Formal Dresses With Pockets

253 Items

Dresses with pockets used to be a rare concept. In recent years, however, this has changed. Many wedding dresses now come with pockets. Women are prioritizing their comfort, and this doesn't have to come at the cost of style. If wedding dresses can come with pockets, then there's no reason you can't find prom dresses with pockets.

Why Don't Dresses Have Pockets?

There's an unusual history as to why dresses typically don't have pockets. In the 17th Century, both women and men had external pockets in their attire. Before the industrial revolution, people didn't have many objects to carry around. As the industrial revolution brought on the start of materialism and consumerism, people began to carry more items in their pockets, creating a bulging look in skirts. Unfortunately for women, fashion then changed the course of our attire for the next couple of decades. In the 19th Century, bulky skirts became unfashionable. As a result, pockets were removed from most women's dresses. However, its the 21st Century, and pockets have made a come back!
