Alterations: I actually had this dress altered. Although I wear a 10 (12 maximum, even in fitted jeans), because there is absolutely no give in the bust, I had to get an 18 (in bras, I wear a 38DD). Also, I’m tall (5’10”) so we added extra length. Thus, the waist was taken in a few days before the wedding, particularly the very fitted area directly under the bust in the top of the ribcage. The dress fit me pretty well on the day of the wedding—it was slightly large in the waist, but got a pass because it fit extremely well in the bust area. This dress will fit someone tall and busty quite well. It’s an extremely flattering dress and I loved the way it looked on me. Although it was a bit large for me sizewise, it was slimming because of the flattering cut. Also, the color is a-mazing.

Description and details

Description and Details
This dress is extremely elegant and romantic. It’s not overtly sexy, but it is absolutely beautiful and makes the wearer absolutely beautiful (and I’m speaking as a member of a huge bridal party that saw this dress on many different shapes, sizes, and heights). It’s a one-shoulder draped bodice, Grecian style, which is lovely. There’s also a natural waist with a ribbon trim, which adds to the chic presentation of the gown. It’s a very sophisticated, fashion-forward design, but traditionally romantic. The price I paid for the dress was $376 with tax. I am willing to sell it for $175 at the lowest—it was a huge expense for me, but it was my best friend’s wedding!! Although it’s a gorgeous gown, I don’t plan to wear it again and would love for someone else to feel like a princess for a day in it—and, honestly, I’d love to have some of my hard-earned cash back in-hand!
