  • THE STORY

    Talk about last minute- I bought this dress on July 25th 2014 for my September 13th 2014 wedding. The dress is a size 6, I’m 5’8″, 140lbs. I needed a dress at the last minute due to a custom-made dress disaster that is neither here nor there:) Long story short, this JCrew dress is absolutely perfect. The lace is cotton and incredibly soft- not scratchy at all. My mom even kept saying how ‘huggable’ I was in the dress. Wedding day 9/13/14: I put it on at 1pm and didn’t take it off until almost midnight and I was comfortable the entire time. You can sit, eat, dance, drop it low, hug, easily walk around to mingle, and pretty much do anything in this dress. I’m a little sad to part with it, but I really feel that a great dress from a wonderful wedding can be shared, also the money will certainly be nice to have post-wedding :) Bottom line: On my wedding day I felt tall, classic, and timeless in this figure flattering gown, I’m positive you will as well!

  • ALTERATIONS

    The only alterations needed were to the hem to shorten it up a bit. I had 2.5 inches taken off the front and tapered to only 1.5" off the sides. The back half of the dress hem tapers off to zero for the train. No length was removed from the train at all. As I mentioned I'm 5'8", 140 lbs. and wore 2 inch heels and the length and fit was perfect. A single light blue ribbon bustle was also added for the train for the reception. The bustle style would either be classified as a French Bustle or a One Point Under Bustle.

  • PRESERVATION

    I'm happy to report that not one person (myself included) spilled on the dress! The dress was cleaned and restored to its original beauty within three days after the wedding to remove the usual dust/dirt that comes with a long dress touching the floor at a reception. Other info: The ceremony and reception were both indoors. We stayed indoors for pictures as well. The only time the dress was outside was during the car ride to the hotel that night. The dress is currently being stored in the acid-free tissue paper and preservation box that comes with all JCrew dresses, in a smoke-free home. The dress was never exposed to any type of cigarette or cigar smoke during the wedding day. The dress also comes with a JCrew long white garment bag, and padded ivory satin hanger for easy dress transport the day of the wedding.
