The Demtrios 900 (aka Ilissa) is a bestselling style for a reason–it is a classic, both elegant and just a little sexy.
STYLE: Classic, feminine, elegant, romantic. You could easily wear this in any venue. We had a sort of vintage feel for our garden reception, but the ceremony was on the beach.
COLOR: The dress is white on white (diamond white), floral lace covered in crystal and clear seed beads. (This same model comes in nude/ivory or ivory/ivory, which gives it a slightly different look. I think the pure white really looks amazing with my skin–cool toned.) It is stunning on with the beads catching a little bit of light. The bustline is covered in about a half an inch wide row of tiny beads.
FIT: Very streamlined, strapless, semi-sweetheart, and trumpet/mermaid. The train is a sweep train, so it will require a bustle. The hem is scalloped lace.
Because I wanted more volume on the bottom, I wore a hoop underneath to give the dress more of the typical “mermaid” shape. I’l linclude this with the dress so you have that option at no charge.
HEIGHT/LENGTH: I am 5’6.5″, and wore 4.5″ heels and the hoop. If you are shorter, plan to wear lower heels and/or do not want to wear the hoop, you will almost inevitably need to hem the dress.
CLOSURE: The back has an inner corset and a long zipper lined with covered buttons–this is the standard for this dress, although you could have that altered if you wanted. The back has a slight V-shape.
MORE: If you have ANY questions about the dress or want to see more pictures, please let me know. I’d be happy to tell you about it!
ZERO ALTERATIONS. This dress is a pure size four. No hem, no intake, no cups added, no bustle. It’s plain and simple as you would receive it from the company.
FULL DISCLOSURE: I got a pull on the hem on the UNDERSIDE of the gown, which means it doesn’t show, but it is a minor defect.
