Ladies…after heavy thought, I have decided to rehome my beautiful Pnina Tornai that I purchased through Church Street Bridal. I have attached photos of the dress, retailed at $8,500 through Kleinfeld in NY. She is 100% silk and very lightweight through the bodice with a slight bubble hem at the floor and a chapel length train. I have not altered her at all, nor had her cleaned. I have kept her in the bridal bag that Church Street recently shipped her in and she is all ready to go to her new home. The floral strap is very delicate and needs mended, since it is missing flowers that can be moved from beneath the “pouf” in back and up the shoulder strap. The strap can also easily be removed or shortened, as desired. The dress itself is in gorgeous condition, but will need to be cleaned as it was a sample dress. PM me for details and more photos if you are interested! Thanks, ladies!

@boombacha: Don’t mean to be in your business, but why do you have to sell it?

@YSQueen: To be completely honest…the dress is simply not very flattering on me. πŸ™ It strictly has to do with my body type (ZERO hips) and the way the silk is designed to cling to and compliment one’s natural curves. It is an unbelievable dress (as you can see on the model) and I just don’t do it justice. I need more boning and natural shape in a dress or at least a fuller bottom to imply curves. Ha.

@boombacha: I’m sorry to hear that. If I didn’t have my dress already, I would really be considering that Pnina because it’s GORGEOUS!!!

The Pnina is an unaltered size 8, to those interested!

Waist 26

Hips 37

Keep in mind, the back is lace-up and allows for some flexibility in size. πŸ™‚

@mduncanywca: Oh, don’t feel about about the new thread being started!  I’m part of another thread that is on Part SEVEN!!!  

Having new threads started isn’t a bad thing!  πŸ™‚

 

@boombacha: πŸ™  Did you try a similar style on before buying it???  It’s AMAZING how a gown that looks amazing in a photo can look horrible on your body.  (Been there and done that… loved the gown, but it looked pretty blech on me, lol. and I can pull off almost EVERY style there is!!!)
