I am plus size and although I did not get a mermaid, I put tons of them on and loved them! I think as long as you are proportionate with good curves they look great. However, if you carry a lot of weight in your tummy, it can really emphasize it.

I’m not plus sized but I think a mermaid dress looks amazing on curvy girls. Also, if you’re afraid of tummy being emphasized try a fit and flare dress. It’s like a mermaid fit but a little less dramatic.

Take this as MY personal opinion I really do not think plus size women can really look good in a mermaid.  I am plus size I know for myself no way would I look good in one. If a plus size gal has a tummy then no.  If have an hour glass figure sure then you could rock one.  Again this is my personal opinion and I will prob get slammed for it.

@chunkybunny: Sorry to confuse you! If you are hour glass figure yes.  For example me I have a bit of a tummy (okay quite a bit of a tummy). I carry my weight in my tummy, thighs and behind.  Someone like me would not look good in a mermaid. The picture that Snowpeony posted is a great example of a plus size woman looking good in a mermaid.

@chunkybunny: that kangaroo thing is what I’m talking about. Even in a girdle, I’ve seen it make brides look like they’re pregnant. I don’t really have a belly I’m just wide so it wasn’t an issue. However, I will say you should just go put one on! That’s the only way to really know. One of the style dresses I loved prior to putting them on, I hated on my body. Plus your bust may balance out what you see as a problem area.
