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 in it! You have the right proportions curve-wise to pull it off. I'm super hip-y and short, so even though I'm a size 4/6, mermaid styles looked horrible on me. I don't think it's about size/curves so much as proportions on curve vs. height, which you've got!! Looks beautiful.

    I think that dress is stunning, and I also think that mermaid gowns are especially beautiful on curvy women because they brings out all of the beautiful curves!

    Do you love the dress? Did it make you feel beautiful? Were you comfortable in it? Did you see yourself getting married in it? Yes? Congratulations, you picked the perfect dress!

    Also, you look spectacular in it, so there is that too.

    I love it on you. The lady that helped me pick out my dress said mermaid style is perfect for curvy women. It shows everything off in the right way Smiley smile I ended up not going with that style but I def rocked the dress I tried on!!

    I'm wearing a mermaid dress and I'm curvy. Some people frown upon that because I guess you should not look too sexy on your wedding but I feel other styles made me look bigger or too matronly. I think you look good in the dress and it'll look even better after alterations.
