Empire Gowns and Empire Waist Dresses

Fashion trends may come and go, but the empire waist dress is always in style because it is flattering to woman of all shapes and sizes. These special occasion dresses all have an empire waist which means the waist line has been raised above the natural waist in some cases to right below the bustline. This style creates an illusion of length for slender or petite figures and hides a thick waist or bottom heavy pear shape. There are strapless empire waist  cocktail dresses, baby doll homecoming dresses with empire waists, plus size formal dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and sexy prom dresses, all with empire waistlines. Whatever the occasion let PromGirl help you find the empire dress that is right for you at a price you can afford.
