i attempted to
send this email to the sales address and to Victoria's
address but they failed.
i ordered the
sarongs i wore to my wedding through your site and LOVED
them! i thought i would attach a few pictures to show
you how i decided to wear them.
i ordered 2 of
the sheer sarong sets (in sunset and turquoise) and the
hilde in silk. i had a friend sew the ends of the sunset
and turquoise top portion of the sheer sets together.
this basically made one very long top piece using the 2
colors. i'm very large busted and cannot go without
wearing a bra. i wore a convertible bra and removed one
of the straps and made it into a halter bra (the
"Hollywood Extreme" from Frederick's of Hollywood). i
placed the section of the sheer tops that had been sewn
together directly behind my neck and brought the long
pieces around front. using a needle and thread, my
sister stitched the sheer sarong onto my bra along the
sides and partially under the cup (along the under
wire). she did this on both sides. then, i took the long
piece that hung down on my left side and, going right,
wrapped it around my midsection. my sister made another
stitch attaching the top corner of that piece to the
bottom of my bra. then, we took the long piece that hung
down on my right side and, going left, wrapped it around
my midsection. the top corner of that piece was stitched
to the other piece of the sarong that was now wrapped
the last thing i did
with the sheer sarong tops was to tuck the fabric along the
top of each bra cup into the cup. if i had a little extra
time, i would have made another stitch along the top of the
cup to secure those pieces in place. i would have also had
my sister make a stitch to secure the turquoise piece to the
back of my bra (in the picture of my backside, you can see
it peeking out a little).
then i took the top
piece of the hilde and wrapped that around my bust and tied
it in the back. i used the sarong broach set i purchased to
secure the silk sarong to the tops of my bra.
for the skirt, i wore
the turquoise bottom under the hilde bottom and allowed some
of the turquoise to go over the top of the hilde. i tied it
in a knot to one side.
i've attached a
picture and will send 2 more to follow in separate emails.
hopefully with the pictures, this wild description will make
sense. i looked through your website at all of the different
ways to tie the top, looked at pictures at how other brides
had done their tops,
Anjanette is wearing the Hilde in Silk Bridal Wrap
with both the sunset two piece semi sheer set and the tropical
blue semi sheers
She created her own style by wrapping the
sheers together as if they were one piece (but are two) and they
resemble a halter top. The superstole is just wrapped
around her bust and tied in the back, while the front is
pinned to the sheers.
We're hoping to receive more photos!
but nothing seemed
to be quite what i was looking for. i wanted to be able to wrap
the hilde across my front and have the long pieces billowing out
behind me. but i also needed to be able to wear a bra and a
halter seemed like the best option (strapless just doesn't work
for me). i also didn't want my belly showing. tying the 2 sheers
sewn together and the one silk in this fashion was the best
option i was able to come up with. i tested out lots of
different ways to tie them and this was the best, by far.
i just wanted to say
thanks for the beautiful sarongs and to share my experiences
