Only worn once (ha!) then museum preserved. You will be mailed the museum preserved box. When cleaned and preserved, they told me there were a few spots around the inside bottom hem that had slight staining from dancing, etc., nothing noticeable from outside. Cover pic is from Maggie Sottero website, other pics were from wedding day. You get the flower belt, though I chose not to wear it. I had bustle ties (attach blue to pink) see pic of bustle, & bra cups added to the dress. Sz 8, laceup back.
