desirella : I loooove your dress!!
OP I wore a Pronovias mermaid; pics are on here somewhere if you want to see. I was totally fine, but they did leave a bit of room around the knees so I could sit that wasn’t there during the initial purchase when they clamp you up. But I still loved the look 🙂

EFred611 : your dress is actually a fit and flare, not a mermaid (: as i was telling OP, the place where the flare begins makes a huge difference ot comfort/moveability. a mermaid has a dramatic flare from the knee. a fit and flare is a dramatic flare from the thigh.

I loved my mermaid dress! I did have to order a size up, and then have the top fitted to correctly fit my hips and waist. There was some extra material, but that to be there for movement. I loved it though and felt fine!

I absolutely hate being restricted in any way. Well, stupid me wanted a mermaid so I tried one on and ended up having a panic attack in the dress and just repeating “get it off” and almost crying. I probably freaked out the person helping us probably thought I was high strung but I didn’t think it would affect me the way it did. I then tried on any style I could and decided on an a-line, bordering fit and flare.

I wore a mermaid dress and I wore it for the fashion not for the comfort. I wouldn’t say it was uncomfortable but it wasnt something I could drop it like its hot in! I was very bloated the day of my wedding and my dress that had fit perfectly in the fittting 5 days before was a bit tight. Going up stairs required me to lift my dress a bit and I couldn’t pick up anything off the floor but I would consider that a minor inconvenience. I was able to sit but I did not sit the same way I would in regular clothes. Here is a pic of the Dress and me sitting in the dress. As you can see excellent posture is a must and you need to stay on the edge of the chair
