This was my dream dress~ gently draping, exquisite lace, delicate buttons, a vintage feel with elegant, modern interpretations such as the sheer netting for the back of the gown. Purchasing the dress online from BHLDN was intimidating, to say the least, but when I put it on for the first time I knew I had made the right choice.
I received so many compliments on my dress, and was thrilled (and surprised!) at how comfortable and lightweight the dress was.
BHLDN gown description~
“With 30 years experience designing dresses, Vatana Watters draws upon the rich heritage of fashion masters like Balenciaga and Lanvin to create designs that are fresh, surprising, and beautiful. Created with the classic romantic in mind, this sleeveless gown is set apart by its hand detailing, stunning scalloped hem and train, and intricate French Alencon lace. Also called the “Queen of lace,” this ancient variety originated in Alencon, France during the 16th century. The v-neck flatters every body type while details like dainty buttons placed all the way down the illusion back make this piece one to remember.”
Bust~ 34″, Natural waist~ 25″, Hips~ 35″, Skirt back length~62″, Skirt front length~48″
I am 5’6″, 120lbs. The dress was the perfect length with 1.5″ heels.
-From WTOO by Watters
-Alencon lace, tulle; separate stretch polyester satin lining
-Can be shortened; using an experienced bridal tailor is recommended
Professional alterations: -The straps of the dress were taken in approximately 1" to accommodate my small shoulders. The straps could easily be let back down (professional alterations recommended). Professional improvements made to the gown (over $150 worth) -Each button down the back was reinforced (the one complaint in reviews for this gown was that the buttons come loose. I was determined not to be losing buttons, and this resolved that issue) -An invisible clasp was added to the underside of the skirt to attach the gown to the separate satin lining. This helped keep the gown and underskirt from twisting so that the underskirt would peep out from under the lace.
The dress was professionally cleaned by a cleaner specializing in fine gowns and bridal wear ($130 cleaning) and is in excellent condition. The dress is stored in its original fabric garment bag, and additionally will be shipped inside a plastic garment bag inside of careful packaging to protect the dress during shipping. Please note that I cannot accept returns on this item since the integrity of the dress may be diminished by shipping it to various buyers. Thank you!
