Stunning haute couture bridal gown from the 2013 Paris collection of the Israeli designer Inbal Dror, style BR 13-23. This is the most incredible dress, the photos really do not do it justice - I received so many compliments on our wedding day for this stunning gown. I wore the dress for only a few hours as I changed into a knee-length dress for our reception. As such, the dress is in excellent condition. I am sad to part with it, but it seems too much of a shame to have it boxed-up never to be worn again. The dress shade is 'nude', which appears as an ivory-blush tone, depending on the lighting, and features an intricate beaded lace bodice and full lace and tulle train. It is so flattering, and is a truly timeless dress. It is not overly revealing and is comfortable to wear. It doesn't bustle per se, however there is a wrist loop and the train is easily draped over your arm when needed (pictured).
The dress was purchased from Morgan Davies Bridal in London in March 2017 for £8,300 and worn for our June 2017 wedding. I am 178 cm tall (5ft10"), usually a size 8 and 32C at the bust, and wore 8.5 cm heels on the day. The dress could easily be taken up if needed. My full measurements are: bust 84 cm, underbust 72 cm, waist 69 cm, waist to floor with heels 124 cm, upper hip 84 cm and lower hip 102 cm. I was advised by the boutique that Inbal Dror has since stopped creating 'made-to-measure' gowns, and instead wedding dresses will come in standard sizes with modifications as necessary - for me this would definitely increase the appeal of a pre-loved dress, since the extra money for a new gown would no longer include the made-to-measure service.
I am currently living overseas and the dress is with my sister in central London - try-ons possible by appointment if you are London-based. Price includes PayPal fees, however it does not include postage. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you require further details or additional photos of the dress.
I had custom cups inserted for a more natural, rounded bust shape, and the dress was taken in slightly with these. There is the tiniest irregularity in the lace at the back of the bodice (pictured), which is barely noticeable and could be easily mended if desired. Otherwise, the dress has been professionally dry-cleaned by specialist bridal cleaners and is in immaculate condition.
