Prom Dresses 2017

Proms and balls are an integral part of our lifestyle. They are enjoyable occasions to meet and have some fun together. You never know who you catch in the end of the day. Pick the right dress for your next ball to get the attention you deserve. Here are some cool dresses for this season.


Two French friends of mine said once that “It´s easy for you to choose a dress, as you have Americans have such great looking bodies with female curves!” That made me laugh, but when you think about it, it´s actually true. Most of us have a hourglass or busty body type, so we look great in formal dresses too. Still, I think it is always as hard to choose the optimal dress. There are so many alternatives available.

Yes, we look good in most dresses, but it´s always about finding the Absolutely Coolest one!

Anyways, whatever type of dress you are looking for, make sure you get a dress made in the US, or a dress that is at least intended for the US market. If you order in overseas online shops, you risk wasting your cash and may get disappointed, big time.  You know most of us have more a less an hourglass body type with a well-developed bust. The selection available in the US stores is adapted to this. The same does not apply to foreign stores.

Even if a dress bought abroad seems to be your size, it may not fit you at all. Why is that? It can simply be designed for a body type we seldom have. A dress made for a woman with an apple, pear or slender type of body does not look good on a busty American woman. Clearly, it is a good idea to look for a dress in the US stores, rather than order a dress from a foreign online store.

Luckily, we have nearly an unlimited selection of fabulous dresses available in the stores all over the Country. Here are a few great alternatives you may want to consider:
