I think I may have found a summer dress that would be perfect for curvy ladies!

I have seen it irl and I am tempted to try it on. It has nice detailing at the back and a band of run hong at the bag which would hopefully help create some shape.

The price isn't great IMO however I you are tempted MAY15 EM if it still works will give you 20% off

Ruching and nice detailing on the hem that should be

Sorry but I think it looks like a maternity dress blush

I like that dress, saw it in store and also on DMBL40.

However, not flattering if you're large. I'm a 12 (upper end though) and it was not good on the arms and made me look a bit blob like.

I think the back detailing might make it more fitting ad less maternity

Nope, 34GG, looked enormous and preggers.

What back detailing? It just looks black to me. I'm a 12-14 and this would be hugely unflattering on me, it would make me look bigger. In fact agree with above it looks like a maternity dress. (Even the model doesn't look impressed!)

It has has a Ruching effect at the back. I have to say you all putting me off it so that's nearly £40 saved!

Its a no from me - I'm a 12-14 and that style would look awful on me.

As a size 20 38g size, I'd look like a pregnant blob in it. I tend to lean towards skater style, fit and flare dresses with capped sleeves and a scooped or v neckline.

Oh god no. Looks awful, I'd look like a sack of spuds in that.

Save your cash.

Curvy? Not my curves. (Saddlebags) I think it would suit a slim boyish figure better but it wouldn't give them much of a waist without a belt.

That would look dreadful on a curvy lady.

Are you one of those who confuses curvy with overweight? Pet hate of mine.There's a difference

I can't imagine anyone looking good in that dress: it looks like it would hide curves, not flatter them.
