This dress is wonderful, airy, light and elegant. The dress is in two parts, first the underlay is a satin nude slip with a zipper and second the overlay is beautiful intricate lace that is extremely light and comfortable. Lastly, I added satin covered buttons along the lower back half as an added feature but there is a zipper underneath so no need to worry about buttoning them!
The dress currently has clasps for a French bustle (marked with little white bows on the inside of the lace overlay and marked with little blue bows in the nude underlay). These clasps/bows can be removed if you prefer a different bustle so as not to cause confusion when bustling the dress on your big day!
I loved the way the dress fit, photographed and felt all day long and hope someone is able to take advantage of the same. I wanted a dress I didn’t have to worry about pulling up/fixing/dragging around all night and it was everything I hoped for!
I'd love to find it a new home for someone else to enjoy it as much as I did.
I am happy to throw in the headpiece I wore for $50.00 (Twigs and Honey - originally $190.00) if you are interested. It ties with a gold string and stayed in my hair all night with a bobby pin or two!
The first 3 pictures are models in the dress and the rest are from my wedding day.
It’s also good to note that all I wore underneath were normal underwear! The dress has cups sewn in (cup size D) but they also can easily be clipped out and swapped out for a different size.
If you have any further questions on anything, feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to answer them. Happy wedding dress shopping :)
