I wore this beautiful Aire Barcelona dress to my wedding in August last year. I am selling it as I don't want to just keep in it a box and would love another bride to be able to wear it!
The dress is floor length, fully lined from the waistband down with two layers of silky nude material, then two layers of lace on top (you can't really see the inner layer of lace but it gives a better finish to the dress). You can see the nude layer in one of the photos. The top of the dress has a couple of layers of tulle/lace around the chest so it's not see through.
The lace is a modern geometric style which is quite unusual compared to the typical floral lace. There is a beaded waistband and small ivory beads along the front and back V neckline. The back has slightly sticky material along the line of the V so that the straps stay in place and don't roll over. The bottom of the dress (including along the train) is finished off with eyelash lace. The train is chapel length. There is one button to hold the train up for the evening although I also needed to use a safety pin to hold the very bottom of the train.
It's slim fitting but there is a small amount of stretch in the fabric so it doesn't feel tight (we did salsa for the first dance and it was easy to dance in!). Compared to almost all the other dresses I tried on, it is very light and was comfortable to wear all day. I am 5'9'' and wore 3'' heels.
I am also happy to sell the veil for an additional £50. It is chapel length (85''), ivory, very simple with no embellishment. It is sewn onto a 8cm gold comb, although the tulle is covers the comb so you can't see the colour once it's in your hair. It's made of Soft English Tulle and was extremely light and floaty. Bought for £100.
I bought this dress from a boutique in Barcelona and paid €1800 plus €160 for alterations. I got married in England so the dress is there. I have set the price at €1100 so £950 in pounds.
I haven't yet got the dress dry cleaned (I was planning on sorting it out over Easter but couldn't get back home) so if you are interested, we can discuss whether you'd like me to get it dry cleaned first, or if we could negotiate the price and you get it cleaned.
There are no majors stains at all and it was a sunny day so the bottom of the dress stayed pretty clean. There are some very slight snags to the lace at the bottom of the dress, they are not noticeable one it's on and if you need the dress shortened that would get rid of them. A few of the beads are missing near the shoulder but that would be easy to fix.
Please get in touch if you're serious and I can send you more photos.
I had the dress altered to fit me so it's slightly different than the model photos of the Gaura dress that you'll find online. The back is more open on my dress and there is less of a gap between the waistband and the bottom V of the back of the dress. I also had the bra cups taken out as I don't like the shape of pads, but there is definitely room to put some pads in (I am a 34C but it wasn't super fitted to my chest). The extra fabric was removed so it couldn't be made bigger, but it's an easy dress to make smaller as it's a simple cut, the side can be taken in and can also be shortened of course.
