It looks like the Lia dress to me. Keep in mind that the neckline could have been altered and that bustles are always an addition and vary depending on where you get it altered.

Are you sure it’s a Melissa Sweet? If it’s not the Lia dress than it could be the Marisa #726 – they’re almost identical, but I’m pretty sure the Marisa dress actually has a slightly different neckline (and the fabric is a little different as well – making it more affordable)

Either way, I LOVE those two dresses!

I think it’s the LIA as well.  I tried on the LIA at one of the stores in San Diego and fell in love with it, but not the price tag.  I ended up buying a Casablanca 1948 that came with custom alterations for about $1000.

This isnt the Lia, I saw these same exact pics on preownedweddingdresses.com… I cant remember if it had a different name or if it was custom.  Take a look under the Melissa Sweet section.  The neckline, bustle, and ruching by the knees are all different.  Beautiful dress though.

That last picture looks like another PoB dress.  I know it’s on the company site, but don’t know the style number…

It is verrrrrrrrry similar, but no, its not. The biggest tell tale is that that satiny sash around the thigh area is continuous (And Lia doesn’t have that bow?). It breaks in the front of the gown on the Lia. I actually like this gown you’ve found better than the Lia!

Just in case anyone is still reading this post, another bee told me it’s the Melissa sweet juliet.  I am on the quest for this dress but I think it’s been discontinued
