    @Burtongirl:  I say no sash at all or the sparkly belt. The ribbon one makes your waist look wider.

    Love the color the ribbon adds to the gown.

    @Burtongirl:  I have to agree with @MlleFabuleux:.  You obviously have a fantastic figure, but the satin ribbon doesn’t do it justice.

    Your dress is beautiful, by the way!

    @MlleFabuleux:  I think maybe that pic is just cropped closer and a bit larger? 

    I actually like the ribbon more because I think the blingy belt kind of fades away into the dress.

    @Burtongirl:  The dress itself is already gorgeous but the sparkly belt makes it that much more! 🙂

    @sleepyhead22:  Nope. It is closer, but the ribbon draws a horizontal line across her waist. And drawing horizontal lines across your body widens it. On the other hand, the sparkly belt has a graduated design, which draws the eye inward by “ghosting” the sides of your waist (thus making the waist appear smaller). 

    It’s the difference between this (no) and this (yes);

    I know it seems like I am overly passionate about sashes, and that’s because…I am. LOL I’m pretty anti-sash. so, I have to acknowledge when it’s done correctly.

    My vote is for bling bling! The ribbon does make you look a bit wide (and you’re NOT at all)

    @MlleFabuleux:  yeah, I can see your point as well! I do usually like a focal point at the center of sashes. I think my only problem with the sparkly sash is that it doesn’t have enough substance so perhaps a slightly larger blingy sash would be the best of both worlds. 🙂

    @sleepyhead22:  Oh I completely understand where you’re coming from, esp. if you prefer wider sashes. Go big or go home, right? 😛 I think I like the subtle sparkle only because I prefer no sash (I know…boring). Whichever one OP chooses, though, I honestly think she’ll look fabulous with that curvaceous figure (pretty sure we’re all agreed on that :D).
