These pics were before alterations – so the corset fits a lot better now!

This is the one I bought, sorry it’s not a photo of me in it…. the only thing is, it doesn’t look puffy at all on me!!!!!!!!!!! i think it’s because i didn’t buy the underskirt (is there another name for it???) and now I’m wondering whether I should……… either way I don’t want it to be too big like in the photo!

@mrsBtoBee: The poofy underskirt is called a crinoline. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

@anon12345: Did you, by chance, purchase that used off someone here in the classifieds? I love it!

@Amaryllis:  Thanks! I love it so much toooo!!!  No, I didn’t get it off the classifieds — was there one posted recently??  I originally had my heart set on Amsale’s Reese, but the bridal salon i went to happened to have Candace and I fell in love!

@anon12345: There was! We had been in correspondence for over a week to share pictures and discuss the price, and I told her I would buy it. I was basically ready to pay for it when the seller dropped off the face of the internet. I sent her multiple messages afterwards and never heard back. Don’t know what happened there, but I had thought if you bought it that would explain things! I have given up and moved on, but it still puzzles me.

Omfg Future Mrs. Martin…that train!!! SO much flowing fabric…I love it!

So I had my heart set on a particular ballgown for about 8 months…and now I am wavering big time.  Just as I was about to buy it.  Sigh…

@Amaryllis: Wow that really sucks!  There was a period of time after I tried on the sample before I knew that they’d definitely be able to order it for me, and if it had fallen through I would have been DEVASTATED.  

What size are you looking for?  I know our weddings are only 2 months apart, but maybe we could work something out…?

This is mine on the model. I got an even fuller criniline to wear under it. For me the fuller the better.
