This was the first dress that I tried on and I immediately knew that it was the one. It had all of the drama and flair that I was looking for and I felt amazing in it! People are still commenting about the dress and how well it fit!
I chose the dress and ordered it in December 2015. It arrived at the bridal store in May 2016 and I wore it at my July 2016 wedding.
The dress has feathers at the sweetheart neckline and the bodice hugs your body. The dramatic ball gown skirt is made of three different tulles, giving it depth and texture. It has a simple zipper closure up the back, making it quick and easy to get in and out of, which was fantastic for the restroom. (I kept a hanger in my restroom so that I was able to take the dress off and then slip back into it quickly when I was done.) A bustle has been added so that the train can be up and out of your way for dancing.
I am 5'4" and wore a 4" heel. The skirt was taken up a bit so that I wouldn't trip on it. This was done by gathering up the tulle, none of the tulle was removed. The dress also has B cups stitched in so that a bra wasn't necessary.
The dress was professionally cleaned and boxed after we returned from our honeymoon. It is stored in a spare bedroom in our smoke-free house.
