I love this dress so much and got enough compliments to last me a lifetime while wearing it. I felt like a bohemian goddess. It’s in excellent condition. I wore this for only a couple hours during my ceremony & photos and changed into a different dress for my reception. There is currently no bustle on this dress but it can certainly be added by a seamstress if you wish to do so.
This dress was hand made to order. All DOS dresses come in sizes s-xl. I ordered a size small and am typically between a US size 2-4 in dresses. The measurements for this dress are: bust- 34 waist-26 hips-36
I’m 5’8 and did not wear heels. I also got it taken up just a tiny little bit so that it didn’t drag in the front. I’m a 32 C/D and decided not to wear a bra with it. I wanted to leave the dress as untouched as possible but it would totally be possible to have a bra inserted. The website recommends a sticky bra or tape.
It’s made of a beautiful delicate crochet lace and is lined with a stretch satin. The arms are un-lined. Has super gorgeous tassels that lace up the upper back and dangle on the lower back. I ended up tieing mine up so that the tassels didn’t dangle and you can’t really see them in any of my photos, so I included 1 photo from their website.
