    You have a fantastic figure, so you truly will look great in either style. It’s your choice.

    However, I will say this, when I look at the first picture, I see you as a total picture of a bride.  When I look at the second one, I am drawn primarily to your hip region. As I noted, you have a beautiful shape, so that is not necessarily a bad thing. However, I think if I had to choose, I would choose the more A-line shape.

    @LilMo:  Option 2! 


    1. is too busy around your waist/hips and is adding bulk that option 2 smooths out
    2. shows off your FANtastic figure


    You might even do a mish-mash of the two and opt for a trumpet (where the flare starts higher–about mid-thigh), if you’re looking for a sleeker fit of a dropped waist but still want more of the A-line fullness.

    Option 2 gives you the perfect hourglass shape, with your hip to shoulder ratio. Option one is okay, but not quite as balanced. I can see why the PP suggested a trumpet, but I still don’t picture it being as balanced as the second option. You look beautiful!

    Add a poll! I prefer option one, but I’m just not a huge fan of the super tight and flare out at the bottom look. You look fab in both styles though so you really can’t go wrong!

    I like the first one! It has WAY more drama than the second one!

    I think option one is WAY better!

    Although, for the most part I’m not a fan of fit and flare, and I think it’s just trendy at the moment.

    @LilMo:  You’re welcome. 🙂 It is a mishmash. And after scrolling up and down about 10x, I am having an even harder time deciding which one I like best on you! 


    BUT it’s not about me AT ALL. Which style do you like best? Do you want more flare/less flare? Are you 100% comfortable showing off your body? Do you have an ultimate vision of what you’d like your dress to look like on your big day?


    So…instead of talking about “cons,” I’m going to talk about the pros of each style so that you can better determine which silhouette encompasses your style the most:

    • A-line: since yours is actually a modified A-line shape, you get the fullness of an A-line with the more fitted silhouette of a fit-and-flare; so you get the demureness of an A-line, with a touch of sexiness; your version of mod. A-line is actually a soft trumpet
    • Mermaid: really showcases the curves while still allowing for flare/softness starting around the knee; the sexiest of the three silhouettes
    • Trumpet: allows you to get more flare than the mermaid, but since it sits lower than the mod. A-line, it allows your hips to be on display, as well (the most dramatic of the three silhouettes since it combines the max. flare w/the max. figure-hugging fit)

    @LilMo:  Hahaha I completely understand because I’m confused too! I think the trumpet does give you the best of both worlds, esp. if that’s what you want. Keep us posted on what you decide (besides, I honestly don’t think you can go wrong with any of the silhouettes since your figure is so fantastic).
