Ivory Guipure lace strapless gown with Cameo Pink underlay symmetrically positioned lace appliques at bodice and hemline. I purchased this dress at The White Dress in Corona Del Mar in January 2017, and wore it for my wedding in August 2017. This dress is in PERFECT CONDITION!!!! ...and absolutely Stunning! I purchased this dress NEW to order, it was not a sample sale, and was cleaned IMMEDIATELY after my wedding- so it hasn't been sitting around for years, compromising the integrity of the material. I was really looking for a dress that was more unique and wasn't your typicall ALL lace dress. This one definitely stands out with the gorgeous French Guipure lace that is placed perfectly so it accentuates your curves, and the subtle blush pink underlay and illusion neckline and back that makes the dress so romantic! Plus...it is super lightweight--making it easy to move and dance in. I had a summer wedding so the lighweight material kept me cool all day! I'm 5'5, 118lbs, 32C and wear a street size 2. I wore 3.5 inch heels with the dress. The dress is floor length. I paid $500 for a professional cleaning and measurement package so the dress is like NEW. The dress will come with an enclosed certificate from the cleaner/alterer (Bridal Gown Care- www.totalbridalgowncare.com) that attests to the fact that it was fully restored to like-new condition and detailed measurements of the dress (after alterations). The front illusion sheer piece is the ivory sheer as pictured and standard from the designer. I had the designer special make the back sheer piece so it is "nude" to create a true illusion to the back. **Open to fittings in the Orange County/Long Beach California area**
I had a custom made single layer, cathedral length veil by couture bridal accessory designer, Renee Pawele (https://www.reneepawelebride.com). I wanted the lace on the veil to compliment the French Guipere lace, but not be exactly the same. The designer, Renee, happened to be at the bridal boutique doing a trunk show while I was doing my fitting and she custom designed this veil to compliment the dress and not take away from it in any way. The lace starts right around the shoulders (16" from the comb) and cascades all the way down. Selling separately in a different listing for $500 but will include with the dress at no additional cost. ($3500 for the dress and veil together!)
I didn't really need a bra for this dress, however I did wear strapless sticky cups. I did not add any sewn in cups. I purchased the designer size 6 and had slight alterations to take in the waist, bust area, and length. I didn't have to take much in around the hips. I also had a double bustle added which allows you to still see the full back lace piece even when bustled up. In the photos, is the diagram sketched by Bridal Gown Care with the exact measurements of the dress they took AFTER my alternations. These measurements are specific to MY dress and listing. I have the pdf for better viewing. If you are interested, let me know and I can send that to you.
