The colour of the dress is listed as ivory but is almost white, an ivory veil will not match nor will ivory shirts for groom/groomsmen. The dress is a slim a-line shape, I am pear shaped and I found it gave good balance to my body type without adding too much puff or volume.
The inner corset is amazing at giving support and shaping your torso but gives flexibility to move around and dance in the dress. I got married in 35 degree Celsius weather and didn't find the dress too heavy or hot as long as I wasn't directly in the sun for a long period of time.
I have the veil (dry cleaned as well) available if you would like it for an additional $125.00 (purchase price was $275). It has crystal details along the edge to give it just enough detail and weight to bring a little extra to the gown.
