Does bodycon by definition

mean only for skinny minnies??

I'm looking for a dress and have a vision in mind. Something that ties in with my usual wannabe burlesque/pin-up style but is a bit more sexy than my collection of 40's/50's tea dresses and more demure pin-up style frocks.

I quite like this in a kinda Amy Winehouse at the Grammys way (hope that doesn't seem tasteless btw-I'm a huge fan and am genuinely gutted at her death sad).

The thing is as a curvy 12/14 I need more structure/sucking in than tiny wee Amy did. Do you think this dress would be flattering or would it make me look like the proverbial 10lbs of spuds in a 5lb sack?

The fact that the floral material is cotton rather than lycra is making me think it might be a bit more structured than the usual bodycon Herve Leger type of bodycon dress?

Would be planning wearing it with a wee cardie, big hair with flower in, mega eye-liner, retro heels and a really trashy but imo awesome Las Vegas necklace for a big night out smile

What say ye ladies?
