I am wondering out of curiosity why girls say they have a total princess dress and all they talk about is big poffy ball gowns.
I have observed in my 24 years of life that every real princess has sleeves to their gown, and not all of them have the biggest poffiest gown.
So can we now conclude that a princess dress is a dress with sleeves?!

I think the “princess dress” idea comes more from the Disney princesses than actual princesses.

I think “princess dress” is one of those subjective things. Some use the term to refer to a dress with a lot of sparkle, or a lot of poof, or OOT trimmings, or even just what makes them feel like a princess.

When I think princess dress, I think this.
but i think its more about how the dress makes you FEEL.
you know its the dress when its so beautiful, you dont want to take it off. you feel like a princess!

I agree, to me princess is poofy. I think mine was a princess dress, since it was a Disney dress. 🙂

I think princess is just to differentiate from the term sexy, sleek or sophisticated. I think when a bee says she has a princess dress that it is a bit more innocent or soft as opposed to form fitting.

@unixfairy: that’s a good point..I can wear any dress and feel like a princess, of course.
but what i was really referring to is the “princess” style of dress..
