Allover Beaded Lace Sheath Gown with Empire Waist. Style S8551
Was not one of my top 5 UNTIL..
I went to my Davids Appt w/ my print out of the dresses I wanted to try on in November. From watching say yes to the dress I pick out dresses I wounld not pick out for myself but wanted to leave all options open. I'm getting married on the beach so I saw myself in a short dress because I'm so little (5"1). The one I really wanted they did not have in the store. Every dress I tried on was a flop because I kept thinking of the short dress. It was time for my last dress.. I didn't even want to try it on. My MOH talked me in to it. And my family was shocked. My dad said "all those other dresses keeps you looking like a little girl... this dress makes you look like a women." I cryied... fell in love and now I can't what to walk down the beach in it.

I initially read all of the other reviews on this dress before my visit to DB and put it on my "maybe" list as everyone swears the picture doesn't do it justice and I wasn't wowed by the picture. I actually tried this on and bought it without even realizing it was the same dress I had viewed online earlier. It fits like a glove and has a very flattering silhouette. Watch out for the tummy area though, it's a bit unforgiving, but nothing some industrial strength shaping undergarments and some extra time on the treadmill can't fix. The beading and lacework is gorgeous and it definitely looks like it should have cost a lot more than it did. This dress is perfect for my outdoor ceremony and fits the vintage glam style I was going for. Do yourself a favor and make it a point to try this dress on.

Try it on! Picture Doesn't Do Justice
Picture online does NOT do justice. I have no idea why David's Bridal had this model sit.. The dress looks and FEELS beautiful. It is light and elegant. Lace + Pearls= Wow and classy, not over the top but simply beautiful. I felt like a bride!
I did wear a slip underneath that made the bottom go out and shape similarly to what a trumpet (a milder mermaid) silhouette would look like. It showed off my curves and still had enough room to move my legs and sit, and light enough to dance.
I have my future Mother-In-Law and best friend to thank:
My mother-in-law prevented me from settling with the first dress I tried knowing I was choosing it because it was way cheaper. She secretly told one of my bridesmaid to go find dresses with lace because that is what I wanted and I immediately tried it on. It was the dress, for me, that made me believe and understand how brides "know" when they have found this dress.
Try it on before you say no!
