  • THE STORY

    The dress is a custom two piece Monique Lhuillier design. The top is a hand appliquéd ivory strapless lacquered & re-embroidered lace “Augustine corset” with built in strapless support and the dutchess satin orchidea asymmetrical draped trumpet style ivory “Magical” skirt that is form fitting and can be worn over or under the corset.

    The Monique Lhuillier Augustine corset top and Magical skirt is a romantic, sexy, and an elegantly understated dress. It is two separate pieces consisting of a corset top and skirt. The ivory Augustine corset top consists of hand appliquéd lace with a semi-sweetheart neckline. The delicacy of the lace topped with the boned bodice adds extra support is a flattering combination that is both comfortable and easy to move in. I never had to pull my top up which I was worried about when I first thought about wearing a strapless dress/top. The top can also be altered by adding cap sleeves (if you are in a more formal ceremony/church). You can also add a belt to make it special too. I preferred to keep it simple and liked the look of the ivory top piece (see picture three to get a close up of the top of the skirt).

    The flowing Magical satin skirt in ivory color. The skirt goes up to your natural waist with asymmetrical pattern that gathers at the hip. There is a distinct feature on this skirt, unlike the others you may see online, this one has a unique tulle underlay that can peek through depending on how you alter the skirt. When the dress is bustled it maintains the same asymmetrical pattern. The bustle is super simple to do (took my MOH two seconds to connect). I loved the drama that it gave me as I walked down the isle and the ease of dancing as it stayed bustled for the reception. I didn’t have to worry about anyone stepping on my dress when it was bustled.

    The dress is in pristine condition. My wedding was in May and the dress was professionally cleaned & pressed right after the wedding. I haven’t touched the dress since it was cleaned…although I totally wish I could put it on a few more times because I loved it so much! BUT, my mom would not allow me to since we got it professionally cleaned and pressed! :)

    While my dress is hard to part with, I love the idea that another bride will get to enjoy the dress on her special day!

  • ALTERATIONS

    Alterations were made to the top by bringing it in from the back (by the zipper) BUT my seamstress was amazing and kept the rest of the fabric inside the alteration/top so that anyone can let it out if they need to! There were no alterations made to the bottom of the skirt. I only took the waste in so that I would not fall down on me. Here are my measurements: Height: 5'6.5-5'7 Bra: 34D Bust: 34 Waist: 27 Lo Hip: 35.5 Round the waste size: 2/4

  • PRESERVATION

    Professionally cleaned and pressed. Ever since it was cleaned (which was right after the wedding) it has been hanging in a wedding dress bag and has stuffing in it to hold it's shape.
