    My dress has a dropped waist- which I LOVE, so I voted for that one. BUT- A-line dresses look good on pretty much everyone, so that gets a secret second vote πŸ™‚

    Definitely mermaid…I just love that style. I don’t know if I’d look good in one as last time I tried on dresses there was a lot more of me…but I will sure try one on this time…just to see anyways πŸ™‚

    I’m a fan of the A-line.  Classic!!

    I voted for sheath – because trumpet wasn’t on there.  Trumpet  is between A line and Mermaid.  Love the style (and it’s my dress)!

    I LOVE pictures of trumpet dresses, but since that wasn’t an option, I picked what my dress is: drop waist!

    It is sort of mermaid, but flares more at the hip than at the knees.  It can be a better style than Mermaid for those of us with curves (ME!)

    I love the dropped waist look, when it’s simple and chic. I never found one that I loved in person (in my budget) though. Plus, I think maybe I have too much booty for a shape like that, haha, so I ended up going with an A-line that I adore.

    Mine is a trumpet skirt which is sort of a hybrid cross between a mermaid and an A line. LOVE IT!

    I like that the A-line is classic so I went with that as well as a chignon. I know that I will look at my pictures 15 years from now and still be happy with not going the trendy route. πŸ™‚

    Mine is a trumpet which isn’t up there! But I think it works on brides who want to create curves as well as on brides who want to accentuate their curves, like me =)

    I wanted a drop waist but ended up with a trumpet…Which I think is closer to a mermaid. When I think drop-waist, I think the bodice ends slightly below the natural waistline but your hips are still hidden under a full skirt. My dress flares out mid-thigh so my hips and thighs are out there in all their glory – I hope that’s a good thing!

    How could trumpet not be an option??  That’s why I voted for Other πŸ™‚  For me, I feel like mermaid dresses are more of a fad.  They’re super sexy, but can’t hold a light to the classic A-line, which will never go out of style.  But I’m just in looove with a trumpet dress’ silhouette… it’s like a softer version of the mermaid, made to really show off a woman’s shape, but not outrageously tight on the thighs πŸ™‚
