Laura Byrnes California Beatrix Gown in Royal Blue Velvet

Availability: In stock

$184.00
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.

Lovely but didn't fitReview by Orcasmom

This is a beautiful gown, lovely substantial material, good styling, nice color. The length was just right for me at 5'10". The hips, butt and waist fit fine. Unfortunately, a 3x was a tiny bit big in the bust, and much too tight in the back and rib cage. I have a fairly large frame (pudge aside), and I couldn't zip it up and couldn't breathe even unzipped. It was also a bit challenging to wiggle into, with the lining. Sadly, I sent it back.

This dress is fabulous! It is a rich royal blue, is flattering and figure hugging in all the right places and accentuates my tall hour glass figure. I am 5'9 and the length is perfect for me. It is also great around the bust, I'm a 34F and often struggle to get enough support without looking too frumpy and loosing the shape around the waist- this dress perfectly flatters my waistline and creates a great silhouette. It is definitely sexy and I can't wait to wear to my sisters wedding - Another winner from PUG! Marvellous! (Posted on 9/13/2016)

The second I saw this on the site, I told my husband that I was going to have this. The price seemed steep, but for a gown, I could do much worse.

I'm 39-27-42 and 5'2 I decided to go with a large, but I really should have sized down to a medium. The built in shaper was JUST what I needed, no shaping garments underneath. And I wont' touch a wiggle dress without ALL the shapewear, so that says something. The quality of the fabric was rich and dense and worth every penny. The details were beautiful - the slight dip in the back, the empire bustline, the fishtail train! Even though I was covered head to toe, I have never felt sexier. This dress will give you a gorgeous silhouette. It was warm, but considering I live in a cold climate, this is a bonus. I wore mine to a symphony concert and got compliments and head turns all night. And I was comfortable all night even with having had a big meal before hand.

Yes, if you are under 5'9, you will need to get it hemmed. I took mine to my seamstress to hem it many, many inches and it still looked lovely.

TL;DR: Get this dress (on sale, if you're short because you'll have to have it hemmed)! You will look and feel like a starlet. (Posted on 5/16/2016)
