Clean, feminine lines, flattering/slimming column silhouette, silk organza tiers…this dress is so pretty.
It’s in very good condition, worn once for my wedding in July, professionally cleaned and cared for.
I’m very picky and I went to about 15 different bridal shops and tried on dozens of dresses before I found “the one” at Amy Kuschel in San Francisco. The Juniper stood out to me because it had clean lines and was simple and elegant. I hadn’t picked a venue yet but I could imagine it working anywhere from the beach to a farm to a vintage ballroom. Amy Kuschel describes it as “preppy” but I think it’s got a vintage 1930s feel–it reminds me of a dress you’d find on BHLDN.
Most importantly, though, the fit of this dress was exceptional; it was far and away the most flattering one I tried on–I knew instantly that I had to get it.
The detail on the torso draping is amazing. It made my bust and waist look natural (but better), and the column silhouette is extremely slimming.
The dress is a perfect combination of delicate/flowing fabric and structure–it enhances/creates an hourglass shape without appearing at all heavy or stiff. It has a small, subtle train, which can be bustled after the ceremony.
The color is described by Amy Kuschel as “candle”; it’s basically a soft, warm ivory shade. The dress comes with the original, champagne-colored silk double ribbon sash shown in Amy Kuschel photo (I wore a handmade lace sash which I am keeping; it was not sewn onto the dress).
The dress has gentle boning so it stays up on top without appearing stiff.
It has a bit of wiggle room in the bust, so could possibly fit up to a 36D (I am a 36C). The hips and waist are fairly fitted but could probably go up about ¾-1 inch without compromising the silhouette. And of course, it would be easy to take it in if you’re smaller.
I’m happy to include the 36C nude bustier from Amy Kuschel (their tailor sewed cups into the bustier to help fill it out)–though I think the dress could be worn without a bustier/bra.
