    I don’t know that it’d be the most flattering. I don’t even think it’s that flattering on the model.

    The ruffle seems to make the waist/hips appear wider rather than narrower.

    Depending on how it looks on, maybe it’d work. But I don’t know how flattering it would be.

    @KatNYC2011: Agreed.  I don’t think it is flattering on the model at all.  It totally makes her appear to have no waist.  It would probably only look good on someone small with extreme curves like Kim Kardashian, if that.

    I don’t know.  I’m just not a fan of it.  I don’t like how it pulls across the model’s legs……looks tight, kind of.  But if it works for you, it’s cute!!!  I could see it with yellow accessories……

    Honestly, I would look for something similar to it.

    I think it’s a worth a try to see if it works for your body.  I think it definitely has a NYC vibe to it.

    @basketballwifetobe: Not saying you were.  There are very few people who can wear a dress exactly like that one.. and it wouldn’t be me, either.  I only speculated someone with a very tiny waist and bigger hips could get by with it since the ruffle really takes away the image of a waist in the first place.

    Keep looking, I’m sure you can find a similar silhouette without the added bulk around the waist.

    Love the top, love the skirt, but the peplum is going to hit at an awkward spot for most people.
