I am looking to wear a tea length,1950’s style prom dress for my wedding. There are several companies on line that seem to have beautiful dresses. Wondering if anyone has used them and had a particularly great experience? Concerned about not being able to try dress on. Thanks!

I went with dolly couture, and had an amazingly wonderful experience. My dress was custom to my measurements, which really was awesome, because I’m short and plus size. They have a showroom in NYC, and L.A., if you wanted to go in and try on some samples. good luck with your search!

I know what you mean I just bought me tea length dress without being able to try it on… I bought mine threw Ouma on Etsy! She is really easy to work with and is open to working out any changes with you. I wont have my dress for another 3ish weeks but she has nothing but good reviews!

I’m having a dress custom made that is heavily inspired by the Dolly Couture Beverlywood dress. I’ve heard great things about Dolly Couture, but I opted for an independent dressmaker because I wanted to alter a number of things on the Beverlywood, and the price difference was negligible (really lucked out there!). Etsy is also a great place to look!

If you are a “vintage” size, then you should be able to find a real vintage dress and get it altered if need be. I bought mine on Etsy for $95(!!) and I lovr it. It takes a lot of searching but it’s so worth it for the style and quality! Here’s a picture of my dress:

Not sure if mine was really 50s style enough but if you did want a tea length dress you could try on then Essence of Australia D1253 could be a good option. I wore it so am a bit biased! The skirt may not be ‘poufy’ enough to fit being 50’s style tho. It definitely had the twirl factor though, I was like a little girl on the dance-floor, couldn’t stop doing twirls as they were so satisfying with the skirt flying out!
