    Yeah, you can. A dress being perfectly fitted to your size is going to make an enormous difference.

    Yes, hooray for pears 🙂 That’s going to look awesome once it’s altered for you.

    @Carlya87:  Of course you can! I feel mermaid looks best on hourglass and pear-shaped girls, and you definitely are the later. It’s lovely too!

    I tried that dress on! You can definitely rock it. ONce it’s fitted, you’ll see the difference! Order that baby hollow to hem and it’ll be proportionate to you!
