    I love the bottom dress on the model’s figure but not on the body type pictured in the other photo. The transition at the thigh to where it flairs out is not as seamless as it appears on the model, this could just be the way the dress is IRL though. I feel like you might have to “hop” rather than “walk” down the aisle in the second dress!

    I’m not the biggest fan of where the dress flares out on you on the bottom pic. A fit and flare might be a more flattering silhouette. I do like the top dress, and it may be better on because it doesn’t poof so much on the bottom. I say keep looking around a try a few different shapes.

    I think you should keep trying different silhouettes! Sometimes we have this image in our mind of the perfect dress, but in reality the dress might not translate so well onto our own bodies.

    I don’t think this silhouette is the best choice for your body type. It looks like you have nice curves, but I think that the mermaid dress makes you look too petite. I bet an A-Line would look beautiful! I would ask a bridal consultant to pull what she (or he) thinks would be flattering to your body.

    I think a fit and flare would be much more flattering. It’s not a size issue, it’s more that the dress is fitted to so low that it cuts you off. I’m 5’2″, and something that was fitted to right at the hip or right below the hip was much more flattering on me because the bodice:skirt ratio was better

    I really like the way the Mori Lee look on you! You have an hourglass figure, so that silhouette is perfect for you!

    I also agree to you trying for a fit-n-flare.

    Ok the top one I like but it just looks like its going to give you trouble as soon as you put it on and I dont like that ring around the bottom. I always love David Bridal ideas but when you put their dresses on nine times out of ten you just want to kill them. 

     

    I dont like how high the Mori Lee comes up on you. It should sit lower and cos its so close it looks uhhhh … but it is the better of the two IMO

    I think you should try some different silhouettes.  Maybe instead of the mermaid, try a fitted, drop waist dress with a full skirt.  I think it would show your curves while being very figure flattering and beautiful.

    I’m not sold on either dress, although as a dress I prefer the lace. I agree with others that you should try some other silhouettes. If you like mermaids, maybe try a soft trumpet or modified mermaid for a softer flare of the skirt.
