Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
It is so me!!!
My husband and I planned our wedding in only 3 weeks and I just wanted a simple yet elegant short dress. We went to David's Bridal a week before the wedding, hoping to find somethingjust off the rack. My friend took over the dressing room, I tried on about 6 dresses before this dress came along, my mother picked it out, and as soon as I put it on my friend said that "it was so me" and it was the perfect fit! I bought it on the spot!

This dress was perfect for my summer garden wedding. It was comfortable, romantic, and elegant.
My seamstress was able to easily hem the dress and let it out, and added hooks to the jacket so it stayed in place. I found the jacket to be quite comfortable. The sash wouldn't stay in place, so I got rid of it altogether. I had the gown hemmed several inches, which made the biggest difference in its appearance. As I'm not quite 5'4", the unaltered length was not flattering, even with heels. I highly recommend altering the length on this dress and wearing heels for the most flattering look.

Stylish and Affordable
I went to David's Bridal on a whim, thinking that it would be an easy place to try out a variety of dress types but scoffing at the idea of actually buying anything there. How silly! I knew I wanted a tea length, retro looking dress for my vintage summer wedding and found exactly what I was looking for at a reasonable price. I'm not sure why this dress is categorized as "plus size," since I bought it in a 10 and by the wedding had taken it in to be an 8. It's flattering on all body types and very comfortable. I bought a slightly wider sash and dropped the jacket to personalize the look. I highly recommend!

When I got engaged I was so excited to marry the man of my dreams, until someone asked where I was planning on getting my dress. I had NO idea where I could find a plus size dress that would flatter me, and be fitting for my age (21). I went to davids bridal and fell in LOVE with this dress. It hit all the spots I wanted it to and covered all the places I wanted covered. When I went to look at dresses I thought I would be buying a long dress but I didn't. I tried it on a knew this was the one. I added a purple sash, and it sparkled. I did wear the shrug and didn't notice it bothering me. I got so many compliments; it fit so well that many people thought it was made just for me! Best dress I could have ever bought! It was just right for our outdoor ceremony in May, and I could dance in it at the reception! My husband loved it too!
