Beautiful Beaded Sleeveless Plunging V-Neck Fit and Flare Wedding Dress
I fell in love with this gorgeous dress because of the unique and slightly non-traditional look.
I had a hard time finding a dress because I didn't feel like myself in the poofy/princess-y wedding gowns. This one felt fantastic as soon as I tried it on: it was incredibly glamorous, and like nothing I had seen or worn -- but it was still quite comfortable.
The sheer mesh in the v-neck also made the dress feel very secure. I didn't need to wear a bra, but I wasn't worried about it going anywhere. You should know that it is quite heavy -- but it was *remarkably* comfortable to wear, and the weight is part of what made it so flattering. Because the fabric hung heavy, the dress didn't need to be skin tight to fit well: it hugged my body, while the beading made it more forgiving (vs a thin fabric). It also made the alteration process a breeze!
I had the dress shortened by an inch (I'm 5'10" and I wore flats), but otherwise, it fit perfectly out of the box. I believe it would fit people with slightly different measurements just as nicely.
The dress also glittered and stands out in the wedding pictures (which makes it all the more fun to look back at them!). We had some rain on the day of our wedding, but the dampness didn't show on the dress -- and we got some dramatic pictures under umbrellas.
The dress is slightly grey at the hem. It is more in the back than the front, and it's not super noticeable because of the texture from the full beading. Please see photos.
