Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
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.

I loved the photo I saw, but I wasn't hot on the idea of a tea length wedding gown (I always picture myself with a train). But when I tried this on, I just spent the rest of my appointment comparing every dress to this one. It is so fun, and moves so well. Our wedding is more casual and definitely a party, and this dress is just perfect. The lace is so pretty, and the shrug is just adorable! Definitely a flattering dress if you have any curves!

My Fiance and i are planning a more casual picnic theme for our wedding.. and when we decided that I started looking for more casual tea length dresses.. I found 4 or 5 styles online that i wanted to try on when i went for my appt the consultant told me the first 4 styles i had on the list were internet styles only. Not even 5 minutes in the door and I was already discouraged.. But she said there is one that we have in the store and she went to check to see if they had it in my size.. Well they did and when she brought it to me i was a little hesitant about it because I wasnt too crazy about the ivory.. well needless to say the second I tried it on and looked in the mirror i was sold.. I fell in love with this dress instantly.. its very flattering to a fuller figured woman... I would highly recommend this dress to anyone! its simply gorgeous!

we are having a small wedding and when i saw this dress i thought it was perfect, but of course i never thought i would actually look good in any dress. this is the first dress and only dress i tried on when i got to DB and it was the only one in my size. i was so in love with it and i couldnt believe how perfect it fit. this dress is great for a plus size woman and the little shrug is so comfortable. it was meant for me and i cant believe i never expected to have my dream dress !!!
