    Hi there,

    I’m wearing a fit and flare and am a street size 14, dress 16W.  It doesn’t come with a sash so I tried on a couple just to see what I liked ๐Ÿ™‚

    Honestly I think size doesn’t matter at all. You just have to try them on and you know if you like it or not. They are cuts that work on some girls and not on others regardless of size. I think they have huge potential on a plus sized woman though because the right cut on the right body really accents those curves.

    I think mermaid and trumpet can look really good on plus sized girls depending on their figure and how they carry their weight.

    If you have a good hourglass figure– a pretty defined waist –and don’t carry a lot of weight in the tummy area, mermaid can look amazing!

    I totally agree with this. Truely depends on how you carry your weight Smile

    @jackattack I am kinda in the same boat, I really want to wear a mermaid style dress but haven’t really been able to try any on in my size and am not sure how they will look on me.  So I say rock the curves and go with a mermaid/trumpet style!

    @KristenGettingMarried Who makes that dress? It is gorgeous on you!!! And By The Way I like the first sash better if you want opinions!

    Mine is a modified a-line, which similar to trumpet.  I liked this one, because I’m more pear shaped IRL, but it made me look hourglass.  I’ve lost about 10 lbs since this was taken (all in the upper body).  

    I’ve toyed with the idea of having it taken in a few inches through the hips to make it more trumpet.

    I agree, it depends on how you carry your weight!




    @KristenGotMarried:That looks gorgeous on you! I think I like the 1st sash a little better, both are great though!

    I didn’t get this dress.  But I think it’s very pretty.  Its Julietta (by mori lee) 3091.  this was my “dream dress”  But I dont know, I just didn’t that THAT feeling when I put it on… But its a beautiful dress, and I wish I had gotten that feeling, because this was my DREAM…

    Hey girl!  I don’t have a photo of me in my dress (top secret!) but I can tell you, the idea that a plus size girl can only wear an a-line is ridiculous!! If anything, logic dictates that adding volume to any amount increases the volume of the original amount! If you love the way you look in a mermaid/trumpet, then wear the hell out of one!

    I have a trumpet oleg cassini DB gown. Sometimes when I look at pictures of other girls wearing aline I wonder if I should have gone that route to play down my hips but I don’t think that would really be me, I do love my curves! I think trumpet is great for balancing out a plus sized girl. I plan on wearing some shapewear underneath to just smooth everything out. I’m a size 16, this is me wearing the sample size 14.

    have you ever heard the song, “when i’m looking good, i feel good and when i feel good, i look great!”

    it all depends on how you feel in the dress.
