Prom Dress under 25

Updated on May 3, 2018

13 Dollars & Under

I know how tight wallets have been from the rising cost of gas and food to people loosing their jobs. We all want to give our children a fashionable and elegant prom, but you may lack the founds to do so and this lens will help you find the cheap dresses you never knew existed. Beautiful and elegant pieces that will look like you spent more than 10 times the amount you did.

I've always been a good shopper I bought my own prom dresses for under 20 dollars, but that was over ten years ago so when I decided to create a lens on where to find inexpensive prom dresses capping it at 25 dollars, I thought I would find just a few dresses...that is not what happened at all. I have found around 100 dresses. Some of these dresses are on clearance and started at around 150 dollars. I have compiled this list for you so that you can send your child to prom, a dance, a nice date, a wedding or any other formal occasion you can think of in style.

You can even buy yourself a fancy dress and feel like you've spent a ton, when you've really just spent a little. It's okay to treat yourself once in awhile.

This article is capped at 25, but most of the dresses are that are lower There were so many fabulous dresses that I may have to do another lens for dresses under 25.

I have completely updated this page with new dresses and I will update it every six months to remove sold out dresses and adding new ones.

There are also cauctionary tales of bad dresses, always do your own research and I’ve added videos of people trying on prom dresses from,, and

You also cannot discount your local stores, and thrift shops, you might find a hidden gem inside their walls.

This knee length dress was purchased at Khols for under 20 dollars, it is a beautiful simply vera dress in a size 12.

Where To Find

All of these fabulous dresses can be bought from and most of these dresses are eligible for free shipping on orders totaling 25 dollars or more. What it means for you is if you buy a dress for 25, you don't have to pay anymore or if you buy a 15 dollar dress you could buy a 10 dollar handbag or a DVD you've wanted for awhile and as long as the DVD is also eligible your shipping will be free.

This lovely romantic empire waist dress with a ribbon accent that ties in the back is a great example on how cheaply things can be bought. This dress has been marked down to 14 dollars and 14 cents.

I need a disclaimer for myself, I am very short so these dresses would probably come to my knee some of these dresses would be too short for a tall teenager. I also would where a shrug or sexy jacket because I don't like to show off my arms and wear leggings under the ones that would be still too short for me. I have to be honest because I came across these dresses while researching modest prom dresses and that lens is still forthcoming and will be done soon.

Good luck in finding the best, the cheapest and the most fabulous dresses you can.

It's All About The Details

All of these Allegra K Women dresses are pretty and fun. These are chic in a cute way. You can wear them to prom or a night on the town with your friends.

Another thing I love about these super cute dresses is that they are not on sale, this is their everyday price, so these dresses will be around a lot longer than a dress that is merely on clearance and will be available for months or years to come.

This is part of a cautionary tale, this dress retails for only 15 to twenty dollars.  Which amazingly enough does actually includ shipping.

A Pretty Bad Buy

This dress does come in small to extra large for 15 to twenty dollars, which yes includes shipping. It is still no an adequate choice for most people. It tears very easily, so you would have double check the seems before you go out in this dress. The pattern is true, I have seen this very dress in videos on YouTube before. It is not as long as it claims to be, on me this would be nearing floor lengt, but I’m excitingly short, on anyone over 5 foot 2 inches tall it would end up being an odd length.

Its extremely important that you do all the research you can when buying any clothing online, read review, watch videos on cheap prom dress, because sometimes shipping an item back because it wasn’t what they repersented online is more expensive than just buying a different dress.

Sleek in Silver and Gray

This Romeo & and Juliet line of dresses go from pretty and simple to elegant and divine. This dress comes in this eggplant color and teal. I would pair this with a small shrug or jack that would show off the one strap and bow, yet still cover the arms. I'd also choose black or dark gray platform heels. This dress is 15.00 plus 8.95 for a grand total of 23.95.

The Color Purple

I love the purple dress, it's my favorite color. Not only are these dresses cute, they are very well priced.

The Bait And Switch

This is when they show you a photo and something awesome and send you a knock off.

The Bait And Switch

This is the photo used on this dress by this photo seems too good to be true since with shipping, this gown is only twenty dollars. Well it is too good be true, because this is the designer version of the dress you will recieve. Yes you will get the knock off counterfiet version of this gorgeous gown, I have added two more photos of how the gown actually looks.

The beading, material, length and the fact that it has no layers would all have to be completely changed to get the true dress to look like this.

Not The Same Gown

This dress would be okay as a costume for a night those you might have to wear something under it, since cheaply made beading is usually itchy and scratchy.

      I actually wouldn't wear any these myself without leggings, but sometimes how tall the models are. I saw this dress on covet fashions its a game which has real dresses in it, in the game the dress came mid thigh. I saw the same dress on the actress who plays Bell on Once Upon A Time, the dress came to her knee.

      I don't have any daughters, but I have two teenage nieces that I'm close to. Also, I'm a high school substitute teacher. So, I know how important prom dresses are to girls! Buying a prom dress is a big event for a teenage girl and I know that it can be close to traumatic if the girl can't buy afford dress she really likes. I've bookmarked this lens so that I can share it with my students when we get closer to prom season. Thanks for sharing this lens with us!

      It is good to know you can buy a prom dress without going broke... I hear from my friends they spend thousands Euros for a prom and most money goes for dresses!

      Neat lens! I always opt for used clothing to keep things within the budget, but it's great to see that there are other options out there. Liked.
