On the model it looks just sexy enough. With more curves.. might be a bit risque. Lets see pics of you in it!

It’s not something I would ever wear, but if you’re comfortable in it and it fits the casualness of the rest of the day, why not?

@fap: Have you tried the dress on?

I think it will be great as long as you aren’t spilling out of the top or it doesn’t ride up too short.

The ruching on the bottom makes it more figure flattering and less sex kitten.

Personally I wouldn’t wear it. I would maybe find something a little bit more modest and little less form fitting.  It’s a good dress for a night out on the town but not really for a wedding

I agree with the first poster. I would say that if you’re bigger on top to avoid it. If you are smaller busted, I think it is fine! So, it could go either way!

It would be for me. I always feel too exposed, like I’m sitting there in my underwear, when I venture out in something that revealing and form fitting, but not everyone is like me.  If you think you might get self-conscious, maybe a great jacket would help tone it down?

I think it is great. It is your day, and even if it is on the sexier side of the line you can still rock it for a wedding.

Go for it!  Since it’s knee-length and not low-cut, I think it will show off your curves in a classy way.  Can’t wait to see pics from your big day!

I really like that dress.  I think whether it’s too risque is going to depend on two things.  The first is your chest, and it sounds like you’re not spilling out of it.  The second is where it hits your leg.  If you are tall or have a long torso, I could see it hitting mid to upper thigh which would be a little revealing, but if it hits below that point, I think you’re fine.

A lot of more traditional dresses are more form fitting through the torso and even down to the thighs, so I don’t really think it being figure-hugging is such an issue.

I think that will be very cute, and as other posters have said, as long as it contains the girls and it’s not riding too high, it should be great! You can always balance it a bit with some killer shoes, a nice, simple bracelet, and a pretty statement necklace so your neck/chest doesn’t look so open if you’re trying to avoid ‘sex kitten.’ 🙂

@fap: Firstly, I love the dress.  Just know this, I have another Nicole Miller, very similar in type, material, cut, ruching all of it.  The bottom rides up!  Just know that and be mindful.  Idk if you guys will be dancing, but I most certainly did, and hum, apparently there were some Lohen/Spears/Hilton-esque undies moments.  Soooo please just be careful!  Laughing
