My dress from Babyonline did have the elastic belt in it (and it's not even strapless).

Or would that be something extra to ask for?

both babyonline and monica bridal add those elastic belts inside their dresses.  I don't find them that useful, thus I will use fashion tapes as extra precaution!

I meant that at prettypigpig

 

 

adcarter41 - that's awesome! if it wasn't for those elastic bands, I wouldn't even consider a strapless dress.  When I tried them on though, I saw how snug they fit and how it wouldn't be a struggle keeping it up, so I loved it.  I also like how you can have the elastic on tight, but the dress doesn't look like it's squeezing you in and you don't get those rolls right under your armpits!

Depending on how endowed you are, you might want to make a special request for a wider elastic. I think it's called an invisible bra? Both my strapless dresses from Monica Bridal have the elastic strap but it is only about 3/4" wide so don't expect a ton of support. It is nice to know I won't have to wear a bra though.

30 Dec 2010  15:00:34  Vancouver  Shipment In Transit. 
30 Dec 2010  14:40:13  Vancouver  Shipment Received At Transit Point. 
30 Dec 2010  17:22:00  Canada Others  Shipment Held In Warehouse. Follow Up Actions Underway. 
30 Dec 2010  15:45:00  Canada Others  Onforwarded For Delive 

 

Can someone help me understand this shipping information.  It looks like the shipment is being held in the warehouse as looking at the time codes "follow up actions are underway".  Does this mean they are holding my dress?  At first I thought Onforward for delivery meant it was being delivered to me but if you look at the times, they aren't in order.  17:22 is the last entry.  Or am I wrong here?  I'm worried I'm not going to get my dress.

Imara,

 

I am a 90lbs chick, so I don't have any meat to "grab" the dress! and the elastic straps don't help that much! fashion tape is the answer!
