Stunning, ethereal, dreamy, and elegant dress! This dress was perfect for my beach wedding. I bought this barely ever touched sample for the hefty price of $7,900- I believe the price for this model dress as a non-sample was actually $8,900.
It is in excellent condition as I’ve only worn it for the few hours of my wedding day, which was pretty tame. It is a Liz Martinez dress which means it is so so flattering for a woman’s figure. The hand-stitched lace and beading are so beautiful.
The plunging neckline was classy and I felt secure because of the mesh in between the bust. I didn’t feel the need to add cups based on my busy size and the way it fit so I just wore nude color panties underneath. That being said, it is more customizable for you in that you don’t need to take anything out and in case you do want to add appropriately sized cups, it would be an easy alteration.
There is no bustle, which I think would have helped to have, especially because the dress still felt a little long for me in my 2-inch heels. But again, this would be a customizable option for you to add if you felt it was necessary and at least you don’t have to undo and redo anything.
The back is very open, as it was held up by just two very thin straps attaching to the waist. Also, it is somewhat sheer and I didn’t add any additional lining, as I actually loved the look of being able to see the silhouette of my legs in the sunlight which you can see in one of my pics! Once again though, that would be a super easy customizable add-on if you felt it was necessary.
I really kept any and all changes and alterations to a minimum, knowing that this was my only huge splurge item for the whole wedding and that I was intending to resell.
This is the most elegant yet effortless dress, allowing me to feel delicate, soft and pretty, while also being sexy yet classy. It was comfortable and flowy so I didn’t have to worry about not being able to eat or drink. This dress truly hit all the marks. You really can’t go wrong!
Alterations: Extremely minimal alterations. It was basically only taken in a little bit and the length was shortened from its original form. The seamstress also added some hook and eyelets in the back as opposed to sewing together the lace under the zipper.
