*REDUCED* Wilderly Bride 'Fern' Wedding Dress - Size 8/10
06 March 2020
Great - worn once
My dress is a beautiful unique design by Australian brand Wilderly Bride called ‘Fern’. It is a relaxed but elegant style and is very flattering on. It is fitted on the top half, waist, hips and bottom which helps to show curves but still be comfortable. The dress flares at the bottom with a beautiful scalloped lace edging to create a lovely hourglass shape and stunning train. It has capped sleeves with an illusion neckline, and matte satin buttons all the way down the back to the end of the train. The lace colour is Ivory.
The dress has a detached slip to line the fine lace. This is reversible (as in photos) and can be worn in ivory or sand. I wore my dress with the ivory showing for a traditionally “white wedding dress” but looks just as good with a darker lining - this really makes the lace stand out. Bra cups have been inserted into the lining and can be worn with either colour. The slip is a low scooped back but the lace overlay covers up to the neck.
This dress was brought new from a reputable boutique in Adelaide, Australia and transported very carefully back to the UK for my wedding day in September 2019. It has had some minor alternations including taking up some of the length (I am 5 foot 10 and wore flats on the day), the lace overlay was taken in at the waist and the straps on the slip were lifted slightly to help the cups sit better on my figure (this can be let out). I am a size 8/10 top and 10 bottom with a 34 C chest size. The dress was purchased as a size 8 but is generous.
Due to it being in two parts and no boning it is extremely comfortable (this was essential on my day after trying many with a corset style top and not feeling as though I would be comfortable enough to dance all night). The silky slip is a dream to wear.
The dress is in very good condition, some slight pull in the lace on the train edging which is not very noticeable and has been cleaned well immediately after the wedding. Full-length zipped dress cover included to protect it. Sold as seen, can post if required.
