    Military Ball Gown

    Advertisements
    I'm either looking for someone selling a size 16 or 18 miliary ball gown or floor length gown, or a website that anyone knows of that I can get one. I need it by September 11th, that's when the all ranks ball is. I'm always hesitant to get dresses offline because I don't know if they are made well or not, so, let me know of some good sites that you would recommend. I'm really not supposed to go over $60, that's the budget DF and I decided on, not including shoes, of course haha, but, I could go over a bit probably.

    Dillards clearance rack. That's where I got mine from. And I think it was for $29.00

    Yup. I'm a size 18-20....do they have dillards in your area though? If not, I would suggest going on the torrid website and ordering something (or lanebryant.com)....I know what it's like to be on the "plus size" side.

    I do not. I never even thought of Torrid. I looked on Deb's website but they didn't have anything. Yea, it's a pain sometimes to find bigger sizes in things, esp. formal wear and lingere ha, but, I'm proud of my curves, so, I don't really mind ha.

    OK I was only able to find 2. These are both (apple red ) dresses from Davids Bridal. Both were worn for weddings and only worn once.

    Here are some pics( I cant fit into them so its hard to show you what they look like on)

    This first one is a size 16( hem of dress is tacked up(can easily be let down).

    FRONT




    BACK





    This next one I wore in a wedding for a close friend.

    It is a size 20 and is tea length

    Front(sorry its wrinkly, I had no idea it fell of the hanger)





    Back & Neck of dress




    The neck of the dress comes apart to put on easier I guess






    Found a picture of me in the dress( I am on the left)... please excuse the bulge( I was pregnant with Brenna at the time)




    If you think you'd be interested in either one PM me and we can talk. If not no big deal.
