**MON CHERI - LORETTA BRIDAL GOWN RRP £1595!!**
VINTAGE LACE STYLE WEDDING DRESS WITH SATIN BEAD EMBELLISHED BELT - UK SIZE 10 LOOK AT ALL THE PHOTOS - INCLUDES HOOPED UNDERSKIRT WORTH £85!!!
Also professionally dry cleaned and comes from a NON-SMOKING home. This dress is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I fell in love with is as soon as I saw it - I tried it on and it was a match made in heaven, it's perfect for petite and average height girls who don't want to be swamped by a big dress. It is made from ivory satin, over-layered with tulle, topped with a final layer of beautiful, unusual, vintage style silk. The waist is defined with a stunning ivory satin belt which is hand embellished with tiny Swarovski crystal and beads to create a 1920's style pattern. The whole dress is scattered with tiny Swarovski crystals that catch the light when you walk. The sweetheart style neckline is very flattering and feminine and the a-line/slight mermaid design makes your figure look great. The back does up with a zip, although it does have little crystal buttons to cover the hidden zip. It's much easier to put on and still looks lovely!
The dress is boned with a support band that fastens around the back so you don't have to wear a bra if you don't want to. Please take a look at the photos to see what I mean. It is dry cleaned and pressed in a wedding dress bag and comes with the underskirt designed to go with it
I purchased this dress from a boutique late last year for my wedding this September. It cost £1595 plus the cost of the underskirt (£85) and I payed £75 for it to be dry cleaned - a total price of £1755!!!
Please note that I had to have this dress altered as I lost more weight the I thought I would when I ordered it. I am 5ft exactly, but wore 6 inch heels (my husband is 6 feet tall so I didn't want to look too short!) so it would suit anyone 5ft6 and below. I had the top taken in - it was still a bit loose though and there is still a tolerance built in for further alterations. My measurements are as follows:
Height with heels - 5ft6
Bust - 32DD
Waist - 27 inches
Hips - 40 inches (I have a bum to rival Beyoncé so there is room to have this taken in!!)
Dress size - Top 8-10, Bottom 10
As you can see from the photos which provide and example, there are still a few marks on the underside of the satin base layer. These are in no way noticeable when you are wearing the dress, but in the matter of full disclosure, I would rather let you know. I got married in Central Park and was walking around a lot so this is how these came to be. I have had the dress dry cleaned but they informed me that some of the marks could not be removed or it would damage the integrity of the fabric (?!) The top hook and eye on the back fastening is also broken, but a seamstress (try your local market) will only charge a couple of pounds to have a new one put on - or you could simply stitch one on yourselves. The dress still fastens fine without it though if you don't want to bother. I just didn't fancy taking it after I had just had it cleaned as I didn't want it getting damaged/dirty. I will send it to you in the original canvas dress bag (which I haven't even used) and on a wooden hanger.
Collection is also welcome - I will invoice you minus the P & P charges if this is better for you - I would prefer this as I know the dress will be safe!!
