I think if all your BMs are more on the slender side, it is ok.  Personally, i don’t love the style and it would be unflattering on my body type (i am very curvy).  Is the belt optional?

@MrsRevolutionize:  I’m pretty tall and slim, and dresses like that make me look super skinny, in a really awful way. The opposite of what PP said, i think you need a bit of curves to pull it off. But if it works for all your BMs, I think it’s a beautiful dress, and a great price!

The silhouette is great and very re-wearable, but having the extra bulky fabric pleating at the neckline is not very flattering. Could you find the same silhouette of dress in a v-neck or scoop neck without the pleating at the top?

Super adorable!  I love it!  I also think A-line styles are the most universally flattering on different body shapes, so I think the shape will be fine.

@MrsRevolutionize:  Not fond of the skinny belt but i think a wider sash might look better.  Maybe it is the neckline that is throwing me off.  I really prefer a lower scoop or v neckline.  If you love it – go for it!!!!

@MrsRevolutionize:  Please- no sash! None of us wear sashes in ordinary life, yet somehow many brides think a bridesmaid’s dress needs a sash.

I would find a narrow belt the same color as the dress. Most people do not need to be cut in half with a colored belt.

I think it’s cute! But maybe a little informal?
