The flare would be even nicer lower.. by the knee.
It would then give more length to the dress.
Think in thirds, imagine the dress in 3 chunks. From the top of the dress down to the waist, then thighs to knee, calves.
Having said that, I think you could also go for a lower flare – even lower than the knee point, if it is the same length as the top of your dress, that would still balance.
Maybe the assistant would pin it for you so you could get an idea.
You could even get away with straps (which I can’t!)
But all that is just finishing touches, of course you would still look great without any changes at all.
I’m just a closet dress designer/stylist 😉

l0ubie: The dress looks amazing on you! I had this same problem. When I put on a belt at the bridal salon I thought it looked weird but when they moved the belt up a little I felt better about it

l0ubie: I can’t really say if it’s ‘still you’ – but I really think you look beautiful in it. You have a really great hourglass figure in the dress. It also seems to fit you very well.
The dress itself looks lovely, and I’m not generally a fan of fit&flare/trumpet/mermaid gowns. I do like the bely with it, but I think I’m a sucker for a blingy belt.
