@fresitachulita:  You are rocking that dress!

Personally, I think mermaids look so much better on woman who have a large difference between their waist and hips measurements. I posted previously about possibly having dress regret but all the pics posted here put me to shame….I’m not pear shaped and look awful compared to you lovely ladies!

@MrsDulce:  gorgeous dress! Yes, I have the jlo but thing going on from behind too. lol. no shame tho.

 

Yeah, I’d have to say mermaid looks (IMO) smashingon women with a drastic hip/waist ration. I dunno…I just think curvy girls look best when their shape is featured in a good way.

@Mrs. Bubb:  I havne’t seen your dress…but I’d like to add I think slender less “abundant” in the hip/butt area girls also look fantastic in mermaid…I always thinks it makes them look so elegant and statuesk. 

I really only think the only body type that should beware of mermaid is the apple shaped gals.

I’m a 12/14 on bottom, 8/10 on top, and my dress was a trumpet (not quite as fitted as mermaid). I’m altering it to be A-line tea length because I always wanted a shorter dress, but it looked great!

I’ll post a picture too … even though this isn’t my dress. (I don’t have one yet) I do like this sort of fit/style on me though… and there’s at least a full twelve inch difference betweeh my waist and my hips!

I think mermaids look good on women with defined waists and fuller hips.

I have big hips and I went for a type of mermaid dress.  I honestly thought I would get a princess style but it did nothing for my body shape, I had no idea I would end up with a dress like this – but it was the one!

I’d like to think that pears can pull off the mermaids! My dress is more of a fit and flare than a true mermaid but I’m a pear for sure.  (I wish my hips were only 38″!!!)

I definately think you need some curves to pull off a mermaid dress.

Hourglass.

Here is a 34-24-36 pear. I think curves are a MUST for a mermaid.

In my opinion you need curves to work a mermaid dress – so yes to all the pair shaped ladies 🙂
