The gown was purchased from The Bridal Atelier in Melbourne for RRP AU$3450. I also paid an AU$400 rush fee because I ordered it only 3 months before my wedding day which was in March 2017. I was complimented on how this dress moulded to my body, despite having no alterations made. The material is very forgiving and is so comfortable to wear. My measurements: Bust: 86cm Under Bust: 73cm Waist: 72cm Upper Hip: 86cm Lower Hip: 96cm Size 8 Rue De Seine: Bust: 85cm Under Bust: 71cm Waist: 65cm Upper Hip: 82cm Lower Hip: 94cm
The dress was professionally hemmed to fit my height of 170cm. The single button, to fasten the train, was also moved to suit my height and sits on the underside of the overlay to form a ‘French’ bustle. No other alterations were made. The dress has been professionally dry cleaned. There are still faint marks on the very bottom of the underlay so this dress would ideally suit sometime who is 169cm or shorter so it could be re-hemmed.
