The music is loud. People awkwardly stand by the punch bowl while others dance on the dimly lit dance floor while the sparkles on the prom dresses light up the room.

“I want dresses that will make me stand out from everyone else,” sophomore Sydney Benadum said. “A dress that makes others jealous– and has a lot of sparkles.”
The perfect dress is one that fits in all the right places.

“I worry about finding a dress that fits everywhere,” junior Kaitlin Arnett said. “I’m really short and my waist is a size two but my legs are a size four.”

Many people strive to impress others and especially their date with their dress and how they look.

“I want people to think ‘wow’ when they see my dress,” sophomore Lauralee Poplinski said. “And also that I’m super cute.”

While in the process of finding a dress, there are things girls avoid to make finding their perfect dress easier.

“You will never see me wear baby blue,” Benadum said. “I feel like it is a little kid color and it doesn’t match my skin tone.”

Many girls agree it’s also nice to bring someone along to help guide them in the process.

“I bring my mom with me because she is the most criticizing,” junior Zahra Husseini said. “But I also like to bring my friends so it’s more fun.”

Besides the fun, dancing part of prom, there are moments that aren’t so great, too.

“Last year we went out to eat before prom,” Poplinski said. “I ended up spilling Chinese food all over myself and the dress right before we went.”

Finding the perfect prom dress is just a part of the whole experience.

“Your dress is what other people remember about you from prom night,” Benadum said. “So you have to make sure it’s pretty.”
