Do you have a Maggie Sottero stockist?  Dynasty is an extremely similar dress.

Here’s a photo from another bee

Why don’t you try one of those repackaging companies?

I haven’t tried them myself, but I know that over at the purse forum they are commonly used. I got a White by VW dress, but I had a family member in the US ship it to me in Sweden.

I can buy it for you. Also there are some great sellers on ebay that copy the dress and make it to specifications just make sure to chose silk fabrics. It is very easy to alter this dress to a sweetheart.

@Kerst:  you could also try it on at the store and then go to ” preownedweddingdresses.com ” you could get it cheaper from another bride.

Can you take a picture of you? I can have a friend with the ” same” body type. Try it on for you. I liked the one strap better from vera white, the fabric was way more elegant. Try to find similar styles so at leadt you know it is what you want. Originally I wanted Diana by vera wang to wear it with a sash like Chelsea Clinton did, once I wore it I was “O boy” and I ended up purchasing esther. If you do buy the Vera to be honest you should have no problem reselling it if you dont like it.

@Kerst:  I was in the same situation, but I figured that if I didn’t fit I would have no problem selling it in Sweden for at least what I paid for it. I mean Vera is really popular here, but you can’t buy them in Sweden. I was lucky though, when I got it I ended up loving it! They fit really true to size, and if you are between sizes go up a size and have it taken in.

@Kerst:  Hiya, I’m based in London. Where on earth did you find a stockist that has the Dynasty? I’ve emailed them all with no luck. Please let me know, thanks 🙂 I’m also looking at the Saffron potentially, but ultimately, it’s the Vera i’m after. x
