Not Just for Prom

As you probably know, here at Ypsilon Dresses, we are most well known for Prom!  But did you know we also provide dresses for brides, bridesmaids, special events like Quinceañera's, NYE, wedding, or bachelorette parties, cruise dinner dresses, charity galas, and more? Ypsilon Dresses specializes in Prom, Pageant, and Evening wear formal gowns, spanning a wide range of events, and we love it that way! After Prom, can you guess our second most popular event?  That's right, Pageants.  We dress girls from all systems, including but not limited to the Miss America, Miss USA, NAM, Miss International, Mrs. America, Distinguished Young Women, and more!  Are you a pageant contestant? Read below for some resources we have available to you specifically as you select your formalwear.

What Miss Utah Says:

We have years of experience in this pageant system and industry, dressing over 40 state titleholders for national pageant competitions. Read below what our last three Miss Utah titleholders have to say about their experience with Ypsilon.

Visiting Ypsilon is always the highlight of my day! Whatever my style is that day, their friendly staff are always so patient and happy to help me find my perfect dress!
— JessiKate Riley, Miss Utah 2017
As Miss Utah, I wore everything from gorgeous, fitted cocktail dresses to stunning, flowing evening gowns.  Every dress I wore was incredible quality and the staff at Ypsilon made sure of it before I left the store. Andrea and the rest of the staff are a dream to work with and I would recommend Ypsilon to ANYONE looking for a dress!
— Lauren Wilson, Miss Utah 2016
During my time as Miss Utah I was able to work with Ypsilon and the experience was nothing but positive! The selection of dresses was outstanding and the quality of pieces matched the excellence of the staff. They had a dress for every event and occasion, and were so accommodating to my needs. Ypsilon is definitely the place to go!
— Krissia Hall, Miss Utah 2015

Largest, Most Comprehensive Selection in the State:

We have over 5,000 designer dresses in stock.  Come in with your desired shape, color, and style, and we will have a plethora of options for you to try on.  If you have a dress in mind that we don't have in stock, we will try on dresses from that designer to find the perfect size, and then order it in, shipped to the store to make sure it is your perfect fit.  If we don’t have it, we can always always order it for you!

We only carry top of the line designer styles in the highest quality.  With each dress that leaves the store, we provide a quality control system which includes 1-2 hours of inspection and steaming.  Your dress will be in perfect condition.

We also keep record of dresses bought by titleholders from our store for this particular system to aid in preventing the same dress being worn on stage at the state pageant.

Pageant Stylists:

We have experienced pageant stylists that you can request for your personal, one-on-one appointment. Read a little about each of them below, and feel free to request to work with one of them when you schedule your appointment.
