Homecoming Dress Stress


Have you found your homecoming dress yet? This question is just one of the many stressors for the students of Lakes with homecoming being weeks away.

Homecoming celebration has been a long lasting American tradition and the pressure is on to make it the perfect experience. As they say, you only have 4 years of high school. 

With the societal pressures of acquiring the perfect picture, the focus of homecoming has turned away from fun with friends and more to having to look perfect for your photos. Part of getting to this superb look is finding the perfect hoco dress. 

As most girls know, shopping can go between fun and stressful on a regular basis. This is especially true when it comes to shopping for dresses. 

When finding the perfect dress, finding the right size also comes to mind. Throughout the years of shopping for dresses, us seniors have learned that if you are lucky enough to find your size in the store your search has definitely not ended. It seems that the bigger the size the uglier the dress and vice versa for smaller sizes. . 

Even local stores such as Gipper have this problem. Although they do have great, high quality dresses they are definitely not inclusive to the general population of highschool students. 

We have a lot of clean up to do as a society and locally. Until dresses that make all sizes feel beautiful are everywhere the stress to find the right dress is very real. Online, instead of in person stores is also a great place to start your search for the perfect dress. Just try to remember the true purpose of homecoming to have fun with friends. Good luck out there!
