although that model must be 7 feet tall as on me it's on the knee not mid-thigh.

also suitable for a wedding? with leggings or tights?

I have worn worse! Tights for a wedding. And heely old heels.

Tights and heels.

black tights or nudey ones? hold in mind my chunky calves.

Honestly? I'm not a fan of it and would worry that the fabric will be scratchy and nasty. And there are too many bright colours on there for me. It looks like it came from ASDA, sorry. That said, I like the shape and the chiffon arms.

But black opaques and heels would be what to wear it with.

But what's your budget, size etc for other suggestions?

depends on the fabric really

They have several similar dresses with the chiffon sleeves. I can't really recall seeing that one but the other two I looked at were really nice and didn't look 'Asdaey' at all.

They are quite short I'm only 5' 3" and it was above my knee in the other styles.

I can see why you'd think it could work but I don't think it would at all. It's made of polyester and so you'd get sweaty and the pattern may be pretty on silk but on polyester it just isn't.

I like the dress. Not sure about the chiffons arms because what would you do if you were chilly?

fabric is sort of stretchy shiny stuff, yet not scratchy, which i'm not mad keen on but it does hang surprisingly well. the arms are army enough to hide the bingo wings and I'm only likely to wear it once so don't want to spend £££££.
