Estelle

Label Size: 8 Street Size: 4

This is a 2014, BEAUTIFUL two piece corset/skirt dress by Monique Lhuillier.

•Estelle Corset – Silk white embellished strapless corset
•Estelle Skirt – Silk white faille trumpet with ruffled embroidered train skirt

The corset has a very unique, intricately beaded sweetheart neckline. It hugs your curves perfectly! The skirt is a faille silk trumpet shape, with a ruffled train. Absolutely beautiful, simple, and chic. It’s high waist covers the corset, to give it a complete, curve-hugging silhouette.

  • Alterations: The corset is a size 4, altered down slightly. My measurements are: Bust 34", Waist 27". I added a 1/2" border of tulle to the top of the corset just to give it a little extra something. This can be easily removed if you don't like it. The skirt was originally a size 8, sized down to about a 6. The waist was taken in to 27", hips to 36". I didn't like the extreme "poof" of the back of the dress, so I had some of the tulle removed. This will be kept with the dress and can be added back in if desired. Some of the tulle had beautiful embroidery and beadwork on it, like the corset, so I had a custom belt made with the extra material. I think this belt really helps tie in the corset and skirt perfectly! I had the belt tacked to the skirt, but then removed it when I dry-cleaned the skirt. There are no marks from the tacks. The skirt was hemmed a few inches. The original hem is in tact if you need it longer or shorter. The skirt has bustle ties sewn in. The custom belt is included with the dress. It is 28" long at the clasps, total 29". It can be slightly adjusted if needed. It is AMAZING, and adds a perfect touch to the waist.
  • Preservation Method: I had the skirt dry cleaned immediately after the wedding. There are tiny marks on the skirt, but only noticeable if thoroughly searched up close. The corset was not dry cleaned, for fear of ruining it, but is in perfect condition.
