I ordered my dress online from Norma and Lili bridal couture and its finally here. My mom took my measurements and I’m so surprised that it fits really good. Its almost perfect, I just have to get a little alterations on my hips I don’t like the way it look when I walk.
I have a question for the brides that have mermaid dress. Is it normal that is a lil bit uncomfortable when you walk? it’s hard to move my legs.

    I have a mermaid style and have a similar issue (only a little less noticeable) in the front as well. I am hoping my undergarments completely fix it! I wouldn't say it should be too hard to walk, but it is more restricting! I actually ordered shapewear in boyshorts (link below) because I didn't want my thighs to rub all day.. they are definitely not use to restriction!

    When I tried on mermaid dresses I noticed that right away. The owner of the shop told me that unfortunately that is how they are...

    Mermaid styles are more restrictive in the legs because of the shape. I think if you practice you'll get used to it. The dress is beautiful on you and I could imagine seeing that crease is irritating but I think that may be the way it is because of fit but definitely see what seamstress says.

    I have a mermaid gown and that is unfortunately going to show at least a little bit when you walk. I had my seamstress take the hip area in so it wasn't quite as noticeable and it helped but was still there.

    Such a beautiful dress! Mine is mermaid and it is (for sure) uncomfortable to walk in. I decided to order a reception dress as well so that I could enjoy myself later on.
