    A-line is much more flattering and looks great! The mermaid makes you look a bit top heavy.

    I LOVE the A-line. It’s prefect for your figure! Honestly, the mermaid makes me think of Miriam Forcible from Coraline, but I think that’s just because it’s not altered right on top.

    The a-line on you is so much more flattering to your lovely figure.  I would go with the a-line.  Gorgeous.

    I love the A line on you!  It also looks a lot more comfortable to me!!

    The A-line looks oh so elegant on you and much more flattering!

    A line all the way! And it appears the polls agree!

    I still think a dropped-waist A-Line would look better on you than either of your picks, but you should go with the dress you feel best in.  I do think that particular mermaid dress isn’t right for you.

    The A-line is amazing. The mermaid is just . . . it makes you look SO top-heavy. Huge chest and broad shoulders with a tiiiiiiiiiny little bottom, which it’s obviously an optical illusion because you have a great figure.

    @fashionlove: Top, in general, not your breasts. Like another bee pointed out, your shoulders and chest look much broader than your lower half in that particular dress. Best of luck!

    The A-line is doing more for your figure I think. The second dress is nice too but I think it’s just not hitting you in the right places.

    A-line all the way! The gorgeous belt really accentuates your waist. The bust line looks amazing on you! And the way the dress just flows down is light and beautiful.

    How tall are you?  I think the reason the mermaid might not be working as well because it seems like its for a taller bride…the flare needs to hit you higher on ur legs…and the top seems to be not fitting correctly either (the upper beaded part seems to be wide in proportion with the bottom).  The fit seems off anyway.  If you are set on mermaid maybe try a different style..The A-line looks lovely.
