an option i’m thinking for a dress is maybe mermaid or trumpet style. I’d like the tope to be fairly simple and the bottom fairly dramatic. I just don’t want the bottom to be to tight to wear i can hardly move my legs. any ideas? any inexpensive ideas? Thanks!

Go with a trumpet if you want to dance a lot. My dress is that style and while I can move really easily, sitting down is what I have to practice lol

Mermaid will confine you just a bit more than trumpet. If you plan to dance, definitely trumpet, if not fit and flare! You’ll be more comfortable!

@pengoala: to me, fit and flare is the same as trumpet (?) correct me if I am wrong 🙂

@bump: There is a slight difference between fit-n-flare and trumpet. On fit-n-flare dresses it flares rite under the hips where trumpet dresses flare a little lower.
I’m personally of a fan of the fit-n-flare or mermaid style. My dress is mermaid style … hugs my curves nicely and I feel comfortable in it.

@TaylorKingston: I knew I wanted a mermaid or trumpet… I tried on both styles and I found the trumpets a lil easier to move in. I wound up getting a trumpet! Not sure what you are looking to spend but mori lee makes reasonably priced wedding gowns! Good luck on your search!

The only idea is go try on dresses. You will only know what you want once you do.

I LOVE trumpet (my dress is trumpet!!!). It looks glamorous and figure-flattering. I will try on MY dress for the first time in two weeks, but I know it will be a weird size before alterations. WHen I was shopping the associate told me to lift up the dress a little bit before I sit! Helped A MILLION!

I loved my dress! It was a trumpet style and I felt like an absolute dream in it. That being said, I did buy a reception dress to change into because I knew I wanted to dance, dance, dance! It worked out perfectly!

@TaylorKingston: I would recommend trumpet style rather than mermaid style. Trumpet style gowns are definitely easier to move and walk in and if you like to dance than this is the way to go!

David’s bridal has a wide variety of styles as well. I’m not sure where you’re located but you can always call local bridal salons and see which styles they carry and make sure they have a lot of different silhouttes so that you can see a broad selection as well. If they let you take photos that’s even better because you can then go home and take a look at them and see which styles look best.
