Purchased this dress off the rack from Bisou Bridal in Vancouver, BC, Canada (new price was $4300 CAD). Gorgeous ivory lace dress with champagne underlay with satin ribbon belt worn at our garden wedding for 8 hours. It is incredibly light for a wedding dress and I had a ton of compliments on how gorgeous it was!

  • Alterations: Dress was altered to shape my body (approximately size 4). Waist is quite small in relation to hips - 25 inches, hips 34 inches, Bust about 34 B. Dress is hemmed to 5'6". Cups were added to the bust but can easily be taken off. Bustle ties added (underlay bustles with a french type 3-point bustle, and then the lace hooks onto one of the buttons for a one point overbustle). The dress is in fairly good shape - though there are a couple of very small tears in the delicate mesh (these are very easily fixed during alterations by moving around the hand sewn lace as was done for me for a couple that were on it when I bought it. I also have extra lace the seamstress kept for me that can be used for this). The tears are very hard to notice unless you look closely. The sash has a couple of minor scratches and marks. The price is highly discounted to reflect this condition.
  • Preservation Method: Dress was professionally dry cleaned a few months after the wedding and is being stored in a breathable cloth bag (I was told not to get it boxed if I was planning to sell it).
