I’m not a fan of sashes, especially colored sashes. It may draw attention to the area you’re not fond of, instead of masking it.

I think you’re dress is fine. And when in doubt, try some Spanx, regardless if you have other undergarments meant to smush and conceal.

I think I’d like to see a sash but not necessarily a watermelon coloured one.

Pretty dress btw 🙂

I personally don’t care for sashes, but maybe a white one wiith beading?  The dress looks great by itself though.

I like the idea of a sash but maybe just with bling no color!

I love sashes- a sash placed at the most narrow part of your waist can be very slimming because it draws the eye inward to your narrowest point.

That being said, I’d go with a thinner/medium width sash, and not a very wide one.

It also looks like you’ve got lots of gorgeous lace detail, and I dunno if I’d take away from that with watermelon. I personally would go for more of a champagne or oatmeal color to contrast subtly with the dress.

I think you should definitely get a sash. With that being said, don’t get one in a bright color. Instead, go for an ivory/white satin sash with beading/crystals.

Wow I love that last sash from Etsy. I think sashes are great for defining the waist.

I think a sash such as the one Mrs. Fireworks posted would look amazing with the dress!

@Mrs. Fireworks:  I second this.

I think colored sashes draw too much attention to your waist.  A simple crystal sash will help sinch your waist though. 

Beautiful dress, though

I second the idea of a white crystal sash! Your dress is beautiful BTW!
