    Wtf I feel like mermaids are MADE for curvy girls. Like I'm not "curvy" enough to pull off a mermaid because I don't have HIPS.

    That dress looks gorgeous

    I had a similar issue. One type of mermaid looked awful but a different mermaid looked good on me. Depending on where it hits you. But this dress looks AMAZING on you. Don't doubt yourself. Especially if everyone else loved it.

    I don't really care for mermaid dresses and think they rarely look great on people. Yours looks awesome from the back, but isn't super flattering from the front.

    But really, if you love it and feel awesome in it, you shouldn't worry about what I or anyone else says! You are the only one that matters and should wear whatever you feel confident in.

    Seriously - this looks fantastic on you! You have a shape and that's the point of mermaid gowns! It complements your figure perfectly, as if it were made for you. Don't sweat one opinion. Everyone has different taste/style, but if you feel good then enjoy it!!
