    The beaded belt is ok, but maybe a little too skinny.  I don’t think you need it.  The other two belts just don’t make sense.

    I think you actually look skinnier without anything at the waist.  I don’t see a crease!  It’s probably just an illusion but I like it best with nothing.  The big white ribbon was my choice if I had to choose, but it’s probalby 1 ply and would reveal every bump in the fabric.

    @BeeG35:  I think either the beaded sparkly belt or no belt. Not a fan of the ribbons at all, sorry.

    Your dress is GORGEOUS btw 🙂

    @BeeG35:  Maybe look on Etsy, I just think a thicker belt would look better.  But it is all about what you want and what you are comfortable with.

    Either the thin belt, if the crease bothers you, or no belt.  For what it’s worth, I can’t see the crease!  You look fabulous in that dress!!  And I think without a belt makes a slimmer line.

    I like the look of  thicker belt/sash! Gorgeous dress on you though!

    As your dress twin, I say no belt. It breaks up the flow from the chiffon to the lace 🙂

    i luv the dress as it is!  You look great!  The belts make the dress look different.  I have a lace dress as well and everyone has suggested I add some ‘bling’ in the form of a belt or an applique, but to me the dress doesn’t need anything.  If you’re adding the belt only for the crease it is unnecesary, but if you want a pop of bling I’d say the rhinestone belt.
