    The Story:
    After trying on literally 100 dresses, crying, co-matrons insulted at stores; body image issues with their mirrors; I finally found IT. Attended a trunk show for the same designer, however this was not a featured gown. Combed thru their racks and there it was.

    This dress, with A-line cut, A-symmetrical ruching (flat, not poofy nor added volume to me) was extremely figure flattering in all the right places. Flattened my tummy, without the need for spanx or other undergarments other than panties; flattened my butt (and who doesn’t want that); made my waste look TINY, and could have been even smaller if the co-matrons pulled the corset tighter.

    Worn only once for Wedding Ceremony as well as Reception (Sunday brunch wedding); professionally cleaned ($195) by company used by the Bridal Salon where purchased; boxed and ready to ship.
