STUNNING. Full of volume and texture. Romantic and soft. The alencon lace bodice and sweetheart neckline offer a trim of scalloped lace all the way around to the back. The chapel train skirt is heavily layered and detailed with gorgeous soft organza. Perfect for many venues including formal receptions to rustic venues. It is very versatile depending on how you accessorize. I chose to wear a drop back necklace to accentuate the lowered back line (not included, but I will give you all the contact information so you can purchase the exact same one after the dress purchase is made, if you wish). I also chose a crystal belt to accent my waist (same offer as necklace). The dress has the option to be bustled, which is pictured above in the dancing image. The bustle will need to be re-bustled because the thread on the two loops popped. The buttons are still attached securely though. And I left the threads under the train for reference points as to where to add the new loops. Simple fix. The dress is DIRTY on the bottom (normal loose dirt) and some in the bodice as normal wear and tear. It just needs to be dry cleaned. Dry cleaning will be done for you if the final sale price equals $3,400 or more. Please note the shipping time will take longer (if you bid enough for cleaning to take place) since I will get the dress dry cleaned only after the bidding is over. I will take the dress to the cleaners the very next business day that payment was made. I am very open to any picture you would like of it. I will not hide or withdraw any information. There are no tears or stains other than the dirt at the bottom and the two threads for loops. The dress does have cups sewn on the outside of the liner so they can be easily removed if they are not desired. They are B cups, sewn on with minimal thread at the tops only. The original dress size is 10, but I had it altered to a street size of 4 or 5. I am 5’5″ and wore 5″ heels and the dress was still long, so there is plenty of length for most. My bust is 36B. I couldn’t be more honest about this being the best purchase and decision for the wedding. I felt like a bride, like a beautiful bride and got so many compliments on the dress. The only reason I have to sell is because I got pregnant one month after my wedding (10/13/13) and would like to use the money to purchase baby items now! Thank you for your interest and please, please do not hesitate to ask any questions. :) Oh, and one more thing! I bought this dress while I was being filmed for “Say Yes to the Dress” at Bridals by Lori (my episode did not air). Also, I have a picture of the price tag on the dress with the original size, etc. I still have all the tags, the bag, the original shipment box, and the original receipt! I will only accept payment via the secured PayPal, no exceptions! Please. please be aware of duplicate LZ3213 dresses being sold, they look very similar but are indeed Chinese wholesale dresses. I am offering all original paperwork to confirm the dress’ authenticity. Also, please be aware the original price of this dress (as seen on the price tag) was $6490 (before tax)…there are people saying the original price was much higher to make it look like your percentage off is so much more than what it really is! Also please know, as of 3/6/14 the price has been reduced, and I will not be reducing it again. I also just found a button is missing from the back where it zips, but it does come with the 2 extra sewn on for the potential bustle and those buttons are very common and inexpensive. Very easy fix since the buttons are for aesthetics and the zipper does all the work.
- Alterations: Hemmed for 5'10" including heels. It was still a tad long. B cups are lightly sewn to outside of liner for easy removal. Bustle will need to be re-done with stronger thread. The dress' original size was a 10 (street size 6) I had it altered to a street size 4/5. My waist was 25.5" and hip measurements are not applicable with this style of dress.
- Preservation Method: We can negotiate whether I will have the dress dry cleaned or the buyer (final price must be over $3400). The dry cleaners here in Charleston, SC are about $400 to have the dress cleaned. I would want payment before I take the dress to the cleaners (in writing and signed by me).
