I am looking for a lace mermaid like the one below under 700 USD but dont really know where to look. I do not want a lace up back- it has to be zippered. Also, the bling on the bust, is not that important. What i love about is the mermaid shape and lace.

Not sure of your opinion of David’d bridal, but they are both from there! I personally didn’t have a bad experience with the one in my area, so I am ok with them.

Have you tried preownedweddingdress or oncewed? Brides are looking to sell their dresses, used or new, and some salon owners sell their samples. You can probably also contact the sellers to ask if they’re willing to negotiate a lower price.
Here are some similar dresses I found. Some of them don’t have zipper backs, but when you take your dress to get altered, you can ask them to have a zipper put in instead. It’s something that should be easily done.
You could also have a dress custom made. This Etsy seller does pretty good recreation of dresses, and she can combine the top of one dress, bottom of another dress, whatever you want all for an affordable price. Here’s an example of the same silhouette you like that she made from a picture. She could definitely make the same silhouette in all lace with a zipper back like you want. And since it’s custom made, you wouldn’t even have to get alterations.
