Flowing and airy A-line strapless Chiffon gown with sweetheart neckline, which leads to ruched bodice with crystal and lace detailing (see pic for close-up). Lace up back from top to lower back, so has room to be tightened or loosened accordingly.
Very comfortable to wear and free flowing fabric, not stiff. Heels worn were 10.5cm. I loved this dress as soon as I saw it because of its simple elegance and flattering style. The beading is gorgeous and understated, not like many other dresses that go to town on embroidery and lace.

I had a bustle of 3 ribbons and 2 buttons included in alterations so I could move around the dancefloor with ease! The length of the dress was shortened all around as well. All up alterations were $300. Worn only on wedding day (November 2014), then professionally drycleaned at Syndal Bridal Dry Cleaners in Melbourne for $350 (February 2015).
Slight tear (about 5cm) in the skirting that has been professionally mended. Not visible when worn because it's hidden under the layers of chiffon. I'm more than happy for people to come check out/try on the dress in person before they make their decision.
