Feel of the Dress: I am a passionate fashionist and it was difficult to choose from so many beautiful dresses. This dress was hard to forget once tried on because it is so ROMANTIC and I felt like a bride (not a catwalk model)! The subtle dusty pink/champagne colour (which looks absolutely gorgeous under the sun as you will see from the photos), the light-as-feather tulle and the soft-yet-subtle lace, it was the feeling I wanted for my wedding and it as.
Where and of what was the dress made: made in England by designer David Fielden. 68% Acetate, 32% Rayon; Lace: 73% Rayon, 20% Cotton, 7% Nylon; Petticoat: 100% Nylon; Lining: 100% Acetate. This information is shown on the label of the dress.
Size and Length of the Dress: My dressmaker ordered the dress from London for me. She said to get a size 8 and to fit around me. I just saw the label yesterday which was in fact an US size 6 and a UK10 which I was surprised. but at no time it felt like a size 10. I am a standard size 6 on my upper body so even the dress was taken in from its original size, it should fit anyone of size 6. Who do I think would look good in this dress? A size 6 with C cup boobs (I had paddies added in but they are easily removable) and someone who is confident with their small waist - the dress stands out! In terms of height, I am 163cm and I wore pretty high heels from Christian Louboutin - the dress's length is tailored to that but it's floor length and I felt like it was a hint longer than my getup (solidly on the floor).
Shape of the bottom of the dress: it is full as you can see. It looks full and round when you are standing. When you walk, it drags a bit with the veil over it, it's beautiful.
Fitting of the Dress: one of the reasons why I decided to spend a bit more on the dress was because that you will tell the difference on the weight of the dress very quickly. I tried on some 2k dresses in this style, 10 minutes in it almost killed my lower back. This dress however, the whole dress is light and soft as feather because of the high quality tulle. I did not get tired at all in the dress for the whole day and night. Highly recommend you watch out for this (even if you don't want my dress!) It is really comfortable. The upper body looks loose from the pictures because of the overcoat lace but it is actually very fitted - I had the lace more firmly fitted as well in alternation. Love it!
How you put it on: it zips up from the lower back with a hook on the top.
Veil: I bought matching veil that is of the same colour theme. The colour of the veil looks darker when it's not on but once you put it on it matches perfectly. It was purchased from the same dress marker and picked out by the dress maker. It is floor length veil and it drags just behind the back of the dress. I bought it for $500 at a discount. it is light and soft. the original retail price quoted includes the price for the veil and the cup paddies.
Any defects/damages: None. I thought the bottom of the dress would be disclolored but completely fine. As if brand new after dry cleaning. Note, after dry cleaning, they put it in the box, I didn't like how the tulles were all squeezed together so I took it out of the box and had it hanging so that the tulle is not creased.
Why am I selling and why not sell it in 2015: tbh, I wanted to keep it. Maybe one day I will have a room for it. But it's big and so beautiful. I cannot stand it sitting in my wardrobe and be wasted.
