Why Long Prom Dresses Remain a Favorite with Women across Age Groups

Visual media, especially
television has created many myths regarding proms like they have in many other
aspects of our lives. The impact has been so much so that most young women relate
to proms with
overtly expressive romantic gestures, big proposals and even
losing their virginity!But again if you were to solely believe in television
and movies, they would make you believe United Kingdom is all about royalty,
France about fashion and United States about playboys! The truth is proms are
more about expressing your style quotient than anything else. When it comes to
making choice of a prom outfit it all narrows down to long dress versus the
short ones. If few minutes of reel have captured your imagination you wouldn’t
like looking beyond short and skimpy prom dresses. If however you are more
balanced about your opinion you would realize the fact that nothing quite
matches the style and class of long prom dresses.

Over the last many decades prom
dresses have evolved and while in the 40s long dresses with booming cleavage
were popular by the 1950s full skirted sizes became popular. While there has
been a change in the styles and fabrics used over the last many decades, the
popularity of long prom dresses has never faded. They remain popular with women
across age groups and many of them wouldn’t trade their long dresses for
anything else. As a testimony to their popularity you would find most of the
top designers in the world showcase their styles with long prom dresses with
very few of them offering you the same amount of choice with short dresses. Let
us try and find out the reason behind this overwhelming popularity and why
opting for a long prom dress would be a great choice.

Isn’t Boring         
Long doesn’t
mean boring and you have to get over this myth which is again a result of
misleading visual media. Quite often we tend to associate long dresses with
conservative bent of mind. But if we were to apply the same logic to the darker
sex, men should take part in proms wearing shorts! 

Look Elegant…
While some would say you need to steal the show at the event, there is also a
negative connotation to this! If people are to talk about your outfit at an
event it is better that the talk be positive. Without an iota of doubt long
prom dresses look elegant. There is a sense of class attached to them which you
wouldn’t find the shorter variety of the dresses. They are considered apt for
any formal occasion.

If you have every shopped for short dresses for a prom you would realize that
almost all of them look the same and there is little variety you have to choose
from. With longer dresses you would almost have limitless options to choose
from. From different types of fabrics, styles and designs you will find
yourself soaked in so many options. One of the reasons being there is so much
to experiment with the style and design in long prom dresses.

Bare Backs
If you thought flaunting your skin wasn’t possible with long dresses you need
to think again. In the recent years we are witnessing an overwhelming bent
towards dresses that come with open backs. This just fits perfectly with a hemline
that is longer towards the bottom.  Short
dresses can only be revealing while longer ones let you portray a more
sophisticated look at any event.

Proms are special events where
you would want to create the perfect fashion statement. There is nothing that
comes close to long dresses when you want to raise eyebrows.
