3D Floral Plus Size Prom Dresses
What better way to channel your girly side than by wearing an oh-so feminine Prom dress with pretty 3D flowers in full bloom. We’re loving the idea of fresh petals on evening dresses for the texture and dimensions the buds add to any dressy fabric.

And bloom everywhere including on a gown’s neckline, bodice, waist, skirt and even trains of long formal dresses.

Corset Top Curvy Plus Prom Gowns: Cinched In
Start when you opt to wear a dress with a bodice constructed with visible corset boning. Don't worry! This isn’t your grandmother’s corset with the uncomfortable constraints that pinch your ribs and cinch your waistline.
These modern corsets are no longer hidden inside the dress. They’re now on the outside for everyone to see as a strong design statement with exposed boning on the bodice, and in some daring designs, exposed bra cups.
We’re crazy about the sexy almost lingerie-look that a faux bustier creates on the bodice of a Prom gown. The look also screams a girly vibe for a night when you want to flaunt the fact that you're dressing up like a Diva.
Best of all, a form-fitting corset top with exposed boning means your Prom gown accentuates your curves and shapes your full figure.
And remember, an exposed bone corset looks super sophisticated on any style of skirt: classic Aline, ball gown or slim, tight skirt.
Tiered Plus Size Prom Dresses: Layer Up
Let the crowd know instantly that you’re the modern Prom Princess who knows how to pump up the fun factor when you wear a plus size gown with a tiered skirt. The layers of fabric add a fun factor to the formal look of a full A-line skirt Look for ruffle trim on the hemline of the tiers to be a popular design detail for a Boho touch. Hems of tiered skirts trimmed in wide bands of horsehair create a flirty, fun look. For a sparkly fairy-tale effect, look for plus size tiered Prom gowns sewn in layers of glitter tulle.
Plus Size Simple Prom Dresses: Minimalist Look Maximum Impact
For a truly elegant look at Prom 2024, stick with a dress that stuns the crowd with its simplicity. It’s a very effective way to make a loud statement in a room filled with what feels like a sea of curvy women wearing sparkling sequins. Leave the glitter aside.
Let the fabulous factor come from the design lines that create the striking style. Look for luxurious evening fabrics like satin, chiffon, taffeta and jersey that are classic and drape beautifully on your curves.
Opt for sophisticated colors that are timeless. Think Black, Navy, Burgundy and Emerald, Royal for your understated and simple plus size Prom dress. A simple dress in a classic A-line or sheath silhouette gives you the option of making a louder fashion statement with your accessories like Prom shoes and jewelry. Remember, a Prom dress that’s sleek and simple can still be a stand out.
