I bought a size 2 and I think the smaller sizes (0-4) sold out within 20-30 minutes.

You could always get the size 10 altered.

I don''t know what to do

The smallest they have is a size 10. I''d need to have it taken in, but then I wouldnt be able to sell it...or could I ? I definitely can''t get a store credit.
Even if the size 10 is too big, once you try it on, you''ll probably have a good idea if you love it or not. Before any actual sewing is done, pin/clamp it to your body just like they do in the bridal shops... if you love it, have it altered. If you don''t, return it for credit or sell it.

Ooo, I like it! We have very similar taste. Unfortunately for me, none of the dresses like this one that I tried on looked good on me

I hope you have more luck because I loove the style and want to see someone rock it.

I decided to get it! It was too pretty a dress to pass up!

I will see if they even can alter it one-two sizes. If not, I''ll sell it.

Here are the pics from the NM Collections web site:

I saw that dress and thought about getting it for a reception dress myself! But given that my size was already sold out and I didn''t want to spend the money on alterations, I passed it up. I think it''s beautiful, and it reminds me a lot of the J. Crew "goddess" dress. I hope it works for you!

I would say to go for it! I also liked that mermaid gown for $650. Its gorgeous! How do you feel about that drop waisted gown? I think its also pretty.

I definitely think you could sell this dress if you end up not liking it. Its a great bargain.
which one did you mean, there are a few that look mermaid-y? All beautiful

I''m actually getting nervous now. A coworker of mine just told me that she tried on this dress (she''s getting married this fall) and she was spilling out of it

She said there wasn''t enough coverage, and you could see her girls from all angles. She''s a little bigger than I am bust-wise but we are similarly built, although different heights.

Lord. I might have been a wee bit impulsive...

oops. I posted that i thought you might be more comfortable with a dress providing more 'structure' in the top. But then I saw you'd bought it already.

Maybe once you try it on the issue will resolve itself. You could always take it to a dressmaker and have cups sewn in and some structure/extra lining added. Might help...

I am so sorry Bia I wasn't here sooner to voice in my opinion (

) but then on top of it you already bought the beauty!!!!!!!!!! It looks very lovely. I like the idea of you purchasing it now and hanging onto it just in case you find something you like even better. $250 seems like a steal! Why not?! At that price! So when it comes, are we gonna see photos of it?

I do wonder however if it would look more like a dress for a day summer/garden wedding rather than a fall/winter evening wedding. It could work though...

Look at my girl Bia all wedding-dress-shopping......

Uh oh.....would you be able to return it if it doesn''t work? Or you would just have to re-sell?

Hey Bia,

If it doesn''t fit you properly, you can always sell it to me.

My "girls" will fit in just fine!

LOL No worries.

Usually I''m not afraid, but because it''s a wedding dress, I definitely don''t want to be all over the place. My bridesmaids dress at my brother''s wedding was cut similarly to this one and it was fine. But it was an espresso color, not white. That''s what''s concerning me.

The good news is that you did buy it a size or two too big. So, the fabric will be there, hopefully, and you can just get it altered around the "girls" and then add a lining, maybe?

I say take a deep breath! It will work out, and there are options if it doesn''t.

I think it will be fine with alterations Bia. Wait until you get it and then see how it is, and go from there.

I think you''ll look beautiful.

I''m such an indecisive person when it comes to myself, it''s a little absurd.

Lee: It was such a good deal, I had to buy it JUST INCASE LOL I need help...

Freke: Thanks babe. Leave it to you to be the PS sound of reasoning.

Elle: If it''s not meant for me, and you want it, consider it yours.

I think it''s gorgeous. Hopefully as you bought it a couple of sizes bigger they can work around the boobies. Can''t wait to see pics of it.

Bia, I hope it''s gorgeous and just the right amount of sexy on you, and that there is no need to consider the re-sale. That would be awesome if you got such a great deal on a gorgeous dress!

Exactly. I think it will be fine Bia. Really and truly.

BTW, between you and Clairitek, you guys convinced me I needed a NM dress. Thanks guys.

I probably missed it but when do you get it? Are you going to post photos? I can''t wait to see it. The newer pictures with the jewelry

. The girls will be fine with alteration

. If not, then don''t worry. If your wedding is in PR, you''ll fit right in hahahaha don''t tell your FI I said that.

BTW, are you really considering PR? Two of my very good friends got married there. One has a huge list of resources for places to check out, vendors, etc. She planned her wedding from Florida. If you do consider PR, I can have her forward everything to me and then give you all the info.

I had a NM dress with a low front, lower back, and size 34C breasts (not big but big enough). I wasn''t spilling out of it, but did buy wig tape to help with the top just in case. I ended up practising how I could move and bend and didn''t need the tape at all. Wig tape is really strong, it might be worth a try if you aren''t "spilling" but the dress doesn''t quite move with you.

I''m so happy to hear you bought the dress! After my post I realized that there were a few mermaid gowns. Whoops!

I agree with the others that said you could use whatever material is taken off the dress to add more coverage in the chest area. I might end up doing that with my own NM dress I ordered from Rue La La today because I have a feeling it''ll be a little shallow for my chest.

I can''t wait until we all get our NM dresses!

Thanks everyone! It's really exciting to think I might actually have my wedding dress. Can you imagine if everything worked out perfectly and I actually got the dress I'll be married in for $250?! That would be too cool...

Fiery: We are definitely considering a wedding in PR. FI was dead set against a DW because he has a lot of family in NY (all really). BUT, since we are getting to the point where the idea of dropping $70k on a wedding is making us a little sick, we have decided to not rule it out. Plus, since he's a Rican himself (well half) he really likes the idea of us incorporating into the wedding something that's such a big part of his identity, and mine really since although I'm not PRican, I am full blooded Latina. And you're right, over there they will be giving me pointers on how to make my dress "lo mas de sexy." Probably try and cut a slit somewhere...LOL
