The only place I saw lace dresses even remotely in that price range was david’s bridal. The designer lace dresses I looked at were mostly in the 1000+ range. 

You could try PS bridal for a cheaper designer dress, or check out samples – there is a plus bridal boutique in our area and the shop where I bought mine had some plus samples (not sure how many relative to the rest, I just know that they had to pull one so I could see a color combination), it just might take a lot of looking.

Alternatively, some people have had luck with online custom gowns, but I don’t have experience with that.

Definitely David’s Bridal. I’m a street size 16 and my dress came from DB, cost $450. Recently I saw my dress on sale for $299.

@mozchick: Hi! Alfred Angelo does a lot of their dresses in plus sizes and many are under $1,000. Mine is kind of informal for a beach wedding and costs in the $500-$600 range

You can try craigslist. I got my dress brand new from someone I found on there.

I found my used dress from recycledbride, and it cost next to nothing.  I would check it out!  It didn’t make sense for me to spend all that money, which I don’t have, for a dress I’ll only wear for a few hours.  Good luck!

@mozchick:  That dress does come full length.  It hink it comes with a removable liner so you can wear it short or long.
