If this is your senior year, one of the big things you might be looking forward to is prom. Prom dresses might be on the top of your list because you want to look and feel your best. It's in your best interest to not wait until the very last minute and end up with any prom dress fails.
If you want to avoid any embarrassing situations keep reading to learn the top 5 prom dress fails to avoid.
1. Buy From a Reputable Store
Whether you buy online or in-person buy from a store with a good reputation. You can find beautiful prom gowns online and avoid the nightmares others have dealt with from buying on the internet as long as you do your due diligence when it comes to checking their reviews.
Thankfully, when people have a bad experience with an online store, they will more than likely leave a review. If you see multiple bad reviews from one place, take this as a warning sign and shop somewhere else.
2. Don't Wait Until Last Minute
The last thing you want is to wait for the same week to figure out what you will be wearing to prom. Even waiting until the same month can be cutting it close. Give yourself enough time to try on your dress and take into consideration any alterations you might need to get done.
Believe it or not, 20% of adults are chronic procrastinators - don't be one of them.
3. Don't Make Your Own Dress
Unless you have experience with dress patterns and are great at using a sewing machine, don't venture into making your own prom dress. This is not the best time to try to learn how to make a formal gown.
If you have done formal dresses in the past and feel super comfortable with your skills, then start way ahead of time to give yourself enough time just in case you decide that it's better to buy one instead.
4. Be Careful With Your Makeup
This prom dress fail is for the day of your prom. If you plan on doing your makeup before putting your dress on, then figure out ahead of time if you can slip your dress up from your feet instead of going over your head. If you have no option but to pull your dress over your head then you can use a t-shirt or thin sheet to create a barrier between your face and your dress.
