I think its stunning! I see what you mean about it being a little big for your small frame BUT i think with a little less puffiness from the giant slip it will look wonderful and perfect!

Personally, I love it on you. I think the bodice ends at just the right spot on you, showing off your great figure! And I don’t think it’s too poofy, but if you do, go try it on with different petticoats till you love it. There’s nothing wrong with that!

It has everything you want all in one girl! It’s got a big skirt like a ball gown but a drop-waist to show off the curves like a mermaid or fit and flare would…best of both worlds! Stunning choice!

You look beautiful! I agree that this dress has the best of both worlds. A little bit of poof and a fitted bodice. I don’t think it swallows you up at all. You look like a bride!

You look FANTASTIC! the top part is tight and very flattering. Go with your instinct. EVERYONE has dress regret a little! Totally normal.

I think the dress is beautiful and very flattering on your frame!  Maybe a smaller slip if you feel like it’s overpowering you?

 I think you have exactly the lovely, tall, graceful figure to pull off a look like this…and I don’t really think it looks too poofy, even with the fuller slip. Maybe try it with the smaller slips to see if it hangs the way you want, but don’t be afraid to go ahead and wear the big slip if it seems to work best that way.


One thing I really like about Maggie Sottero and Sottero and Midgley dresses is that they almost always seem to be well-balanced. If there’s a poofy skirt, then there’s enough detail on the top to draw the eye and make the whole dress look just right. Your dress is GORGEOUS, and it looks FABULOUS on you. You made a great choice!

I’m all for mermaid dresses if you have a great figure. Why not show it off in the most important dress you’ll ever wear?!
