If you like bride, bridesmaid, prom, homecoming (and what many call a prom, is here called a ‘formal’ – school formal that is), formal, party dresses, then look up a site called ‘LuckDresses’.
They make to standard sizes, AND (it’s a big ‘and’ for us) – they make to custom measurements.
So they will cater to those who aren’t hourglass shaped, or even ‘A’ shaped. Some of us are more ‘V’ shaped.
Just browsing through the pretty dresses is fun.
