A gorgeous fit to flare gown with an illusion, buttoned back; covered in embroidered lace and clear beading is the ultimate in romance and femininity. I wanted comfort and beauty, and this dress was unbelievably comfortable and easy to move in. This worn-once beauty is a size 14 and constructed with ivory lace and almond tulle with ivory regency organza over a champagne gown. The exquisite embroidery and clear beading is breathtaking. I had the sweet and romantic belt, with flowers, permanently attached to the gown, which ties into a draping bow in the back. Upon ordering my measurements were 38 1/2" bust, 31 1/2" waist, and 39" hips. I am 5' 4.75" tall and wore flat shoes for the wedding. I had the gown altered to have it shortened to my height (flat shoes), the lace added to the bottom of the dress (ordered it unattached knowing I'd shorten the dress and have to remove), reduced the bust, hip area, and had the decorative belt attached at my waist. The gown's long train was easy to pin up for the reception/dance. I adore this dress and it made me feel sexy and beautiful on our wedding day, but it is too beautiful to stay in a box. I want another bride to experience this amazing gown. Immediately after the wedding I had it professionally cleaned and preserved to keep it in perfect condition.
