I totally agree, mermaid dresses look awsome on a curvy frame.  When my day comes I’m thinking that will be the style of my choosing!!

Here are some more dresses on girls with curves (some of these women have already been posted but the still look amazing).

I’m a size 4, but I am proportionally curvy. I have to say that curves are the only way to rock a mermaid or trumpet gown. That’s what they’re made for and why we find them so beautiful. Curves are awesome. Size means nothing. Rock the dress you want ladies!

Wow! Thanks for posting all the gorgeous pictures! I’m almost inclined to forward this whole thread to the friend that responded, “How do you like form fitted dresses on you?” while referring to a princess cut dress I loved!!! But I’ll fight the urge, she’s not a stick-figure herself and it’s her issues, not mine – plus I want to continue to freely post here Laughing

Rock that dress Diva! Show em how goddesses are made Wink

The dresses that are posted here are beautiful and I agree, a trumpet dress looks best with curves. Wish I had some curves like that!

@Diva The thing is, she never saw it on me, we’re long distance so it was her response to an email with a picture of the dress. Needless to say, I won’t be asking her any fashion tips anymore. But I’m not taking it personally anymore, turns out she just wanted to have things her way, sounds weird but oh well.

Have I mentioned how gorgeous those women are? Smile

As PP mention, I LOVE this thread! I wish I had read it before I went dress shopping.  I bought a sheath that ends up looking mermaidy because of my curves.  I love it, and I never thought I’d buy a dress like it since I’m a 10-14.  I’m so glad I did!  The only person who knew I’d steer away from the A-Line dresses I was searching for was my mom who described what she thought I would wear.  I dismissed her and actually yelled at how ridiculous it was to think I’d wear a figure hugging dress.  But, mom knows best! 

Pics are in my bio (not of me, but soon enough):  http://debbieandmike.weebly.com/
