Plus Size Prom Ball Gowns

2016 Plus size ball gowns

Exquisite styles and stunning colors from Sydney's Closet ideal for you to wear when you dream of being a Prom Princess - at any age!

Our romantic fairy-tale designs are updated with sequins, gemstones and beautifully beaded lace. Full tulle skirts that twirl on the dance floor. Cinderella never looked as good as you will on your big night in our evening dresses.

Red and blue are two hot colors trending for Prom 2016 ball gowns. Black and gold, always a rich and oh-so regal color combination, are also super popular. In addition to the traditional tulle skirts, satin makes a strong fashion statement as a fresh alternative for a skirt fabric choice. Satin, a favorite of brides, gives you a smooth, sleek look that is slightly more sophisticated than the traditional tulle skirt.

Fit Tips for Ball Gowns:

Dressing up like a Princess can be overwhelming. We understand! So we've made it easy for you. Just follow these fit and flatter tips. You'll make finding a plus sized ball gown that shows off your curves as easy as waving a magic wand:

  • Tip One: a ball gown with a poof skirt conceals a heavy bottom and accentuates your waist.
  • Tip Two: ballgowns with a dropped waist (also called a "basque waist" ) make you look thinner.
  • Tip Three: Are you under 5'4" tall. Then you will want to shop with caution. Be sure to steer clear of having a ball gown to overwhelm your petite frame! To solve that problem, take out a layer or two of crinoline on the underskirt. It helps better proportion the dress to your body frame.
  • Tip Four: Always shop for a Prom dress with a lace-up back. You get a better fit in the bodice and likely save on what can be costly alterations!

Don't forget to add the perfect crowning touch. Wear a rhinestone tiara with your gown. For real head-to-toe glamour add a pair of sparkling silver high heels and you're all set to dance the night away with your Prince Charming! And if you are feeling very polished, consider adding elbow length evening gloves for a very refined and sophisticated look usually reserved strictly for royalty.

Please remember to send us pictures of you looking magical on your Prom night!

And please keep in mind ball gowns aren't strictly for Prom. Dazzle the crowd at a military or Mardi Gras ball or black tie affairs wearing a breathtaking evening dress with a fitted bodice and a full skirt. Keep the accessories simple and classic for a spectular look at any formal event.
