The Dress

Vivienne Westwood cocotte with bespoke neck line to add more draping’s around the bust and arms. The dress is a Vivienne Westwood standard size UK 10, it fits tightly around the waist and bust due to the boned internal corset. I was afraid that the corset would be uncomfortable as it was quite tight on me but it was so comfortable to wear even on a hot summer day in Tuscany, Italy. Vivienne Westwood sure knows how to make corsets! I assume that it’s because of the elastic material that is included in the corset and the fact that the corset stop just before the waist, which actually gives you the option to sit down and breathe without it being tight. It was just perfect! The gown is heavy silk and drapes beautifully across the bust and waist. The draping on the lower part of the belly is placed perfectly. I tend to get bloated during the day but because of those drapes it wasn’t visible at all. It is extremely flattering and surprisingly comfortable to wear. I didn’t even need to wear any shape wear underneath. The gown is long. Size UK 10 / ivory Condition The gown is in almost perfect condition as it is worn for only 6 hours during my wedding day (I wore a different dress in the evening) There are a few smaller marks on the inside of the gown on the bottom 3 inches of the train. They are not visible at all from the outside both when worn nor on a hanger. All the marks on the inside has more or less the same color as the fabric so you really have to look close inside the dress if you want to spot them. These marks are almost inevitable to get the first few hours on a white floor-length dress. To sum up: there are no visible marks once the dress is worn. I’m using an eco-friendly dry cleaner to avoid chemicals so you might even be able to remove some of the spots/marks if your dry cleaner is more ‘effective’ than mine. Please message me if you have any questions, I’ll be happy to provide further details.

Alterations

There’s been added more drapings in the bust area. I choose to add more shape and ‘padding’ which is quite flattering on the bust (especially on a normal/small bosom like mine) if you prefer the original look your tailor is able to take out the stitches that were made for the extra draping and just give it a press/steam.
