This is my dress. I'm adding spaghetti straps to it, and it hasn't been altered (its way too long) but you get the idea :)
It's a Cosmobella #7411. It was about $1000.

For my body type I really needed to try on the dress to make sure it complimented me. Here's mine:

Also very beautiful! And I agree -- it's so hard to know what will look good on you. I went with something completely different than I had in mind. Congrats!

Totally agree, you need to try diff style to see which one fits u the best. A knock off is risky, as you dunno the quality and how it will fit on you. Some dresses are hard to duplicate, so it is hard to be satisfied with the end result.
I tried on so many (more than 100 in 3 months), and finally I decided to get a custom made one with my own design (an empire waist mermaid with an A-line tulle) instead of a generic one from a bridal shop.

I saw yours, its gorgeous! I learned at the last minute that an empire waist isn't very flattering on my body type. Thats the type i got with my knock off. I mean for some people it works, just not for me.

Thanks, yours is gorgeous too! Simple and elegant. I don't have much "assets"/"curve" to show it off in a simple mermaid/trumpet...heehee...I would look like a squid so I added the tulle on top.

I am so jealous that you have a body for the mermaid style! Your dress is gorgeous.

My question to all of you is: should I buy the dress now while it is on sale even though it is 16-17 months before my wedding?

I am going to try and upload pictures of me in the dress (hopefully it will work - this will be my first attempt at uploading). Sorry for the other bride in the background of the "front" picture. BTW - I am getting married in Mexico, so I thought the ruffles were a nice touch.

Who is the designer?

I just responded to your PM about the designer, but in case there are any other ladies out there wondering: this mermaid with ruffles is Allure 8705. I don't think the Allure website pics with the model does the dress any justice. They only photograph the dress from the side...
