Prom Dresses: Modest Made Easy

May 20, 2008
In spite of letters, fashion shows and in-store queries all pointing to the need for modest dresses, most designers and manufacturers have failed to get the message. You can spend hours in malls and boutiques or online and still come up with zero options. Consequently, many girls, with the help of their mothers, have turned to good old patterns and sewing machines to make their own prom dresses. Whether they turn out as beautifully or not; it's better than going without.

Unfortunately, sewing seems to be a dying art and the price of fabric has risen. Making clothes used to be the inexpensive way to clothe a family, but now the cost of materials (like fabric, buttons, zippers and thread) is high enough to make even women with the machinery and skills think twice about putting together a modest and beautiful prom dress. On the other hand, proms don't come around that often and they certainly do mean a lot to high school girls. Even without a date, most girls admit that the chance to dress up makes the evening a wonderful event.

The bad news is that, no matter how you go about it, prom dresses are expensive. The good news, however, is that that there are modest dresses on the market. You just need to know where to look. If you come across the right website, you will find dozens of modest dresses in a variety of pastels, jewel tones and classic colors. And, being mindful of the fact that different girls have different figures, designers have created styles in enough sizes to fit many different body types. For example, you will find A-Line dresses, princess skirts, empire wastes and more. And, if you are looking for a gown with a little less glitter than a prom dress that is still suitable for formal events like a wedding you'll be happy to learn that they exist too.

So, the now that I've promised you everything you can hope for in a prom or bridesmaid dress, it's time to reveal the key to finding them. My advice would be to search for formal dresses in Utah stores. Even if you can't physically go to the state, the leading providers usually have a line of dresses displayed on their website. Now, I'm not saying that there is anything innate that makes Utah stores better than stores in other areas, but there's no denying the fact that Utah stores do tend to carry modest clothing because of the predominant religious beliefs in the area. I guess that when the demand is high enough, the product will occasionally get delivered.
