Prom dress shopping is super exciting and fun. You know, when you can actually find a dress in your size!
We all know finding a killer prom dress is hard as it is. But finding a killer prom dress as a plus girl is damn near impossible! It isn’t anything us plus ladies can’t handle, thought. I mean, we deal with difficult shopping excursions on the regular, not just at prom season. We got this, ladies!
Allow me to make it a little easier for you to find your plus-size dream dress — or at least start thinking about what styles you want your curves to rock on the big night! Whether it’s glitzy and glamorous or funky and fresh, I’ve got you covered. Check out these 9 shops that will help you start (or end!) your almost impossible prom dress hunt.
