It’s almost prom season, which means it’s time to start searching for the perfect dress — we’re talking long prom dresses. Whether you’ve got a prom dress budget that could rival Meghan Markle’s wedding dress fund or you don’t care to spend a lot of money on a dress you’ll likely only wear once, we’ve got you. More importantly, we are here for your comfort, friends.

Why suffer in heels all night long when you can boogie through the night wearing low-key comfy slides? With a long prom dress, no one will ever know. Prom is all about embracing your own personal style and taking it to the max, so whether you’re ready to go full princess mode or want a two-piece prom dress, or prefer a suit, you have to just do you.

Arguably, the best part of prom is the fashion, followed shortly by the dancing. If you can’t enjoy the dancing portion of the night because of your gorgeous, albeit, painful heels, then what’s the point? Given that slides are HOT right now, why not just throw those bad boys on and hide them under a beautiful long gown?

To help make the dress search a bit easier, we have rounded up 18 long prom dresses that you can hide your flats under.
