I bought this dress last year for last years ball and then didn't go. So now I have a $170 dress just sitting in my closet and it is too big now. I tried it on again the other day and it needs taken in up top.

Oh girl, and I am NOT saying this to be snarky or mean, I promise you I'm not. These are the kinds of things I just feel like people need to be honest about. You need a MUCH better bra for that dress. I know this is just in the store to try it on, but I really hope you have a great bra to wear with this.

I agree. I had a crappy strapless bra on that day that just kept falling down. I was going to purchase a better supportive bra/corset that sucked my tummy in and boosted up the girls. Lol

2 moms liked this

Ours was Wednesday, but I no longer feel comfortable posting pictures of my family on here.

This may sound like a stupid question...but at the risk of looking stupid im going to ask...are retired service members welcomed? My DH is retired and was when we got together but i have always wanted to go to one of these balls since hearing him talk about them

I don't see why not.  Good question though.
