It is an Essence of Australia sweetheart neckline, A-line gown, style D2121. The bodice has beading detailing and applique lace. The lace waterfalls down into the tulle bottom. It has a half zipper, half buttoned back and applique lace that extends down the exact middle of the back. I loved this dress from the moment I put it on, not wanting to take it off. The only thing I had planned to do to it was remove the beading from the bodice (I'm not a sparkle loving girl (including my ring ha!) and adding sleeves of some sort. However, it is absolutely stunning without either of those things too. Sadly, my wedding fell through for incredibly good reasons, and I never wore the dress. No alterations have been done to it so it will fit girls who are taller than I am just fine. I did purchase it off the rack at my local boutique and found one small tear in the tulle and a few beads already loose or missing on the bodice as well. Other than that, the dress is in very good shape having never been worn.
