Empire waist prom dresses express your inner boho belle. Whimsical, flowy and feminine, empire prom dresses make us think of fields of flowers, flower crowns and a soft summer afternoon. If your prom theme is Enchanted Garden, Fairytale, Grecian or Summertime Dreams - you can't go wrong with empire waist prom dresses for your prom dream dress! There is no more enchanted style than a soft and flowy empire waist prom dress.

Typically constructed from one of our favorite fabrics, chiffon, empire waist prom dresses are lightweight and easy to wear. The fitted bust line gives way to gathered fabric free falling from under the bust. The more gathers, the more full the skirt will be. Although, there are some styles that actually limit the fabric gathers and have a flat fall right under the bust line. Both of these styles, gathered and fitted are considered empire waist prom dresses.

Empire prom dresses are ideal for those who would like extra room in the tummy area and hips. The full skirt is ideal to mask a myriad of body imperfections while remaining truly elegant. Think Grecian Goddess goes to prom! If you have a significant "pear" shape, in that your hips are 10-12 inches larger than your bust measurements, the empire waist prom dress will fit you like a dream. This is truly the most flattering style for a pear shape that has some fit challenges because this style allows the full skirt to accommodate the hips while still fitting nicely at the top bust line.

Empire waist prom dresses come in strapless, cap sleeve, long sleeve and styles with straps. The silhouette can look quite different depending on which fabric if used for the dress. This year we are also seeing some fitted sequin styles that have an empire waist fabrication. A fashion forward trend for empire waist prom dresses is the color blocking style where the top of the dress is one color and the bottom is a contrasting color. No matter what fabric or color contrast or color harmony you choose, you will find the best selection of empire waist prom dresses at Christellas. Remember that every dress we carry is hand picked and meets our Best of Brand standards of excellence for fit, quality and style. Shop with confidence for your empire waist prom dress and have an incredible time at prom this year!
