Yowza, that looks good on you! Would it be possible to find a mermaid dress in your size, just to try it out? Even if it’s not the dress you intend to buy? That way, you could take it through the motions of walking around, sitting, and dancing, just to see if it’ll be comfortable for you.

Hi J,

Love the dress, its actually very similar to mine, I have a pronovias. Those are not mermaid style, they are called trumpet style becasue they do not open under your knees.

They are more restrictive (I was super concerned cause I wore one once and could barely walk) but they are not too much because the movement usually flows from the knees. I danced in it while trying it on a second time and had no problems, as long as you are not putting your fiances knees in between yours for reggeaton ๐Ÿ˜‰

It is a very sliming style, makes you look curvy and sexy, without being too bad. and you look beautiful in it ๐Ÿ™‚

Im going to be completely honest here and i hope I dont offend you! I think that dress is cutting you in the wrong place. I think it would look soooo much better if it started flaring out a little higher and was a drop waist instead of a mermaid. I think your figure would be flattered so much better. As far as the mermaid dress goes, I like how they look in pictures and advertisement, but not in person. I always feel that if you made them fitted enough to look good you wouldnt be able to move. In pictures they are always skin tight, because the model doesnt need to sit down or move. In real life they have to leave some wiggle room and I always feel like the bride looks like her dress is baggy in the back! Thats just how I feel anyway.

First of all, love the dress on you!  It is so fitting for a beach wedding, the ruffles remind me of waves.  I think you’ll be fine with the correct size as far as walking…work it, it’s for you!

That dress is so pretty that it shouldn’t matter whether you can move in it or not ๐Ÿ˜›

You look great!  It’s the type of dress that hits all the right curves (yikes I hope I don’t sound too creepy!)
