The Helene bodysuit is perfect for a classic bride looking for an elegant and romantic look on her wedding day. The upper bodice of this bodysuit is made from beautiful, corded Alencon lace. It features a deep V neck and a sexy open back with long luxurious sleeves. The upper bodice is made of non-stretch lace and features bust darts and an invisible zipper up the center back. The upper bodice is lined in a sheer nude mesh liner of your choice. This leaves the bodice looking nude, but allows for a nude sticky cup or breast cover. Please note that this bodice does not come with any cups or support built in, but a local seamstress would easily be able to add them. The lower half (from natural waist, down) is made of a super soft spandex/cotton blend and features a crotch snap closure.
This listing is for the Helene bodysuit only, all skirts are sold separately. The photos above show the Helene bodysuit in a fair lining, paired with the Piper skirt in Sea Blue.

To avoid inaccurate measurements, we strongly recommend getting measured by a professional seamstress. If you are in between sizes, order the size up – it is always easier to take a garment in than it is to let it out. Because our pieces are all made from a standard size chart, please allow room in your budget for alterations to achieve a perfect fit. All of our items are handmade, so slight variations are to be expected.
Color Matching Due to the variation of computer monitors, we strongly recommend ordering a swatch if you are attempting to match any of our pieces to another skirt, top, accessories, etc. We are not able to confirm or match colors for you via email.
Customization We do not offer custom design services or customizations, but we love that separates allow brides to mix and match to achieve a custom look. Due to our production demands, we do not offer custom sizing.
Returns We do not keep stock on our items and all our pieces are made to order, therefore we do not accept returns under any circumstances. We are not responsible for inaccurate measurements, or weight loss or gain after an order is placed.
