CONDITION: Pre-Worn & Altered
DRESS HISTORY: The biggest alteration was hemming the bottom. This was done while keeping the original shape of the hemline and working with the lace pattern. The dress was brought in at waist and hips a bit. The straps were shortened a bit so the dress sat higher, also lightly lined and cups have been added to the bust.
FLAWS: Slight discoloration on the bottom hem of the dress from dragging on the ground. Most came out with cleaning but slight darkness remains.

WHY SHE LOVED IT: I love the boho style of the dress, combined with the timelessness of the lace and train. I wanted something original and a bit funky but not too far from a classic wedding gown, and I found that with this dress! It also is EXTREMELY comfortable, the layer under the lace is essentially Spanx material and I did not need to wear any undergarments because it smoothed everything out. It's form-fitting while not being overly sexy, and hugged all the right places
HOW DID SHE FEEL: It made me feel beautiful, sexy, and unique! I felt like a goddess.
DEAR FUTURE BRIDE: You are going to LOVE this dress! It is an absolute dream to wear, very comfortable to dance and move in, and made me feel very confident. I wore a flower crown with it and felt like a bohemian goddess :) The one alteration I'd recommend is adding another button and loop for the train maybe halfway up as it did get a bit heavy on the one-button it has.
