Just received this past weekend, never worn (except for photos here). $520 incl. domestic shipping. (plus any paypal fee associated)
This sure ain't your everyday, typical assuit cossie! You get the best of all worlds with this baby - The beading on this is craaaaazy, and the bling of the crystals is WOW! I personally have never seen an assuit costume with beading or bling like this before. I love how it's sort of a combination of cab meets egyptian meets tribal, without being typically what I would call "Tribaret." And she really matched her beading design so well with the metal design in the assuit.
This lovely was made by the always amazing Madame Noussa in Cairo. It's GORGEOUS but unfortunately (my loss is your gain) just didn't turn out quite as I had in mind (I'm VERY particular - just ask my hubby hahaha). As always with Madame Noussa, the quality of construction and beadwork is EXQUISITE. Will fit a 30-40 upper hip, fits my ample 41" lower bootay with easily a few inches of room to stretch, skirt is 37" long, bra easily fits my 34D girls and has double-support and comfort with both shoulder and halter straps (bra hooks will need to be adjusted) - length of bra band is 35.5" from end-to-end. Comes with 2 sets of armbands (1 with drapes, 1 without), headband, separate waist strap. Bra has beautiful belly drapes, sleeves and skirt insets (within the front to slits) edged with lovely irridescent pailettes. The crystals used on this costume sparkle like CRAZY!!!
The only "imperfection" (which could be fairly easily remedied by somebody with beading ability) is that the 2 lines of beadwork up the front panel of the skirt are not symetrical (see photo) looks like she may have gotten interrupted and not finished at the top of the one on the photo-right side (left as you're wearing it). Frankly, I didn't even notice until my husband pointed it out.
This costume really is EXQUISITE!!! Post intent here if you're interested! Detailed pics on FB (changed album to Public so all should be able to see now. Let me know if you need emailed.
