    It looks very bridal to me, but I dont hate it. Although, it would look terrible on me. I have big hips and I think that would be very unflattering on my body shape.

    I definitely don’t hate it. I think it’s pretty! But to me it doesn’t look like a bridesmaid dress…it looks more like a wedding dress.

    I voted No, I wouldn’t hate it. Would I be overjoyed? No, because it’s not my style. However, as a bridesmaid, I think all you can really ask is that the bride not choose anything that’s too expensive or that’s really super ugly. If you do have a bride that lets you pick your own dress, then great! But in most cases, the bride will want to choose, and she may pick something that just isn’t your taste.

    I think it is a very pretty dress in the advertised colors…but I also think it could go wrong very fast…it would have to be worn by someone with a figure for that kind of thing and the color would have to be carefully selected so it doesnt look like a disaster. But I really do think it’s pretty. I like the touch of lace at the top to soften the stiffness of satin.

    I’d really hate wearing it because I’m very busty and would be worried about the exposure and lack of support.  However if your BMs are on the flater side it could work.

    I don’t hate it but I don’t love it. The lace and mermaid shape is what makes it “bridal” to me. It doesn’t seem appropriate for August either (satin = sweat to death).

    I probably would hate it a little… sorry. Not because it isn’t pretty, just because it would look terrible on me. I’m 5’5″ size 18 with Dirty Delete boobs. = mermaid dress would look ridiculous on me. Plus the back looks too low to wear any kind of normal strapless bra and going braless would not be an option so I’d end up having to find some kind of magical low-back bra that was tough enough to stand up to Dirty Delete boobs. 

    But….. thats just my specific situation. If all of your girls are tall and thin with small boobs then I think its fine.

    I don’t know it just rubs me the wrong way with the sleeves or something, sorry.

    Honestly? Unless all of your girls are model size, that dress is not going to look good on all shapes. I don’t know. I’m just not impressed with that dress, BUT it’s not my wedding and I’m not in it!

    I will say that it matches your dress though!
