beautiful. If you have the right figure then go for it.

I think its beautiful-I had my face scrumpled up with trepidation at the discription AND the price!

Whats the occasion, I will tell you if its suitable grin

And also I think a figure exacly like the model is required to show it orf properly

Goodness, that is gorgeous, so glam.

I take it it's not for the school run?

Very striking.

Are you attending the Bafta's?

It needs a very toned and slender body to go in it - the line from the back will need to be flawless to carry it off. And I bet that fabric will show the slightest stain. <housekeepin gcats bum mouth>

Otherwise - pretty gorgeous!

lovely - colour may be unforgiving though

What is your colouring? And if I may enquire, what size will you be purchasing it in?

Finally, what's it for? [nosey]

love it, but you would need a figure so good that time itself slows down for a gawp. If you are blessed with such a figure, go for your life!

tis fab

Would be fab for an evening-y or city wedding. Rather a Liz Hurley look.

You might need some Spanx for the rear view (unless you have a rock like bottom) as it looks like it may be quite thin fabric just there.

Oh and low cut nude or gold hoes would be much more flattering than the black T bars the model is wearing.

Would look great with a sparkly hair comb and bracelet. Definitely no necklace.

Oh that is really lovely and would be a fab wedding dress!

Doyouthinktheysaurus Fri 10-Dec-10 14:14:24

Beautiful dress. Good luck with the wedding.

OOH, will you? Fab.

I think it will be a beautiful wedding dress smile

IWouldNotCouldNotWithAGoat Fri 10-Dec-10 14:29:19

AGree with minipie - calls for very delicate nude/silver/light gold shoes.

Kaloki Fri 10-Dec-10 14:30:43


It's stunning!

IWouldNotCouldNotWithAGoat Fri 10-Dec-10 14:31:49

If you find it too unforgiving, this is similar but less body-con.

Romanarama Fri 10-Dec-10 14:32:58

It's beautiful, and draping is flattering, so don't worry too much about the figure issues. I'd get some serious foundation pants to keep your bottom in check though!

Lovely dress - I wish I had somewhere to wear it so I could buy it too smile
