    @laura.batty: I’d say both pics are trumpet shape, the second picture is just more accentuated, which I prefer. Mermaid shape comes in at the knee.

    I think the right looks better- the left just doesn’t look like a good fit.

    The original looks better!

    I think an even more emphasised mermaid would look amazing on you and accentuate your curves perfectly.

    In the picture on the left, the photoshopping of the image has made your your hips wider than in the one on the right (I measured the two pics with a ruler LOL). So it’s probably not a fair comparison. 

    OP, I hope I didn’t hurt your feelings in the other thread. I still think the dress is gorgeous and probably just needs steaming – and not being the store sample but a dress that has been altered to fit you, obvs.

    @Dogsbody92:  I totally agree!

    @laura.batty:  I would go for an even more pronounced flare at the bottom than what you have in the photo on the right.  It would be so flattering on your body!

    I know this is not what you asked exactly, but since you’re looking for opinions… I also have an “unbalanced” hourglass.  And I’m a bit wider in the hips than the boobs.  But for my wedding I’m *totally* adding some cups to the dress to try to “balance” me out a little.  Did you consider trying something like that?  You could keep the shape of the dress with minimal alterations, but maybe, like me, you’d like your fit in the dress a little better.  Just a thought! 🙂

    @laura.batty:   I like the unaltered photo better, not just because your figure looks overwhelmingly better, but also because of the design on of the dress.  The beading (i think?) stops before it cinches in and flares out, and in my opinion, I think this sudden stop of design would look strange and almost like the designer didn’t finish their job on the other silhouette.

    @laura.batty:  The dress looks nice both ways, but I think the version on the right flatters your figure more.
