Beautifully Simplistic for the bride that has that fairy tale day in mind! This dress is comfortable and flowy with layers of tulle you wont need a hoop skirt underneith! The back ties up like a corset and with extra material under the ribbon the dress can be adjusted to fit sizes between 8-12 or maybe even 14! Dry cleaned and ready for another day out on the town! the tasteful train has the option to be pinned up for dancing and no one will notice! I'm about 165cm and didnt wear heels on my wedding day-to give you an idea of how long the skirt is! The skirt was definately touching the ground! This dress doesnt belong in the cupboard! It's too beautiful!
