Do you have a picture of the dress you like?  It depends on the particular cut, the material, etc.

I think bias cut looks great on curvy girls!

I guess it depends on what you mean by “curvy,” though, and how comfortable you are with your figure. Bias cuts flow beautifully; they also tend to be clingy. So if curvy = shapely, bias cuts can be wildly flattering. If “curvy” is a way of saying “I’m bigger than I’d like to be,” a bias cut might make you feel more self-conscious than you want.

Agreed.  Some people are curvy but toned.  That’d be awesome for this dress.  Personally, my extra lbs are all wobbly and wiggly.  I know I couldn’t wear that dress.  I needed major structure/boning/corsetry in my dress.

@Wenchy:  I bouhgt one.  Its sooo unforgiving.  I didnt loose the little bit of weight I wanted to so now im nervous for my sizing.  They are gorgeous dresses.  You surely need to be a confident gal to pull it off

When you go try it on, just be sportin’ the Spanx.  Trying it on will either feed the obsession with the dress or squash it.  

As for your dress: For me, the band around the ribcage would be flattering, but the clinginess right below that would be a problem.  

Have you considered lace to get the vintage look?  Or Dolly Couture?
