I say that even though that dress is beautiful, that is not a dress I can see you in. Its not a dress for your body type. Mermaid style is not made for women with curves. I tried on one and was shocked at how much bigger it made me look. Also the smooth satin shows everything, you really need to go try on dresses and find the style you like and then buy based off the type of dress that fits your body type best.
By no means do you need to lose weight but you have to feel beautiful on your wedding day and the best way to do that is find a dress that fits you and who you are.
