After falling in love with the Watters line I sought out only their dresses and eventually fell in love with the Devenport. As you can see from the pictures the dress has beautiful lace details on the bodice, accenting a sweetheart neckline, flowing down into a lovely A-line. What you can’t see is that this dress is well-built on the inside. I am larger on top (DD) and comfortably wore this dress without any spanx or bra, always feeling well supported. I loved wearing this dress on my special day and hopefully you will too.
- Alterations: I bought this dress at a label size 12. I did have alterations done prior to my wedding bringing it down to roughly a street size 8. I also had the dress shortened to skim the floor. I am 5' 3" tall and wore approx. 3" kitten heels on the big day. Lastly, I had a higher end dress zipper put in (the original zipper is larger and visible) and added lace-covered buttons along the back. Please be aware these are not cheap upgrades to the dress and are not taken into account of the original price of the dress. With these changes I would admit that this dress would likely be best for someone my height or shorter, and perhaps a little smaller. It was my experience that it is better to have a larger dress and alter the bodice to fit you like a glove. Additionally, there are some minor stains on the train of this dress. While they may come out with cleaning, a shorter bride would be able to just have that fabric removed.
- Preservation Method: This dress has not been cleaned and is stored hanging in a bag, climate controlled. There are no food stains (someone kept taking the red wine away from me!) on the dress and some minor dirt stains on the very edge of the train. As mentioned, a bride who is able to alter even 1" off this dress would likely have no stains to worry about. I can provide more pictures for serious buyers.
