I bought this dress a really long time ago (well, for me.. considering I've only been dancing a year and a half, hee hee) to prepare for a comp this coming April. Since then, I've actually decided to bite the bullet and have a custom smooth dress made. (So, I need to sell this dress in order to cover part of that order, you know how it is.) I was going to cut the floats off of this dress and make it a smooth one, but I decided (thankfully) to wait until closer to the comp. So, this dress is completely intact and ready for Standard dancing. It could however also be used for Smooth with a few minutes and a pair of scissors (and some careful eyes, of course.) This is a pre-loved gown that has not been worn in America. It was acquired from the Netherlands, originally. I would guess it to be a size 2-6, I am a 4 and it fits me quite well. It has built in panties and a B cup bra, with ample push up padding. The original owner of this dress was 5'9", I am 5'8". For this reason, I recommend this dress for a taller dancer, though it could be hemmed by a professional. (There are quite a few layers of skirts, however, so this would be something of a task.) The bodice is ruched black fabric COVERED in Hematite and Jet Swarovskis. (It is practically a solid mass, but does not hinder movement due to the fabric underneath.) The upper skirt is comprised of thousands of Crystal AB Swarovskis, stretching in darts all the way down to the floor. No matter what move you make in this dress, you will sparkle. Included also are two sleeves, and lace cuffs that snap over the floats. These cuffs are solid Jet and Hematite Swarovski. It also comes with two "earrings" -- loose pieces of stoned lace I presume are earrings but they have no backs. For me, the selling point of this dress (and I feel the best part, hee hee) is the necklace. Coming to a point in the front, it flows down the back and sets a beautiful contrast to your bare skin. The necklace snaps onto nude straps so that it will not twist, move or flap -- leaving you confident to stun the judges and your opponents. This dress is made of wrinkle-free fabric, so fold, twist and travel with this dress to your heart's content, knowing that when you take it out to put it on it will be beautiful, sparkling and stunning. When I purchased this dress it was missing quite a few stones on the necklace. I have replaced all of these stones and will be sending you with additional stones in all three colors (and sizes) used on this dress. I am asking $650 for this dress. You will see it listed elsewhere at $675, but I am offering a $25 discount to active Dance-Forums members, and I will cover shipping for a purchase made within the contiguous US.
