@ifheaven:  its not the cinoline its the fitting. Your dress is more fitted around the hips. The models dress is not fitten around the hips, you can see if you follow the line of the cross over of the fabric. Plus you are standing square to the camera, the model is not so can see more of the train of her dress making it appear more A line.

Yours looks better

i agree with chocolatelime, i think it might just be camera angles giving the illusion of different shape. if you tilt your hip and angle your body in the same pose as the model, i think your’s would also look more a-line. 

either way, i  would go with the majority in saying it looks awesome on you so stick with what you have! =)

@ifheaven:  All depends on how you want it to look.Do you want to be more A-linish or more mermaidish?

On the model it looks more modified A-line or fit and flare b/c she doesn’t have it pulled in in the thigh area like your dress is pulled back (I assume you had yours clipped in the pic?)

I think it looks better taken in the way you have it but if you are wanting your dress to look more like the model then  you will have to not take it in at the hip area/thigh if that makes sense.

I do agree with others it looks better on you and taken in the way you have it so I’d say stick with the mermaid crinoline ….the you already have one.

Why stress your self over it when it looks good as isWink

@ifheaven:  You’ve been stressing over this dress as much as I have stressed over mine!

 

It looks gorgeous on you.. but how do YOU feel? If it’s right, wear it and be happy! If not, change it.

@ifheaven:  I felt exactly like you. I just couldn’t justify spending more money on a dress.. even though I wasn’t totally sold on mine :/

I spent a little over $1000 on the DB dress, and this new one is ringing in under $400 ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t have a photo of me in it yet. I’m buying it from a private seller. She will ship it tomorrow or Friday. I’ll make my final decision when it gets here.

@ifheaven: Honestly, it’s EXACTLY what I was originally looking for. Fit to flare, no train, mostly lace, some sparkle. I can’t wait for it to arrive. She found a few stains on it, so I’m a little nervous, though ๐Ÿ˜

 

I didn’t realilze you were so short! I’m also 5’0” so I know how it feels to want to look proportional. I think the more mermaid style suits you better than the a-line. An a-line creats too much body, and may be too much dress for a smaller frame. Stick with what you have. It suits you wel! I really like it.
