    I like the dress as is and wouldn’t make it more mermaidy but either way it will look beautiful.  It shouldn’t be too hard to shorten the train but if there is any detail or beading you may lose some of that.

    Yes do it!!! I did the same thing with my dress. My dress has verrryyy similar beading (is yours an Allure?) and I was hesitant to take it in to make it flare out more, but I’m so glad I did!

    I’m not sure if i would do that to the dress.  Would it mess the silhoutte up? Either way the dress is beautiful and you look great in it!

    Go mermaid! It looks so much more elegant and you have a great figure, why not show it off?

    I like it as is on you, but the mermaid looks good too.

    This is the first time I’ve seen a pst like this, and actually preferred the dress as-is! There is something so graceful about the way it falls, I wouldnt change it!

    @crystalrae:  You look great either way but I am leaning towards the mermaid! BTW I think the brand is Private Label and that is the dress #…when I went shopping one of the owners of a salon I went too, told me that the brand Private Label is too confusing for consumers so they will be changing their name!

    I’m not a fan of mermaid style and was prepared to check no but as soon as I saw it I thought… YES! The mermaid is super flattering on you!
