    We click to buy everything from music to make up.  Buying your prom gown is different in two ways:

    • the cost is greater than your typical online purchase, and
    • prom is a fixed date… you need the perfect dress that fits for a very specific night.

    How do you know you’re shopping with a great online vendor?

    4 Online Shopping Tips for Prom 2016

          1. Measure thyself:  Get out your swim suit and have a friend measure you. Not sure what’s needed to choose the correct size? Then watch this video from PromGirl.
          2. Measure the quality of the online vendor: What is their online reputation? A quick check at the bottom of the PromGirl web site reveals a bevy of certifications.

    Certifications at the bottom of the PromGirl website

        1. Identify the company’s return policy: Will you get store credit or a refund? Are there restocking fees? Who pays for postage on returns? If you can’t find the answer to these questions easily on the web site, you shouldn’t buy your prom dress with that business.
        2. Identify shipping time: Before paying for your perfect prom dress, you should understand the expected ship date and delivery time. Some vendors do not keep their online listings in stock; the prom dresses are drop shipped from the manufacturer when you place your order. Even if you’re an early bird shopper, you may need time to alter your prom gown.

    Understanding and trusting the online prom dress vendor is key to a happy purchase. PromGirl has 16 years of online experience in the prom gown business and prides itself on being the online prom dress superstore! With an enormous selection and dedication to customer service, you can shop safely at PromGirl.
