    @Beeloved86: They are both lovely dresses, but I think A is much more flattering to your figure.

    I like the original one (the mermaid) way more ๐Ÿ™‚  If you have the hips, flaunt them!  They’re what make women WOMEN!

    The new, a-line one is more flattering to your figure than the mermaid. And since you originally wanted an a-line and your fiance also said he doesn’t like mermaids, I think you should definitely go a-line.

    I’m going to say neither. I think the A-line shape is more flattering to your figure than the fit and flare, but I think the horizontal lines on the skirt (the pick-ups) have the effect of making you look shorter.

     

    For you, therefore, I would pick a dress with the style of the second, but the a-line silhouette of the first. Like these DB ones:

     

     

     

    The David’s Bridal Woman collecion also has a few a-lines with side draping/ruching. While their smallest sizes are 14W, you could always get it adjusted down to fit you.

    I vote the first one. The second doesnt look right for your figure.

    I prefer the original dress on you.   I don’t think it makes you look hippy at all.  Did you show him the picture of YOU in it or just an ad with a mermaid style gown?

    The first one is way more flattering and makes you look very slim! I think it’s very classy and somewhat whimsical looking! I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Beeloved86:  I think both look gorgeous! Go try that other dress on and exchange it if you like the one you originally wanted more! ๐Ÿ™‚ DO WHAT YOU WANT!

    I love the first one!  I do agree about it not showing up well in these photos.  Maybe the photographer will have some suggestions and probably a really great camera!  BEEautiful!

    I like the A line one. The mermaid is nowhere near as flattering and it is defiinitely the most important thing to get something flattering.

    I actually went to David,s bridal this weekend and dress B was one of the dresses I tried on. It was my second favourite of all the dresses I tried on. Idid not buy it because i didn’t feel like a bride and I realized I love the ruffles type. Im 5’2 too and found a few fit and flares made my hips too big as well. however dress A is my fave on you.
