I actually think the a line is more figure flattering. Much much more so. If you really plan on toning and losing weight (I dont want to sound rude or mean I’m sorry) but be realistic about your weight loss goals, because of right now I personally dont like the mermaid on you 🙁

Oh ok! Well, 1. You dont look “gross” but the dress does look small, thats where I was coming from so yay! 2. Sorry about your back 🙁 lol 3. Now you have a true dilemma,myour Fiance doesnt like mermaids, you dodnt have the moment but everyone else likes it on you…. Honestly with that I would go with the a line because of that. If you want to add more bling why dont you add a sash?

i think some of what we are seeing in your pictures is the angle it is shot at, personally.


I dont have a perfect body by any means, and I always worried about my belly pooch in the mermaids (and now in my dropped waist ball gown lol) The only way to get around that is to go with an A line, a higher waist ball gown, OR….for about 6 weeks before the wedding date make sure you eat an immaculate diet (clean eating, no junk watch your sodium, wheat etc)


If your other dress is two sizes too small thats a lot of pressure I think. 🙁

I dont think the mermaid looks bad honestly, again I think its camera angle somewhat.

I love the a line dress on you a lot more, not to mention I think you love it more!

I love love love the A-Line on you. It looks more comfortable, makes your waist look TINY, and feels classy/romantic. The mermaid is gorgeous too, more of a sexy vibe though.  


I went to Davids in November hoping for an A-Line but left with a column gown. (How does this hapen?!) I just exchanged it last week for the A-Line shape my heart was set on. Good thing is that you have time to think about it and try on both in the store back to back.

I think both gowns look good on you, but my personal preference would be for the A line. Mermaid silhouettes are super popular right now, so I don’t think that the A line is necessarily more “predictable”.


If you wanted more decoration on the bodice of the A line, did you try this style on?





This is a style that I tried on. It reminds me a lot of your A line except with a fancier bodice.

I prefer the second dress. I think once that fabric around the midsection is altered, it will be much more flattering.

The beading on the bust is beautiful!

The second, hands down.

#1: looks like a melting cupcake (it looks like dress has tiny fat rolls). Though the bodice is doing wonderful things for your waist.

#2: BUT your boobs look amazing in that second dress (keep the bra! keep the bra!), and with some altering, that ruched bodice and windswept skirt will make you a showstopper.

Reallyyyy love the A-line on you! It’s flowy and beautiful and soft and sweet.

The mermaid is nice. But I don’t think it’s anything very special….

I love the fitted one. The beading on the bust has a vintage feel. It’s different, it’s a wow dress. The A-line looks nice on you but it’s very “typical”.

@Beeloved86:  I prefer the second because it has some pretty beading and I love the shape of it. I like my dresses sparkly and girly, so if you were to get the first one I personally would add a sash. Maybe you could try on a couple more?
