The incredible 'Graciella' lace/sheer dress by Liz Martinez. Custom made in Tel Aviv and purchased through Angelica Bridal in London. The dress was ordered in January 2017 and worn only for the ceremony and photographs (one and a half hours) of my wedding in September 2017.
I sent my measurements through and was based on a size 10 dress. I'm a standard 8 in Australia. I've listed my measurements below for ease. I am 172cm I wore 11cm height heels on my wedding day and the dress was skimming the floor. You can have a professional take the dress up if preferred.
Bust – Around the widest point of your back and bust: 89cm (with bra): 90cm (without bra) Waist – Smallest part: 68cm Hips – Widest point of hips and bottom: 98cm Bra cup size. 10D / 32D in most bras Hollow to hem – The hollow in between collarbone to floor (no shoes): 139cm Waist to hem – (no shoes): 105cm Waist to hem – (no shoes): 105cm Waist to knee – (no shoes): 63cm Shoe height – (anticipated heel height if you have not yet purchased): 11cm Shoulder line – Widest part across body from the middle outside of your shoulder to the other side: 50cm Upper arm width – around your arm where the strap will sit (widest point): 28cm Circumference around shoulders (where top of dress sits): 99cm
Once it arrived in Australia, I had it altered slightly around the waist to be brought in and then a sheer piece of fabric added under my arm to allow for more movement. This is not visible when worn, I just couldn't freely move my arms due to the style.I added two beige inserts to cover my breasts and wore beige shorts. The intention is for it to be sheer however a slip dress could be worn underneath for more coverage. Cups could be added if desired however I liked it without.
It's in very good condition. I have had it professionally dry cleaned by a company that are specialists in cleaning wedding dresses. There are no faults or stains to the dress. As above, it was only worn for approx. an hour and a half. I got married in Bali so was just too muggy to wear on a stormy day.
In the photographs I have included pictures of myself from my wedding day.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or would like more photos.
Professionally altered around the waist to be made smaller. Small sheer panels added under my arms to allow for more arm movement - not visible when worn.
