BRbride2O16:  I think you look great in your dress!!! Fits beautifully and makes you look great!


I am 5’5″. I don’t know if I would call this a mermaid, I guess more of a fit and flare. I did add a hoop at the bottom to add a little bit of “oomph!” to it. Sorry for such a huge picture.

I think the best part about this style dress is it MAKES you have curves…For me, not chest or booty but I think it’s the most flattering stye I tried… I’m a size 4 with broad shoulders, b-cup, thin arms and legs… I’ll just show you….

BRbride2O16:  Well I just love the flowy one (black nail polish and all!) on you . The brooch at the waist is very big , but it is a beautiful dress and to my mind , much more flattering and bridal than the fitted one , of which there are soooo many now.

People – including  you  – look great in them, but I alwas see them as red carpet type dresses not wedding dresses somehow.

Ive had the same situation and the best thing ive found for highlighting/creating curves is putting a nice sash with the dress. A beaded sash will also look great with this dress because its all lace! Also, if you’re on the shorter side, go with a thinner sash 🙂 <br />PS: I think you look FANTASTIC in this dress!

I don’t know what you’re talking about no curves, you have distinct curves in that dress1! I tried it on and liked it a lot; it’s in the running for the YES.

You must actually be crazy. Everyone else has already said it, but that shape is great on you! See where your arms drop and that gap between your hips and bust? Definite hourglass shape going on.

Admittedly, you look quite straight up and down from the side view. That’s not necessarily a bad thing! Don’t let that deter you. The dress looks great. I think it accentuates everything that you’ve got working for you!
