|This tip is number one for a reason. Make sure you have a look at some styles online before you go shopping. Pinterest is a great place to find and save boards of your favourite things which you can then show your stylist too. The three things to take note of are necklines, skirt shapes and materials that you like.|
|Even if you haven't quite figured out which silhouettes are going to suit your body shape, pick out some colours that you like to wear or some that draw your attention. This way, if you want to avoid all white dresses for example, you're already making the decision easier!|
|Find some boutiques online or ask around your friend group and make a list of the ones you want to visit. If there is a particular dress at one place that you are dying to try, make sure you visit at least one other shop before hand to try on some different things and have fun.|
|Know what you and your parents are willing to spend on your dream formal dress before you start looking and don't, I repeat, DON'T try on anything that's higher than your budget. The worst thing is falling in love with something you can't afford as nothing else will compare.|
|Have a little fun putting a curl in your hair and a smokey eyeliner on and wear it along to your trying on session. It will help you visualise better how you will look on the day of your formal when you're all dressed and ready to go.|

Depending on the style and/or the material of the clothing, sizing may vary.
So if you have any enquiries about sizes on a particular dress or are unsure of your size please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
To save you the hassle of ordering the wrong size for your body, here's a simple way to get accurate measurements of yourself.
Grab a tape measure and stand in front of a full-length mirror. Be sure to take your measurements undressed or in your underwear only.
Stand straight and pull the tape measure close to your body, but not too tight!
For best and more accurate results, have a friend take the measurements for you.
We understand that not being able to physically try on our garments can be hard when making your purchase. If you are unhappy with the size or fit of your purchase you can return or exchange it as long as it meets all our return and exchange policy requirements.
Please refer to our "RETURNS" section for further information.
Measure the bust line at the fullest part of your chest. Stand naturally with your heels together and arms resting by the side of your body. Position the tape so that it covers the widest part of your back and the fullest part of your chest.
Place your hands at your natural waistline. This is where the tape should be positioned. If you cannot find your natural waist, stand with your feet slightly apart and bend to the side. Where your waist creases is the natural waist.
Stand naturally with your heels together in a relaxed pose. Measure with the tape.
