I never planned to buy a blush pink dress, but I tried this on in the first store (even though it was out of my price range :) and it was so beautiful– the color and the shape were so flattering. I kept looking to find something less expensive, but I could not find anything that came close to matching this. I wish that I could keep wearing it all the time, but I hope that by reselling it someone else can get the beautiful dress of their dreams too.
It’s a blush pink A-line fine tulle (not the kind that looks like netting) dress with rose gold and champagne small beading and silk taffeta sash and petals.The back is a deep V, mirroring the front but a little lower. You can see the designer’s listing for the dress here: http://watters.com/Product/WattersBrides/3092B/. I found the Watters sizing and styling to be very consistent, so if you’ve tried on a Watters dress and like the look of this one, the style will probably be flattering on you (I say this because this dress wasn’t easy to find to try on).

The dress is a size 0-- I am a street size 4. I had minimal alterations. The dress measurements are 33" bust (this is completely unaltered-- this dress is usually worn without a bra, it has substantial built in lining so nothing shows through or falls out). The waist is 25" and I had it taken in half an inch. I also had the shoulder straps shortened (they come extremely long)-- I am 5'4" with a normal sized torso. I did NOT have the dress shortened-- I wore it with 4 inch heels and a hoop skirt under it to lift it off the floor, and I wanted it to drag a little. I will include two hoop skirts with purchase-- without a hoop it is a slight A-line, but unless you are very tall you would need to shorten it. With an A-line hoop, included, it is a slight A-line. With a ballgown hoop (also included) it is much wider at the bottom, but this makes it easier to dance by keeping it away from your legs. I wore the A-line hoop for pictures and the ceremony and the ball gown hoop for the party. I did have a three point bustle put in to deal with the slight train during the party (see picture). This cost $250, just to give you an idea what it would cost to buy new. Damage: One outside layer of tulle is slightly torn where my heel went through the bottom-- there are a lot of layers of tulle and this isn't really noticeable-- it could be cut off if you are shortening the bottom or the layer of tulle could be removed. There are no stains on the body of the dress. The underside of the train is dirty-- it was dragging on the floor and is white. It is only visible when lifting the dress. If you are shorter than me or wearing shorter shoes, you could just have the dirty part cut off to shorten the dress. Or it will likely come out with specialized cleaning, but no guarantees. Also, the bustle is mostly intact, but one of the strings attaching the underlayer to the bustle snapped, so the underlayer doesn't bustle correctly-- this should be a VERY cheap fix since it's not even the visible part of the dress-- if you're at all handy you can probably do it yourself. Email me for detailed pictures.
None. Because the dirt and slight tear are entirely at the bottom, I'm leaving it up to the buyer whether to shorten it or pay to have it cleaned and fixed up. If you want it pre-cleaned, I am happy to get that done, but it costs $250 which you would have to pay (I will provide receipts with the dress).
