Mother of the Bride dress help

I found the perfect MOB dress for me, but when I went to order it, it wasn't available anymore. I even called Macy's to see if there were any available that weren't showing online. I've searched the internet for the dress and can't find it anywhere. What I love about it is the waist rushing and a little sparkle, plus I needed a 4 petite. This is it:
https://www.macys.com/shop/product/b...tegoryID=55596

I know it shows available, but trust me it isn't.
Anyway, can anyone find this online or something similar in that size? It can't be navy or burgandy.
Thanks for your help!

It is stunning!!! Maybe something
Similar at a bridal store?

Have you tried Thred Up or Poshmark? eBay?

Beautiful dress! It doesnít say available for me. It says low stock. If itís really perfect for you, have you considered buying the available 8P and having it altered?

Amiga, I did consider that and actually called Macy's to get the 8 and right in the middle of the transaction she said it wasn't available anymore. Frustrating that it still shows available or low in stock.

I did a google search of Betsy and Adams gown and a number of them came up. It looks like Nordstams sells that brand. My intetnet is slow so I did not click on any.

Try Dillards,Nordstorm or Davids Bridal. Try the Macys website again cause it just let me put in in my shopping bag and check out.

Weird, now that link isn't even going to the correct dress. I guess it's gone for good. Thanks for the suggestions!

I think it went to the right dress when I clicked the link. Only gray and wrong size, but a nice dress. I agree with the suggestion of trying another store for the same dress.

I found the perfect dress for our son's wedding last year at a site called "Couture Candy". You can filter by size, color, and style to narrow your selections. I would suggest you also check out the "sale" section. The dress I went with was on sale for $275, but was currently being sold elsewhere for as much as $600.
Be sure you look carefully at measurement as they vary by designer.

You guys! I went back to Macy's and it was there again size 4. I went through the process yet again (twice) to not have the payment go through. So I thought, maybe I won't check out as a guest this time and make an account. And BINGO! It went through!! I am soooo happy right now. Thank you for all your help and suggestions. It comes it by the end of the week, yipee!

Yeh! I hope it is the perfect dress. It showed up for me so I wondered if it was because I'm some kind of preferred customer...get notices of sales etc..

It tells me it's unavailable. It's gorgeous!!

I just saw that you got it after all! I'm so glad!

I'm annoyed with Old Navy- I ordered a few things I needed to fit my "new, curvier" (read: bigger ) figure and a day or so after the order went through- all stuff on a great sale- it told me sorry, one wasn't in stock but here's a 10% off coupon. Very nice to get some money off, but that won't get me even close to being able to purchase the same piece of clothing at the cheaper price (it was 50% off).

I am so glad you got your dress. I was able to view that same dress in Eggplant but the model was white and a little heavier-- Also, it showed "Product not currently available" in your link. But just under that, it was there and listed as on sale for $79.

So happy for you!!! It's always good to keep checking. I did this with an MZ Wallace bag. It was a new collection and they said they were NEVER getting it back. But the next day, there it was...low stock, but I got it!!
