  • THE STORY

    Congrats on your engagement and good taste. This is not another strapless dress. If you are looking for a unique dress, look no further. This dress has an intriguing low back, flattering, yet modest sweetheart neckline and romantic off the shoulder lace sleeves (https://www.moniquelhuillier.com/looks/928). I bought the dress from a bridal boutique that is a recognized seller on PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com (http://www.plumedserpentbridal.com/). It was originally a sample dress in their Connecticut boutique that was rarely, if ever, tried on because I think the off the shoulder trend was way ahead of its time and the style is for a more discerning bride (http://www.people.com/article/george-clooney-amal-alamuddin-wedding-photo). I received it in mint condition (packed with tissue paper and in a protective bag) and it still is in great like-new condition. I wore it for three alteration appointments, bridal photos, during the ceremony, family photos, dinner and first dances. I’m guessing I wore it for eight hours in total.

  • ALTERATIONS

    When I bought it, it was a sample size 10. It was taken in a few inches around the waist and I'm guessing would now be considered a bridal size 8, I wear a size 4. I'm 5'4" and wore 2" heels so it was hemmed to a height of 5'6". If you are taller or just fashion forward, I think it would look great with a high low hem (http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,20419951_20871229_30248683,00.html, https://www.pinterest.com/swshow/gownsthe-highs-and-lows-of-it/). The woman that did the alterations gets rave reviews on Yelp (http://www.yelp.com/biz/si-arima-santa-clara). The bust was unaltered. I'm a 34B and I added padded adhesive cups due to the low back, so if you are more endowed than me it could still work for you.

  • PRESERVATION

    I had it dry cleaned (steamed basically) before the wedding to get out any wrinkles since we live in CA and traveled to TX for the wedding. Nothing was spilled on the dress during the reception. I haven't done anything since the wedding except hang it my closet in its protective bag. I'm open to dry cleaning it for its new owner, but I though I would do as little as possible in case its new owner wants to only trust it to her favorite dry cleaner.
