2. DRESS THE PART: Wear the undergarments and any hosiery that you'll wear the night of prom. That way you'll get a real sense of what the dress will look like on your big night.
3. BRING A SMALL FANCLUB: Don't go shopping with a big group. Pick one close friend to give you her honest opinion, or bring your mom who you know will always tell you the truth.
4. SAVE MONEY: If you buy a dress in stock (rather than special ordering it) it'll be much cheaper. And if you buy a model from last year or a sample dress, you'll save in the long run. Plus, keep an eye out for "Trunk Shows"--there are typically discounts there.
6. BEWARE OF ONLINE DEALS: While you can find a good deal on the web, some online stores can be misleading. Buy from a reputable store, such as eDressit UK stores, Germany stores you live near by, or one you've used before. If the dress seems too good to be true, you might not be getting a bargain--you might end up with a cheaply made knock-off that's the wrong size and color!
Good luck shopping, CG!s!
