For a long time now, clothing has been trending toward more and more revealing, with skirts getting shorter, tops getting teenier, and higher and higher levels of exposure becoming acceptable even in stricter families and groups. In a culture where all you have to do to see skin flashed is to walk outside, there is something different, special, and alluring about a woman leaving something to the imagination.
With prom season coming, dresses with slits all the way up to the waistline and necklines that dip almost to the slits are hitting the shelves, but there are plenty of more modest and equally if not more beautiful choices being overlooked by many prom goers. This year when you are browsing the racks, consider whether you want to reveal all, or go to prom with a bit of mystery and class.
While this isn’t the 18th century where women are expected to wear clothes that cover from neck to wrist to ankle, modesty is not forgotten or archaic. Modest prom dresses can hide the little imperfections that all of us sport, and even many fashion advisers suggest balancing visible skin with a bit of extra coverage somewhere else. For example, if you are showing your shoulders, keep the neckline high and the skirt long. If you have a dress with a bit of a slit, make sure the dress has sleeves or a matching wrap to create balance in your look.
When guys look at girls who wear a typical prom dress, they see an easy woman, and if their interest is not in sex, there may be little else to keep them interested. After all, why spend time getting to know a girl who has few physical secrets from the world. Instead, create a look that is hot and beautiful but that keeps a little back, and you will have the guys falling all over themselves to get your attention.
Is exposure really all that sexy? It is up to you to make the choice in how you dress and what message you send when you attend prom this year. It is possible to look fantastic without exposing yourself, and modest prom dresses offer you wonderful prom options. The full length gown, long opera gloves, and a beautiful up-do are just what every little girl dreams of looking like when she’s young, and the princess look is just as hot today.
