As we head into the first week of March, for most students school is the last thing on their minds. But for those high schoolers getting ready to graduate this year, prom is at the forefront of their thoughts.
In recent years, body positivity has been on the rise, but stores and shops don't always put the mindset into practice by including an array of sizes for varying body types.
That said, here is a list of dress shops that offer size-inclusive options so all students can find something that makes them feel beautiful on their prom day.
Laura Petite & Laura Plus
If you're shopping online, be sure to check out Laura's Petite and Plus dress categories. Fairview Pointe-Claire is host to a Laura line and a Laura Plus line, however, their petite options may be limited.
La Jolie Robe
It is worth mentioning that those wishing to shop at La Jolie Robe in Vaudreuil must book an appointment in order to do so.
Located in Vaudreuil, this option is perfect for any off-island ladies.
Over the course of the pandemic, La Jolie Robe has worked to grow its social media presence through creative videos posted to both TikTok and Instagram. Check out this video to see what one of their dresses looks like on a curvier model.
Pinup Girl Clothing
This online-only shop is filled with size-inclusive models and curvy options. Those who recommended this shop suggested reading all product reviews in regards to sizing before ordering.
The site also offers shoes and accessories so this is truly your one-stop-shop.
Torrid is a plus-size online shop that carries sizes 10 to 30. Once again, reading product reviews should help you determine whether to size up, size down or order true to size.
The St-Hubert Plaza has become known over the years as the quintessential spot for prom dress shopping.
If one thing is clear, it's that taking the day trip into the city is absolutely worthwhile. Pack a lunch, hop into the car or take Montreal's metro, and peruse the windows of the many dress shops ready to serve you.
Located near Casselman, Ontario, Alliance Bridal is another great option for those who live off-island. Rather than taking a day trip into the city, why not take a trip across the border into Ontario.
Alliance Bridal offers an impressive selection of dresses for all styles, sizes, and budgets.
