    Bite the bullet and buy it! It's ONLY $350

    No way! Put that $350 to a dress you can try first!

    If you don’t love it when it gets here just resale it.

    $350 is very cheap but no, I wouldn’t buy any dress that I couldnt try first. Is there any way you can try it on elsewhere first? I’d do that first. I tried my dress on at the very beginning of dress shopping but didn’t buy it as it was $1200 there. Months later I found it for $200! I’m glad for the deal but I would never buy a dress before trying it on because I saw a million gorgeous gowns that didn’t look half as awesome on.

    Just my thoughts but good luck on your decision!

    What if you take the risk and it DOES fit! It may even be perfect! For $350 I think it’s a worthwhile risk to take and ifit’s all wrong you can probably recoup that money by on selling it.

    Mermaid dresses look great on short girls. It’s gorgeous, and if it’s exactly what you want I would totally buy it

    $350 is a steal for a dress like that but I would definitely need to try it on or try on something very similar. Even if it is a different designer try on one that looks like it and has the same shape and fit. Then try on the designer to see what size you are. Look for a store near you to see if they have anything you can try on.

    I think it’s definitely worth the $350, but I’m not keen on spending so much sight unseen so I feel your pain.  You should try and find it in a local salon to try it on.  I think it’s a still a pretty popular dress based on the number of bees I’ve seen with it.  I tried it on in 2 salons last fall, and I’m only 5’1ish, and it definitely didn’t feel like it was swallowing me up.

    Paleta28:  Buy it and if it sadly doesn’t fit then sell it on. No brainer as far as I am concerned! Go for it!
