I really like the way this dress is very fitted but then has a dramatic drop waist "poof". I tried it on yesterday and it was a great silhouette but I wasn’t crazy about the detailing. The beading at the top leaves a lot to be desired – seems like they threw on a triangle of rhinestones as an afterthought. And the lace on the upper part of the dress seems really cheap… not the kind of quality that would justify the $2400 price tag.
It seems to be hard to find this type of style. Usually, the "poofs" start closer to the waistline. What do you call this style? I don’t think it is a ballgown or mermaid or a-line, right? Modified ballgown? LOL
Ines Di Santo has a few styles but her dresses are just so darn pricey. Darn.
If you have seen anything like it, though, please share. Thanks!
P.S. This is the Piccione 452, in case anyone was wondering.

I’m not much help, but that silhouette is really beautiful! And I love the dress.

I would call it a fit and flare. I hope that helps!

i think that’s a mermaid – maybe an exagerated mermaid

That’s a dang good question. I’m also leaning toward mermaid.

One of my favorite dresses was the dress Melania Trump wore. I love that look of very fitted top with a really crazy skirt. I’ve tried on a whole lotta mermaids and it is different than the usual mermaid look because the skirt starts much higher than the knee. Mermaids flare out closer to the knee, I thought.
If I could find something similar to the Melania dress (fitwise, at least), I’d be thrilled! 🙂
Thanks for your super fast responses, ladies!

Tried on this one by Winnie Couture. You guys get the idea. I guess I like a really BIG mermaid, like elysemichelle said. LOL 🙂

I’d deem it a mermaid as well 🙂

I tried on a dress of that style and found it very difficult to walk in. I’d also call it a mermaid.

the skirt on this one isn’t as dramatic but I think it’s gorgeous. (check out the front and back by clicking alternative images)
