    Looks more like a sheath than an A-line to me. I read the bit about adding tulle for a mermaid, but I would say add a crinoline if you don’t. Unless you like the sheath look, and I do think it looks nice on you as it is.

    I would do the fit and flare. I think it will look great and make the dress more unique and “special”. Then again, fit and flare is my favorite.

    Well, I think it’s actually supposed to be just as is, which would be a sheath dress (or column).  However, I think that it would look lovely as a mermaid.  It might look a little odd if you try to force an A-line.  Easier to take in on the thighs and add crinoline than to force it to come outwards overall.

    And by the way, did you buy that necklace?  It’s stunning!

    I’m pretty sure this is sort of a “sheath” dress… which is kind of like aline in the waist but then the skirt falls straight down.

    I lthink it would look great as a fit and flare if you want to spend the $$$

    I think your shape is a little lost in the sheath and as a girl with curves that my fiance loves, I suggest you do what makes you feel the most vavavoom for your groom! hehe

    Good luck!

    @mzbrownie.. so were you able to make your ‘sheath’ dress into a fit and flare? i’m wondering because there’s a dress I love also, but it’s sheath and i prefer a fit and flare. I’m worried it can’t be done, so any knowledge you have and could share would be really helpful!
