Default Too short?

How short is short? I love my Frederick's of Hollywood dresses, some are short but I am totally covered, some have very deep necklines too, is this ok for the cruise or is it too sexy?

I've seen all kinds of dresses in the dining room. I'm sure those are nice. As long as the parts are covered, you should be fine. Just a hint.. sometimes the dining room is freezing. So take a wrap with you. You might need it.

Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

Default Thanks for your reply

I love dressing sexy when I am on vacation, about the only time I can. Have to be more conservative at home with work and friends, so I look forward to the times I can feel sexy and have fun. Thank you for your input too about the dining room, I appreciate it.
My husband and I will be on the Imagination on 8/21/2008.

Dress to please yourself and your mate.

Cruised more times than I can remember.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

as long as you are covered and nothing is exposed, and you have the confidence and the shape to wear it go for it

If you've got an amazing body, go for it - otherwise, be prepared for a lot of snickers.

By the way, guys, these were photos of the dresses NOT the lady who
posted the question. I am sure you will look great - and as long as you
and your DH are ok with your choices - it's immaterial what others may
think (I am POSTIVE the men on the your cruise will LOVE your choices).

It depends what kind of body you have; if you weigh 300lbs, leave it at home. On the other hand, if you look like a model, then go for it! What is the worst that can happen? You won't get asked to leave, unless you are showing strategic body parts, which, from the sound of your post, wouldn't be the case.
