Hi everyone out there,
I found a mermaid dress that I absolutely LOVE and it looks great on but I don’t know if it’s going to be comfortable to wear on the day of or super restrictive. The lady at the store says it is sort of restictive but not so much where I have trouble walking. The one I’m trying on is clearly not my size, so it’s hard for me to tell. Has anyone wore a mermaid style dress for their wedding and have any opinions about it? I’m getting married on the beach in the Caribbean. Help??

Yowza, that looks good on you! Would it be possible to find a mermaid dress in your size, just to try it out? Even if it’s not the dress you intend to buy? That way, you could take it through the motions of walking around, sitting, and dancing, just to see if it’ll be comfortable for you.

Love the dress, its actually very similar to mine, I have a pronovias. Those are not mermaid style, they are called trumpet style becasue they do not open under your knees.
They are more restrictive (I was super concerned cause I wore one once and could barely walk) but they are not too much because the movement usually flows from the knees. I danced in it while trying it on a second time and had no problems, as long as you are not putting your fiances knees in between yours for reggeaton 😉
It is a very sliming style, makes you look curvy and sexy, without being too bad. and you look beautiful in it 🙂

Im going to be completely honest here and i hope I dont offend you! I think that dress is cutting you in the wrong place. I think it would look soooo much better if it started flaring out a little higher and was a drop waist instead of a mermaid. I think your figure would be flattered so much better. As far as the mermaid dress goes, I like how they look in pictures and advertisement, but not in person. I always feel that if you made them fitted enough to look good you wouldnt be able to move. In pictures they are always skin tight, because the model doesnt need to sit down or move. In real life they have to leave some wiggle room and I always feel like the bride looks like her dress is baggy in the back! Thats just how I feel anyway.

First of all, love the dress on you! It is so fitting for a beach wedding, the ruffles remind me of waves. I think you’ll be fine with the correct size as far as walking…work it, it’s for you!

That dress is so pretty that it shouldn’t matter whether you can move in it or not 😛

Awww! Thanks so much for all the responses guys! You’re amazing!!! I didn’t even think of going to try on other mermaid dresses in my size to see if I can sit in it, so that was a great sugestion. As soon as I put the dress on, I couldn’t stop smiling, so I know it’s the one for me, I was just a little concerned about movement. LOL to tulip and honeybun those were exactly my thoughts, but I figured to be practical and ask other brides/brides to be.
