I've put a bit of weight on over the last year due to stopping smoking, so I'm skinny all over apart from my belly (why does fat not distribute evenly??) Anyway, none of my 'occasion' dresses fit me any more, so I need a new dress for a wedding in June. I was looking for something floaty and came across this. What do you thonk? Too black? I'm 43 by the way, shoulder length dark hair, big boobs, slim legs, big belly as already stated. Opinions please?
I wouldn't wear black to a wedding, but I'm old fashioned. It does look more like something you'd wear for a party or night out though. Wouldn't be suitable for a church wedding, and have my doubts about weddings at other venues too.
I have a very similar dress in hot pink, from Coast, bought for an evening party. I think it's probably a bit more of an evening dress than a day one, although dressed with a jacket over it for the day part and unleashed for the evening it might work.
Personally I'd stay away from this neckline if you're on the busty size - I wore a dress like this and it didn't hang well at all. It just seemed to enhance my bust (and I have a largish belly too) so it gave no shape at all. Try something with a lower neckline and a fitted waist (if you're worried about tummy then get some Spanx). Alternatively you could hang on for all the floaty dresses to come out next season.
