I took the advice of the majority to to "go for it" and I ordered the gorgeous cocktail dress from Bebe that I had included in that post.
I had never owned a Bebe dress, so I did not know what to expect. Petra mentioned that Bebe dresses run small and that I should order my size and one size larger just in case.
The problem is that my size was the largest size they offered, so it was that or nothing. I figured that that size would not be big enough, but I would never know if I didn't try, so I went for it.
UPS delivered the dress yesterday and it was as gorgeous in person as it was in its photos. It was also a high quality dress and when I held it up to myself, I thought it would be a close call when I tried it on.
I got out of my boy costume and put on my waist cincher, a Spanx panty and a Spanx cami to smooth things out. I did not wear a bra because the style of the dress screamed "bra-less" to me.
I unzipped the dress, stepped into it and managed to zip it up about one-third of the way. There was no way that the zipper was going any further without damaging the dress, so I sighed, unzipped the dress and removed it.
Before I unzipped, I did look in the mirror and sighed again because I would have really rocked that dress!
I had no Plan B, so I began looking around and I am now considering the Dress Barn confection that accompanies this post.
