I think they’re generally slimming and waist-defining as long as they’re not too thin or too wide.

I think it depends on the sash and the gown. It could look amazing or make things look worse IMO…

I think if the sash is the right width and if the bride isn’t wearing it on top of a problem area (tummy) then it is very slimming. I have seen a few where their tummies are their problem area and instead of camoflauging, it brought more attention to it IMO. If worn right, EVERY bride can rock a sash I think.

I think that not enough ladies consider making the sash at the bust/empire waist line.  Here’s me, in my dress, with and without the crystal sash.  I think I look far slimmer with the sash because it draws the attention to my…. boobs.  Thoughts?  (I’m a size 14 if that makes any difference)

@kristen You are totally right! It immediately drew my attention upward, the overall effect is extremely slimming! If you don’t mid me asking, what dress it that? I love the style!

Thanks everyone!  I know I’m definitely doing a sash but still not sure if I’m going the crystal route or the fabric flower sash route.  Either way, a sash is definitely going at the bust line FOR SURE.  I just wanted to show what a difference a properly placed sash can make. It doesn’t always have to go on your natural waist line!

 

The dress is Alfred Angelo’s 2124.  Its kind of a matte taffeta with a small train.  $549. I freaking love it… even though the dress they delivered is the wrong color, way too big and the hemline is all effed up.  I should’ve just bought the damn sample.

BUT BEWARE, everyone else! Just because KGM has done good, you should not assume that sashes are always the solution. Plus-size or whatever-size, it is my sincere belief that sashes are one of the most overused and abused accessories in brideland. SASH WITH CAUTION, lest you look overdone.

No seriously. I do.

@Beluga:  I absolutely, positively agree with this as well.  Too many sashes are just… fluff.  Dress noise.  And some can work wonders. It really does depend on the dress itself and the body stuffing it.  😉

 

Luga have you ever seen the movie Coco Before Chanel?  I cried. Loved.
