Beautiful Destinations wedding gown by Maggie Sottero. Bought through Doreen Leaf Designs in Hartville, Ohio on the last day the dress was being made and sold before being discontinued. I was told that I received the very last dress made of this style by Maggie Sottero. It came with a certificate of authenticity. I got married in this dress on June 16, 2012 at my childhood church. The dress was worn at the reception, as well, with no stains or damages acquired. Size 4 dress comfortably fit my 34C bust with push-up bra.

Dress description: Maggie Sottero Destinations wedding gown SD5230 is a one-piece, slim line wedding gown with corset back closure. Chiffon is gathered throughout this slim line gown, and it features a ruched Vogue Satin band at the empire waist as well as a sweetheart neckline. An innovative detachable shoulder strap is embellished with a floral accent. This style finishes with a soft illusion train. Hollow to Hem: 59″.
- Alterations: The size 4 dress was NOT altered for size or length. The only alterations: The original ruched white satin band at the empire waist was removed and reserved. A ruched black satin band was professionally sewn on at the empire waist with a black satin bow and long train sash that snaps in the back across the corset. (Original ruched white satin band will also be included with dress). Bustling hooks were professionally added to the back of the gown to pin up the train during the reception. Note: I wore a rhinestone and faux-pearl silver brooch that was pinned in the center of the floral accent at the base of the shoulder strap. (Removed but available if interested)
