Gaia dress, as all of the dresses in our shop, is a two piece dress, comprised out of a sturdy and supportive bridal corset and a flowy romantic tulle gown skirt that you can mix and match with other pieces as well. Gaia's corset is also multiway wear corset, it has detachable off the shoulder sleeves, detachable tulle ribbons to form beautiful bows on the shoulder, and additional detachable wide tulle sash that you can shape in any way you want, creating bows, floral elements, or neat tulle folds. There are multiple Gaia listings in the shop, because there are too many variations to show in one listings photos, but please be assured, whichever listing of the dress or corset you choose - you get all of those three additions for the top.
The corset is made out of our finest bridal satin (one that is used in Julianne, Josephine wedding dresses, Aiko skirts, Nayeli corsets and more) and it's even coating thin neoprene for extra soft and beautiful texture, and of course it is fully boned and supportive, has custom built in cups for your bust as well. It laces up in the back and has a modesty panel behind the lacing. It is suitable to be worn inside or over the skirt, whichever you prefer. It comes with: detachable off the shoulder tulle balloon sleeves, detachable tulle ribbons/straps and detachable tulle sash, all of which will allow you to feature multiple looks in one night, or different looks for ceremony and reception, or throughout different photoshoots. Shown corset is in champagne color. You can see that very same fabric in white in Faerie bodysuit listing, and ivory in Nayeli corset listing.
The skirt is made 5 layers of tulle, two of the top ones are very thinly and neatly pleated and then formed into pick ups, creating beautiful and romantic folds. By default we used taupe color for the inner layers of the skirt, and outer layers in ivory, but you can choose any combination of two colors you wish, and yes, everything also can be white or ivory.
This listing features most of the photos with the off the shoulder balloon sleeves.
