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...

    You look great!!

    It takes a special kind of curvy to pull it off. My curvy didnt look right in a dress like that. Yours looks fabulous!

    To be honest, I think you look amazing in that dress!

    I'd never be able to pull off a mermaid dress

    BlueHenBride is right- I think curves are way better in mermaids.

    I thought the point of the mermaid dresses was to show off curves lol your bridesmaid sounds quite ignorant. You look great!

    This dress looks wonderful on you and when it is fitted it will be even better. Sometimes mermaid style don't do much or look undefined but on you that is not an issue. Most of all you l ook happy. When you wear something with confidence that is a winner!!! Enjoy.

    I almost went with a mermaid style dress (I have a curvy body too), but I was worried I wouldn't be able to walk in one! So I have a "fit and flare" kind of dress instead!

    That dress looks very beautiful on you, it looks like it fits your body perfectly! Smiley smile

    I think you look great! I tried on a mermaid and Lord have mercy did that thing look awful on me. So no, they're not for everyone. You really do look fabulous in it though!

    I get feeling a little doubt when someone doesn't like your dress though. I showed a photo of mine to someone and she was totally underwhelmed. "Oh...it's nice..." was her response. It bothered me for a little bit until I remembered that I loved how it looked, and no one else's opinion on it really matters.

    I think it looks beautiful on you & if you feel beautiful that's all that matters! I got a very tight fitting dress and I am a curvy lady myself.

    I am curvy, pear shaped and was convinced I needed an A-line to hide any "flaws". I ended up with a fitted trumpet and love it.

    Also, less self-centered - you look phenomenal. As long as you feel beautiful, don't listen to anyone nay saying!
