Curvy girl in a mermaid dress ?

I had one of my bridesmaids tell me I shouldn't get the dress I ordered. That it wasn't flattering. My mom and 3 of my bridesmaid loved the dress on me. Feeling a little confused on if I should order a different dress . But I felt so beautiful in the dress when I tried it on. Thoughts on curvy ladies in mermaid dresses?

    I think u look beautiful. It's about how you feel in the dress. If you love it forget the 1 person who doesn't love it.

    I'll be honest, sometimes mermaid styles are just not flattering. But this looks killer on you! You look stunning and your friend should shut her fat mouth!

    At first I didn't even consider mermaid or fit and flare dresses because I didn't want to accentuate my hips and did not think they would be flattering. Eventually, I ended up trying one on because I loved the lace and I found that it was much more flattering than an A-line dress because the A-lines I thought I wanted we're adding bulk to my waist and hips, while the mermaids actually made me look slimmer.

    Your dress is flattering (especially from behind). Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    I'm very curvy and a mermaid is perfect on me! Ignore them. All that matters is you feel beautiful!

    I think it looks awesome! I tried on a mermaid & really liked it but absolutely could not walk in it lol. As long as you love it and are comfortable, that's what matters!!

    I'm curvy and I am most likely going to get a mermaid or trumpet dress. I noticed that tighter fitting dresses make me look slimmer. These "rules" aren't always correct. You look beautiful! <3

    Let me tell you about mermaid dresses that I noticed .. it's not about the size of the bride but about the shape of the body.. I've seen super skinny girls look terrible with them .. I've seen size 20 rock them well and vice versa .. I think your killing it in that dress

    Before I saw the picture I wasn't sure if I was gonna agree cuz to be honest I don't usually like mermaid dresses on curvy girls but this one really does look good on you. The off the shoulder really works for you! I LOVE it!!!
