I searched for a wedding dress for 3 months and kept coming back to this Christos gown over and over again. The first time I saw it, I immediately fell in love with it and couldn't get it out of my mind. I had my heart set on buying a used gown - mostly from an economical standpoint, but this one stole my heart so I decided to buy it retail. I'm looking to sell my gown so that someone else can enjoy it's beauty (rather than sit in a closet for years and years).
It is lightweight, beaded chantilly lace with white crystal shimmer. It has an ethereal quality, but the bodice has some boning so it has structure. It has a sweetheart neckline with lace overlay, allowing for more coverage and support. Fitted through the hips, with a slight sheath-like drop at the bottom. You can add horsehair/crinoline if you're looking for a more dramatic flair. Overall, a stunning dress. Very flattering and comfortable.
Professionally cleaned immediately after. Condition is pristine, looks like it was never worn.
Altered the length. I'm 5'4 and wore 2.5" shoes. Also slightly shortened straps. No alterations made to the body of the dress.
