I have no idea why, but I agree its frustrating. I don’t want to moon any future family members at our rehearsal.

Try H&M. i saw a similar dress there like this one a few months ago. They had it in white, cream, light pink, and couple of other colors I believe.

What about adding opaque tights?

I bought this one and it’s decently long! I know it’s not your ideal neck line. Not super white though.. more cream but still shimmery. I replaced the thin belt with a thicker flowery lace one.

I think the high hem is like that to balance out the formal and traditional feel of the lace. Anyhow, I agree it’s frustrating!

@hollyberry4:  Thats really pretty! 

All I have to say is: Ugh, I agree. I’m 36, I can’t walk around my rehearsal dinner in a miniskirt!

@LilDrAnya:  It zips all the way up the back. If you know how to alter things (which I do not, unfortunately haha), you could make a V in the back to widen the shoulders.

Not an off the shoulder dress, but for my shower I wore a short sleeve lace panel dress from Forever 21 and it was surprisingly long for that store – came to just above my knee.  It was surprisingly higher quality lace than I would have expected.  No one believed me when I said I got it at Forever 21!

@hollyberry4:  I bought that dress for my rehearsal dinner as well!  It’s so beautiful in person. 🙂  I’d describe it as peach-colored though.
