Dinner - My sleeveless tops are nicer than my reg tops

Seriously. Most of my sleeveless tanks are quite dressy looking and frankly would look nicer at dinner. Are they really that picky? Because everything else is pretty much a TShirt. That's fine, I'm a rule follower, but I'd look better for dinner in the dressy tanks.

This sounds a lot like our summer interns "but these sandals were $150 at Nordstrom"

Too bad - they are still against dress code...

As many will tell you, DCL does not enforce the dress code in the MDRs. So you can make your own decision.

I have very dressy sleeveless tops that aren't tank tops (think beading $50/$75 shirts, I sometimes wear them to work in a professional office setting) that are perfectly fine for dinner. I pair them with black pants and am all set. I also bring one really light little cardigan just in case I get cold since sometimes it's a little chilly after being in the sun all day.

I am wearing one right now at work (i do put a light sweater over it) and i am planning on wearing it in the MDR with the sweater (i tend to get cold after dinner no clue why) There is a difference between a dressy sleeveless top and a spaghetti strap tank top or a wife beater type one that mean wear those are most def. not allowed(or aren't supposed to be allowed).

I completely agree with the above.

I'll have a suitcase filled with dressy sleeveless shirts for my upcoming cruise.

Don't sweat it.

Now you know everyone responding is taking for granted that dskib is a girl. Is your responses the same if dskib is a boy telling you "HIS" tank tops are dressy?

This didn't even occur to me last summer when I started buying stuff for our intended (and now happening) cruise this summer. (I'm not one that has to have the latest fashions, so I bought a dress or two each month to stock up.) And pretty much every dress I bought is sleeveless. Hmmm...

I have never seen a "dressy" tank top for a guy. I think the equivalent is a short sleeve dress shirt. One of those double standard things, don't think many people would enjoy a guy's exposed arm pits across the table at dinner.

Don't know I've ever seen a dressy men's tank. Just sayin'.

You're not supposed to wear sleeveless/strapless in the MDRs??? That's news to me but then I haven't read all the guidelines, suggestions, rules, whatever. I wear sundresses & maxi dresses that are all free of sleeves or straps. They look nice. It's not a swimsuit cover. It's not a tshirt. Looks nice, definitely "cruise casual" to me. Didn't even realize real world standards might not apply on the Disney ships.

Thanks for the laugh, You made me think of Richard Simmons.
He has some pretty fancy tanks. LOL
I am a woman who personally doesn't care for the sleeveless dress tops.
That being said it seems almost impossible sometimes to find some that aren't, they are very popular.

I would call a sleeveless shirt that is dressy a sleeveless shell. Those are fine for a nice dinner.

I was thinking the same because I have many maxi style dresses with tank tops or even spaghetti straps, but they are perfect "cruise casual." ..... I am one of these that kind of wishes dress codes were enforced a bit and I think these dressy sleeveless tops/dresses will be perfect.

But a wife beater.... ummmm no! ha!

You will be fine.

Honestly the Disney dress code is more of a 'suggestion' then an 'enforcement' This just allows them to say "UH NO" when you show up in a swim suit top
