This beautiful ivory fit and flare / trumpet / fishtail gown with an almost A-line skirt was worn once in January 2016. It boasts with a boat neck and beaded appliques. The all over Chantilly lace, fitted bodice, chapel train, and four skirt layers (not including slip) make for a wonderfully feminine and romantic feel. The flatteringly plunging back balances out the higher collar, and the sleeveless design allows for freedom of movement. Both the fit and the flare of the skirt make the gown comfortable to walk in and excellent to dance in.
Damage: None. The dress is in pristine condition without any signs of wear or damage. It was professionally packaged and preserved through David’s Bridal Wedding Gown Preservation Kit.
The only structural way the dress was altered was in length. The current measurements are 53 1/4 inches from neckline to front hem, and 54 1/4 inches from center collarbone (hollow) to front hem.
A bustle was added, so that the train didn't interfere with dancing and greeting guests at the reception. The third photo shows the bustle up close. One benefit of the detailed lace style with delicate buttons up the back is that the subtle buttons and thread loops of the bustle are only visible when the train is down if you are really looking for them.
Finally, the belt was attached to the dress to accentuate the waist and finish off the look. It is sewn onto the dress on each side of the zipper so as to not interfere with the use of the zipper. The false buttons which cover the zipper maintain the elegant, detailed look, while the zipper makes the dress easy to put on and take off.
The gown can be taken in two sizes and let out up to one full size, without affecting its structural integrity.
(If the buyer would like it, I will include the slip originally worn with the dress at no additional cost.)
