    Hey fellow Melbourne girl! (okay, I don’t live in Melbourne any more, but you never leave…)

    I voted for the “keep trying” option. 

    I don’t think mermaid dresses are your thing. In My Humble Opinion they look better on brides with a more obvious hourglass figure. You do have an hourglass figure, but it’s more subtle. 

    Also you have the tiniest bit of a tummy. You could fix it by wearing Spanx, but if you don’t want to do that (fair enough) then I think you should look for dresses that either don’t fit too tightly on the tummy, or have detailing on them to obscure it. Dresses that are shiny and plain over the tummy area (like #1 and #2) won’t be your friend, but ones that have lace or other detail over the tummy will be more flattering – like dresses 3, 4 and 5.

    So I would be advising you to look for slim a-lines or fit and flares. Or maybe trumpet dresses with draping/rouching – these will also emphasise the curves in the right places. 

    I like #3 the best because it has that soft draping and detail on the abdomen area, and emphasises the hourglass figure the best especially with the belt. But I would still like to see how you look in a different style.

    I kind of like dress 5, but the seams bug me and it looks too heavy.  I think you should try on a fit and flare.

    I’m not sure that I love these shapes on your body. I also dont love the deeper sweethearts. I do agree that the Enzoani Casablanca looks best followed by #4 but I voted for none.

    @clairebbbear:  I totally agree with this. It says everything that I was thinking.

    Enzoani!!!  I am biased (my dress is enzoani too) but they are gorgeous, flattering, and COMFY!!!  The details on dress 3 are more put together than your other choices, I feel.  They are all lovely but something about dress 3 feels more elegant and detailed!

    @zoecn:  there are a lot of different definitions of fit and flare out there. I generally use it to describe a dress that flares out from between the hip or upper thigh area, a mermaid flares out more dramatically from the knee or lower thigh area, and a trumpet flares out gradually from the thigh.

    For me, your dress #1, 3 and 4 are mermaids, #2 is a sheath and the last one is a trumpet. But other people would probably differ.
