Want that 2 piece prom trend and a short dress? Never fear, Dave and Johnny’s lace and sheer panel dress catches both those trends with a sassy punch!

Prom dress designers are finally getting the hint: We want beautiful plus size prom gowns.
Of course, brands like Faviana and Blush have always offered fashion forward long formal gowns in plus sizes. For Prom 2015, there’s more choice than ever for your beautiful full figure. Let me just start with
6 Beautiful Plus Size Prom Gowns
This Dave and Johnny beaded prom dress uses sequins to outline curved motifs on the bodice of this fabulous plus size gown. Sequins follow the scalloped edge on the the natural waistline and frame the sweetheart neckline. Shoulder straps flare to a wide band which means no strapless bra needed. Long layers of chiffon swish around the gathered skirt which looks fabulous on the dance floor.
Fabulous beading emphasizes a cap sleeve prom gown by Madison James. With a portrait neckline and sheer layers highlighted by sequins and beads, this plus size prom dress looks elegant and polished with its beaded waistband and flowing chiffon skirt. The deep v back adds just the touch of drama without giving up control. This prom dress is fabulous for bringing the attention up to the shoulders and creating a slim silhouette.
This season, lovely sherbet colors are a popular prom trend. Madison James combines a shirred bodice and beaded accents to create a feminine and long look in this plus size prom gown. Your bare shoulders are framed by beaded shoulder straps that highlight your earrings and necklace. The central beaded motif angles along the empire waistline. This beautiful plus size chiffon gown is flattering on every figure type.
Looking for a halter dress? This royal blue plus size gown is a great choice. Rhinestones embellish the halter neckline. A sheer organza layer covers the princess shaped lining of the bodice, sealed with a matching band of rhinestones at the natural waist. I love the brilliance of the royal blue, but this plus size prom dress is also available in pastel colors like mint, champagne and light coral.
Faviana uses silver glitter jersey in a sleek plus size prom gown. Princess seams, sheer layers and a long thigh slit create a lean contemporary statement for prom or any red carpet occasion. Faviana does a great job of creating plus size prom dresses with a trendy twist.
Dave and Johnny’s open back formal dress uses lace for a romantic prom look. Selective use of sequins adds a touch of sparkle to the sinous lace motif. The lace creates the high neckline and combines with a sheer inlay to add dimension to the bodice. Curly wisps of lace extend over the natural waist and onto the full chiffon skirt. Blush pink never looked so dainty or on trend in this plus size prom dress.
