LDS temple dresses have a few requirements that must be met for them to be appropriate for the temple. They must cover your garments without the garments being pinned or altered.
The sleeves on your temple clothing have to be long sleeves and come to your wrists. The length of the dress must come to your ankles, so maxi dresses work best. The color of your dress has to be white since that is the color worn in the temple.

A Few Things To Consider
You’ll want your temple dress to be comfortable, flattering, affordable, and easy to get on and off. Comfort is important because temple work can take a few hours and you don’t want to be uncomfortable or in a dress that’s a little too small for the duration of the sealings or endowments.
Part of being comfortable is also finding a dress that breathes well. It can be warm inside the temple and you don’t want a dress that makes you overheat.
It is nice to have a dress that is flattering so that you do not feel self-conscious while doing temple work. You do not want that to be the focus of why you’re there and sometimes being dressed in something flattering makes you feel better and ready to do what you need to get done.
These temple dresses can be expensive, so it is nice to find one that is affordable and in your budget.
It’s also important to find a dress that is easy to get on and easy to take off. You don’t always have a friend with you who can help with a zipper or button in the back of your dress and you’ll want to be able to change in and out of your dress quickly.
