    kimberleyj:  I can’t judge, it seems you mistakenly posted photos of your small frame.

    And it looks gorgeous in that dress 😛

    kimberleyj:  This is a beautiful dress and it suits you just fine. But where the heck is the ‘large frame’?? :)) You have a lovely shape, dear, learn to appreciate it.

    The dress looks fine.

    I have no idea why you think you have a large frame. Not sure if there is some body dysmorphia going on or if just hoping for people to respond as we have with the reality you are not a larger person.

    kimberleyj: 

    you look lovely in the dress but you definitely are not full figured or have a large frame.

    kimberleyj: Another vote here that the use of the term ‘large frame’ is highly inappropriate. Tut tut, lady – go to a friggin’ optometrist!

    I think the dress is gorgeous and looks great on you. I don’t think you can go wrong with it; however, since you asked for genuine opinions and you seem a little body conscious (most of us are, irrespective of how great we may look!) I think there may be a better shape out there for you. 

    I think if your hands weren’t exactly were they are in the first picture, it wouldn’t be quite as flattering. It seems like the point at which the dress really starts to flare out might be a touch too high, which may make your hips look wider than they are. 

    Here’s the bottom line though: it totally doesn’t matter. You look fantastic, and I genuinely feel there are more important things than having the absolute most flattering dress possible, especially given we’re talking about something so neglible here. If you love everything else about the dress and it makes you feel good, I reckon you should go for it. 

    ETA: You know what, I just had another look at the photos and I think I might have been way off. I think the silhouette may keep your hips and shoulders looking in perfect proportion, and it was just the fact that it makes your waist look teeny tiny that was throwing me off. It’s kind of hard to tell from that one front on pic. Anyway, it still looks great!! (Sorry for the most unhelpful post ever!).

    kimberleyj:  I get feeling super conscious, but the truth is that broad shoulders are awesome for making a waist seem even slighter, and that your body is well proportioned. 

    Don’t be mean to yourself.

    Hi! The dress looks great on you and you should definitely take it! Is it lace or beading- I can’t see? Your very nice figure suits the dress  

     Ps. I can’t tell from the photo but you might have a large frame. And there’s nothing wrong if you do. Its just bone structure. . People are implying you’re moaning about being fat but you’re just asking if this dress works on you. And it does. 🙂

    I’d kill for that figure!!!! Large my arse! So curvy and hourglass.  And the dress is killer. Love it. Beautiful.
