CHIC - ELEGANT - SIMPLE WITH SOME BLING!!!
When I saw this dress online, I said it would be too fitted and will show my flabs etc. and won't be that flattering. When I went to the Bridal Gown shop I thought I would give it a try. Surprisingly, this dress was the most flattering dress on me. It actually made me look slimmer. My mum eyes lit when she saw me in it and said this was the one.
The dress material is quite light and comfortable. Easy to breathe etc. It looks heavy with the train but it is seriously not heavy at all. The material is quite cool and breathable and very easy to steam. I was married during Summer and it was comfortable. It is also comfortable and easy to lift to go to the toilet also. (No bridesmaid help needed)
The dress says its ivory but I think it is more on the white side. There are so many versions of whites and ivory but the colour is very chic.
My sizing was a bit unusual. My measuring size was: Size 10 Bust, Size 12/14 Waist and Size 6 in Hips. So we ordered a size 12.
Dress has cups already in it so no bra or extra cups needed.
SIDE CUT OUTS
The side cutouts is nude colour and the Swarovski-crystal embellishments is still intake and in perfect condition.
CRYSTAL BUTTONS / TRAIN
The crystal buttons is still in perfect condition. Please note, It is ONLY missing 2 buttons. (I had my dress bustled and a guest stepped on it and it yanked and came off without me knowing) If you are cutting train shorter, you can move the buttons around. Or even, if you cut the back lower you can re-use the buttons. I originally want the back to be lower but since I have a unflattering back, the alteration lady was being honest and advised me not to because it will make me look bigger so I didn't. But she said it is possible.
The dress is professionally drycleaned and in the dress zip bag. If you require a box, that will be an additional $35 for the box (quoted from my drycleaner)
I purchased the dress brand new and paid $2,100.
Ordered and sent straight from the manufacturer.
Drycleaning was $220.00 (Without the box)
Alterations was $750.
You’re welcome to offer a price.
I had to get a fair bit altered due to my size and height. When ordering the dress I was hoping to loose more weight but unfortunately my waist didn't go down in size.
Luckily the alteration lady I had was experience and managed to get about another 2 inch around my waist (to zip up my back fat) and to be comfortable. I could still zip it up without alteration but i wouldn't be able to be comfortable.
They also add extra elastic hooks to secure the buttons on the back. it is quite easy to secure. Just need a bobby pin to hook it (since most girls will have their nails done it is bit hard to do with long manicured nails)
I am a short girl, 155cm in height. They ordered the dress 3inch shorter than the original train size. I did get it shorter to suit my height but the dress still have material to let out if needed.
I was wearing 7.5cm heels so the dress just touch the floor. The alteration lady did advised that she altered it so I can let out again if i'm selling.
Bustle: They also put four loops for bustle. I think 1 or two have come off with the button.
The train is still connected to the dress. Have not cut the string. The alteration lady did this because she said if I was walking down the aisle, I may step on my actual dress and it won't look nice etc. She said if I wanted the "Train blowing" look, can just cut it to detach after ceremony but I didn't.
It also have a little loop to hang dress off wrist to walk around.
