Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsA111315 THE Dress.
I wanted a vintage, tea length dress. This dress was perfect.
We made an appointment at the David's Bridal in North Attleboro Massachusetts. The young lady who waited on us was so helpful without being overbearing or pushy. My friend and I pulled a bunch of short dresses in my price range and I wasn't too thrilled until I found THIS dress. Firstly, the photo on this website does NOT do it justice. As a matter of fact, it looks nothing like it. It flares out much more. Mine did not come with the sash shown. It is comfortable but still structured enough to compliment a girl's figure. I have a small(er) bust and big hips, so this dress is a perfect fit for my shape. This dress needed NO alterations. I was shocked.
I ended up getting a shrug on clearance since I did not want my shoulders showing. Also bought the sash at this David's. It seemed busy on the rack, but surprisingly they worked well together. You will need a special bra to wear under this dress. While it has built in support, a strapless bra will show in the back. Thank you Davids!

I ordered this late last year with the hope of losing weight. Today it zipped up and looks adorable! I'm adding sleeves and wearing a purple petticoat to match my purple peep toes and it looks fabulous! This is a perfect reception dress, so fun and flirty. The pictures really don't do it justice, highly, highly recommend!

I love all of the details on this dress!
I had marked it as one of my "favorites" because it's one of the few tea length dresses currently available. I thought I liked other dresses better and didn't have very high hopes that this would be THE dress - I was wrong!
The photos/model online do nothing for this dress. The detail of the layering effect really needs to be experienced in person.
I attached a photo of the three patterned layers: bottom layer has a lace design printed on organza, the middle layer has lace appliques on tulle, and the top organza layer has the cross banding skirt and applique flowers with metallic thread cascading down the dress.
I agree with other reviewers that this dress is retro, modern, flirty, and fun all rolled into one fabulous dress.
Make sure to check out Melissa Sweet's video on David Bridal's site to hear her talk about how she creates her designs, the lace, and the layering effect. I love knowing more about her design aesthetic.
I was told by my sales consultant that the dress is being discontinued (hence the amazing sale price) so if you love it - get it!
