The Dress

The dress is in excellent condition and is fully dry cleaned.

The Rish Calandra dress is the perfect summer or beach wedding dress. It has exquisite beading details and large modern floral patterns.
The dress is very modern and light. It does not wear you down because the fabrics are lightweight but soft and comfortable.
The dress is absolutely stunning and the unique large floral patterns adds a bit of drama to the occasion. The train of the dress is not too big but can be flared out to create an effect for photos.
The deep v-neck and v-back are sexy and elegant.

The dress has some upgrades done that were necessary improvements.
1. The dress had some layers of tulle added to the front chest fabrics because the original was too see through where you visibly see any pasties or breast cups underneath. The added tulle is in a similar color to the original fabrics and blends in very well as you can see from the photos.
2. The dress has been added with a very discrete bustle. The bustle has a very small button on the back and is joined by a loop discretely sawn into the seamline of the back of the dress. The dress can be tucked up nicely after the button has been looped and this will allow for easier dancing and walking.


FYI - The label size is actually size 2 of the brand's size (based in Israel). The official measurement is 96cm Bust, 74cm Waist and 97cm Hip but this is misleading. Similar to many other brands that design clothing to fit smaller, the actual fit is about about 1 size smaller, which is the equivalent of a UK size 10 (~US size 4). I am normally between a UK size 8-10 (US size 2-4) and this dress did not need any alteration in waist or bust at all (the hip size doesn't matter because it's an A-line skirt).

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Alterations

Two minor alterations has been done to the dress due to the fact that the dress was designed for a much taller person than the average. As a reference, I am 165cm but I altered the dress with a height that includes the additional height from a pair of 4-inch heels. This means it leaves a lot of leeway if you are taller than me because you could just wear a shorter pair of heels.

1. The dress has been hemmed to the height of me with the additional height from a pair of 4-inch heels, which adds up to about 172cm in total.

2. The shoulder straps has been slightly shortened to bring the waistline up by about 1.5cm. This is because the dress was originally designed for a very tall model, who has a much longer torso than most people. However, the excess fabric from the shoulder can be put back by an experienced tailor because the fabric has been kept in whole (tucked in) and not cut off.
