Homecoming can be a magical time for women–if you’re the queen. If you’re just a regular girl, Homecoming can be a stressful time–finding the perfect shoes, the perfect dress and of course the perfect date! Even if you’re the anti-establishment type, missing your high school Homecoming dance will haunt you forever. Like it or not, it’s one of those iconic moments in your life. Cue the awkward photo in your foyer, right?
First things first, you need to find the perfect dress! And since we all aren’t size zero supermodels this often means shopping to flatter your particular body type. This means, hiding your less flattering features but showing off the ones that you love! And trust us, as an 18 year-old, you have to learn to love your body now because it’s only downhill from here! And it’s never too early to start looking for dresses for fall. There are often great deals to be had over the summer.
If you have a slender figure, you’ll want to look for a prom dress that will show off your lean bod–you ladies are the ones that have it easy! Something small and sexy will do just fine!
For ladies with boyish figures, you’ll want to accentuate your curves! Think dresses that cinch at the waist or ones with a little padding in the bust area to give you a boost.
If you have an hourglass shape, you’re in luck–there is nothing sexier and dresses are usually made for you ladies. But that doesn’t mean you can stop searching for the perfect dress! Highlight your curves with a dress that is fitted throughout the top waist.
If you’re a pear body type, you’ll want to emphasize what you’ve got going on above the waist.
