Would this be suitable for a very close family baptism??

I love the dress, it suits my budget and I would wear it again, just not sure if it is too "workwear" for a baptism?

i think its a little bit va va voom for a church and you maybe should cover the back with something for the church. if you are very slim rather than curvy it might be ok.

I think it would be fine.

I agree with Fuckwittery, I think it's too sexy for a baptism.

Very decent from the front, would probably go with a cardigan/jacket looking at the back.

Thanks for the superfast responses! I have a jacket that would go nicely with it, am a size 10/12 so hoping it looks ok on, just wanted to check suitability before I go ahead and order it smile

X-posts! Will have another look for something similar but without the low back!

I think it's fine, wear a thin black belt and a little black fitted blazer, lose the stripper shoes, pink belt and pout and it'll be fine! It's a nice dress, just styled very tartily on the website I think.

Thanks for the tips! I have some low heeled black shoes and a black blazer so will try it and see how it looks, definitely won't be as sultry on me wink
