I looked all over the world, literally, to find the perfect dress. After months of searching, a friend brought me to the English Department, an awesome shop in my own city of Portland, OR. I wasn’t looking for a strapless lace style like this, I wanted something very simple and modern. This dress instantly changed my mind and I knew it was the dress for me. It’s so timeless and flattering and was also so comfortable! So many dresses that I looked at had cheap looking lace, but the lace on this gown is exquisite, soft and luxurious. Nicole Miller is a wizard! The dress is perfectly flattering for a small to medium chest woman and nicely shows off the derriere and waist. I chose to wear it with a coordinating belt (included) that my tailor created for me, which accentuates the waist. She also added in some bra cups so that I could wear it without a bra and without worry of a nip slip or embarrassing moment. She also added a 3 point bustle in the back for a gorgeous draped effect. I wore it full length for my outdoor summer wedding ceremony and parade to the reception and then bustled it for the reception and dancing. Luckily I’m 5’10” without shoes, so there is plenty of train remaining to work with for anyone my height or shorter. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and easy this dress was to wear! I got a million compliments!
The dress was worn outside for one day for my wedding. Due to the grass, the very bottom hem of the dress received some wear. My dry cleaner removed all stains and discoloration, but there is a very slight fuzzy texture to the lace at the bottom edge. I’m happy to send detail pics upon request. The wear is only visible upon very close inspection.
Description: Strapless gown with elegant vintage inspired details. The lace is “Venice Floral Lace” and is very elegant and looks and feels decadent. It features a sweet heart neckline, fitted bodice and a lace detail at mid thigh for a figure flattering fit and flare effect. The bottom is a circle of lace that drapes delicatley in the front and creates a rounded train in back. The dress has been tailored to have a 3-point bustle for a nice draped back effect. The added belt creates additional definition around the waistline.
I’m also happy to provide more accurate measurements of the actual dress if needed! I’m 5’10, 145lb, 34B chest, size 6/29 pant, size 6/M dress
