I think it’s a lovely dress.. the sleeves look a little out of place on it to me, though.

I think the dress looks fantastic on you and shows off yiur curves beautifully! I’m not loving the sleeves because they seems a bit too flowy and an odd length. I think if some of the sleeve was cut off and maybe more fitted to your arm it would be perfect!

@Akeru:  Very pretty dress and really suits your figure! I agree with a PP though that the sleeves look out of place with it and don’t seem to ‘go’.

@Akeru:  I like it a lot! And unlike the others, I’m kinda digging the sleeves 🙂

I’m going to be completely honest – I’m not a fan, sorry!

I think you could find a dress with similar details that doesn’t need a lot of alterations. You have a nice balanced shape and would suit a more simple fitted mermaid/trumpet.

Have you tried many other styles?

I love it! It suits you so well. I like the sleeves, but they might look better shortened slightly

I love the sleeves! However I am not a fan of the line between where the bodice/fitted part ends and the pouff begins, how it’s on an angle. I think it would look better if that was straight, or if you had more of an a-line style. I think the sleeves would suit a more delicate flowy fabric on a dress as well as opposed to the form fitting satin that one is.

@Akeru:  Keep this as an option but maybe keep looking to see if you find something you like better?  It does flatter your figure but I’m not crazy about the sleeves. However, if this is a sample dress, perhaps it’s more an issue of alterations.

Bottom line – do you love it? If yes, get it. If not or you’re unsure, keep looking for a bit. You can always go back to it.

Although your figure looks beautiful in this dress i honestly think there will be a better dress out there for you.This is my opinion based on the dress NOT you  🙂
