Laura Byrnes California Beatrix Gown in Black Velvet

Availability: In stock

Regular Price: $184.00

Special Price $73.60

Named with love and admiration for the inimitable Beatrix Ost, the Beatrix Gown from Laura Byrnes California is as timelessly elegant as the striking woman that inspired it. Made with plush velvet for a sumptuous feel, this full-length gown features a bateau neckline in the front offset by a dramatic v-silhouette at the back along with figure-flattering princess seaming running from the base of the carefully gathered underbust to the hem to elongate your shape. As gorgeous as the outside is, the inside is a work of art: Shaped bengaline bust cups and an internal bengaline shaper create a smooth silhouette, while the soft knit lining makes it incredibly comfortable to wear all evening long. Finished off with a subtle fishtail train and a bridal zipper at the back (if you have trouble zipping it up, just zip it up and down a few times to loosen it up!), this gown looks stunning as is or paired with your own vintage jewelry for extra glamour.

This floor-length gown is designed to accommodate women 5'9" and over. If you are less than 5'9", you may need to have this gown tailored.

This dress is perfect. I have to own a lot of gowns for work (I MC all sorts of fancy events) so I always apprieciate a good quality dress that I can machine wash and fits this beautifully. I glide like Morticia Addams in it! The shapewear holds shape well without being uncomfortable. Thank you PUG, for yet another marvellous creation.

This dress is gorgeous! It's also super stretchy and as a result I felt it runs very large. I ordered according to the size chart (44-37-47) and I was swimming in this dress. I've sent it back for a Large as I'd like a snug fit with this dress.

I'm 5'10 with a full bust and hourglass figure. I normally wear a size 14. I ordered a XXL. The dress "fit" in the sleeves, hips, and length. But, due to the unforgiving and heavy lining, the top of the dress cut me off across my bust line. If the dress were unlined, it would have been an absolute stunning dress since velvet is so forgiving! Sadly, I had to return the dress.

I went to a black tie wedding in New Orleans on New Year's Eve. This dress was so amazing the bride was jealous. It was a huge hit. I am usually a size xl/ 14-16 and apple shaped so I almost never buy form fitting dresses. But took a chance after falling in love and reading other reviews. I would like to say thank you to the others for helping me with this decision. The body shaper built in this thing is a gift from god. This dress made me feel so sexy and gorgeous. My boyfriend could not keep his hands off me. I bought this on Black Friday for $60 cheaper which definitely helped in my decision making. This dress is warm. The weather was supposed to be cooler but ended up in the low 70s and muggy so I was a bit hot. So this is a winter only dress. But if you are in the a/c you should be okay. I suggest you try this dress

This dress is everything!
It's super hard to find clothes (especially fancy dresses!) online that not only fit my 30f boobies, but also suit my other measurements. The built in smoothing/shape-wear is amazing (without feeling too restrictive) & stretch fabric helps the dress fit in all the right ways!
I didn't even need a bra (seriously, never in my life before has this been possible- the dance floor couldn't even bring me down!)
I felt elegant, polished and luxurious in this dress & have had many compliments to boot!
Measurements 37/30/37 bought a Medium and it was perfect.
