I tried on this dress (and loved it)- it is similar and sparkled like crazy! It comes in oyster satin with stone tulle, so it more golden than silver/grey. This one is too small for me and I was wearing granny panties, so that’s why it doesn’t look at good! It is Essence of Australia D1571 and about $1800 brand new. Best of luck finding your dress!

Allure C200, 9024, 2601, 2667, and 9051 all have elements similar to that dress. Good luck!

Seriously guys, having tried to lose weight to fit into a dress before when you don’t have to is a miserable experience. OP, I can’t find one for you right now, but I hope you can find an alternative soon!

I’d definitely check out consigment or sample size stores- there’s a great one here in Atlanta that carries a ton of the Allure line! And of course there’s some really good online sources- also my friend just got hers from http://www.bridepower.com/. They have a good return policy and she said they were excellent to work with.

@bmb5260:  I wore allure c267 for my wedding. now, I’m a hippy girl with quite a lot of ass, hip and thigh to go around. My seamstress let the dress out by about 2.5inches in the hips and but area. allire dresses are very well made and have a LOT of spare fabric on the inside layer. So maybe you could have it altered to fit? 

Or try bestbridalprices.com they have most allure dresses!

That dress looks absolutely amazing on you!  Sucks that it didn’t fit well enough for you to snap it up :(.  No real suggestions, except maybe look into the replica sites (Dresilyme, Jasmine) and have one of them make it.

I really hope you get your dream dress!
