This dress is ideal for a bride that wants a vintage, romantic gown. It has a small train at the back, and comes with a detached long under-skirt.It could be worn with a long pair of gloves, to make the vintage look complete. It has been dry-cleaned, and kept in the dry cleaners box, It was bought in Rome (Italy), where I'm originally from, and traveled with me from Rome to Melbourne for my wedding day. I think the story makes it even more romantic.
There are some small padding (easily removable) that sit in the bust area to help fill the gown.... (I needed it at the time...not anymore!) The dress is from 1997, but kept in dry cleaners box, so has not been exposed to dust or left hanging for a long time. It has a little "wear and tear" at the very bottom of it, from walking all day. I'm not aware of any major flaws or faults with the dress.
