There’s really no such thing as THE perfect dress. How can I say this? Think about it. It’s very rare for two people to wear the same dress at a single event. It’s even rarer for a dress to look as good on one girl as another. If the perfect dress existed, we’d all be wearing the exact same thing and all look the exact same way and that’s something I don’t ever see happening.
So the best thing to do is just look for the the right dress. How do you find the right dress? Well it all depends on you.
You should wear the right kind of dress for your body. Don’t go for the tightest and the shortest thinking it will be the most attractive. The dress has to fit and fall nicely to make you look your best.
You should be comfortable in your dress. If a dress looks good on you but it’s obvious that you’re not comfortable wearing it, it will show and instead of looking fab, you might end up looking drab. If you can walk, play foxybingo, dance and skip with the dress you’re picking, then that’s got to be a really comfortable dress.
The dress you wear should emphasize your best assets and take the attention away from areas you need to work on. Shades can make you look slimmer, specially darker shades. Colors also play a role in how a dress fits you, specially with your skin color. Pick a dress that works with your skin. Another thing to look at is the design. Vertical lines and designs on the fabric can also have a similar effect and may also help you look taller so it’s a good idea to take that into consideration.
Another thing to consider is material. You’ll want a dress that stretches fine, specially if you’ll be moving around a lot or dancing. Nobody wants to see a tear in a nice dress. You also want something that is comfortable. Some fabrics can be itchy on the skin so avoid those.
Now, as with everything else, too much is never good. Don’t overdo it on designs and fabrics. Don’t overplay your assets. Keeping it nice, sweet and simple is always the best way to go.
