I am an hourglass with a problem. I am a guest at two weddings this year that might have some conservative folk in the room. I’ve been looking for a good cocktail length dress for these events for awhile, with minimum luck. I have red hair and big boobs which mean a lot of colors and cuts are a no go for me.
This black/white number is my current favorite. With black shoes and a black cardigan…could I maybe pull it off without ruffling any feathers?

I don’t see why that would be any problem. It’s not somber enough to be seen as funeral gear & not white enough to compete with the bride.

@pinkybunny: If you were coming to my wedding, I’d think that’s fine, but I’m not too uptight about “what guests can or cannot wear.” As long as it’s tasteful, not all white or ivory, and isn’t some evening ballgown, I think it’s ok!

YES!! I might suggest a colored cardigan in the color scheme of the wedding. B/W dress can totally pull off colored cardigan which can be worn until the dancing starts. From one busty hourglass hourglass to another, I would rock totally rock this dress too!!

I think it’s fine, but you can always ask the brides to make sure.

I don’t see a problem with it

I think it’s great. I do hang pretty closely to the idea of not wearing anything white or all black to a wedding, but it really doesn’t fall into either of those rules. It’s very wedding appropriate.

I think it’s totally appropriate.

If you’re trying to please conservative wedding guests, this is not the way to go. My conservative mother would have a heart attack. If the colors were reversed, you could at least cover the white with a jacket but no.

Oh please. That dress is FINE. Go forth and wear it and have fun, girl!
