TBDress Style Guide: Pageant Dress Shopping

I'm not a fan of beauty pageants. However, I can't (and I won't) deny that I do keep my eyes peeled for those long evening dresses that the pageant queens wear on-stage. In fact, pageant dresses might be the only reason  I watch them. These dresses have become a good option for women who want to go the extra mile when dressing up for a special occasion. When you choose a lovely long dress, there is little effort needed because the dress does the talking for you. 

TBDress.com comes to the rescue again, if you are in search of beautiful but affordable pageant dresses. I spent hours to no end browsing through their massive selection - it's so addicting! See below for some of my favorites from the site via this link: http://www.tbdress.com/Cheap-Pageant-Dresses-5589/

If you need to shop for pageant dresses, here are some guidelines that you need to remember: 

1. Look around as much as you can. Try everything on. There are some dresses that do not look too good on the hanger; you can only appreciate their look and style once you tried them on. 

2. Explore different colors. Some colors work great on certain skin tones, while others don't. If you don't like how a certain colored dress looks on you, try something else. 

3. Know your body. This is the golden rule when shopping for dresses. Choose a style and cut that will compliment your body shape, not go against it.

4. Try the dress on with shoes. Make sure to try on the dress so you know the appropriate length using shoes you intend to wear on pageant night.
