Sleeves are another detail to look at. Cap sleeves which are short are not very flattering as they expose flabby arms. However, small sleeves that fall around the upper arm are flattering as they define the upper body and keep the eye at the top and away from the fullness at the bottom. Long sheer sleeves that give a peek of the arms while keeping them covered are also ideal.
Length is another key factor. Generally speaking, long skirts made of flowing fabrics that skim over curves rather than hug them is ideal. However, it is possible to play around with this and show off a nice pair of legs. Plus size prom dresses with a mullet hem that is shorter at the front and longer at the back work well. You can also create interest and flatter a full figure with plus size prom dresses with asymmetrical hems.
Colour is also important. The best colors for plus size prom dresses are dark ones as they have a slimming effect. However, this doesn’t mean being confined to black or navy. Dark shades of red, green and brown have the same effect. Sticking to colors in the same family for the dress and accessories is also better than clashing colors.
