Hmmmmm. It looks gorgeous on her….but I’m a busty lady also and I can imagine that it WOULD look preggo on me. It’s almost not slim enough right under the bust, and judging by how much pleating is there, I’d say it’ll do the lovely poof.

Don’t mean to be a debbie downer. My first inclination would be that it wouldn’t look as good on me, though, either =(

Yeah, those high waists do absolutely zero for my body. I’m not very big in the chest but I’ve got a Beyonce booty, and the tent-like effect of those skirts totally hides the fact that I’ve got a slim back and legs.

Nordstrom’s got a great and easy return policy — why don’t you order it and try it on?

Yup, and I wrote a whole post about it.  That’s just the kind of dress stalker I am.  There are more photos on the photographer’s blog that I linked to. 🙂

Is It Just Me?

edit: and I have photos of a few of my bridesmaids…but PM me for those.  I don’t think they’d want themselves on the internet….

You know, I feel better when I try it on though and go "Yup i look preggo" so I don’t feel tempted to buy it anymore…and it’s funny when the saleslady is trying to sell me the dress and goes, "oh you look lovely!" when in fact I know better. Anthropologie has lots of these dresses that i simply cannot wear but can admire.

Maxi dresses are another no-no for us, too.

Amysue is right–Nordstrom has an AWESOME policy.

Hmm they do look awfully lovely on those girls though! Maybe it’s not as stiff as it looks in the Nordstrom pic.

I love rich purples
