There is no doubt Long Island teens love prom. The fashion trend for prom dresses has been one of glamour, glitz and formfitting gowns that leave little to the imagination. The perfect prom dress is so important that high school social media and smart phone group chats have been dedicated to the fashion item of the night to ensure girls don’t show up to prom wearing a replica of someone else’s prom dress.

Long Island specialty stores and boutiques charge an exorbitant amount of money for a prom dress that will only be worn once, for a day that is never what one hopes it would be. If you weren’t planning on attending prom until now or if the perfect prom dress hasn’t caught your eye, then try Bloomingdale's for affordable last-minute prom dresses. While Bloomingdale's is not always synonymous with affordability, its prom dress prices are low as compared to some of the smaller shops throughout Long Island.
