@KMsBride: I’m the same bust size!  I’m only 5’4″ (on a good day) and slim, as well, but empire waists don’t usually look THAT good on me.  I mean, they aren’t TERRIBLE on me, but I’ve got an hourglass shape, so I usually try to showcase my waistline.  I’ve heard that those who are really tall (but with big busts) can pull any shape off.

It all depends on you and your tastes!  If you really like that look then go for it!  Show a picture of the dress!

I think it really depends on your height.  Short busty women will likely have more of an issue than tall busty women, but it’s also going to depend on your overall build.  Have you tried on other empire-waisted things and liked them?

I am busty and love the look of them but everyone I tried on looked me look huge. You will probably be like me and need somthing that shows you have a waist.

I think the issue ends up being busty women (shorter especially) in empire waisted dresses often get the “are you pregnant” questions and glances. For some reason the empire waist alters proportions making us ladies look heavier in the middle.

I guess it depends on the fabric. The more flowy like chiffon the more apt you are to looking heavier in the middle.

@KMsBride: Well that’s not really a true empire waist (to me)!  I think that could be very flattering!  I’d just make sure to have the bust and the waist tighter fitting

ETA: yes it’s gorg!

That’s a beautiful dress! If you aren’t sure about the waist though you could try googling my dress whIch is Maggie Sottero Clarice. Sorry I don’t have a pic on my phone to upload. It was the only chiffon, kind of beachy wedding dress I tried on that had a defined waist.
