The dress is beautiful and very light- made of natural silk and there is a small train. It has a corset back, which can be adjusted to different bust and waist sizes- I wore it near flush with the measurements listed. I also had a silk flower made, which is pictured, but I will be keeping the flower. Some of the fabric has pulled where the flower was pinned on, so would recommend you place a flower/feather/brooch there so that it will not be seen. The color of the dress is a soft white, I think the boutique called it natural white and a modified A-line. This was perfect for my destination beach wedding, but would also be perfect for anything outdoors and is elegant enough to wear inside a church. The dress was worn once and professionally cleaned immediately afterwards. There are some residual marks on the under layer of the dress hem from dirt picked up on the dance floor, but they do not show on the outside layer of fabric.
There is a French bustle which is perfect for dancing at the reception after pictures. This dress is made by a French company called Cymbeline, and the style is Stendhal. I payed $2500 for the dress in September of 2011 from a bridal boutique in San Francisco. Bust 32B Waist 26 Hips 36 Height 5'7" Height with shoes worn in the wedding is 5'9.
I absolutely loved wearing this dress and received tons of compliments from our guests and our wedding coordinator- it was elegant and beautiful and somehow also comfortable to be in for almost 10hours. I am sad to part with it, but we have had our first child recently and I am trying to make more space in the closet.
I hope you will love this as much as I did and it will make your special day all the more special!
I also purchased a second pair of shoes, satin wedges custom covered in natural colored lace to match, that I did not end up wearing and will throw in for free. They are a size 7.
Additional Notes: Purchased one size larger (US size 4) to ensure fit and then had the sides and hips taken in and a small "V" shape added to the top of the corset back. Also added bra cups and a modesty panel to the corset back (both could easily be removed). Hemmed dress to hit floor with 2in heels and added a French bustle for small train. Had to have one corset French hole replaced (metal around the corset hole), that came loose during alterations. Had custom-made natural silk ties for the corset lacing, for a longer bow/ties in the back. Dress altered is a US size 2.
Neckline: Strapless Silhouette: A-line Train: Sweep Height With Heels: 5'9"
