First off, how rude!


Secondly, you look amazing in that dress!  If you love it, then it shouldn’t matter.  Yes, your mom has her vision of what you should look like.  But at the end of the day, it’s your dress and your moment.  I had the same experience with my mom (it’s A-line straight neckline gown or nothing at all) and ironically, the dress we’ve both love was a fit-and-flare sweetheart, the same style my mom wanted me to avoid because of my hips and bust!  LOL

You look amazing, your body is bangin, your mom is possibly blind or crazy. 😉

Your have a perfect hourglass figure, a defined waist, and you look great in that shape.You do not look short waisted at all.

 My mom was initally against mermad/tumpet too, because her ideas on fashion and appropriateness were … well a bit dated, as I’m sure mine will be one day. She had it in her head that only A lines were flattering. 

Get what you love, and don’t let anyone talk you out of it.

Dunno what she’s talking about…you look great. If it helps, my mom had a very vague reaction to my mermaid too….but whatever, I rocked it.  I was even kidna overweight when I bought it and it didnt’ look nearly as good on me in the bridal shop as this dress looks on you and most people would say I have THE body for mermaid dresses.

What the hell? Is your mother insane? It looks GORGEOUS on you.

And trust me – I wouldn’t say it if it wasn’t true!

@MrsPirt_2013:  I’m also really short (5’1″) with a short torso, and none of the mermaid or fit and flare dresses I tried on really worked for me.  That being said, my body is nowhere near as nice as yours!  That dress looks beautiful on your figure!  My guess is that your mom didn’t want to be “wrong.”  Either that, or she’s just not a fan of that style of dress.  If you love the gown, though, you should get it … It looks fantastic and you’ll look gorgeous on your wedding day!
