Attending the prom can be a wonderful event for any young woman. And the memorable evening all starts with a beautiful, well fitting prom dress. The right prom dress brings fashion and confidence to its wearer, and ushers in the opportunity for a magical evening.

However, finding the right prom dress isn't as easy as driving to your local shopping mall. You can quickly grow tired and frustrated trying on ill-fitting prom dresses at store after store. In addition, prom dresses at traditional retail stores can get very expensive.

JC Penney

JC PENNEY Visit Site

Cost:

From $18 to $200

JC Penney has been a trusted name in apparel for many years. Their prom collection consists of 193 dresses in more than a dozen brands, ranging in price from $18 to $200. Shoppers can easily sort through the available options on the retailer's website, filtering by length (mid, long, hi-lo, and mini), average user rating, brand, and size range (junior/plus). JC Penney is truly a one-stop shop for all things prom, with an ample selection of shoes, shapewear, and accessories to accompany any formalwear purchase.

One of the biggest advantages of purchasing a prom dress from a big-box retailer is the ability to buy online and return in-store. JC Penney allows returns with or without the original receipt, assuming the dress is returned in its original condition with the green return tag intact. Whether returned by mail or directly to a JC Penney location, a full refund will be issued if the shopper can provide the receipt; otherwise, a merchandise credit based on the dress' lowest price in the last 45 days will be provided.

Another plus for JC Penney shoppers is the ability to take advantage of the store's frequent discounts of 20% or more, as well as the store rewards program for JCP credit cardholders

Customers will appreciate JC Penney's shipping options as well: free home delivery for orders of $99 and higher, or direct-to-store for purchases of $25 and up. Otherwise, shipping is a flat $7.99.

While getting a prom dress from a household-name retailer may not have the glitz of boutique shopping, the affordable, modern collection of gowns available at JC Penney is a fantastic option for ladies on a budget who don't want to compromise on style.

Dressily Me

DRESSILY ME Visit Site

Cost:

From $36 to $570

Dressily Me is based in China and specializes in prom dresses and wedding apparel, while also having a selection of lingerie, swimwear, and jewelry from which to choose. Their website is full of thousands of dresses in a wide variety of styles, and shoppers can easily sort them by categories such as “Little Black and White Dresses” and “Sweetheart”, by hemline length, color family, neckline, and much more.

Pricing at Dressily Me is fantastic. However, when reading through their customer reviews, it's clear that a budget-priced dress from this retailer is not necessarily a bargain. Dressily Me does not sell dresses made by the designers featured; rather, they create copies that very often do not match the original. For example, the dress labeled as "Glmorous Chiffon V-Neck Mermaid Evening Dresses with Embroidery & Beads" is from the Xtreme Prom collection by Impression (Model 32635). While buying it from Dressily Me may save you $360, you are likely to have issues with the result: customers complain about cheap materials, poor fit, and coloring that doesn't even come close to what they thought they were getting.

Dressily Me does not allow any returns on custom items. Given that virtually every order will be custom (because they don't manufacture the dress until an order is placed), that essentially leaves customers with no options if the dress they receive is poorly made. In fact, even if the dress is measured and manufactured incorrectly, Dressily Me's answer (as written in the return policy on the site) is to invite the customer to “find a local tailor to make adjustments” and to "please kindly forgive" any errors within one inch. Even when customers have followed the return policy to the letter, including sending in photos of poorly-fitting dresses, they have often gotten inappropriate responses such as “You look beautiful, so there's no problem!” This is unprofessional at best.

Given that the majority of Dressily Me's customers have experienced significant problems with both their dresses and the customer service they received, we strongly recommend that even prom dress shoppers on a budget consider one of the more highly-rated retailers in our review.

Fortunately, there is an alternative. Shopping for prom dresses online can be fun and exciting. With the click of a mouse, you can easily browse through dozens, or even hundreds, of prom dresses in the latest fashions and styles. Plus, buying your prom dress online can save you hundreds of dollars, since you avoid the costly markups associated with traditional retail stores.

Before you start your prom dress shopping effort, you should consider the following important factors:

  • Selection.  How large is the prom dress selection? A good variety of prom dresses will increase your chances of finding the perfect dress to suit your body type, budget and taste preference.
  • Return Policy.  In the event the prom dress doesn't meet your expectations, will you be able to return it for a full refund?
  • Cost.  How does the price compare with other prom dress stores? Are you going to get a value dress for you money, or pay a premium? Does the store only cater to high end prom dress shoppers, or do they offer a variety that can fit everyone's budget?
