    Well your dress has a lot of detail and visual interest (which mine does too I think) and a lot of people said no belt on mine, but I voted yes just because I love sashes on wedding gowns. It helps define the waist and they just add that extra something thatbmskes it YOURS. It all depends on your preference though 🙂 there are people who love sashes and those who don’t so I’d do what you love 🙂

    Although pretty much NO ONE likes my belt, I am still wearing it because I love it anyways 🙂 lol

    Def belt. Helps give you a waist & breaks up the dress some (in a good way)

    Yes to the belt! It defines your waist and emphasizes your great figure.

    Belt is a must IMO

    Yes belt – it almost echoes the trim above where the skirt flares, and defines your waist beautifully – show it off! What’s the dress? I’m really liking the design in general.

    I voted sash, definitely. I think it finishes off your dress, and as a pp said almost echoes the detailing at the bottom of your dress. x

    Definitely no! You’ve already got a band around your hips and another one at the bust. It breaks up your body too much.

    Yes to a belt as it does define your small waist, but not this belt. It’s too similar to the band at your hips IMO. I would go with one that’s a different shape, one that tapers off on the ends.

    srarmstr:  I voted no belt, because I think it breaks up your body into too many pieces. The dress already has a horizontal “line” where the bodice ends and the skirt starts, so I think I belt competes with that detailing. I also like the simpler lines that the dress has without the belt. Your waist is already obviously tiny, and the dress already had enough detailing and bling that a belt doesn’t add much for me. It doesn’t take away a lot either, but I think the first photo is less busy and more visually appealing than the second IMO.

    Def NO belt! You already have a band around your hips and adding the belt divides you up into 3 sections.

    I voted no belt. You have have beautiful shape and the dress is structured well to show it off aldready.

    It looks good both ways but I think I prefer no belt a little more. The dress has enough sparkle on it’s own you don’t need it for that and I think the belt kind of takes away from the dress. And it hides your waist. Your so thin the dress shows off your curves better without it.
