I purchased this dress at a small boutique in February 2013 for my October 2013 wedding. The dress was ordered brand new and has been altered according to the details provided on the next tab. The strapless a-line satin gown features a scoop neck and corset bodice which can be laced to fit a street size 10 to 14. It is alabaster, which is a warm ivory color that plays well on many skin types. Although the dress technically has “pickups,” if not worn with a petticoat or hoop skirt, the dress appears to just have different layers that provide texture. The stunning intricate crystal belt is sewn into the dress, which hits at the perfect spot on the waist. The bodice’s figure-flattering pleating crosses over the belt in the middle for a really unique look. This dress definitely holds everything just where it should be, provides a lovely shape and does wonders for a girl’s figure. Plus, with the corset, there’s no need for uncomfortable shape wear!
It was worn once for my wedding and reception and has been preserved in the original bag in a climate-controlled area. I will have it professionally cleaned and pressed before shipping to the buyer. Minor alterations and fixes may need to be made to the bustle.
This is a beautiful gown that photographed so well. I received, and still receive, many compliments on it. The dress really transforms to the body that’s wearing it, which offers a unique wedding-day look for anyone who wears it. Whether you’re going for a classic glam or vintage throwback look, this dress is perfect.
