This dress is custom made by a wedding gown tailor I know in South Africa. The bodice is boned so it doubles as a corset which gives beautiful contours from the bust to the waist. The bodice has a lace-up back,and beaded.
The gown has a medium train, it has a seperate petticoat with a wire loop and, a few layers of stiff mesh fabric, and lining, all these layers give the gown very nice volume, but also sits elegantly and not too ball-gown.
I am 160cm tall and 56kg at the time of the wedding, my measurements are 10D bust and I had 10cm heels on the day. The dress can adjust to smaller or bigger due to the lace up back and length is easy to adjust with the tulle ruffles. I have very average leg length but this gown gives great illusions.
The gown has been not been professionally dry cleaned, but is in pristine condition looks brand new no marks or tears and is boxed ,it has very minor discolouring on the underside of the train.
