    I had the same worry about dancing in my dress – but when I tried on another sample that was closer to my size I felt like I had more room to move. I ended up picking the mermaid dress that I loved! If worse comes to worse I’ll just tell Fiance not to take huge steps with me!

    The mermaid dress is gorgeous on you.  Don’t worry about the guests staring at your belly because a) they won’t, they will be looking at the joy on your face and b) that is what spanx are for!

    it’s a tough call. From an outsider’s point of view, you look really amazing in the mermaid dress, but if you don’t feel comfortable then go for the other one. I agree with changing the first dress into a sweetheart neckline (after this alteration, see if you still want to add straps or sleeves).  I like this dress as well. To make it longer you can add a bit of tulle at the bottom or lace (just to give an example check out this dress by Paloma Blanca, Style # 3966)

    I’m in the same boat! I have a trumpet dress that everyone thinks is awesome and I agree is beautiful but I feel very uncomfortable in it. Also it’s not fitting me right and is requiring extensive alterations. The second dress, I probably passed over hundreds like that one when I was first shopping, it’s not my “wow” dress, but when I wear it I don’t think about whether my waist looks thick or anything like that. Except unlike you, I am now the (not so proud) owner of both dresses!

    In your case, I really really love the mermaid and think you have nothing to worry about as far as your ass etc. That is a fabulous dress and looks fabulous on you. But that’s what everyone tells me about mine and I still bought the other one…So ultimately it has to be your decision.
