Did I see some of you nodding? Absolutely!

No one pays any particular attention to the fabric of the dress in spite of the fact that the correct fabric will make or break the look. Sometimes when laces are added to dresses, they may feel stiff and starchy especially if they are synthetic and hence may not be the right choice for your important day. You don’t want to end up with cheap short tight homecoming dresses as they say lighter girls should wear certain fabrics, while heavier girls should avoid them. However fashion is all about breaking the rules, but before you do that you need to know the options available to you.

Once you identify the fabrics and tick the ones that feel right for you, it’s then a cake walk. But until then… here are the main fabrics used in making prom or farewell dresses. 

1. Chiffon is a sheer fabric made from a combination of rayon, polyester, nylon, cotton and/or silk that  
    drapes well and floats delicately as it is super light and flowy. 
2. Organza is yet another sheer fabric made from blends of silk, polyester and/or nylon primarily used   
    to make dresses with multiple tiers or layers. 
3. Georgette is a mix of silk and polyester that is a thin, light fabric with a slight crinkle that almost 
    clings to the body creating a gorgeous silhouette.  
4. Crepe or Crape is a lightweight fabric that is a mix of silk, polyester and/or wool that may be smooth 
    or crinkled in texture to add layers to the entire silhouette. 
5. Taffeta and tulle are the most sought-after fabrics for dresses especially during the winter season as 
    it is multi-layered and stiff. 

So what are you waiting for head straight and pick your favourite from hundreds of Popular Prom Dresses.
