Do you have a picture of you in it?

I would call it a dropped-waist A-line.  It’s tough to label it since it’s more mermaid/trumpet-y on one side!

Does it realy matter what the silhouette is called?

If you like the dress and like the way it fits you, what difference does the shape label make?

I truly don’t understand your obsession with this.

While saying you are obsessed with it may have been a little harsh, I do agree that if you love it does it matter what the “technical” name for the fit is?  It is a beautiful dress.  Congrats! 

If you are really interested in what the shape would be called try the manufactuers website.  They usually give a description.  Good Luck. 🙂

@Tina.Baker:  

It’s the 3rd thread this poster has created with the same basic question.

@bump:  I think the best way for you to judge how it would look more “mermaidy”it’s to talk to a seamstress and have her pin it in in the areas she would alter. I dont think the photoshop option u requested will give you a good image! Go to a seamstress….. Then take pics and see if you would like it that way. To be honest your dress was made the fit it was for a reason bc it’s gorgeous that way!! But if you aren’t sold on the silhouette then you have a choice of possibly alterinit but I think talking to a seamstress about your options is the best bet.
