I walked into the bridal shop with the Allure 8900 written down as my dream dress. They didn’t have it, and I knew I didn’t want to pay that much for a dress, so it was probably a good thing! I ended up buying a strapless dress and having custom sleeves added — with a V into the neckline and full back coverage and buttons like the Alure 8900. They even printed out the photo of the dress and stapled it to the tag on my dress so the seamstress could see what I liked. I had my final fitting today, and while the sleeves aren’t *exactly* the way I wanted them, they look like they belong with the dress, not like they were added as an afterthought. The cost was way less than we had expected, too. 

So, if you’re having trouble finding a sleeved gown, custom work is an option, and some brands have dresses with sleeve options. I was eyeing some Alfred Angelo and Jasmine dresses that had sleeve attachments or could have been made with sleeves.

Here’s mine; I opted to add sleeves to my dress because hardly any dresses come with them! 

You can have a seamstress add sleeves to any dress. Just pick out a style, ask if it will work, and be instrumental in the design process.

There’s actually a LOT of dresses with sleeves in Utah especially for winter monthed wedding.. since its so cold there and so much of the population is LDS (Means a modest wedding dress.) 

 

here’s mine, though not for the cold and not exactly for the cold

 

 

you might try googling around, Allure has some AWESOME ones (they make a lot of dresses with sleeves for some reason..)
