You can also order most of your gowns at the last minute with no charge for rush delivery. But enough talk—let’s go shopping!

1. Dramatic Beaded Back Jersey: Style #71645

A simple but dazzling fit and flare sheath, this jersey gown features a strapless sweetheart neckline made modest by a full illusion upper bodice and back. The high neck front is beaded around the arms with a crystal choker and necklace design at the throat. The low V-back is softened by illusion embellished with crystals and beading. Falling from the figure hugging hip line that creates a touch of a mermaid silhouette, the skirt finishes with a short sweep train.

Available in: Sapphire, Seafoam, and Tangerine (as shown)

2. Layered Lace Sheer Mermaid: Style #71649

Undeniably sexy, this sultry fit and flare sheath features two-tone lace over a mini dress lining. Ivory lace adorns the upper bodice with its sweetheart neckline, criss-cross straps, and low open back. From waist to the hem of the mini underdress, contrast lace sparkles with sequins, then continues with lace appliques to the wide lace hem of the sheer skirt creating a mermaid silhouette. A modest sweep train finishes the look.

Available in:  Black/Ivory (as shown), Gold/Ivory, and Turquoise/Ivory

3. Slit Skirt Lace Mermaid: Style #71650

Essentially two dresses in one, this fit and flare gown is composed of a jersey mini dress with a sweetheart neckline made modest by a sheer lace overlay that finishes as a bateau neck. Wide-set straps are slightly off the shoulder and follow to the low scoop back. From the hem of the mini-dress, gathered lace falls in a mermaid silhouette with a sexy front slit and a modest sweep train.

Available in: Ivory/Nude (as shown), Midnight, and Red

4. Open Back Lace & Taffeta Trumpet: Style #71661

Dramatic and classic, this fit and flare dress features a nude illusion bodice with contrast lace appliques. Following the line of the sweetheart underdress, lace frames the arms and creates a necklace effect on the modest high scoop neck front bodice, and then continues to frame the open back. The taffeta skirt has enough weight to create a trumpet silhouette and finishes in a modest sweep train.

Available in: Black (as shown), Claret, and Lavender

5. Mikado & Lace Illusion: Style #71669

Strategically placed lace appliques over an illusion bodice make modest  work of this dramatic fit and flare gown. Lace frames the sweetheart under-bodice and high neckline then creates a dramatic vertical pattern down the center back. The solid mikado skirt features a moderate sweep train and has enough weight to give the dress a bit of a trumpet silhouette.

Available in: Coral, Ivory (as shown), and Prussian Blue

6. Lacy Sheer Mermaid: Style #71676

A sexy lace strapless sweetheart mini dress combines with an illusion bodice and a sheer lace fit and flare mermaid skirt to create this unique gown. Lace frames the deep V neckline and back of the bodice while a nude illusion overlay creates a modest scoop neck halter with a flirty keyhole back. Lace appliques continue down the sheer skirt to the wide lace hemline and understated sweep train.

Available in: Black/Nude, Ivory/Nude (as shown), and Red/Nude

7. Two-Tone Lacy Trumpet: Style #71677

A modest high neck illusion halter embellished with contrast lace appliques make this fit and flare sheath an understated beauty. Lace adorns the bodice in a sweetheart pattern in front, creates a stunning back detail, and continues below the waist. The satin skirt hugs the hips creating a trumpet silhouette and finishes with a floor-length hem.

Available in: Aqua, Burgundy (as shown), and Cobalt

8. Beaded Chiffon Mermaid Sweep: Style #71691

Dramatic and demure, this fit and flare sheath combines a modest high neck illusion bodice with beaded lace appliques and a full, gathered mermaid skirt. Beaded lace follows the sweetheart underdress and creates a necklace effect at the throat. More beaded lace appliques combine with diagonal lines of beading to frame the open back and create a decorative openwork pattern to just below the knee. Gathered tulle in a classic mermaid silhouette finishes in a modest sweep train.

Available in: Nude/Blue (as shown), Nude/Red, and Nude/Silver

9. Daring Beaded Bodice & Chiffon: Style #71693

Contrast beading over an illusion bodice brings a dramatic touch to this A-line ball gown. The deep V-neck is softened by wide illusion straps that are edged in beading and jewels and follow around to frame the open back. More crystals and beading create an obi belt design at the waist and the chiffon skirt, flowing to a floor-length hem, is accented by a sexy off-center thigh high slit.

Available in: Lilac, Midnight, and Red (as shown)

10. Illusion Beaded Back Jersey: Style #71696

This fit and flare sheath with a strapless low back design is softened by a high scoop neck illusion bodice and full coverage illusion back to create a modest but dramatic silhouette. Beading creates a collar at the neckline in front, accents the upper back, and then creates an openwork strand of jewels effect down the back. The jersey skirt hugs the hips in a modified mermaid silhouette and ends with a slinky sweep train.

Available in: Champagne, Red (both shown) and Cobalt

 11. Beaded Spine Jersey Sweep: Style #71745

The unique bead and sequin back detail makes this fit and flare jersey sheath one of a kind. The V-neck is embellished with beading and sequins down the front bodice and along the straps. Lines of beading cascade down the back, the hip hugging skirt features a sexy thigh-high split, and the gown finishes with a modest sweep train.

Available in: Black, Royal (both shown) and Red
