Exquisite Essence of Australia Wedding dress - Size 10. I did work out a lot to fit this dress, so was more like a 9 to fit it comfortably.
Retail price was $2300NZD. I also had the dress altered (hem, bodice and cups put in, straps shortened an inch).
Worn once, and well looked after from a smokefree and pet free home.
Free cloth garment bag and plastic garment bag included to keep your dress safe in all conditions.
Beautiful lace cap sleeve, lace and crepe dress.
If you go to the website: www.essencedesigns.com and search D1897 you will see the dress being modeled, including a video of how it moves. Glorious!
I loved walking in this dress, it glides smoothly and I felt very supported in the bodice.
It is sexy in the back but also elegant and feminine. I felt so confident and myself in this dress.
I did have the dress altered and hemmed, with size C/D cups added - but these can be removed.
I am 170cm tall and wore with Monsoon brand Amber Lace Bridal Wedge shoe - which has a heel of 7cm.
I am not including the shoes as I am keeping them, but I would recommend them as they are a perfect match with the fabric of this dress.
This stunning dress is very flattering and features:
gorgeous lace back illusion detailing scalloped lace cathedral train zip under fabric covered buttons. a loop for easy wrist carry of the train hidden ribbons to tie the train up into a bustle - very clever for easier walking after the ceremony.
It is made to fit a small size 10: 170 height (with 7cm wedge shoes) Waist 70cm Hips 94cm Under bust 71cm.
It is a tight fitting style that hugs your curves and makes the most of every inch of you ;-).
Alterations were $279 value by professional bridal studio. I had the dress altered (hem, bodice and cups put in, straps shortened an inch). Altered to fit: 170 height (with 7cm wedge shoes) Waist 70cm Hips 94cm Under bust 71cm.
