It could be flattering... Strapless dresses look good on people with toned arms and close-set (no gap in the middle) smallish boobs. And that dress needs a pert bottom or shapewear.

Flabby arms - check
Flabby / big bottom - check
Wide set medium boobs - check

(I'm going to look a horror)

Its nice. But I'd fret about back cleavage if I wore it (size 12 with back fat)

Don't panic! You need this (which does actually pull boobs together, I have it), some spanx and do yoga planks daily between now and then. And hold your arms slightly away from your body in photos.

It's a surprisingly nice dress for bridesmaids, look on the bright side. I like it a lot, it just poses some challenges!

I really like it and it would look good on my size 6-8 DD with a nice size bust, but my other DD size 10-12 with a large bust would find it a nightmare. I understand your concerns.

It's not great but you can make the most of it with the right underwear and a very subtle fake tan.

Unforgiving I am afraid to say ....nice dress tho if you are 6 ft and. A size 8 (I am not!)
