Which is just as well as we have over ONE HUNDRED styles for you to choose from.

Your Prom Questions
What can I expect at my Prom Appointment?
You will be shown around our showroom, featuring our dazzling display of prom and evening dresses. You can pick and choose what you would like to try on to your hearts desire. When you have chosen a mini collection, one of our lovely lot will take you to one of our private changing rooms to help you change whilst your guests relax on our sofas awaiting your grand entrance!
How far in advance shall I start looking for a Prom Dress?
You can start prom dress shopping whenever you like, however, the best time to begin your search for a prom dress would be around late January - February. The majority of our complete, new collections will have arrived and be ready to try on by then which gives you first dibs on what you are able to wear to your prom (we never sell the same dress to the same school twice). This also allows enough time for your dress to arrive and have any necessary alterations.
What is your price range?
Our gowns start from as little as £29.00 in our sale range and our most expensive prom dress is currently £399. So you can expect an entire array of prices between those two figures. There is plenty to choose from to fit every budget.
What sizes do you stock?
Our sample sizes are mostly the UK average of 12-16 but we do have plenty of gowns that are higher or lower than those sizes for you to try on!
Can I wear fake tan/make up?
Should I bring anything to my appointment?
You are welcome to bring a strapless bra that you might wear with the dress but it is not essential as pretty much all of our gowns have built in cups (yay!)
Your favorite pair of comfy, high heels wouldn't go amiss either for a little bit of extra height if you plan on wearing some for your event.
But mostly, a smile and an open mind to trying new styles is always fun!
How long does an appointment last?
Your prom appointment will last up to 90 minutes, however we know that sometimes a big decision may take a little longer! If you're still stuck deciding between two dresses, we won't rush you!
How many guests can I bring with me?
You are welcome to bring with you two guests for your prom appointment.
When should I order/buy my dress?
As soon as your heart is telling you yes! If you know that you'll go home and carry on thinking about 'The Dress', you know its 'The One'.
Can I bring a young child to my appointment?
So please refrain from bringing children between the ages of 1-10 along to your appointment.
Are your gowns Made To Measure?
Ah! Some are and some are not! Our team will let you know which ones are 'Off the Peg' and ready to go home with you that day! And we always have a beautiful small collection of 'One of a Kind' dresses that are extremely rare or entirely exclusive just for us.
Do you charge for Alterations?
At Bonsoire, we do not have an alteration service. We do, however, have a couple of seamstresses that we HIGHLY recommend as we know that their skills, craftsmanship and friendliness is second to none! Just ask us for their details and we will be happy to point you in their direction. This does mean, that they will charge their own fee for alterations and are in no way connected to Bonsoire.
Do you charge for appointments?
No way! Our service comes as part of the package and even if you don't find your dream dress with us, we will be more than happy to direct you where you might find it elsewhere!
When will my dress arrive?
If you have ordered a prom dress from Bonsoire, you can expect it to arrive within 11 weeks from purchase date. After which we will steam it for you and then give you a call to arrange a convinient time for you to come and collect it (and try it on again if you like!)
