Do you have a pic of your dress?  Better yet, do you have a pic of you in your dress?

@msjujubeans:  Thanks for the pic. : ) With your dress I say no sash.  The bodice of your dress is shorter than the bodice of the first dress you showed us.  The ruffly fabric (I’m not sure what to call it, sorry) on your dress starts at the top of your hip but starts at the middle of the model’s hip because the bodice of that dress is longer.  I think it is called a drop waist.  There is hardly any bodice below your lavendar sash in the front and no bodice below your lavendar sash in the back.  (I would have that same look in the back of my dress, lol!)  Plus, the sash will compete with the ruffly bottom of the dress, especially in the back.  The ruffly bottom is what is supposed to make the statement.  Definitely no sash with that dress.  I disagree that something would be missing.  The sash would be too much.  If you are concerned about your stomach try Spanx or something of the sort.  And By The Way, your size doesn’t matter.  The dress will be made to fit your measurements.  No worries!

I love the sash, especially if it makes you more comfortable. I’d go for it. In the model pic, the sash looks like it’s tied right at the top of the ruffly skirt part, so none of the bodice shows below the sash. I think that’s how I’d wear it, too…otherwise, with the bodice part broken in 2 by the sash, there’s too much going on.

@2ndtime:  I agree with stillme.  If you love the sash, wear the sash.  Like stillme suggested, make sure it is right at the top of the ruffly part where it meets the bodice of the dress.  Maybe a seamstress can somehow connect the sash to that specific part of the dress so that it doesn’t ride up.  If any part of the bodice shows below the sash it will look broken up and like there is too much going on. 

ETA:  Maybe the dress you tried on needs to be pulled up a little higher.  In the last pic the ruffles start at the natural waist of the model.  Maybe that is why there was bodice showing below the sash when you tried on the dress.
