Fun and Comfortable!
I am thrilled with this dress. For our beach wedding, I wanted something lightweight and comfy....and this is! Everything else I tried on felt as though I was trapped in the dress and weighed down, this dress was so much lighter and I was able to move. I didn't go with the extra slip underneath...that gave way too much poof in the skirt for my liking, I had actually decided against this dress for that reason until I tried it back on without the slip and bam....I loved it! The couple of layers of crinoline under the skirt was more than enough for me. It does need the proper undergarments...a long bustier bra with boning is probably the best...I tried it on with that and a basic strapless and while it doesn't look any different on the outside with either one, it does slip down at the bodice with only a stapless bra. Fit runs a little small as with most dresses, so don't be upset that you may have to go up a couple of sizes!

Me to a "Tea"
I have known I wanted to wear a tea length gown for several years but finding one had been near impossible. Everything was "mermaids and poofs." It was the 3rd dress I tried and once it was on I didn't want to take it off. I highly recommend purchasing the "slip" for underneath to give the extra touch to the dress. If you want vintage chic this is it!

This is a beautiful dress! There's champagne colored threading on the flower applique of the ivory dress with a few beads and pearls. I'm 5'8" and the dress hit about mid calf. The A-line skirt is very flattering for plus sizes.The tulle of the skirt needed constant arrangement to lay flat, but the consultant said that steaming would fix the problem. It really is a beautiful dress- very vintage, very classy, could wear it to a casual wedding, a vegas wedding, or a fancy evening wedding.

This dress had newly arrived in the store. I almost didn't try it on because of all the embellishment on it, but once I did, I was so in love with the look of the dress, the feel of it. It felt so perfect.
My mom lives out of state so I purchased it on my own. When I got home, I printed a large photo of this gown and sent it to her. She called me on the phone when she received it and was in tears and said that the dress was so beautiful and elegant and it was so perfect for me, so that made me happy.
