Off-the-shoulder A-Line with Side-draped Bodice Style T9861
This dress is gorgeous! I just bought it today and as soon as I tried it on, I knew it was the one. It is a bit plain, but I'm having a flower sewn onto the side and having it altered to tea length to make it unique.

I absolutely love this dress. The neckline was unique to any other dress I tried on, but it still had the simple elegance and fabric draping I was looking for. The corset back is kind of a hassle to get in and out of, but the final effect is completely worth it. It made me look skinny and gave me instant cleavage - I've never felt so sexy in a dress before! And on top of all of that, it was on sale!! Truly unbeatable value.

I love this dress. I originally saw this dress online and made it a fave. Then I fell in love with chiffon dress styles. I didn't think I'd like the satin. But when I tried it on, I just loved how it looked and made me feel--so skinny! Only thing I didn't like was the plain train. Couple of things when you get it altered--have them make the shoulder seam diagonal instead of straight and if needed, have them lower the under arm hole. I used Hollywood tape just in case, but didn't really need it since it was altered so well. Also, be careful when you tighten the corset so you don't 1) get back fat pushed up and 2) the sides look like you've been stuffed into it.

I tried on about 10 dresses at David's and 3 at another store. This was about the 5th dress I tried on. Everything I tried on after just didn't compare. I loved how the corset back gave me a waist and flattered me in all the right places. It is satin but it is a light weight satin so it isn't too heavy. The train isn't too long (which is a plus for me). The dress is elegant and sophisticated. I am thinking about jazzing it up a bit with some beading down the neckline or having an embellishment put on the hip where the roushing meets. But even without any added detail the dress is great. I can't wait to wear it in July!
