I just bought my beautiful LZ3217 from preowneddresses.com and tried it on for the first time. It is the most spectacular dress I’ve ever seen with the detailing, metallic embroidery and crystal work. BUT I said all along I did not want a mermaid shape, it is too sexy and form fitting for me, and what did I end up with?
I’m wondering if I could get your opinions and if you guys think I should wear the mermaid dress or alter it to be more of a ballgown (less flattering and lose some of the crystal detailing on the bodice..)
Oh side note- I will be a 24 yr old bride, size 4.

That dress is absolutely beautiful!! I would probably need to see a picture of you in the dress, but I don’t think anything needs to be changed. But at the end of the day it’s what you want and feel comfortable in.

Honestly I have the same problem!!! My dress comes mid thigh and it’s too sexy for me. I am bringing the skirt up about to the hip bone area to make it more fit and flair. But honestly ur dress is gorgeous and I wouldn’t even consider it a true mermaid!! Whatever u decide I hope YOU are happy with it!!

I don’t think you can alter that dress to become a ballgown. The silhouettes are just too different for that drastic of a change.
And BTW, that is a GORGEOUS dress, and I think you would look amazing in it! I thought I couldn’t pull off a mermaid silhouette and then fell in love with one anyway. It ended up being perfect. You’re probably being more critical of yourself than you should be.

Why don’t you post some pictures of yourself in the lazaro mermaid dress?

Oh, i love this dress so much! I think you should embrace your body and rock the dress as is! Really, with all the accessories and such, it’s not that “sexy”

@KHarm004: I think it is fine,and is not as form fitting as your traditional mermaid. But even if it was, you probably have a really nice figure and may regret it later if you don’t show it off a little on your big day!
