I wore this beautiful gown in Maui for my May 2011 wedding. It is a size: 12 but I had it altered to fit a street size: 8. I am 5'3" and wore 4 inch heels on wedding day, so as long as you're 5'7" or shorter the dress length will not be an issue. It also won't be an issue to get further alterations done.
The dress had a chiffon/organza floral strap added, along with a sweetheart neckline, and a french bustle.
In total, I spent about $2000 on the dress, alterations, and the post-wedding cleaning and would like to sell the dress for $800 OBO. The dress is in mint condition. I promise you won't regret purchasing this dress--it's flattering on any body type!
Attached are pictures of the dress in its original form and some pictures from my actual wedding day with all the alterations.
