I absolutely loved this dress. It is an A-line gown but if you wear a fuller petticoat you can turn it into more of a ballgown. The full chapel train is beautiful for the ceremony but can be bustled up for the reception. The entire dress is covered in pearl beading, sparkling beading and lace. It shimmers and sparkles in the light. It is a sweetheart neckline. I had it hemmed to match my height on my wedding day of 5′ 5″ (I am 5′ 3″ and I wore 2″ heels). I also paid to have a 9 point bustle installed. The dress cost $600 but the alterations (hemming, neckline and bustle) cost over $350! You’ll be glad you bought this dress with the bustle already installed since that process alone was almost $250. All alterations were done at the Bridal shop and is all quality work. I will not have this dress cleaned simply because the time and money that will cost me. There is no damage to the dress – no rips, tears, missing beads or stains. There is only some dirt around the hem of the dress from dragging on the floor during photos. It is a size 4 on the tag, but I am more of a street size 6 so this dress must run a bit big. If you are slightly larger than my measurements below that is okay since this dress was never let out it still has some room to be let out, and if you are smaller than my measurements, there is always the option to take it in. In my photos I am wearing the dress with an optional red sash. This sash is NOT part of the dress, it is something I added.
So if you don’t mind getting your own dry cleaning done, this is a great way to get a quality, practically new wedding gown with all expensive alterations already done!
