The dress isn’t even that nice. It looks cheap to me.

bibbithebee :  I tend to side eye women who see a photo on the internet and devolve immediately into mockery of other women and screaming about things being “slutty.” Yikes.

ALVstar3 :  Please remember that anyone who thinks that, because you’re wearing a particular dress that isn’t to his/her liking, s/he doesn’t have to speak to or about you respectfully or that s/he can call you/your clothes things like “slutty” is behaving in an infinitely worse manner than you ever could by wearing a dress that isn’t conservative enough for some people.

MarriedToMyWork :  Absolutely!

I’m shocked when people want to rant and rave about things that are trashy, slutty, tacky, classless, etc. Um…because degrading women based on their outward appearance is in good taste, elegant, proper and high class?

I personally don’t like the dress. But based on the body type you provided in your update I don’t think it would look too sexy for a wedding.

Nope! I think it’s fine!!! I’m wearing one very similar to yours a wedding next month! As long as you’re not spilling out the top and it has a nice fit on you…I say go for it!!

duchessfriedrich :  Yours shows no cleavage, although it has cutouts and colour in common, it’s a lot less revealing.

At my cousin’s wedding, the groom’s side went all out in fancy black see through dresses that were similar to the one in the photo except a lot flashier. We just gave them a glance but guests really didn’t care what other guests wore. It’s just like “Oh. That looks flashy” and then life goes on. 

I say where whatever you want. The focus will be on the wedding couple anyhow.

If it is formal/black tie I think it is a good choice. I wore a similar dress to a black tie wedding and it was appropriate. I’m not busty at all so a very tasteful about of cleavage was exposed. Besides that the slit only exposed my leg when walking fast or up stairs. You know your circle of friends better than anyone up here and if you think the dress would work, wear it.

sunshinenumber5 :  people can dress as tashy as they want… I personally love a bit of trashy and dont take it as an insult at all (its a lot of work/money to be trashy wink) but its not suitable for a wedding

If theres a lot of clevage and focus on the breasts when you put it on, don’t wear it. This is only really wedding appropriate for a small-chested person.
