MissSmithie:  Could you look on Etsy and see if someone may custom make it?  you know this dress reminds me of Sailor Moon’s dress.  Yes I read a lot of Sailor Moon as a kid.

Commenting to follow. I have an empire dress in a very similar style but unique beading. I’m not near my computer but when I get home I’ll post a photo.

This is the runway photo of my gown with and without the coordinating cape that came with it.

Here’s a photo of the beading on my gown IRL, it’s absolutely breathtaking in person.

My gown is from a collection from about three years ago and is pretty rare, but if you really love the empire waist style gown, Mori Lee’s “voyage” collection has everal beautiful options that have that shape http://www.morilee.com/bridals/voyage 

Davids Bridal also has several empire waist styles as well. http://www.davidsbridal.com/SearchDisplay?pageSize=1000&searchType=1000&pageView=ViewAll&catalogId=10051&showResultsPage=true&beginIndex=0&categoryId=3002605&langId=-1&storeId=10052&sType=SimpleSearch&metaData=YWRzX2ZfZTNfd2Fpc3Rsbl9udGtfY3M6IkVtcGlyZSI%3D

MissSmithie:  

I am a dress consultant and thought I would try to make some suggestions!

Also if your heart is still set on that dress in the photo and you have exhausted all other options (looking in stores etc.) there is one legitimate replica site I have seen and many bees use however it is the only site like this I would recommend if you go that route. I will post a link to a board where you can get more information.

Hello πŸ™‚

That dress is beautiful. What a shame you can’t find it. 

It reminded me of one I tried in David’s Bridal. 

If you added some embellishment on the band under the bust I think you could make it very similar to the original. 

Although you’ve said you tried DB, so I guess this one was ruled out. Good luck with your search.

My gown is by Manuel Mota, he passed away in 2013 but he had many beautiful empire waist gowns unger prior collections, similar to mine but without the blue. You could look on preownedwedsingdresses for something by him or bridepower.com mine was from bridepower and it was new with tags and perfect condition.

And I definitely understand why you don’t like sweet hearts, I didn’t care for them either. I know they’re really popular but I just don’t find them flattering on myself. Here’s a few other options that are available that have a softer neckline with empire waist.
