My wonderful Maid/Matron of Honor and my fiance’s Bridesmaid or Best Man are planning a wedding shower for us at the start of June, and I am having an awful time finding a good ivory dress for the shower.
I saw this one on Pinterest the other day and liked it, and just now I found a coupon code that will bring it down to $34! Should I get it? Do you think it will look good on me? I rarely wear such light colors, so I’d love to hear your honest opinions.
Here’s the dress:
And this is me:
I’ll be whitening my teeth before the shower, too (my increased dependency on coffee is a problem!)
Thanks for your feedback bees 🙂

It has a lot of potential… but I’d still need to see it on you to be sure. I like the dress a lot, but the boob area is what’s making me hesitate. You’ve got a healthy rack ;o) and the top of that dress might make it look bigger (in a bad way). I’m torn!

I think it is gorgeous and will do nice things for your figure. I also think it is high enough on top where your “healthy rack” as tiffybear so eloquently put it (lol) won’t look bad. There really isn’t a place for the boobs to go in that dress.
If you’re willing to share, where did you find that dress, by the way?

My biggest concern would be that since the sleeves are see through, you’d have to wear a strapless bra. I personally dispise the strapless.
I think it would be incredibly flattering on you though! If you get it, show us pictures 🙂

@edub: Ah, good call on the strapless bra thing…Clear straps would work though I’d think?

@MadameTussaud: LOL! They pretty much look big no matter what, but I get what you are saying. Thanks for the input 🙂
@megz06: Thank you! The mother-friendly lack of cleavage is one of the things that is drawing me to it. And it is from the Avenue. I’ve never shopped there, so I am a bit concerned about not knowing how their sizing goes.
@pengoala: Thanks 🙂
@edub: Thank you for your feedback! I actually have found a good nude strapless bra that doesn’t feel awful (which is an accomplishment!), so I am good on that front.

Soooo I just bought this dress online at the Anthropologie sale:
$49! I might still get the first dress too though. I am having a friend party shower (Anthro dress), and the next day a family brunch shower (Avenue dress). So opinions are still welcome!
Also, I’d love to hear what you didn’t like about it if you voted against it!

I love the first one! The sleeves are so pretty and the tie belt will accentuate your waist.
