BooHoo is amazing! I got my dress for £25 and it was beautiful! Floor length, with a swishy skirt and very unique.

In my imagination (I didn't go to prom) but I have seen this shop in passing and the dresses looked lovel https://soniquedresses.co.uk/ (it's in Birmingham not sure if there are any others nationally).

My prom dress came from a charity shop and it was gorgeous. 1930s vintage evening dress. If you want a unique dress, have a look around charity and vintage shops. Avoid sites like boohoo. If you know anything about clothes, you'll know that at anything other than a brief glance they look cheap. And they are usually made in sweatshops from poor quality materials.

I bought mine from ASOS online - cheap and actually had options short enough for me (I'm too short to buy the clothes in most shops...). Some of the dresses aren't great, but I ordered and tried a couple of nice ones and I really love the one I ended up with!

thanks places like boohoo etc were what I was trying to avoid but I wanted to take on board everyone's advice I think you're right though about looking for a nice one second hand so I'll do some investigating😂 otherwise I might look into renting one but the problem is you can't get them altered

I ordered 4 from there the other day to get an idea of what colour I would want and style etc and the ones I got were awful (like really really cheap looking- and the price wasn't even that low)😂😂 but I know alot of people get theirs from ASOS and most look good online.

Mia Belle Baby has an amazing clothing line. I purchased my prom dress from here with $30. Everyone at the party praised me for my dress. You can go with this store if you want to be unique and elegant.

Debenhams they have a surprisingly good selection. Or go to an outlet store such as downtown wher there are just loads of prom dresses for really cheap. It’s a bit potluck there tho
