I’m not very curvy and it gives the illusion that I actually have a waist!

They are trendy. They can add emphasis to a waistline. They add a little sparkle to an otherwise plain dress.

Personally I see a lot of people who have already very textured or ornate dresses, and those are the ones I say “no” on the sash.

@laurajayne11: i agree, sashes should usually only be added for plain dresses to add a little statment.  i know it can be easy to get carried away with accessories though. i am happy i had the bees to tone me down at one point!

I agree. Some dresses need a little extra something, but for others they are better as is.

I added a sash to mine because it is really plain. No beading or lace, and like a PP said it creates the illusion of a smaller waist. I chose a red broached sash as a statement piece for the dress. The thing I loved most about my dress was also the thing that I liked least. It was very simple and I felt it needed a little something.

 

But, I have seen beautifully ornate dresses that included these bold sashes with HUGE flowers on them. Personally I am a simple girl, with a simple style and could NEVER pull it off.

I think a lot of people add them because it accentuates their shape and makes your waist look tiny.

It is no different than extra ruffles, beading, lace, jewelry, bouquets. People like it.
