Prom has become one of high school’s most beloved and enduring traditions because it’s meant to be one of the most magical and memorable nights of your high school career. With all of the fancy dresses, fantastical themes, fun with friends, and endless dancing, it’s no wonder everyone looks forward to attending! And since prom is such a special night, and you only get to attend a couple of times in your life, you should be able to wear a truly amazing dress that will make your night even more incredible- like a showstopping ballgown that will transform you into the princess you deserve to be!
If you’re looking to really play up the fantasy vibes and go all out for your prom look, then an over-the-top, tulle, ballgown prom dress might be just the style you’ve been looking for! Ballgowns are so much fun because they have such a full skirt that adds to much drama to your look. And because the bodice is fitted and flares out over the hips, the ballgown is a universally flattering silhouette, so anyone who wears one will look and feel their best!
We’ve chosen a few of our favorite glitzy ballgown prom dresses from the Prom 2019 season to help you fall in love with a look fit for a fairy tale princess! All of these gowns can be purchased on the Whatchamacallit website!
This gold ballgown is absolutely breathtaking with its skirt made from layers of glittering tulle that will shimmer so gorgeously in any light! This metallic, statement prom dress also features a strapless bodice that is embellished with even more shimmering details for an extra glamorous look! Add some gold jewelry to complete the look, and you’ll be shining the night away!
Blush is such a sweet and feminine color, making it the perfect pairing with the sweet and feminine ballgown silhouette! We particularly love this gown because of the super sparkly bodice that flows into a pretty tulle skirt with a leg slit for a little extra detail. This prom dress is so sweet, it reminds us of something a ballerina would wear!
If you’re looking for a bolder look, but still want to channel those princess vibes, then this dress is for you! Not only does this two-piece prom gown feature an insanely glittery skirt, but that’s paired with an even more embellished top that has intricate beading and sequins, creating a unique, glamorous, gilded look. We even love the cap sleeves because they’re so delicate and girly!
One word: Showstopper! Isn’t this silver gown so dreamy? It has an incredibly full and flouncy tulle ballgown skirt paired with a gem and sequin-encrusted bodice that cascades onto the skirt, and sheer, illusion panels for some dreamy boldness. If you don’t feel like a princess in this gown, then you probably feel like an angel instead because this dress is so heavenly!
This pretty, purple dress is another swoon-worthy ballgown that features a super full, tulle skirt that will have you twirling all over the dance floor! We love the romantic, floral lace and embroidered details on the strapless bodice, which add even more of a feminine touch. Add some flowers to your hair, and you’ll look like a fairy princess!
This dress is so full and fun because of how layered and ruffled the ballgown skirt is! We also adore the understated, silver color of the gown, which is so elegant and glamorous without being too in your face. The dress is finished off with an illusion deep-V neckline and a shimmering, silver, sequin belt for that perfect touch of shine.
We are obsessed with how this full, layered, ballgown skirt drapes and falls so gorgeously, creating a fantastic and unforgettable shape! This ballgown prom dress is made even better with embroidered floral details that cover the bodice and cascade down the skirt. Just imagine how gorgeous this dress would look paired with a tiara- wow!
