The Dress

Honestly, this dress was perfect - really comfortable and flattering, supportive bodice, can put things in your pockets and a really gorgeous, dramatic yet modern look. The train hooks up to a small hook at the waist of the dress to 'bustle' it. After alterations, I'd say this is a smaller UK size 12 / larger UK size 10 now. Label has US 12 & UK 16 on it. Please measure for accuracy as I've remeasured myself the same week as the wedding for perfect fit. Would love for it to be worn by other brides on the special day and not just sit in a cupboard. I'm based in North London (Crouch End, N8), so this can be shipped (with full insurance at buyer's expense) or collected. This is ready to be worn at its next event!

Bust: 36 inches (92cm)
Waist: 31 inches (78cm)
Hips: 40 inches (101cm)
Bodice Height: 7.5 inches (19.5cm)
Skirt Length: 42.5 inches (108.5cm)
Waist to Train Length: 64 inches (162.5cm)

This dress cost just over £3k including the professional alterations to shorten it, add elastic to the sleeves for a more flattering fit and add the bustle hook. I had it dry cleaned straight after the wedding, and it comes on a white wooden clothes hanger inside the white dress bag. There are some small marks on the inside of the train and right at the bottom where it was touching the ground - certainly nothing visible without very close inspection or would be visible in photographs.

This is a 2022 made dress.

Crafted in beautiful heavyweight silk drill satin, Le Belle V2 features a corseted bodice that meets a box pleated full A-line skirt, while a sculptured drop shoulder adds a modern twist to a sweetheart neckline. Pockets (!!) and a high side split add a touch of casual ease and will show off your shoes.

Can add in the veil for an additional £80 (cost was £220), which is the perfect length for this dress with the train - let me know if you'd like this too. It's 2 tier, raw edge Ivory veil (85" + 30"). Happy to recommend my shoes too.

Alterations

Professionally altered by a specialist at the bridal shop - hem shortened by 12.5cm; taken in at the bodice, bustle hook added to the back so that it can be hooked up for the reception, sleeves had elastic added to sit better on the arms and a stitch added into the hem so that it doesn't reveal too much (can easily be removed).

The extra fabric from the hem was retained, so I can also provide this if wanted.
