering. Try choosing solid colors instead of a mix of many colors, go for large patterns over small patterns as it draws attention to troublesome parts.

4. Less is more:

The principle applies to plus size prom dress shopping as well. Simplicity is very important for plus sized clothes. Don’t go for too much beadings, spangles, embroideries, ruches, etc. Avoid shinny printed pattern prom dresses. Prints prom dresses tend to use complex mix of colors and patterns.
