I think it looks good for a dress that’s too small – I actually think a sweetheart neckline would make it look even better, but that’s just me! 

What’s important, though, is what makes you feel beautiful. I know it’s hard when they don’t have your size to try on, so maybe try to hunt one down?

I think I would have to see it in the right size to really be sure. Right now it looks like it accentuates your tummy, which may be due to the fact it’s too small. I like the idea of the dress, though and the fact hat it gives you awesome curves. Are there any mermaid styles in your size you can try on any where?

eta: I agree wtih the idea of a sweetheart neckline!

I love the dress—I think that in the proper size–any imperfections would just disappear.  I think it’s fun!

I love the style! Very flattering and feminine, and at the same time, sassy! It gives you an hourglass look- i think a sweetheart neckline would be pretty, too! ๐Ÿ™‚


as far as the feedback from your fam goes, remember this is YOUR day, and if you love this style, go with it! You’re gorgeous, girl! Flaunt it! ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree with the sweetheart neckline!

And I have to say I’m not liking the dress on you because of the horizontal pleating. I feel like that accentuates the width. It’s like they say right, if you want to look like you ahve bigger boobs wear horizontal striping. If you want to look slimmer wear vertical stripings.

I think mermaid/trumpet CAN look good. I’m just not loving the horizontal pleating of this particular dress.

P.S. CONGRATS on all the weight loss!!!

I know what it’s like being a plus size bride… what if you got something similar to the mermaid. I know that sounds funny, but insterad of it going down to the knee… have it go to the hip, that’s what I did at least.

The dress looks great and would look even better in your size.   I wish luck with the weight loss.. it has to be exciting.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Congrats on the weight loss! I love the dress but it’s hard to tell how it will look when it doesn’t fit you properly. Right now, I don’t think it’s the most flattering of dresses, which may be because it’s too small for you. But if you really love it, then go for it! All that matters is what you think.

I think both are fab dresses and you could pull it off.  It doesn’t help that the sample was two sizes too small, but I think the right size would make all the difference.

I feel like you should look into trumpet dresses. They are a lot like a mermaid but with a less snug fit on the bottom.  I personally think you look pretty good in that dress but I do not think the ruching is helping you at all because it is creating horizontal lines.

First off, you look amazing! I don’t see “lots of hanging skin” at all. You’re beautiful! I think the dress looks great on you, but like some of the other commenters, I’d be curious to compare it to a trumpet style without the horizontal ruching. I don’t think the ruching is bad at all, I just think I might have a bit of a bias because I’m also plus size and always try to avoid horizontal stripes of any variety. At any rate, you’re so beautiful that I’m sure no matter what you pick, you’ll look great!
