Emma Domb Ivory Floor Length Bateau Neck Wedding Gown with Empire Bow - S, 1950s

About the Item

If you don't have the luxury of changing clothes between the wedding and reception, consider this floor-length gown to fill both roles. Its shorter hemline and swirling skirt are ideal for dancing, while the rear bustle offers the same interest as a train; its cap sleeves and dimensional center bow communicate modesty, while its low cut back imparts a touch of sexiness. The best part is the zig zag front waistline, whose apex terminates just below the bust to balance the bustle's fullness in back. We can only hope your new spouse is as charming and practical! Ivory lace wedding dress with ballet neckline and cap sleeves; deeply V’d back and zigzag seam detail at front waist. Gently pleated at rear bodice seam for light bustle effect; rear nylon zipper opening with hook and loop at top and rear waist. Decorative oversized satin bow at low center bodice. Lace is fully backed in rayon taffeta and skirt includes attached single layer tulle slip for fullness; attached interior camisole at bodice. fabric: lace, rayon taffeta noteworthy: dry clean only alterations: reattached bow where loose condition: very good with a few blemishes on lining and tulle slip and light rust discoloration at rear eye closures measurements: neckline opening: 11” across, 10” rear drop shoulders: 14 ½” sleeve: 3” from shoulder bust: 36” waist: 27” hips: free bodice length: 15 ½” from shoulder to highest point of waist seam; 6 ½” from underarm skirt length: 42 ½” total length: 58” from shoulder, 49” from underarm sweep: 120” label: Emma Domb (California) size: size tag illegible; comparable to modern size small
