    Sorry, but it doesn't flatter you. Try something else.

    I love it! They're crazy.

    Meh, it's okay but I think you can do better.

    I think it’s beautiful. Of course it might look a little off. It’s not the right size. If you love it you should get it!

    Are you absolutely sure they didn’t mean hippy like peace and love hippy?  Because that’s the first vibe I got and it’s awesome.

    Maeven –

    If you add a sash, maybe something very thin with pearls (see photos) it will place emphasis on your beautiful waist–the eyes will see that tiny waist–not the hips.  The dress is beautiful and looks expensive/well-made and has a timeless vintage look.  You are a tall woman and carry it elegantly.  You have a lovely figure.  Use a simple shoe in the same tone.  

    What I don’t like is the veil.  It does not match the lace of the dress and looks a bit awkard to me.  You don’t need such a dramatic veil with that dress — the dress speaks for itself and something shorter would look better.  I feel I only see the veil and not the beautiful details of the dress.

    What matters is whether you love the dress, not whether it’s their or our taste as that is so subjective. But Honestly I think you look great in it. It’s always going to pull/sit different if it’s in the wrong size, but even then I think it really suits you 🙂

    You have a beautiful figure and a noticeable waist. I love the dress on you! But I would reconsider going with 3/4 sleeves, or at least pin them so you can see what they look like before they’re cut, as mid-length sleeves can sometimes actually make a person’s upper body look wider.

    I love it! I think its fashionable, a little different, and lovely. I also think you look great, and it’ll look even better in the right size.

    maeven :  

    I am one with  not much of a waist  too, so was prepared to agree  that a fitted dress might emphasie this . But your dress  doesn’t,   though if you could post a full frontal pic  ( sorry you know what I mean ! ) it  would  be easier to judge. 

    I think it is a beautiful  dress and I agree shortening the sleeves would be good, only not as short as elbow length, just  to a few inches above the wrist. I don’t think it needs a belt , belts have this reputation for making  waists look slimmer but they rarely do,often the opposite.

    I like the long plain  veil , it needs no embellishment , and the same , only shorter wouldl be fine   too.

    maeven :  hard to tell without seeing a full on frontal pic. But what i will say is this: you need hips to pull of fitted silhouette. I wouldn’t worry about being “hippy”. But you also need a waist, or dresses just tend to make you look like a wide column. So if you feel like you lack a waist, maybe it’s not the best silhouette. Have you compared your measurements to the size chart? Does your waist measure a lager size than your hips via the chart? I find that’s generally a good indicator.
