Simply stunning dress. Diamond White satin positively sparkles, and minimal embellishment at hip and lower back provide just the right amount of beaded decoration without overwhelming.
The ruched style of the front of the dress is incredibly slimming on any figure, and the drape and beading on the back was very flattering. I found this dress very comfortable for the entire evening.
The interior bra-lette/corset eliminates the need for pricey foundation-wear. The inner layer of the bodice has a wide, comfortable adjustable strap for support, keeping the front of the dress smooth and secure. This allows for a prefect customized fit without costly adjustment or alterations. Zipper closure in back - no fussy ribbons or buttons for easy dressing (the crinolines are a different story - you will need a second pair of hands to help with the skirt) The only alteration to this dress was the hem and beautiful french bustle straps. (Many bridal shops charge $250+ for the bustling) The train of the dress tucks beautifully beneath to allow for comfort during the reception.
Bride's height is 5ft 3. Dress was hemmed to my 3 heels. (**Decorative beading is on a lace medallion which can be removed. I have seen some bride do this, and the effect is lovely too)
Dress was professionally preservation cleaned and has been stored untouched.
