@rosie.jonesy.9:  I totally agree that there is a big trend right now with mermaids, trumphets, and fit-n-flare gowns. I originally had the below ballgown in mind but it made me look bigger than I really was. I also tried on trumpet and mermaid styles but they made my shape look awful as I have somewhat wide shoulders and hips so my frame just looked off with these styles as well. But I wanted sexy and princess combined. After 2 bad gown purchases (the one pictured below being one of those bad decisions) I found a fitted A-line gown and fell in love with it. I consider my fitted A-line a princess and sexy gown combined 🙂 but I wont post it on this thread since you asked for ballgowns.

I don’t have any pictures of me in mine yet as it needs to be altered, but this is my dress. It’s funny as before we went shopping my sister, who’s been a bridesmaid before, told me that she could guarantee I’d end up being surprised by what I chose, and she was so right – I really thought I wanted lace or tulle, something very floaty, then I feel in love with a satin dress which I thought was the last material I wanted! This is the True Bride w986.

I totally agree there is a fit and flare trend going on that made me reconsider my dress as well. But I love my dress and it looks better on then on the model.

LOVE my ballgown! Was going for something a little more tight-fitting and sexy, but I fell in love with a ballgown 🙂

@rosie.jonesy.9:  Actually there is a slight difference between a princess cut dress and a ball gown! A princess cut doesn’t have a waist seam to divide it and is one or three long panels in the front that flare out at the waist or hip. It’s super flattering!

I also was determined not to have a fit and flare type gown. I think they’re a little too fashionable/trendy right now and I wanted something more timeless! I’ve finally chosen my gown this week (:D) and I’m going for the Pronovias Oly:
