I never thought I’d be married in a big dress, but this is a gorgeous gown. It is slim on top with detailed flower lace that is subtle, but lovely. The bottom flows out and bustles up nicely. From 6 until past midnight, I had no problem dancing the night away and still looked great the whole night. The entire wedding was inside, we just took a few pictures outside, so there are no stains. The top has a corset and built-in boning that makes the dress very flattering (even for someone like me with no waist!!)
- Alterations: It was a size 10 and taken in quite a bit. The current measurements are bust: 33, waist: 28, hips: 38 1/4, length: 57. I am 5'2 and wore 3" heels. There are four inches of give on the side, so the dress can be let out if needed. It has been bustled into a french bustle style and hooks were added for the straps. The straps do not come with the original design of the gown, I had them made. Unfortunately my tailor did not do a great job with the straps and one of them broke, so they are NOT included in the price of the gown. There are also cups inserted.
- Preservation Method: I had it cleaned professionally from the store that sold it to me. It is extremely clean.
