  • THE STORY

    Ugh, I love this dress so completely and utterly. Unfortunately, my boobs (already pretty generously sized) have grown enormously since I bought it, and I just can’t rock a strapless at all for any reason. Since I’ll never wear it again, it seems better that someone else should have it and love it!

    It’s all layers and layers of light and fluffy and beautiful Chantilly lace and tulle. It’s perfect. You will love it, if this is the dress you want to love.

    Our wedding was a daytime affair in a suburb of the Chicago area, at an outdoor venue. I wore it for a few hours, took it off, and put it back in the bag. It doesn’t have any stains or spots, but I was too scared to ever get it cleaned, fearing a dry cleaner would ruin it somehow. It’s still in perfect condition, just in need of a light steaming to get the lace nice and smooth after sitting in a bag for years.

  • ALTERATIONS

    No damage, but this dress has been heavily altered. I bought a size 8 to have room for the bust, then had to have a professional seamstress entirely deconstruct it to put in more substantial undergirding for my bust than the original designers provided. It was also taken in at the waist quite a bit. This dress will be fine if you want to have it taken in and altered a lot, or if you happen to be one of those needle-in-a-haystack busty gals who wants to wear a strapless, short wedding dress. Basically, it was taken in enough to be sized for someone wearing a 30F bra with a 28" waist, and it's roomy/flowy at the hips by virtue of the style. If that sounds like you, or if you want to have your dress altered anyway, this might be the right one for you!

  • PRESERVATION

    Not cleaned, and not stained, damaged, or spilled upon in any way. Or even sweated in, frankly. It was very, very cold on our wedding day and I spent much more time covered in goosebumps than sweating at all. It's been stored hanging in a closet in a zippered garment bag.
