Mil getting married in August, can you help us find a dress like this but without the £700 price tag??

We are happy to pay up to £500, it's our wedding present to her! It's a Goat Whisper Lace dress in cream. The dress needs to be pale in colour, fitted, just below knee length, a v neck or scoop, maybe lace and must have cap sleeves or longer. Help, we are massively struggling, as I'm 37 weeks pregnant and need to be close to the hospital, so preferably somewhere with Wiltshire (we found the dress in Kim Vine in Marlborough) or on the Internet. S&B your stuff!! wink

What size?? The Phase Eight Amory dress would fit the bill but low stock everywhere. Image from$prod_main$.

AnitaPooh Thu 14-May-15 19:22:06

Try again....

Out of all of them above I have to say I think this one is the loveliest.

Swifey Thu 14-May-15 20:28:21

Thanks so much to all of you who have replied, I think I may have confused the issue with the neckline, when I said scoop I meant fairly low, not grossly so, but you know what I mean!! I totally adore the Gina Bacconi one, but she is probably a size 14, which seems to be out of stock, typically. Thanks so much again for your help, any more ideas gratefully received!

Ok, massive tangent but look what Ebay threw up - I had no idea mohair was a fetish item! shock

It might be worth calling John Lewis to see if they have a 14 in one of their stores. They're always very helpful. Alternatively, you could try contacting Gina Bacconi directly,
