What is your most treasured memory?
This is a fun question that shouldn't take too much stress or anxiety to answer! We all have memories that we love, just share those with the judges. They love being able to get to know contestants outside of pageant weekend.
Where can you shop for pageant outfits?
Now that you have a better idea of what you’re looking to spend on your pageant wardrobe, it’s time to do some research about where you can shop for these outfits. Oh joy, more research… (if you haven’t picked it up by now, there’s a lot that goes into competing in a pageant).
The world of pageantry is very small when it comes to where you can and should be shopping for your outfits. Keep these places in mind when you begin shopping for your wardrobe:
Pageant Planet’s Shop
Okay, this is a no-brainer... Pageant Planet’s Shop is an awesome place to shop online if you don’t have the availability to shop at a pageant store near you. We have hundreds of designers and former titleholders connected to our shop to help you find the perfect outfits and gowns for your wardrobe. Plus you get to shop from the comfort of your couch, what could be better than that!
Pageant Specialty Shops
There are shops all around the world that specialize in just pageant wardrobe - and it’s every pageant girl’s dream come true when she walks into these boutiques. These shops are very different from department stores because they only carry pageant designers.
These designers may be a bit pricey sometimes for someone who is just starting out, but if you have the budget for it, make an appointment at a shop near you to try on as many outfits and gowns as you can before you make a purchase.
This is often a budget-friendly option. Previous contestants and titleholders are always selling their past wardrobe so that they can make room for newer pieces in their own collections.
If you know any previous contestants, you can also reach out to them to see if they are selling any gowns or outfits. Some wouldn’t mind lending it to you if you’re really good friends. This is the best option for contestants who are new to the pageant world and aren’t fully sure if competing is right for them.
Here’s some homework to get you closer to the crown... Do some research and make a list of the top five stores near you that have pageant wardrobe. (Or just head over to the Shop and do some online shopping.)
