Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
Love, love, love this dress.
My fianc�� and I were planning our dream wedding in September. I had purchased a different dress from DB. I loved the dress that I purchased, however the traditional wedding we were planning fell through after a quick trip to City Hall to work out some health insurance issues through work, and then unexpected financial burdens. We quickly changed pace and decided to go with an informal reception, however my chapel length train and really formal dresses was not going to work. I was devastated, and I signed the receipt saying " all sales final." I thought it couldn't hurt to ask, and the nice manager at my local DB agreed to exchange the dress for another one. This was the only dress I tried on. It's beautiful and perfect! It really has a vintage feel, and I had already purchased the Maribelle shoes in regency color, so I ordered the same color sash for the dress. The darker sash really accentuated the hourglass figure, and made my waist look tiny! I love the sparkle and the fun of this dress. I think I like it better than the other dress! It changed my whole attitude about the wedding, and made me so happy! I can't wait to wear it on my wedding day, and I love the dress so much I think I will dye it another color after the wedding so that I can wear it for different occasions.

The dress was beautiful! I do wish the jacket had sleeves though! Also, I don't recommend using a dark color ribbon around the waist. It tended to cut me in half in funny ways that I didn't realize until I saw the photos. The dress is light for a wedding gown, easy to move it, does not restrict anything and is pretty comfortable. I felt beautiful wearing it and I wish I had excuse to wear it again! Perfect!

This dress is really gorgeous in person. Very flattering to curvy brides! I feel it may be too plain - the dress has small beading/rhinestones throughout and a small line of beading at the top/neckline. The bolero can be flattering but can also make you feel like your arms are sausages (the sleeves end right past the tip of the shoulder - potentially the largest part of your arm). The dress has boning and some tulle to give it shape. It hangs very nicely. I tried the Ivory lace over Ivory satin and felt the lace was washed out by the background. It comes with an ivory belt but makes it seem very "Blah". My suggestion? Spice it up with a colored sash and some bright pumps.... Saw some pictures where people dyed the tulle underneath! Can be fabulous, may just have to dress it up!

Love at 2nd site
I tried this dress on 2 x's. The first time it was just me and my BFF (about a month ago). We went in with the expectation to narrow down the number of selections for my 2nd appointment with all my bridal party along with the "moms".
The 1st time, I wore the jacket, I wasn't thrilled by it. I cast it aside. I did find a dress I thought was "The One".
During my 2nd appointment I tried on my winning dress, but my future mom in law couldn't envision the "tea-length". Not to mention everyone was very "eh" about it. So to give her an idea, I tried this dress on again. This time, I put a watermelon sash on w/o the jacket, matching peep toes (watermelon), my birdcage veil and voila my dream dress came true!! I was soo happy. My mom was crying, my mom in law was so stunned and my bridal party...well let's just say there wasn't enough tissue to go around.
This just goes to show you everything deserves a 2nd chance. I bought my dress w/o hesitation and I couldn't be happier. Thanks DB!!!
