ashleigh.crump:  10 US is not on the larger side. The average American woman wears between 12-14.

ashleigh.crump:  First thing – as a size 14 you’d only be plus size in the world of catwalk modelling. In the real world you’re average size.

As for empire line sheath styles, I think they’re risky for anyone, regardless of size, because they can make some girls look pregnant. On other girls they look great.

Trouble is, I’m not really sure if you can predict who they look good on. My guess is if you don’t have a prominent belly and aren’t overly busty – maybe more of an hourglass figure – you could pull it off. But I don’t think it would work if you are either top-heavy or bottom-heavy or apple-shaped.

Hi,

I’m an Australian size 10 and recently flew to Melbourne (from Sydney) to try on the Aisling dress. It was beautiful but the lace is unforgiving. I am a pear shape and it did nothing to enhance my figure.

I tried on every style of dress and combination they offer. I love the tops of the dresses, the detail is stunning. But, the skirts are unstructured and made me look incredibly large. I was disappointed because I was certain that I’d buy my dress from there, but I decided that they didn’t give me the look I was after and that I could look far better on my wedding day.

I would not recommend these designs unless you are very skinny without curves.

It is such a shame that they don’t offer more structure skirts, as the lace and beading is incredibly beautiful.

I’m sure you will find a beautiful dress.

Depending upon where you carry your weight, that dress could actually be very flattering. Empire waists (the ones that end right under your boobs) make people look taller and slimmer…unless you have tons of cleavage that is hanging out or very huge saddle-bag thighs. I would try on some similar styles in similar fabrics to get a feel for dresses like that. You might be surprised! That dress would look better on somebody with a nice back and nice arms, though.

I’m 5’2″, 140ish lbs – pear shaped. I tried on (and bought!) Amity by Anna Campbell. I wear a 4 to 6 in regular clothes, and they sized me at an XS in the dress. It fit and looked okay, but I’m definitely going to amp up my healthy eating and workouts to get more toned to feel more comfortable in the dress, at least the ones I tried on were not very forgiving.

I have an Anna Campbell dres (Sophia). I posted in this forum just then if you want to look at pics.

 

What’s great about them is that the waist is elasticised, but no one would know because the sash  wraps around it. I was a size 14 (AUS) when I bought mine, I’m now a 12 and it still fits (It’s an XS)

 

I hope you find the dress you want – Anna Campbell is amazing.
