Prom is just around the corner and finding a dress can be a difficult task. Sometimes, online shopping can result in dresses not fitting correctly or even designs that are not the same as the pictures on the website.  To make this task easier, below are some of the best ways to find high-quality and affordable prom dresses for this year’s dance.

1) Make sure the dress can be returned.

You do not want to buy a dress online, find out it does not fit, and have to keep it. Dresses can be expensive, and you want to make sure you love your dress before settling.

2) Look at the website’s sizing guide

Every dress fits slightly differently depending on the company, so be sure to compare your measurements to the suggested ones before ordering.  Having to alter a dress can sometimes become more expensive than the dress itself.

3) Examine the dress with the zoom function to make sure you like the material

Although at times the material can look and feel cheap when it arrives, most of the time that problem can be avoided with a thorough online examination of the picture.

4) Compare dresses from many websites to make sure you are getting the best deal

Sometimes dresses from different stores can look very similar, but can be drastically different prices.  Try to find the best and most affordable dress possible by not limiting your search to one store.

 

Also, many stores have in-store options that are perfect for those who would rather try their dress on first before buying it.  These include David’s Bridal, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Lord and Taylor, and BCBG.  If you want to look online, some of the best options are Prom Girl, Revolve, Fame and Partners, Lulus, Tobi, and Jovani. Good luck shopping!
