This dress is simply stunning! I had many people tell me they've never seen a dress like this, and I have to agree, I felt so special in it! Berta is an extraordinary designer, you simply cannot be disappointed in the craftsmanship, flattering structure, or unique design of her masterpieces. This dress leans off-white/eggshell and has a nude underlay beneath the lace giving it a somewhat see-through illusion that is very tasteful and elegant. The lines through the hips are incredibly flattering and it was overall very comfortable. The shoulders/sleeves stayed perfectly in place and there is the right amount of give in the fabric to actually eat and dance :) This will be hard to let go but it’s time....my custom made cathedral length veil will be included as well if you like!
Dress size: 38 Eur (Berta notoriously runs small like the other luxe Israeli brands) My street dress size: between a 0 and 2, depending on label Bust: 34" Waist: 25" Hips: 36.5" Height: 5'5" Heights with shoes: 5'10" (wore 5" heels so it would be suitable for a girl 5'10" in flats etc or any combination of your height + heels)
Alterations: Very minimal! The dress was hemmed to above stated 5'10" height with heels in the front, keeping the original long train intact in the back. The bodice was only slightly taken in around the waist. The bust/shoulder/arms/side flank/illusion netting areas are untouched, as the open back and structure of the dress is actually very forgiving and conforms to your curves well. There are small padded cup inserts that were original from Berta manufacture and are easily adjusted to conform to your bust. **I told my alterations lady to please be mindful I may want to sell the dress and she’s a wizard and took this into account with the minimal alterations she did since I was informed it's difficulty to re-alter dresses if you don't take appropriate precautions.
An English style bustle was placed that is very easy to do (or not use if you prefer something different).
No flaws, stains, or significant damage! This has been professionally cleaned at a wedding dress preservation cleaners and is in excellent condition. Indoor reception and changed later in the night to a short dress.
I’m in the Los Angeles area of you want to come see it in person. And of course can send additional photos!
