    I love it! It’s gorgeous. Yeah it’s not super frilly and fancy, but that’s why is so beautiful, it’s a classically beautiful dress. If it was mine I’d probably use some of the money you saved from getting such an awesome deal to buy a diamonte sash to add some bling. Check out etsy for some fabulous ones. Also I love French bustles. Also also, are you wearing a petticoat in these photos?

    I agree…a sash or a statement necklace could really make it come alive!

    IT is a lovely dress and while it is plain you can easily jazz it up 

    How about a large flower pinned at the waist on the side, or a beaded belt.

    a big statement necklace would also look great, 

    I would go check out etsy.

    It is a beautiful dress.  I would not call it plain, I would call it classic and elegant.

    What kind of dress did you have in mind?

    Yeah, plus for 300 dollars, you have room in that budget to sparkle it up!

    It is a lovely dress, but the bodice doesn’t seem to be sitting quite right. Perhaps it’s just that your underwear isn’t really helping, but it seems to be dragging your bust down and not really flattering your waist. That isn’t to say that it couldn’t, but perhaps a little alteration beyond a bustle and a hem would help a lot.

    A simple sash on the waist might also help a lot, draw attention to the waist a little.

    @SpecialSundae:  agreed

    I think you may need to get the bodice taken in a bit.

    I absolutely love your dress.  And I agree with PPs – you can wear fun accessories like a statement necklace or sash to add more bling if you want.  It’s seriously so beautiful and classic!

    @Soon2bSykes:  If you take it in slightly under the bust it should help support your breasts and lift them. Even with a normal bra, the weight should be supported by the band under the bust rather than the straps.

    I’m a 34F, so I’m not too bad with tricks to support mine. 🙂

    I think it’s classic and elegant! Don’t ditch the dress! If you want more pizazz add some sparkle with a belt or necklace (or awesomely blingly heels) but you can never go wrong with simply elegant….it will last a lifetime!
