Shoppers Paradise also have Ball Gowns on display. Ball gowns and evening gowns differ in that a ball gown will always have a full, flared skirt and a strapless bodice; in contrast, an evening gown can be any silhouette - sheath, mermaid, A-line or trumpet shaped - and may have straps, halters or even sleeves.

Evening dresses and Party dresses at Shoppers Paradise are available from small sizes to the XXXL sizes.  Long Gowns at Shoppers Paradise are available from small sizes to the XXXL sizes or UK sizes 8 to 20. Our evening gowns are so amazing, that you will not want the party or the night to end.

Modern Day Gowns

Starting with the 1930s, evening gowns began to modernize. Along with the empire cut, over the years the sheath, mermaid, A-line, and trumpet shapes became popular. Also, the dropped waist and princesses styles were frequent, depending on the era. Grace Kelly is noted for wearing modest evening gowns. Today, the evening gown comes in any silhouette, and is popular for formal occasions such as the opera, formal dinners, cocktail parties, and wedding receptions.

THE EVENING GOWN STYLES

 

Sheath Style Gowns
The sheath style evening gown, like the usual sheath dress, is designed to fit the body tightly. It is generally unbelted, and has a straight drape. It can have shoulder straps or be strapless. 

Mermaid Style Gowns
Mermaid, as the name suggests, means that the evening gown is shaped like a mermaid. It is form-fitting at the bodice, and the skirt is designed to resemble a mermaid's tail in silhouette. 

A-line Style Gowns
The A-line style evening gown is somewhat bell-shaped, it is close-fitting at the top and widens gradually at the bottom, without gathers or pleats. This makes for a simple but elegant appearance. 

Trumpet Style Gowns
If the evening gown is trumpet shaped, it is tight-fitting until it reaches the knees, where it flares. 

Empire Style Gowns
The Empire silhouette involves the waistline coming up to just below the bust, from which the skirt hangs straight and loose, in a simple breezy style. 

Dropped Waist Style Gowns
The waistline is dropped below the actual waistline. The skirt can be fitted or flared. 

Princesses’ Style Gowns
The princesses’ style evening gown is also tight, cut in single pieces, such as gores, and hanging in an unbroken line from shoulder to flared hem.

Evening gowns can be separated from conventional or day to day dresses by the two primary features. The first is the cut, which tends to be couture and in line with the latest fashions, unless the article of clothing is a ball gown, in which case it will tend to be cut along more classic lines. The second distinguishing feature of an evening gown is the fabric. Evening gowns lean towards to use luxury materials such as silk, velvet, and taffeta, and they may be richly embroidered or decorated with beads, sequins, jewels, and other ornaments. 

Some women also prefer to alter the evening gowns to a perfect fit. In all cases, evening gowns are designed to be worn with high quality jewelry too.

Evening gowns are typically associated with glamor and luxury, and appear at events like the Academy Awards in the United States, the opening of the society season in urban areas, and formal or wedding receptions. The bigger and glamorous the occasion, event or party the more luxurious or exclusive the evening gown has to be.
