Ok, here are the pics!

This is the auction I won. The shipping and handling is where they make their money, but it was $204 total.

They also sent me a free veil an wrap (no pics of those). The material is thick and shiny and so soft! The beading is wonderful, the stitching is great! There is piping in the boobage area, it's AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I paid for it on Jan. 4th and it was delivered on Jan. 22nd, not bad. I have to take it in a little in a few places, but over all it fits well.

Forgive the pics they're taken on my cell phone (at FH's sister's house). I also just got off of work.

So I thought I'd say, I had FH do the measurements....but we had no measuring tape. We borrowed our neighbor's 1 year old son's toy measuring tape from his "tool set". But didn't do too bad, especially since the tape wouldn't fit around the...uh....breast area.
