I managed to eventually sell my dress on this website. It did take nearly 2 years for someone to purchase it though. Otherwise great website and wished I knew about it before I bought my dress new in a store!

The Dress

Martina Liana 977 strapless wedding gown. Original value $3,599 with $610 in alterations and $500 in dry cleaning expenses. Purchased from Fairytales Bridal in Moonee Ponds. Sadly needing to sell my gown to make some money back on our wedding. Stunning gown, I couldn’t have asked for a nicer dress!

Purchased on 20/04/18 in ivory colour and in a size 14 however was altered to fit a size 8-10 as I lost weight! My measurements on the day of the wedding were:

- Bust 89cm
- Waist 72cm
- Hips 97cm
- Height 176cm

A unique mix of lace and detailing gives this strapless fit-and-flare gown from Martina Liana a vibe that is perfectly vintage! Rococo-inspired lace adorns the sweetheart bodice of this gown, creating linear lines and showcasing the sheer bodice and exposed boning on back. This linear lacework continues through the fitted bodice, before expanding into a spaced-out lace pattern that covers the flared tulle skirt.

The sheer bodice of this vintage gown around the back is accented with linear lace designs that guide the eye down the back of the bodice to the elaborate, lace-detailed train, complete with horsehair trim. The back of this vintage wedding dress zips up beneath crystal buttons.

Paired perfectly with a cathedral length veil, I chose a plain ivory tulle cathedral length veil. Being tall I chose to wear flat shoes on my wedding day as the dress didn’t require any hem adjustments if I did. If you are not as tall as I am you could pair it with heels.

The train of the gown also buttons up at the back where the skirt flows out (please see images). This allows you to button it up for the reception and avoid having a long train following you all night!

Dress has only been worn once on my wedding day and has been professionally dry cleaned by Syndal’s Bridal Dry Cleaning. I also hold a certificate for proof of dry cleaning.

Feel free to come and try it on however would appreciate no time wasters. Happy to ship dress at additional shipping costs.

The website photos of the gown show the shear bodice on both the front and back of dress however I chose to have the front portion of the sheet replaced with material so that only the back portion remained sheer. Please refer to images.


Alterations included:
- Adding three bustles to the train of dress for pinning
- Taking in the back of the dress for sizing
- Adding some darts around bust area
- Adding in bust pads
