    I think the thinner sash looks a little out of place but I looooooove the wider sashes!

    I also like the larger sash, but you could have one or not with that dress.

    I think that not having the sash gives a much longer, more elegant line. But if you were to do a sash, definitely one of the thicker ones. The thin one, like ayquera said, looks a little out of place.

    I’m rarely a fan of an added sash. Totally agree with Zippy. Your dress is perfect just as it is!

    I’m actually wearing the same dress and I had the same thought when I went dress shopping…  and then I actually put sash with the dress.  It looked out of place.  I can’t pinpoint why, it just didn’t look like it went with the dress the way the other dresses often do.

    Let me check my computer and see if I have any…  I bought the dress awhile ago and it’s at the seamstress right now…  If I don’t, I’ll get a sash from another dress and take a pic for you to decide!!!

    If you are on the tall and thin side, I think a sash would be okay. However if you are shorter than I think the sash will break up the line of the dress and make you look stumpy (I’m super short so I notice these things more). It’s a hard call since there isn’t a picture of YOU in the dress!

    I’m so jealous!  I drooled over that dress while I was “waiting” and once I was engaged I went to try it on… and it looked terrible!  It’s an absolutely beautiful dress, but not meant for my body type at all 🙁  I’m glad to hear that others are wearing it though.

    That said, I would not add a sash.  It has a seam under the bust, and so I think adding a sash would almost create two competing waist lines.  Plus I think the cut creates a nice long line which I wouldn’t want to break up with a sash.  But that’s just my opinion.  Since it’s a DB dress, you could always go to the store and try it on again with some of those sashes they have for the mix and match bridesmaid dresses, just to get an idea of how it would look…

    That was my dress, too!  I went with no sash.  I think I don’t like sashes until there is no defined horizontal area on the dress or it’s at the actual waist.  Since this dress has that pretty Empire beading, I don’t think I’d like a second horizontal break that a sash would add. I LOVED my dress, though.  Sigh…

    I tried this dress on at Davids and I would say NO to the sash!  This dress is so great I just wouldn’t add anything else to it.

    NOt a fan of sashes, but with this dress, it actually accentuates the waist line. I say if you like the sash, do it. It is the “in” thing nowaday.
