The dress is a Mori Lee – Julietta plus size dress. It is a cream lace top with straps, has a champagne bottom (made with lots of layers of tulle material) with beaded detail around the waist. It is fastened with a zip down the back with fake buttons over the top to disguise it. It has a reasonably long train
The dress is in great condition, having been dry cleaned to remove a small amount of make up and mud from the wedding day itself as well as giving it a freshen up. A few of the beads are starting to loosen on the dress, which were like it when I wore it, but it will be your preference if you want to attach them fully or not.
I have has some changes made to the original dress which can be easily returned back to how the dress arrived.
1. Removal of some of the boning around the chest area to stop this area being so pointy
2. 2x additional panels made from the champagne skirt material under each arm to make the bust area larger
3. The dress has been taken up at the front so I was able to have the toes of my heels on show, as well as being able to wear my evening trainers without standing on the front of the dress. I am 5′ 5″ to put this in to perspective and have added a photograph of me in my shoes so you can see the raised front.
It was such a fun dress to wear, and moved beautifully throughout the day, especially during the first dance. It is a classic princess dress which hid all the bits I am conscious about, as well as accentuated the parts I love about myself. I have attached pictures of me in the dress on the day, two professional photographs of the dress hanging, as well as a picture of the underarm panels so you can see how they look. I also have a petticoat that works well with the dress that I wore for the beginning of the day, but removed after the ceremony due to how warm it was! This can also be available for a small additional fee.
If you are interested in the dress, I am located in Shaftesbury, Dorset, so delivery or collection of the dress is negotiable. I am happy for brides who are interested to come and try on the dress, please contact me for times, I work in a school so work hours vary.
I had the most fantastic day in this dress, and being a plus size bride made the choosing of a dress a very daunting process. This dress is flattering as well as super comfortable, and made me feel like a princess.
