@heavenslight:  I wouldn’t even worry about that. The model in the picture is young, that helps. For what it’s worth, I couldn’t picture a much older woman in it.

I think it would be really freakin’ weird if a 65 year old wore that.  It looks more like 25-35 to me

It’s a beautiful dress, lovely colour! I’m 29 and would wear it but I can’t imagine my mother ever wearing a dress like that (she’s in her sixties). If you love it, go for it!

@heavenslight:  What are you wearing it for?  It’s pretty, but I can see how it can transition across generations.  If you like it and feel great in it, that’s really all that matters 🙂

It’s classy, but I can see it being on the matronly side (sorry to go against the grain!)

I can see my grandma wearing this (she’s in her late 60s) because she’s slim figured and this dress doesn’t cling, doesn’t show any cleave, it’s long and flowy. She actually has a dress that looks just like this.

I, on the other hand, would like this dress if it tucked in more at the waist to accentuate my figure, if the the neck was a sheer lace instead of covering up all skin, if it was a bit more fitted around the butt, OR if there was a slit and some leg showed.  For me, in my late 20s, I like to pick one feature and show it off, otherwise I feel too matronly. Anything more and I feel too trashy.

For a wedding dress??? I wouldn’t even think of this as one.  But if it’s just for an occasion, it’s nice but I don’t like high necklines.
