Hi - I really need your help. Most of the prom dresses I like are too expensive for me, can you suggest any shops or ways of finding a gorgeous dress at an inexpensive price?
Thanks for your message. Have you thought of hiring a dress? There are many shops around which do hire prom dresses - so you can usually get an expensive dress at very low cost. The downside is of course that you have to return it after the prom - but hiring is definitely worth considering if you want a gorgeous dress at low cost.
I want a prom dress which is a corset at the top and big at the bottom. Preferably ivory with a pale flower print on the corset - do you know of anything like this?
Please keep looking in our Prom Dress Catalogue - we are getting more designers and manufacturers showing their gowns on this site all the time, and if you haven't found what you want yet, it may be on the site soon! Remember also, when you are looking at the pictures, try to ignore the colour and concentrate on the style - the outfit you want may be shown already in say red, and may be available in the colours you want. We normally show a photo of a style just once, in one sample colour, even if it is available in many colours.
Recently, I visited your web site, only to find there are no Prom Dress shops outside of England. As I live in Scotland, I found it rather unfair that I was unable to use your web site which seemed useful for England. Please can you adapt your web site to allow the rest of the UK to enjoy its uses.
Thanks for your message. We are trying to expand our web site for users in the rest of the UK, and we do now have some shops listed in Scotland and Wales. However, we are dependent on shops contacting us and wanting to advertise with us, and some of the Scottish ones have been a little slow to approach us - if you know of any good prom dress suppliers in your area, let us know and we will contact them.
My Prom is next year and I'm going with
this really nice guy, but I can't find a dress! I need your help. I
would like a boob tube with quite a short skirt - white, black or red in
size 12 or 14.
I have bought my daughter a great prom dress today in the sale at Fab Frocks in Westbourne, Bournemouth. They don't appear to be listed on your site?
I am sure they are worth a mention, especially as you have no Dorset listings yet. We did look on your site first and were disappointed you had no one in Dorset.
After receiving your message, we did contact Fab Frocks, and they are now listed on our site, so many thanks for your suggestion! We now also have several other shops listed in Dorset as well.
I need your help. I can't find the right shoes to wear to my prom! I am going with my boyfriend and he is a little bit shorter than I am, so I was going to wear flats but I can't seem to find any anywhere!! Help!!
Thanks for your message. Have you tried the new accessory section on our web site? There is a shoe manufacturer listed there, and they do flat shoes (there are lots of pictures of them on their web site). They also have stockists all over the UK (see the stockist list on their web site). Good luck!
Help! My prom is in May next year, and I'm really worried about the style of dress I am going to wear. I'm really skinny and flat chested. I'm size 6 and all of the dresses I have tried on are really baggy and don't flatter me at all! I look really young, but I am 16! What style of dress would you recommend for me? I'm not into big puffy Cinderella dresses, but I quite like the idea of a long, slinky dress. What do you suggest? Thank you, Emma
Here is my story about my dream dress! From about the age of 11, or maybe younger, I have always wanted the pretty dress with the ribbon at the back which you tie up, and with a tight fitting top and a flowing skirt.
Then I watched the film 'Cinderella Story', and I had my dream dress in my mind from that point on!
My Mum started going on about the fact that I was only going to wear it once, it would be very expensive, and so I was on a low. Then I came onto your website, and looked for dresses in Gloucestershire, and there was a link to the website of a shop called qpid showgirl - and that's when I found the dress! It was just like the Cinderella story dress, but even had the tie up back AND at a low price. So I found my dream dress and I can't wait until my prom!
I think you should mention www.thinkuknow.co.uk and online safety on your web site. Many teenagers use your site, and by mentioning 'thinkuknow', it will encourage them to stay safe online. Thank you, Nikki.
Hello Nikki, and thanks for your message. We think it's a great suggestion, as we want everyone to stay safe. So here is the link again - just click on this link for lots of useful tips on using the internet safely: www.thinkuknow.co.uk
My prom is in May next year, and I have a design and colour that I really like for my prom dress. Where can I find someone who could make it for me, but without paying too much?
Have a good look in the prom dress directory section of this site - there are quite a few advertisers there who are willing to make dresses to your own design. If there isn't one close to you, try looking in a neighbouring area - when you find someone, just give them a ring - I am sure they will be willing to help.
My prom is in July and there is no dress that fits me. I'm a size 6 and I'm into the long slim ones. My friends are all wearing puffed out ones, so I want to stand out. What do you think?
This year, girls seem to be choosing both the full skirted dresses and the long straight ones, so you should be able to wear either - whichever you feel more comfortable with. As for the size, you should be able to find plenty of size 6's around now. A couple of years ago, they were very hard to get hold of, but now most suppliers have woken up to the demand for beautiful long dresses in small sizes. Most of the small shops listed in our dress directory now stock them, so have a look for one near you and give them a ring.
I'm worried about my prom dress because I'm only just a size six, and I'm worried I might not be able to find one to fit. Also, I want a chocolate brown halter neck and I've looked everywhere. I can't find one, and I don't want to have one made. Help!!!
Try the Linzi Jay page in the Prom Dress Catalogue on this site. They do a couple of halter neck styles, and I happen to know that they do a chocolate brown colour in their range. Attire also do some very nice halter neck gowns. If you like their styles, go to the prom dress directory and start ringing the shops listed there in your area - tell them you have seen the dress on the promdress.co site, and ask if they can order one for you.
