Prom Dress Stress Solved: Long Dresses

After having searched long and hard, I know first hand how hard it is to find a classy and respectable prom dress. For my schools prom, we wear long dresses and I struggled to find a dress and am hoping to help make it easier for y'all!

Prom Dress Stress Solved: Long Dresses

Above is a polyvore image I made which includes images of dresses I have found online so if you like a specific one then click on the image and then the dress to find where it is from!

My prom dress is the farthest right in the image and I love it! I personally am not huge fan of cutouts on dresses or overly sequined dresses so I like to keep it simple! Simple dresses are hard to find and typically pricey when you come across them. Keep this in mind when making a wish list for your dream dress. Also, don't be hesitant to go to stores and try dresses on as well, you never know what you may find!

Some of the best places to look online are at bridesmaid dress sections of larger department stores. I loved checking Nordstroms, Bloomingdales, Macys, Zappos, and Bluefly! There are tons of sites similar to those where you can find many different styles of dresses. 

If you can't find dresses on those shops I advise checking out the bridesmaids section of those sites if they offer that as well as googling bridesmaids dresses! I was fortunate enough to remember J.Crew has a great bridesmaid dress selection in a wide array of colors and that is where I struck gold!

Good Luck with your search and I would love to see what you find!

I will have a post coming soon including all of my favorite short dresses for all you girls who don't wear floor length gowns!



  1. My prom dresses all came from BCBG. I don't know why, but they had really great styles and I loved all of them! They weren't typical prom dresses because I was just like you..not a fan of all that bling!

  2. Love your dress, Dorothy! All of the stores you listed are fabulous dress finds! I got my Black Diamond Formal dress on Rue LaLa. It's a Sue Wong, and I got it for half price. I can't wait to see more of your dress!
