  • THE STORY

    Lillian West strapless trumpet, style 6316, was purchased from La Bella Donna (Jenkintown, PA) in July 2015 for a late October 2015 wedding.

    The gown is a satin trumpet gown with strapless bateau neckline. It is accented with an intricate beaded belt at the waist and crystal and satin buttons running down the back of the dress. The gown features a deep V-back and a detachable box pleated chapel-length train with crystal and satin buttons running down the center of the train.

    I was an older (>60) but youthful, first-time bride so I wanted the whole deal! I wanted a dress that was elegant, sophisticated, would show off my figure, and was easy to wear since I intended to dance (and eat!) at our wedding. I used the train for the wedding ceremony and then removed for the reception. This was my dream dress for my dream wedding, and I hope someone else will enjoy wearing it as much as I did.

  • ALTERATIONS

    I wanted the dress to be comfortable, so I could enjoy the wedding and not have to fuss. To accomplish this I did two significant alterations: 1) Added a French bustle to the dress only, not the train which was left the way I purchased it. The French bustle is much less cumbersome but allows you to walk and sit easily. The crystal and satin buttons are perfectly aligned from the dress on down to the bustle. 2) Had C-cups sewn into the bodice, so I could go braless! No bra straps to worry about hiding. Since I'm 5.5" and wore 3.5" heels I had the dress hemmed (again, not the train), and I had the side seams around the butt let about a total of 1/2 inch to make it easy to sit.

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress was worn for about 5 hours and the train for one hour. There are no stains, and it is clean. It is hanging in a walk-in closet all by itself and not crunched in the dress bag or box. I certainly can clean/preserve, but I figured if you are going to alter it you might want to clean and steam/press the dress after the alterations. It is something we can discuss if you are interested.
