The dress was altered to fit human proportions, cups were added inside, and a bustle was added at the back. The seamstress was really clever and hid the bustle hooks inside the beading at the bottom of the back, so it's totally invisible. She even added a back-up hook in case the first one gave out (which it didn't) so there's still an unused backup bustle hook if needed! The length of the train wasn't touched (against the advice of some who said it was too long!) I loved the long train, and it was perfect for my venue, but it could be shortened if you prefer. A few additional beads are included as standard by Pronovias, although none need replacing now, they will be included with the dress.

Pronovias Dravidia Wedding Dress
I'm selling the Pronovias Dravidia dress from their 2018 Collection.
It took me over 9 months to find a dress that was elegant, understated and still had the 'wow' factor, and the Dravidia is it!
Here's the cheesy description from the Pronovias website:
Some contrasts really make a difference, like this mermaid dress created in crepe and tulle. A dress, fitted at the waist, with a beautifully draped train. The bodice blends into the dress which has a discreet halter neck, while the back holds the best surprise, an incredible illusion neckline with gemstones, starting at the shoulders and travelling down the deep open back. A very special dress for that very special moment.
The dress is in perfect condition, it was only worn for one day and has been professionally cleaned since.
It's a Pronovias "size 6". I'm not really sure what that means, as when it arrived I highly doubt it would have fit any vaguely-normally-shaped human being! The waist was muuuch too tight, and the bust was giant, so I had alterations done to make it fit. I'm usually a street size 8 or 10 UK (Size 4 or 6 US) depending on the shop (as a reference, in Topshop I'm a size 8 in tops, and wear both their size 26 and 28 jeans), and I'm 5 ft 7.5 inches, and wore 2.5 inch heels on my wedding day. The dress had (and still has) some extra fabric in the seams, for letting the dress out. I would say that it could still be let out by about 1 inch all over, if needed.
The back of the dress is removable (all of the beads clip on as one piece) and I initially toyed with the idea of removing them in the evening to have a different look for the reception, but then the beads photograph so well while dancing, that I decided to leave them in.
I purchased the dress in Feb 2018 for my September 2018 wedding. I live in New York, but am English, so I ordered the dress in NYC, had all the alterations done in the city, and then wore it in the UK, which is where the dress is currently situated.
I got non-stop compliments on this dress (including from the men in my family who can't usually tell one dress from another!) and I would love someone else to enjoy it as much as I did!
