It is important that you avoid prints and patterns at all costs. Think bust line ladies and know how to turn heads in your new long dress. We are talking about a good underwired bra needed and some support pants, theres no apple or round figure that cannot create a stunning hourglass burlesque look with the right advise and a bit of effort. Think low cut burlesque necklines, halterneck style long dresses and lots of accessories such as jewellery, its amazing what you can do with your curves. Men love curvy women so although you may think you are the hardest shape to long dress you can strutt your stuff just as good if not better than the other long dress to size shapes.
Monochromatic colours look best on you along with blacks greys pewters and blues you can add the colour with accessories and knock them dead with your drop dead gorgeous style.
We are talking about sheath long dresses, bubble hem long dresses with boots, wench style necklined straight dreses but with bold chunky necklaces and bangles to jazz up the look.

Long dresses ~ Many forms of these are made some covering from neck to shoulder, some ladies that are conservative will go for these styles. But long dresses can be very sexy should you choose the right cuts. With the addition of tiny straps and plunging necklines or carefully placed long splits to show some leg whilst a lady walks or when she is dancing.
The long dress is perfect for those events such as the prom night, gala or summer ball, they have that elegance that make ladies feel special. It is always good to occasionally go to events that let you experience that feeling that a long elegant dress gives you.
Long Silk Dresses ~ Fine clingy material with very little stretch this fabric more associated with lingerie is good when used as a floaty parts of a long dress rather than the main body.
Long Taffita Dresses ~ More often used in prom dresses or ball gowns, great for the bodice area although heavy doesn't drape or flow.
Long Cotton Dresses ~ Great material for the use in summer dresses or long dresses that you want to keep cool in. Viscose is the best cotton to use although its important that the retailer know's what grade this is. Thin grades can make dresses see through.
Long Chiffon Dresses ~ Rarely used for long dresses as this material only has any stretch when cut on the bias, Woven high quality fabric and will usually be quite expensive. Floaty light fabric which is better when used in association with another fabric.
Long Soft touch Dresses ~ Great fabric for long dresses as this so much stretch, this can be patterned, feels great against ladies skin. Again different grades available and retailers should be aware that the cheaper versions can also be transparent.
I.T.Y Dresses ~ Poor quality fabric especially for long dresses, cheap and nasty avoid at all costs.
Long Lace Dresses ~ Lace dresses are lovely they really usually hang well and most laces are stretchy, although try to avoid laces that have been massed produced to reduce costs, these will be used by companies that produce poor quality products.
Venues / going out
Dinner / dance ~ Here you will be looking to wear the cocktail dress or long evening dresses a feel for a look that is stylish and classy.
Prom nights ~ Short for promenade, is used to describe a formal dance held at the end of an academic year, Evening dresses with lots of details that are elegant, these prom nights have become a huge hit here in the U.K and the night is is regarded by some high school students that the prom is the most romantic night of their lives. It is also regarded as an event when a young girl changes to a young lady.

Romantic evenings ~ That candle light dinner with the one you love, elegance and classy long dresses which show your look is for his eyes only, These dresses cover you not showing to much bust and not to much leg.
This is the most important factor about the dress as good quality dresses will always fit in the right places, the attention to this is often overlooked by companies as they usually will be looking for hanger appeal rather than fit. This is the advantage you have buying online when you see a long dress that is being modeled. Ask yourself this - how many times have you been in a shop and liked the look of something only to try it on and it fits nothing like you imagined. These usually end up in the sale's
Every seasons new prints come out and when they do every manufacturer jumps on the bandwagon, before you know where you are the print has gone out of fashion and your long eveing dress becomes so last year. this is the major problem with prints and some colours if i'm honest. My advise has always been if you know that colours suit you stick to them.
It's true what they say you get what you pay for. Each company will work to different standards and if you like their standard keep using them. If something is reduced its because the retailer can't sell them, its undesirable or gone out of fashion. If Long dresses are cheap then they usually will be made below standard and with inferior materials, we all want value for money and some less well known companies will charge less for good quality items by cutting profits in order to attract more sales, these are genuinely good value.
It really is a case of knowing what suits you, If you have a long dress you love and looks good on you then expand on this look by finding simular cuts.
