    I’m wearing one for my wedding for exactly the same reasons you listed – a full length gown just isn’t me. Wedding is informal and fun, etc, etc. I’m a 14 street size and have some serious hips :)  

    here’s me in the sample. I’m going to have my dress shortened a bit (to make the tea length) and ill remove most if not all of the crinoline to make it less poofy.

    I wore a size 16 tea length gown. I chose tea length mainly becaus I worked entirely too hard on my shoes to cover them up.


    And the shoes, of course.

    I love the color and the top.  Glad you are taking down some of the poofiness.  Do wear a short heel (I’m a flat lover also) like these.  You will look sensational and make your hair very curly with a lovely small bird cage hair piece.

    Good luck!

    Yay! I love tea length! My dress is a little bit shorter than tea length, but I think it is similar enough to not really matter :) I’m a street size 14 right now and think I rock my dress. I say choose a dress you feel good in, and own it!

    I voted “I love it and I wore it” which technically isn’t true because I won’t wear it until NEXT Wed!!!!!!!!

    This is a size 20 that I had altered to be tea-length and then I added the black tulle.

    I think as long as you have shapely legs you’re good to go! Tea length is to def show off legs! I’m a size 6 but have stumps for legs.. no nice shape at all and I look terrrrrible in tea length. I don’t think it matters what size you are but it’s all about your shape!

    I think I clicked “not a fan” but I meant to choose that I love tea length dresses. I’m wearing a custom made tea lengthh dress for my wedding next year.
