DISCOVER YOUR DREAM WEDDING DRESS. SHOP DESIGNER NAMES
This dress is Allure #9510. It's ivory crepe fabric with an illusion/beading on the bust and down the back. It's very flattering for all body types. It's a size 14 and I wore 8-10 in women's clothing at that time. It was purchased in 2019, worn for a few hours during my elopement. The dress originally came with a cathedral train, however I'm super clumsy so the dress had to be hemmed to be floor length all around. There are beautiful lace inlets in the bottom of the dress which I found to be really beautiful and kept the bottom half interesting while still allowing the top to be the main focus. There's also a slit on the left side that went up to mid thigh on me. I also had the top taken in by about 3 inches and the beading tightened. I've made sure to have the dress hanging on the hanging straps and not on the illusion straps so as not to have them stretch out. The cups are lightly padded and have a good bit of structure to them but still are very natural looking and will conform to many breast shapes. I opted for clear fashion tape/boob tape ($10 on Amazon) which worked wonderfully for me and wasn't able to be seen through the illusion part. The seamstress also showed us that we could add in thicker cups and have them sewn in, and suggested even taking a bra that fits really well from home with an underwire, taking it apart and having that sewn in for the best support. I thought that was genius, but not the look that I personally wanted in the dress with my body type. All pictures are of the actual dress except for the front photo with the bouquet, but I included that so you could see the details on the front. Let me know if you have any questions!
