Street Size 12/14, mermaid style dress - is that your situation?
Posted 24 January 2009 - 05:27 PM
I really want to see a picture of a gal (a real bride would be great) who is a street size 12/14 wearing a mermaid style dress. It's nearly impossible to do a search for it anywhere... so I thought I'd come here and see if any of you are a size 12/14 and wore a mermaid style dress and would be willing to point me in the direction of some of your pictures. Bonus points if you are 5'5-5'7.
I found a really pretty mermaid style dress and I must have it... but I am not going to actually try on dresses until September (my wedding isnt until Feb 2010) because I'm in the process of losing a bunch of weight. I just want to know that I'm not wasting my dream on a dress that likely wont look good on me.
On another note... if anyone wants to be ambitious, I bet you could make a lot of money in advertising ect (however people make money from websites) if you wanted to start a website that featured photos of real girls in dresses at varying heights/sizes/types. They have those websites that have the "virtual" girls that you can plug height/weight in to and get a virtual you... but I want a website that has real girls.
Ok, ending my weird post....

I only tried on 1 mermaid dress and i looked really hippy. But, if there is one thing I learned during dress shopping, it's that the same dress will look completely different on 2 different people.

i totally here ya !!!!
i feel the same way its hard to picture what a dress will look like on a real woman's body !!
I have seen a few girls on here in there dresses that are larger sizes and there style of dresses look awesome on them i almost want to ask them what size they are lol but i would never do it for fear of offending some one!!!

It's tough for me to know... I had lap-band surgery last August, so I'm on my way down, I just don't know what its going to look like when I get there. I'm planning on being a size 12/14 by September but people keep asking me what type of dress I am going to get... its... kinda... well... yeah. I read the "suggestions" and they say that mermaid dresses are for tall super skinny size 2 girls... but then I look at the dresses and think "it doesn't have to be that way... I bet normal girls can wear them too.
Here's the dress I am looking at:
Moonlight Valerie Couture Wedding Dresses - Style H9906 [H9906] - $990.00 : Wedding Dresses, Prom Dresses, and Designer Wedding Dresses
It's a mermaid dress, but does have an overlay, so I think it is a bit more forgiving than other mermaid dresses.

I'm a street size 12/14 and have one dress that's not really mermaid, but it's definitely fitted. I'm planning to get a second still since now I have more time and it will definitely be mermaid'esque. lol...Part of the reason why I'm looking for another one is because I think I could pull off a lil' sexier and I want this boy's jaw to drop. lol
