Prom Dress Shopping Should Be Fun

So, today you get to see a picture of me in high school.  Ready?

Yep, me (in the middle) in a prom dress.  Only, my dress wasn’t originally a prom dress – it was a maid of honor dress my mom wore that we had altered.  As a plus size girl, I didn’t really have a lot of choices when picking my dress.  Local stores didn’t carry a lot of plus size options.  Plus, this was 2001, and online shopping was still relatively new.

My younger sisters, however, are much luckier than I am.  They’ve had a lot more choices.  It’s much easier to find stylish plus-size dresses now than it was 13 years ago.  They have choices on the color, neckline, length…and dressfirst.com is a great place to look.

Seriously – where were these guys when I was picking a dress?  Take a look at the great options they have!

All I did was click on “Prom Dresses,” and 750 options came up.  723 of them are available in plus size – a very different picture from my prom days!  They also let you narrow down the options by countless things – neckline, length, fabric, color, price, silhouette – the options are really endless.

Right now, they’re running a sale, and many of their gowns are anywhere from 40-55% off, with free shipping.  You can customize most of the dresses to a host of different colors, which really makes this company unique.  You want an orange dress?  Done.  You want silver?  You just found out your arch-nemesis is wearing blue?  You can pick your dress color accordingly.  It definitely ensures your dress will be one of a kind, and no one will have your dress!  Dressfirst does recommend getting a color swatch before ordering the dress to make sure it’s what you want.  You know how special occasion dresses are – made just for you!  They also allow an extra inch in the seams just in case you need alterations!

It makes me want to go buy a prom dress.  Anyone want me to chaperone a prom?
