"The Justin Alexander 8966 is a truly romantic dress. Hollywood glamour begins at the V-neckline with Chantilly lace, and accents of embroidered lace. Your sense of style is alive with the demure V-neck, Charmeuse lining, and invisible zipper." This dress is in colour way champagne/Ivory which I chose over the Ivory/Ivory choice as it seemed more special and it felt both timeless thanks to the exquisite lace detail, but with a contemporary twist due to the special colour way. I chose it as it was obviously incredibly beautiful with gorgeous details, but it also felt so comfy and easy to wear - just one simple zip and it's on. I also chose to have the additional under bustle fitted so after photos I could pin the train up and get on the dancefloor! I found the fabric really flattering and it helped smooth my silhouette (though I chose to wear spanx on the day I don't think I really needed them). It has a little bit of stretch too so eating a big wedding breakfast was no problem! Bought in a 'UK 20' though the label says 'US 18' - I'm told wedding dress sizes run big! I'm usually a UK 16 and had minor alterations made. I'm 6ft tall and wore flat shoes so minimal length was taken off in adjustments. Dress made in early 2018, delivered to me May 2018. Worn once to my wedding and has been professionally dry cleaned. I paid £1400 for this last year and have all paperwork relating to the sale and alterations including receipts of payment. When the dress came back from the dry cleaners I was told they were unable to remove some stains from the underlay on the train, I have attached a few photos and am happy to send more on request. I believe you cannot see the stains once worn as there are only a few and mostly on the underneath of the train lining. Happy to send more photos of details or wedding blog with more photos can be found here: https://lisahowardphotography.co.uk/2018/09/wyresdale-park-wedding-sally-chester/ Open to offers. Alterations The waist was taken in slightly, the length was taken up 2 inches at the front (if I remember correctly)and the shoulders were lifted about an inch (with the amazing lace details on the shoulders preserved). This is what the seamstress alteration sheet said: Bodice side seems: Take in bust to waist, taper pin/replace beads (£50) Hem: Hem x1 under layer, x1 lace layer - scallop end to fold (£100) Straps: Lift shoulders - replace beaded 'caps' pieces (£40) Bustle: under bustle [added] (£25) In total it cost me £215 for alterations MEASUREMENTS (approx measured at home) Bust 96cm Waist 85cm Hips 106cm
