The moment i first seen this dress on the GLL website i fell in love, i never thought it would suit my curvy figure and i tried many flowing dresses that covered my curves before i gave in, Alexandra was the 5th dress i was lucky enough to try at the local Gold Coast Grace Loves Lace showroom and soon as i had it on i instantly knew it was the one, not only because of how stunning this dress looks on but how comfortable it is to wear and how beautiful it made me feel, hugging in all the right places. I actually explored lots of options prior to ordering this dress, even purchasing an imitation but nothing compared to how i felt in this dress & i can tell you now its worth every cent, the stretch lace is so comfortable.
The dress was made early this year to my measurements which are: B: 88cm UB: 76cm W:68cm Hip:97cm S2F:139cm, Because of the give in the stretch lace it would fit measurements close to these i normally wear a size 10-12
i had the dress made to be worn with bare feet as i was getting married on the beach but i wore a variety of different shoes - including heals at the reception & i had no troubles at all with the length, this dress has a 80cm train (custom size & was perfect length without being annoying) i found it to be a the perfect length - it has two finger loops (one in the middle back of train and one to the side). The Alexandra gown allowed me to move freely on the day and was so comfortable.
There are no stains or tears on the dress and it was cleaned the day after my wedding following the GLL instructions and came up beautifully (GLL do not recommended dry cleaning)
It comes in the original packaging as new with hanger.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all.
Extra finger loop added to side of train No stains or Marks
From the Grace Loves Lace Website:
The Alexandra is for the woman who is a showstopper – she wants to look striking and feminine, but in a sophisticated and understated way. Our Alexandra was made for the GLL woman we all want to be – she is confident, but modest, she is an effortless, natural beauty – she has it all.
The Alexandra gown is all about the beautifully balanced silhouette, which highlights the female shape in an elegant and subtle way. The Alexandra has been handmade from soft, lightweight French lace and features hand cut lace applique on every edge. Beginning with a flattering high neck with a plunging V-neck lining and built in cups, the Alexandra has a daringly low, yet wearable open back, which is secured with a single satin button at the neckline. We love the dramatic fishtail skirt, which has a centre front opening and large back godet, with a stunning 40cm, 80cm or 120cm train. A concealed finger loop is featured on the 80cm and 120cm train. The 120cm train length also provides a bustle to keep you moving and dancing all night.
