The straps were shortened about 3/4". My heels were 2.5" tall, so the dress was hemmed in the front. My final height was 5'7". The bust and bodice were taken in just a bit (you lose weight from wedding stress)! As stated above, I had a ballgown bustle installed. No other alterations were made.

Galina Swg784 Wedding Dress
This is a popular Galina Signature dress. The natural waist and the shape of the organza gown are complimentary to any body shape and gave me much-needed curves ( I'm 5'4.5", 36C). The dress has a mid to low V-back with a zipper enclosure, which also helps shape your body. This dress was a perfect balance of classy and fairytale! I'm sad to part with it, but I think the versatility, shape, and beauty of this dress is going to make someone else really happy!
The organza gown has a beautiful flow and the chapel train is absolutely gorgeous. This dress has hand-placed crystals, beads, and sequins, and the spaghetti straps are also lined with crystal.
COLOR: I went with ivory because I think it's more timeless (I imagined looking at my photos 30 years from now).
BALLGOWN BUSTLE: I added a ballgown bustle to retain the overall ballgown shape of the dress. Eighteen ribbon and button bustles were professionally added to fold the train in underneath, transforming the chapel train gown into a floor-length gown that doesn't even look bustled! (see photo.)
DURATION OF WEAR: I wore this dress for about 5 hours (photos, indoor church ceremony, and reception). I changed immediately after, let my hair loose, and did all dancing in a separate reception dress.
AFTER CARE: After the wedding, the dress went straight to the dry-cleaner and, upon its return, has stayed in its garment bag untouched.
UNDERGARMENTS: I wore the dress without a bra (the bodice has cups installed), and wore Spanx.
P.S. If you have any questions at all about the dress or any of the details in the attached photos, please feel free to ask me!
