Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
I Knew It Would Be Perfect
I needed a dress for our 25th wedding anniversary. I saw this dress the first time I checked David's website and had that unexplainable feeling in my gut that this would be the dress for me.
I originally thought I wanted "white" again but when I saw how beautiful the dress is in ivory and how well it suited my complexion, I was sold. It fits perfectly and hides any "figure flaws". Didn't even bother trying on other dresses.
Only one problem- being patient while waiting to wear it!

My first pick!
This is the first dress I tried on because I saw it online and fell in love.
We are having a Vegas wedding and I wanted something shorter.
I tried this one on first and then I obliged everyone else that I brought and tried on about 12 more, but I kept going back to this one.
I did make 2 alterations to it....mostly because I wasn't too eager about strapless....first I changed the neckline to a sweetheart and I turned the jacket into cap sleeves. I love love love the dress itself tho. It is flattering to a bigger and chesty figure!

I have read all the other reviews of this dress and I simply agree with everyone's comments. I am a short, full-figured woman. I am in my 50's and facing my third wedding. Much later in life I can appreciate how difficult it is to find something suitable and comfortable for this union. Third time, however, is supposed to be the charm and my gosh...is this dress ever. It fit me like a glove and is gorgeous. It is not, however, tea-length on me (I am 5ft tall) but a floor length but it's stunning. The ivory tone with the crystals/beads is not overwhelming, but very classy.

I bought my dress early on in my search, but I wanted to at least try dresses on at one more shop. I picked out about 6 dresses, this one being the first, as soon as I put it on, I didn't want to take it off. It was perfect! My mom and best friend were with me and they both said it was very "me." I made my own belt and wore a custom-made shrug. I love the tea-length, it was perfect for our walking in San Francisco wedding! No bustle to worry about tripping or stepping on.
