A Dozen Plus-Size Prom Dresses Made For A Night To Remember

When it comes to prom, there's three things that tend to be top of mind: your dress, your hair, and enjoying one of the hard-earned incentives of making it through four years of grueling homework. Unfortunately, the prom market can feel like it's oversaturated by bedazzled corsets and the same column gowns we've seen year after year. These memories will last forever (or, at the very least, the 24 hours it takes for your Snapchat story to disappear). With that, you're going to want to pick something a little more tasteful; a dress your future grandchildren will want to be sharing on r/OldSchoolCool.
Instead of going on your traditional mall crawl, take a look at the dozen styles ahead that will help you stand out in a sea of glittering mermaid skirts and lace appliqués.
