I'm size 12-14(UK), have an hour-glass figure, dark brown hair (which comes to about my bra strap), blue-gray eyes (lots of mixed colors but these two are most dominant) and clear pale skin.
I'm wondering if anyone knows what type of dress (floor-length, below the knee etc) and color you think would suit me?
Also, if anyone knows any good prom website (a la UK) or a good store situated throughout England (i.e. Debenhams) where the dresses aren't too expensive (£150 is probably max I'd pay) OR if anyone has a prom dress they'd want to sell me I'm open to that too - I know this isn't eBay but it's worth a shot. ;)

Kk, you have an hourglass shape so you def need to show those curves off! It is the perfect body shape so don't wear loose or floaty dresses because it will just hide your curves and make you look like everybody else who isn't lucky enough to have curves. I am a size 12 and have hips and a small wasit and I love showing the curves off by wearing a body con dress bandage style.
I'm not sure how tall/short you are but I would still go for a dress that ends above your knee but obvs not micro mini or anything lol. And if it can't be too revealing go for a dress with straps (some gorge ones are the ones that cross over the back-i tried a dress on in topshop yday and it had those straps, it was gorgeous).
I think the classic black dress would suit you but if you want something more daring and different because it's your prom then you can choose a bright bold colour like red,green,pink or purple would probs suit you best if you're pale with dark brown hair.
Lipsy have some great dresses, Asos has some amazing ones too. River Island has a gorge black body con dress with straps and like I said before Topshop has got some really good body con and other style dresses. You could also try H&M because Matthew Williamson has just done his first range for that store and there'll probs be some really nice dresses.
That's all I can think of at the moment lol, good luck finding the perfect dress :)0
