The Rankings


Eliza J Wrap Look High/Low Chiffon Dress

Our Score

LOVED FOR: With a sexy surplice v-neck and waist-cinching silhouette, this dress flatters and flaunts all your best features.

STYLE WITH: What good is that high/low hem if you aren’t going to wear a killer pair of heels?


ModCloth As Ruffles Ripple Maxi Dress

Our Score

BEST FOR: If you’re not into head-to-toe tulle or sequins, these pretty cascading ruffles are a subtler way to amp up your prom look.

USERS SAID: “This dress was a breath of fresh air. It was flattering and accommodating of my chest (40DD) and the empire waist and ruffled skirt was playful and elegant. [...] I'm so happy to have this dress in my closet!”


Adrianna Papell Plus Size Bead-Illusion Blouson Dress

Our Score

LOVED FOR: The blouson-style top is perfect for accentuating the waist and extra comfortable for those who need more room in the bust area.

HELPFUL TIP: Thanks to the simple and sleek silhouette, no special undergarments are needed.


R & M Richards Plus Size Sleeveless Beaded Gown

Our Score

USERS SAID: “I bought this dress for prom and let me tell you, it was the most comfortable dress I've ever worn! I didn't have to worry about adjusting it or anything like that. I wear a size 14 and I absolutely loved the way it looked on me—it really flattered my body shape.”

FUN FACT: You can’t tell in the photos, but this dress features a front slit that not only adds a flowy feel but a hint of sexy, too.


XSCAPE Embellished Jersey Gown

Our Score

BEST FOR: This body-hugging style is the ideal choice if you’re looking to show off those curves.

WHY YOU NEED IT: Prom may be in the spring, but that doesn’t mean the weather will cooperate. This dress features beaded long sleeves that will add warmth and a whole lot of sparkle too. Plus, this is a dress you can wear for years beyond your senior year in high school. 


Adrianna Papell Art Deco Blouson Beaded Gown

Our Score

LOVED FOR: That high-quality beading looks and feels much pricier than it really is.

USERS SAID: “Wow, this dress shines. [...] I'm very busty and curvy so I wanted something flattering without being too sexy for a military ball. I'm so floored by the quality and beading and so excited to wear this.”


Alex Evenings Cold Shoulder Sheath Gown

Our Score

LOVED FOR: The lightweight, drapey style makes for an extra comfortable—not to mention flattering—option.

STYLE WITH: Pair it with metallic strappy sandals to complement the shimmering fabric.


XSCAPE Beaded Neck Empire Gown

Our Score

USERS SAID: “The image does not do this dress justice—it is absolutely beautiful. Be prepared for loads of compliments when you wear it. The fit is perfect, the material is comfortable, the jeweled neckline will make you feel like a queen.”

HELPFUL TIP: This style runs large, so you’ll want to size down if you’re in between sizes.


Adrianna Papell Floral Embellished Godet Gown

Our Score

LOVED FOR: Details like beaded floral work, flowy tulle, and an illusion neckline add elegance to this simple silhouette.

HELPFUL TIP: This dress runs long, so it’s perfect for those on the taller side.


PrettyGuide Sequin Prom Dress

Our Score

WHY YOU NEED IT: Gatsby themed or not, you don’t need an excuse to show up in this sequinned stunner.

STYLE WITH: Keep the shoes simple with a classic pump or sandal.
