This dress has a short train and does bustle up for easier dancing, but I never found it to be in the way when it was lengthened. The top is beaded. The corset back makes it much easier to fit a variety of body types. I'm 5'8, about 125 pounds. I'm happy to include the matching veil and handbag.
Dress was altered - slightly taken in around the hips. I chose to not have it dry cleaned because I figure this is up to the buyer, and I have priced the dress low to reflect this. If it were me, I would want to have the dress dry cleaned myself so that I knew it actually happened rather than taking the word of someone claiming it was cleaned. There are a few minor dirt marks on the bottom and some makeup on the inside of the bodice - none of which are visible on the outside.
