I wore a big ballgown, and since I’m a bigger girl I could never pull it off a form fitting dress. But if I were smaller I would love to wear Maggie Sottero Adorae.

I think it would be this one.  Unfortunately I looked awful in that style!

This is the one I decided on:

I picked an A-line (that I may get tailored to be a little more trumpet-y because it kind of looks like it should). I guess the opposite would either be a huge ballgown or a true mermaid that’s form fitting down to the knee and flares waaay out. 

 

This is my DREAM ballgown. Don’t have a dream mermaid, but there are a lot of Maggie gowns that I think are beautiful.

@Lyndzo:  Me too! And I did try it on and showed it to the bee…the results were not favorable. My stomach/hip area does not curve in a way that looks good at all in that silhouette. But I loved my a-line/ballgown dress!

I’d so a fit and flare/trumpet. Instead I’m actually doing ballgown.
