Here is my dress. Lace with cap sleeves. Was originally strapless but I had them add sleeves. I am not really that modest 🙂 but I think it counts!

If you don’t mind buying online, search for LDS or Temple ready gowns. There are a lot of super cute designs with higher necklines/sleeves. Most of the actual physical stores are in Utah though. I considered a couple but decided I am so oddly propotioned that I needed to try it on.

I would definitely look at http://www.latterdaybride.com  even if it’s just for inspiration. 

I was pretty pleased to find some add on sleeve options at David’s that they didn’t advertise, and I know many seamstresses can make them pretty easily. 

This is from my first try on, and they are just tucked in.  Afer I picked it up the other day, my mom has removed the bottom layer of the sleeves and sewed them in.

I’m not very modest and I haven’t went dress shopping yet but I can’t get this dress out of my head.

It’s Allure Bridals Style # 8714

Mine is a strapless but I will be wearing it with a bolero to add coverage/make it more modest.  (Forgive the dorky picture–I was unable to contain my excitement when my dress came in almost two months late and just  a couple weeks before the wedding–and IT FIT!!!)

This is a Maggie Sottero’s “Grace Kelly” but I couldn’t find it anywhere to try it on…
