This dress is two pieces. The first layer is like wearing a long slip. The top layer is beadwork embroidered. NOT a heavy dress and very comfortable.
This dress was professionally cleaned and boxed.
It is a true size 12 (size 8) from the rack. It was only altered lengthwise and buttons added for the bustle. I am 5'3" and I wore approx. 2.5 inch heels and it was still floor length. The bustle was done with several buttons to keep the look of the bottom of the dress.
I have extra beads that came with the dress and the original dress bag for it also.
I also have the bustier that i wore with this dress available for sale. Only worn for the wedding and also cleaned. It is a 36C and is low back which is needed for this dress.
