mine is a trumpet. i am able to walk in it, but it’s tight when i sit down (but i can still sit).but since i love the dress too much, i am willing to deal with sitting uncomfortably 😛

(sorry about the quality of the photos, i only have big mirrors in my room which doens’t get much natural sunlight, so i had to adjust the brightness of the pix and, therefore, made the pix somewhat blurry)

i remember reading from other posters that their mermaid/trumpet dresses were so tight that they couldn’t even sit down and so had to get a 2nd dress for the reception.

i have also read that some mermaid (not trumpet) dresses are hard to walk in. if that concerns you, choose a trumpet over mermaid.

I actually just bought this yesterday in Diamond White after looking at it for months.

I cannot wait to try my gown on when it arrives next week! And then I won’t see it again until i pick it up from the seamstress.

^The first photographic glimpse my wedding dress designer has sent me of my dress (with the bustle in place)!! I’m very excited!!

Mine is more of a fit and flare gown (Maggie Sottero’s Anniston) but i had it taken in around the hips a little more..it is comfortable to walk and move it but sitting is a little hard since it is a corset back as well if i sit on a very mushy place i need help getting up 🙂

Mine! I’d like it a little more fitted/mermaid-y at the bottom.

here is the sample on me.

I am going to have it made into a sweetheart like this.

Ladies, you look gorgeous. I wish I actually had waist/hips to pull this off. Damn ruler shape!

I had a trumpet but I only wore it for the ceremony and pictures. It wasn’t difficult to move in.

Loved my dress… and it was not difficult to move or sit in.  Laughing
