What a beautiful dress! 

Why don’t you try the dress on first? Then you can order it to be made from Jasmine or wherever, but at least you’ll know it will work on your body first.

pamela.w:  I think they will do a great job at this. You can look on their website and facebook. I think they have done similar styles before. I am ordering mine this weekend as well. And it is also a mermaid. We should keep each other updated with the dresses! 

You are in IN? I am in OH! hahahhaha

SummerBride2015:  what are these replica websites everyone speaks of? JBS and Jasmine? I couldn’t find the right sites after a google search. Can you fill me in? Sorry, I’m new at this! I am curious about it because I am really hard to please and I haven’t found a dress I like. But at the same time I’m super hesitant to order something I haven’t tried on… because I am really hard to please and I haven’t found a dress I like. lol

My advice is the same as the other bees. Go try it on if you can. I was in a similar situation, lusting over a Vera Wang. I loved the look on other brides. Then I had the opportunity to try it on and it wasn’t what I wanted and didn’t suit me.

pamela.w:  I would be concerned that that dress would make you look shorter, due to the sharp cut-off between the skirt and the main body of the dress. It might sort of cut you in half (not literally obviously!). Though it will no doubt look great on your body if you don’t mind the height thing.

If you’re able to find a store somewhere near you, I think you should check out the Spanish designers (Pronovias, La Sposa, San Patrick) as they have a few dresses with a VW feel. In particular, I’d be looking at dresses that flow more softly from the body to the skirt, and that flares from mid thigh rather than the knee – like a trumpet or fit and flare rather than a dramatic mermaid. Also look for ones with vertical details as they will make you look taller.
