In our Cannock prom shop we get so many girls who come in with a fixed idea in their mind of the perfect prom dress and end up walking away with something totally different! Why is that?
Well, most professional photo shoots of prom dresses involve an army of stylists, hair and make up artists and clever lighting along with skinny super tall models and many tricks of the trade to make the dresses look amazing, not to mention touch ups with photoshop afterwards. What you see is not always what you get and an amazing picture can be very good at persuading you to buy.
The best way to find the perfect prom dress for you is to keep an open mind, especially if, as with most prom girls, this is the first full length dress you have ever bought or even tried on.
Try on many different styles and colours and be guided by our knowledgeable staff as to what looks good, they really have seen it all before and can help you a lot with what looks flattering for your figure type.
Try not to have too fixed an idea of what prom dress style you want and be prepared to change your mind, thats a good thing sometimes! Also do not be too hung up on the label size – the best size prom dress for you is the one that fits you properly and prom dresses can run small or large, fit varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and there is no such thing as standard sizing. Alterations should be expected in most cases as they are part of a perfect fit with formal clothing.
The good thing is at Celebrity we have hundreds of prom dresses in stock ready for you to try on, so you can try all the styles and make sure you get the perfect prom dress thats right for YOU.
