    @Love_Mittens:  I am going to be literally no help whatsoever. I like that dress, but part of me prefers bigger ruffles.

    I personally do not like all the small ruflles.  To me it makes the dress seem less elegant.

    I really like the top of the dress, but don’t like the bottom at all. If it was some nice flowy organza or something on the bottom it would be gorgeous. The ruffles are just too busy for me.

    I love the dress. I think the ruffles add “fun” to the dress:)

    You should definitely wear what you love! To me, there is something off with these ruffles…too narrow, or they almost look a bit messy? Not sure. I’m not a ruffles person, but I have seen other ruffley dresses that look great on other Bees! You have a great figure and will look fab in whatever dress you choose!

    I like ruffles, but not those ones. They are too busy, being small and horizontal, and horizontal lines rarely look good on people, except those who actually need to look wider, to give the illusion of curves. 

    By all means, ruffle away to your heart’s content. Just not with those ruffles.

    the bust is great on you, but the bottom hits you too high and the ruffles are not flattering on A-lines, in my opinion!

    You would look amazing in a fit and flare

    Like PPs, I vote no to these ruffles on this dress.

    The bodice stops at an awkward spot: too high to be a proper, flatterinng dropped waist, but too low to enhance your figure in any way. Also, the bodice and skirt look glued together with an awkward floral trim to hide the seam (and I usually adore two-tone dresses). And those ruffles…look like kitchen curtain trim (NAGL).

    So, the combination of these three big no-nos means this dress should stay in the shop. Keep looking for a better dress with ruffles, if that’s what you want. Don’t get discouraged, either πŸ™‚

    @Love_Mittens:  I actually like ruffles a lot of the time, but I really don’t like the ruffles on this dress.  The way the bodice abruptly stops and the type of ruffles just give an overall awkward look.

    I think you can find a much prettier dress that will flatter your figure.  You look like you have a great shape, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find something that looks good!

    And, honestly, if you’re not sure whether you love or hate the dress, it’s probably not the dress for you.

    It almost looks like two different dresses stitched together.

    Top looks good, bottom is awful.

    I love ruffles, but I’m not a fan of the ruffles on this particular dress I’m afraid. 

    If it helps your search, here is an example of a dress that I feel has “ruffles done right”. I’m biased though since I’m getting a reception dress with this style of ruffle. πŸ™‚
