Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
Love this dress!
When I first saw this dress online I knew it was going to be the dress I purchased. I absolutely adore it! It is so flattering on me. I'm having my seamstress turn the jacket into a cap sleeve so I can be a little more comfortable (I didn't like the way the jacket kept moving).

Had been to a more upscale boutique earlier in the day and was trying on sample sizes that barely fit. On the way home, stopped at David's Bridal (the one place I said I was absolutely NOT going to go...) under the pressure of my mother. (This really isn't a bad review!!!) Was seen in a snap by a consultant. Since we're having a very informal wedding, I really wanted a tea length dress and the ones that I had been looking at online were way out of budget. She told me that they had two in the store that were in my budget and showed me both in the magazine. So, she brought all kinds of dresses and I tried on the long gowns first.....Nope. Of course mom liked them, but not me. Last dress I tried on was this one. LOVED IT! Looked exactly like a dress I saw online that I had fallen in love with but at a price that wouldn't break the bank! I can't wait for it to come in so I can go shoe shopping to find the shoes to match my sash color!!

Growing on Me
After trying on dresses that made me look like I was squeezing out of the top out of a white volcano, I tried this one on. Although the model is leaning forward that is about where the dress falls. There is lining and tulle underneath. The top has boning and it pushes down on your waist so you get an extra bump on your hip (not want we really want). Make sure you get the sash that comes with it. If I hadn't mentioned it I probably wouldn't have received it. You can't really tell in the picture but there are small "crystals" sewn in clusters on the dress.
Bolero - I am a bit mixed on this part of the dress. It doesn't exactly fall on the smallest part of your arm and I already feel like a line backer.
With all of that said, I do like this dress. Originally thought I would wear my hair down but I think hair up would be more flattering.

I had looked at some other dresses and then this one caught my attention. I didn't try it on the first time in the store, I kept looking at it online and decided to look at the reviews...I couldn't believe how much they expressed my thoughts...I"m not a young bride, not my first marriage and I'm a plus size....I went to the store the following weekend and when I came out of the dressing room...my friend teared up and said that is your dress....I love how I felt in it...It was a great fit...I can't wait to wear it.....
