I really like the dress on you honestly, it’s very classy and I think it shows your curves nicely Without being too much. The belt helps a lot too!

I think it looks great! My only concern would be the pulling in the front.

If you’re still concerned, you could try some shapewear.  I got Rago and LOVED them.  Very comfy and did the job well.

I think the dress is extremely flattering.


Have you got any shapewear to smooth it out? Its amazing what a difference shapewear can make.


Regardless, it really does look beautiful on you.

You look absolutely beautiful!!

I understand that if you don’t feel comfortable or confident in your dress then you won’t be happy- can you talk to your seamstress and get any alterations to make you feel better? (Not that i think you need any at all!!)

Best of luck 🙂

Agree with others about shapewear for smoothing  purposes. Also, might a  petticoat  give the  bottom of the  dress a bit of  extra poof, thus more balance ? 

 It does look lovely  as it is.  However , I think you are standing   in a way that  suggests  your  anxiety. Plus size you may (just )  be, but  you are plus in the best possible way  – hourglass !! Embrace it , as did the fabled Marilyn Monroe , whose body was  very similar to yours!

I think it’s beautiful I love the lace straps, but I agree shapewear would help  and a petticoat for more fullness to the skirt would make a big difference.

Your dress is beautiful! I think its just pulling a bit  in your groin  area.  I agree with pp regarding shapewear. It would smooth the lines a little bit
