Frequently Asked Questions


Q1. How do I pick an evening gown when there are so many selections?            
A1. We do have a lot of evening gowns to choose from and understand that the selection can be quite overwhelming. In order to make your shopping experience easier, we've sorted evening gowns by several categories including occasion, color, size, and price. The first and most important thing you should consider when picking the perfect evening gown is to make a budget and decide what you can afford. After you decide on your budget, the process becomes much easier. You can select a range of prices and then sort by color, size, or occasion.


Q2. How can I be sure that a dress I pick will look good in person?            
A2. Buying a dress online from pictures only can be a scary proposition, but we've taken several steps to help you with your selection. When you find a dress that you like, click on the picture of the dress on the left side. There you can find multiple views of the dress. Also there is a built in zoom function that allows you to see the fine details of the dress from head to toe so you can be sure that the dress is to your liking. Many dresses have been photographed in more than one color, allowing you to see different options.
In addition to photographs, some dresses have video tours that you can take to get a better view of them that can be accessed by clicking on "watch dress video."


Q3. How do I pick a color for my evening gown?            
A3. Every woman should have at least one or two good evening gowns that they can wear to a variety of functions. When choosing an evening gown, it is best to choose neutral colors like black, gray, or shades of brown. These shades are neutral colors that are classic and can stand the test of time. Also, these colors are neutral and go with anything. You can add any accessory to gowns in these shades to produce a pop of color that will complete your outfit. Be careful of choosing a gown that is too colorful or too flashy unless you are confident that you can pull the look off. Above all things, pick a dress in a color that you like.
If you are still in doubt, opt for the classic "little black dress." These never go out of style and can be worn to numerous occasions. They can be sexy enough for a cocktail party or red carpet event, while at the same time being appropriate for more reserved occasions.


Q4. How can I match my dress to my skin tone?             
A4. Matching your dress to your skin tone is very important. A dress may look beautiful, but not beautiful on you because of the color contrast between it and your skin. Here are some quick guidelines to matching your dress to your skin tone:
Light skin tone: Pick strong, dark colors. Pastels and white colors can make you look pale and pasty.
Olive skin tone: Avoid shades of brown or gold that can clash with your skin.
Dark skin tone: Contrast, contrast, contrast! Dark skin tones look great with dresses that are white or bright colored.



Q5. How can I pick the right dress for my body shape?             
A5. The number one rule for picking an evening dress to suit your body type is to pick an outfit that does not highlight the problem spots on your body. Here are some common problem spots that all women have:
Wide hips: If you have big hips, pick a longer dress that is no shorter than 1 inch off your knee. Pick a dress with a plunging neck line. Also avoid "mermaid" dresses as they will accentuate your hips.
Thick arms: Choose dresses with arms instead of strapless dresses in order to hide your arms. Pick loose sleeves.
Small chest: Pick a dress with a rounded neck line and do not wear plunging neck lines.
Large chest: V-neck dresses can accentuate your chest. A- line dresses that are narrow at the top and taper downwards also work well.
Plus size: Women with larger frames should pick dresses that drape nicely rather than baggy clothes. Many women believe that they can hide their curves with baggy clothes, when in reality, baggy clothes make them look larger than they are.

 


Q6. How can I be sure the dress I pick is "the one"?             
A6. Buying an evening dress can evoke a lot of emotions. The most important factor in deciding whether or not the dress is for you is to step back and ask yourself whether the dress makes you happy and if you feel better about yourself while wearing it. That's the most important question you can ask yourself. It doesn't matter what your friends or family say. They are not the ones wearing the dress. All women have their own style and wearing a dress that doesn't fit your style will make you uncomfortable and lacking confidence, both of which are visible to those around you.

 



Q7. Can dresses that are sorted by occasion for one event on your website be worn for another occasion?             
A7. Absolutely. The category headings are suggestions to help sort clothes and not absolutes. For example, if an evening gown is listed under the prom dress category, you can wear the dress after your prom. In fact, for most dresses, you should wear them on more than one occasion. There's no sense in buying an expensive dress only to wear it for one event. Most evening gowns are appropriate for a variety of functions and special occasions. If properly cleaned and stored, all of our evening gowns will serve you well for many years.
