Mantilla veils are very transparent. This lace mantilla has a lace edege that is about 2 inches wide. it is a waltz length veil of ivory bridal illusion edged with lace that the customer provided. We helped her shop online for the lace. This was an international order.
Note: the comb was placed 5 inches back from the edge at the request of the bride. She attached it bun and the 5 inches allowed it to fall over the top of the bun.
