Queen Anne and Illusion Back Lace Gown
What originally sold me on this dress was how comfortable it was despite its elegance. I could not believe it. I thought when I went to first try on dresses they were all going to be so heavy and awkward. Not this one!
I got married in August which we all know is peak heat in the summer. The open-back design was a lifesaver and incredibly beautiful. I felt very snug in this dress which made getting around much easier. I never had to worry about adjusting the top of the dress thanks to the breezy straps or worry about it falling down.
There are many buttons but no one had any issues with helping me in and out of the dress, they were very easy to loop and unloop. This dress was also lightweight enough that I could use the restroom by myself and had no issue holding the dress up on my own, which was fantastic when you want a little privacy throughout the day.
Condition: There are absolutely no flaws in this dress. There are no stains or snags. It has been professionally cleaned and preserved. It may need a nice steam once taken out of the box considering it's been packed away since the summer of 2018.
Alterations: The dress has been altered which I've added many details below to hopefully help clarify any of the alterations made along with some personal numbers.

- Weight: 125 - 130 pounds

Dress Measurements (wearing 3-inch wedges):
- The front lowest point on the bust to the floor - 48 inches
- Armpit to the floor - 55 inches
- Shoulder to floor - 58 inches
- Bust - 33" (cups were added to accommodate a size D cup to eliminate a bra given the open back)
- Waist - 28"
- Hip - this dress flows out from the hip but it's roughly 37 inches

A traditional bustle was added in which 4 tiny silver sequins and loops throughout the bottom were added to guide the bustling.
