It was love at first site. My mother says she knew it was "the dress" because I teared up trying it on. The Lanai is very comfortable. It was important to me to be able to dance, hug people and move in every direction without falling out of the dress or having to fix or adjust the straps. The Lanai did not fail me.
The length, straps and bust were altered. They can be altered again for a smaller size. I also added the decorative straps. The dry cleaner did a great job. There are no stains. I never unhooked the train so there's no wear and tear on the bottom. Worn one day and looks amazing.
