    peonypanic:  First off, you don’t have a “matronly shape”. You have a gorgeous, hourglass figure that a lot of women would kill to have!

    As far as a sash or belt… I think the dress looks great without it. However, if you do decide to add a sash, I think you should do something a little thicker, like maybe 3 inches or so. With maybe just a little bling in the front. I think a skinny belt or sash would look odd.

    I like it the way it is!  Are you wearing a slip underneath?  I have a thick waist and large hips, and the poufiness of a slip really helps balance that out (IMO).

    I think you are having the same “woman” issue a lot of us have thinking our bodies look lik hell! You look great (honestly). You have waist definition and you are not poofy.  The sweetheart is a good move–I don’t like it straight across but the change in the neckline really changes everything. I would leave it how it is.  You look beautiful.

    First off I think you look beautiful in that dress, I think you look very hour glass in the pictures, don’t be so hard on yourself. I love the dress alone…but now I think of it..I nice crystal belt would be ok….but you have to try it on…too much sparkle can actually make you look wider…since it catches the light and shines back….but the right one will definetly work…..

    You look gorgeous in this dress! Definitely hourglass.  I think a sash would look beautiful with your dress!

    peonypanic:  The bulky parts? your FMIL needs to shush. There is nothing bulky about you. You look awesome in your dress. It’s very flaterring on you. I would add a thin belt\sash to break it up though. I would go with something thin and eye catching\blingy 😉

    I think the “bulky parts” on you look kind of adorable. Your dress looks really nice on you.
