@MrsD2Be:  typically with these dresses, it seems if you’re skinny, underweight or bony they will still work.  If you’re like me, and have a bit of a belly, it doesn’t look great.

I wore a silk sheath and do not have a perfect body but they’re certainly not very forgiving…

@MrsD2Be:  oh that’s a David Fielden dress! my dress is by him too, and i love it – i actually tried this one on too and loved it nearly just as much, it was a toss up between the two. i’m very petite (4’11”), not skinny by any means but regular/fairly slim for my height. my dress is also a silk sheath and while it’s not corseted or a “sucks you in” dress, it was very flattering and my friends thought it looked great. so i would definitely try it on.

What the “perfect” body lacks…good undergarments create…be bold!

The way the waist is for dresses like these really accentuates the hourglass, so they’re actually good for really thin women who may need a little help in that department. 🙂

It’s if you have a bit of a paunch (like I do) when those sheath dresses look unflattering at the torso.

Precisely what I was about to say, @Nona99! 

 

If you really want to try it, find an appropriate piece of shapewear and give it a go! You’ll never know until you try, and don’t write yourself off either Wink

 

Just remember that you will be eating and drinking and if you get bloated easily it might be worth considering if you’ll be comfy with the underwear!

@MrsD2Be:  oh of course, i read your name properly now 🙂 i would say that the material is and feels thicker than it might look on the photo – it was heavy and opaque enough to not be skintight and clingy, if you know what i mean. i think your idea is good, to try on similar styles and see how they feel!

more than a perfect body, you have to be very very very thin, on the bony side.

@MrsD2Be:  I am guessing this would look great on you! Since you’re so tiny, there is no reason to fear a clingy silky dress. The neckline might accentuate your bust area as well. win-win!

You never know until you try.  I’d say try on something like it and see.  

I’ll be honest, though; I’m 5’0 and 105 and have a small bulge in my lower abdomen that I CANNOT get rid of.  When I tried on a clingy dress like the one pictured above, it made that little bulge look HUGE to me (it probably could have been fixed with proper shapewear, but I don’t own any).  So be aware of that, but don’t let it stop you from trying them on.  You never know what will look good on you.
