Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
Perfect for me!
I never thought I'd want a 'tea-length' dress but this dress was perfect! I tried on about 10 others and loved 3 of them, but this one was the only one that made my sister, mom, and myself teary eyed! Some pictures I've seen of people in it make it look a little frumpy, but on me I didn't feel that way at all! I'm tall, 5'8", which I think helped! I'm getting married outside by a lake and think this dress will be the perfect fit. I will not be wearing the little jacket, for me personally, it makes it a little too matronly, I think it's perfect without it!

I tried on 3 dresses and this one was the third one. I cried when i had it on because it looked perfect and it looked like my mom's wedding dress when she got married in 1964. She passed away Dec of 2008 and I miss her so much. So, this was a sign and I knew it was the dress for me.

Charming, comfortable and flattering!
I had tried on a couple more traditional wedding dresses but they didn't feel like me. As soon as I tried on this dress, I knew it was the one. It was exactly what I had in mind - a little retro, tea-length, lightweight, comfortable, moved well, and was flattering. As a plus size woman, I wanted something that showed my curves without making me look huge. I liked the coverage of the shrug but it will need to be steamed to lay flat. The ivory colour with the beads make it a little more dressy but the shorter length keeps the more casual vibe I was hoping for. I am really happy this is going to be my dress - and the $499 price can't be beat! I also got the lace open-toe shoes to match, as it just looked so cute and retro.
