Check out Kittychen! When I read your description she was the first designer to pop into my mind. http://www.kittychencouture.com/index.html

Not as much beading as your inspiration pic, but the silhouette is definitely there. Here are a few that come to mind:

@Alleycat:o0o!! I particularly love that last one!! Although I guess the added effect of the model wearing 6inch heels on a pedestal & then draping the dress on top is influencing me a bit!

I tried on Maggie Sottero Ivandra. It is form fitting and then poofs into a whole lotta dress…if I went with this gown the neckline would be changed to a deeper sweetheart and the accent flowers would be removed. With that being said, I think it would look great will a blingy sash.

This is the one I ordered! It’s by Eden Bridals. It’s described as a “drop waist ballgown” but I see more mermaid? Idk. It doesn’t have the sparkle you want, but lots of other ones on their site do and they are really affordable. I plan on using a different sash to bring in some sparkle.

WOW. What you want is what I wanted- WORD for WORD. Tight bodice, sweetheart neckline, dropped waist, as full as humanly possible, lots of beading. Are you me??? Haha. I had a lot of trouble finding it. I almost went with the Dabra and I really like the Essence of Australia dress that was just posted above.

I ended up going with the Blue by Enzoani Cincinatti and adding a really sparkly belt and two crinolines. It still wasn’t exactly what I wanted (and now looking at pics, I really wish they had altered it tighter in the thigh area), but it was close enough and I loved it.

I don’t have any good pics yet, but this can give you an idea.
