I don’t have dress suggestions for you because my research was mostly focused on beaded mermaid gowns,  but just wanted to comment on this dress.  I tried this exact dress when i was shopping for my gown, and I had the same problem with how this dress fit.  That cut off line is very distracting and unflattering,  however you look fantastic in a very pronounced mermaid shape.  I think you should not exclude mermaid dresses from your search. They are very dramatic and enhance your great body.

Marianna is very close to my maggie sahara. I think the cut is similar but sahara is said to be a fit and flair and not a mermaid. I probably didn’t help you at all here lol sorry.

This is why I was never a personal fan of the Marianne when I worked at shop that carried Maggie. I think you can definitely find something similar you just have to be willing to try stuff on and not judge on the hanger. Everything look will look much different on.

I really liked the Marianne, but I hated how there was a visible line where the bttom started and the body ended.. I ended up going with what the consultants call the ” sister dress” the Sottero & Midgley Tracey. It is very similar, but it is a fit and flare, doesn’t have as deep a neckline, and doesn’t show where the skirt starts with that visible cut-off (if you know what I’m talking about lol) I have a hoop underneath, but if you don’t wear one the bottom isn’t too full and is more of a true fit and flare. How tall are you with heels?? I am 5″7 and wearing flats and jsut needed a small amount hemmed

Oh Marianne is MY dress!!!! Can’t wait to try it again in october. I chose the blush color.

I guess it looks different on difrent body types. I think it looks beautiful on you.
