    I definitely prefer it a-line, but I am not keen on mermaids or trumpets in general, so I might be biased, I think it should be possible to alter it if that’s what you want to do 🙂

    Can you just add a crinoline underneath to give it some poof?

    I think you are too skinny for trumpet.. It looks gorgous on you A-Line… Definitely add crinoline!

    I’m not big on mermaid/trumpet, but as an a-line it looks amazeballs!!!

    You look petite, and have a great figure. I think the trumpet is actually more flattering and elegant; A-line looks kind of junior/prom by comparison. I don’t know if that’s just the angle of the photos, but that’s my two cents.

    By all means, if you have your heart set on something else, go for it! But if you’re open to a new vision, you look fab in a fitted silhouette.

    I guess I am in the minority so far b/c I much prefer the trumpet instead of the A-line on you. I think that you get lost in all of the fabric and shape of the A-line. The trumpet being more fitted I feel is more flattering on you.


    PS….you should add a poll!!

    @dazlindz:  I agree with PP. Just add some A-Line crinoline underneath. Can you take it back to the charity shop and try on crinoline there? I’m sure if they have it, they’ll be happy to let you try it!


    Either way, you look gorgeous no matter what 🙂

    I think that dress is naturally an A-line with that gathered piece flaring out at the hip. A trumpet is more fitted towards the knees. Add a crinoline underneath and you will have a beautiful aline dress.

    @dazlindz:  the trumpet gives your body beautiful curves. Maybe take the dress to aDavids Bridal and try on petticoats to see if you like the extra poof. If so, bargain hunt on ebay or amazon. I got a petticoat for only $20 on ebay.

    Check out the difference a petticoat can make.
