    The website says mine is a ballgown, so that’s what I voted, but it seems more A-line to me.  I suppose it COULD be a ballgown if I got more crinoline underneath it…

    At what point does an A-line become a ballgown anyway?

    Mine’s A-line although since it is chiffon I had to get crinoline to make it hold the A-line shape.  Otherwise it just hung right against my legs.

    Mine was an A-line tea-length dress 🙂

    If I had done with a gown-gown, though, the fit and flare was really working for me because I’m short, and it added a lot of length.

    Mermaid, which is interesting because I originally thought that mermaid was my least favorite silhouette. I love mine though, it’s a gentle sweep outward from just below my hips. It’s very flattering without looking inappropriately sexy.

    mine is a mixture between a line and empire. the waist is a little too high to be a natural waist, but a little too low to be an empire waist.

    Ball gown…I *really* wanted a mermaid but everyone hated the mermaid gowns that I loved. Plus, I found an amazing deal on a ballgown. I did just wear a mermaid gown to a black tie event that I went to recently, so I’m comforting myself with the thought that I can always get away with wearing a mermaid gown but when can I ever get away with wearing a ball gown after my wedding?!

    Mine’s a mermaid. It’s a mild flare past the knee, so it looks a little like a sheath too. 🙂
