“I got married 12 yrs ago this coming June, and for my first 2 shaitles I got contessas. they were without a doubt the best 2 shaitles i ever had! everything she said is 100% true!! it never got knotted and i ALWAYS washed and set them myself. was sow low maintenance!! and they lasted me 10 yrs!!! my sister in law got married 1 yr after me and she also got a contessa. her shaitle is still going strong and of all her shaitles, she will tell you her contessa is by far her best piece.
