Yes, there are Prom Dresses for Big Girls

I am a bigger girl, and when my new boyfriend asked me to Prom I was dreading shopping for the right dress. I had that image in my head of the perfect dress, but I knew that it would be a challenge to find and maybe even out of my price range when I did find it.

I started shopping online, just to get an idea of what I could find in plus size prom dresses. I looked at the pages of good department stores and didn’t have much luck. I started looking at the pages for warehouse stores, where they had tons of dresses available in smaller sizes but when I got to my size, the variety and availability were seriously limited.

I started getting discouraged. We were getting closer to the big day, and I really needed to find a dress. And not just any old dress. Prom is a big deal and I wanted to look my best for my new boyfriend. I didn’t want time to run out and me have to go to my big prom night in something I didn’t love or that didn’t fit at all.

One day, I was looking for new stores and happened to find the dresses on They had a whole category for plus size prom dresses! I was nervous, but I clicked on it anyway. I was amazed to see that the category had loads of options, and they included sleeveless gowns and strapless and dresses with ruffles and with beautiful swirly skirts.

I started to get really excited. I narrowed it down to two; one a silver mermaid style and the other a strapless A-line with a cool swirly bottom. In the end, I chose the strapless dress. It cost a little more, but I really wanted a full skirt for dancing and I thought its lilac color would look better on me.

When my dress arrived, I was thrilled! The lilac color was exactly what I’d been expecting, and it fit perfectly. I looked great for my prom and I recommend this site for everyone that needs a plus size dress.
