I went with my friends to get an idea of what type of dresses I like and I saw one online I really liked and got to try it on. I also tried on several other dresses but out of them all I really was in love with two and was hoping to get some help narrowing it down (yes, I will be going back to try on more). Another thing is that I may very well need to buy my dress soon because my mother wants to buy it for me before she moves out of state as it would be difficult for her to come back to NY.The venue that we chose is glam ballroom style; so with that said, your feedback is appreciated in regard to pro’s and cons and the voting poll. *Sorry for the large images*

#1 is definitely the best, it’s more figure flattering and the ruffly train is really cool!

I say keep looking. Sorry but neither dress does you justice.

If you have to chose one of these two, go with the first one. It’s a much better cut on your body, but the bottom looks a bit odd to me.
The second one, cuts you impeccably wrong and makes your waist look short and honestly you look wider in the second dress because of how it cuts at your natural waist line, there’s that line there and it does nothing for you.

I had that thought about the line between the midsection as well, even if I were to get it in my size and have alterations done.

I do like the ruffle train! I know some might find it over the top but I like that it’s pretty different from all of the other ruffle mermaids I see.

I feel like if the dress were lined entirely maybe, that line wouldn’t be so present? It’s not even just you that it cuts you wrong on.
Every bride I’ve seen in a dress similar to this one, it doesn’t seem to cut them right.

The mermaid one looks great on you.

The second one is incredibly unflattering on you. #1 is nice but I think you can do better. I would keep looking.

I love how the first one looks on you!

I reaaaaally like the first one on you. It looks great on your body.
2nd one is a HARD no.

The first one – hands down – looks so much better on you.

I say keep looking – can you FaceTime your Mom or show her pictures if you keep looking at other dresses?

Dress #1 fits the glam ballroom theme to a T!

I spoke with her about sending pics and we will most likely go that route.
I’m sure I like ruffled mermaids but I want to keep an open mind and try other styles. Everyone’s feedback has been so helpful!
