That does look a bit of a faff to me and if you are slim you might end up with a lot of excess material. They do remind me of bridesmaid dresses a bit - I think there's a made (two little birds so something) that do them from the states in a range of colours. May be worth a goggle.
I have a friend who always buys stuff like this...and she always looks like the cat has dragged her in.
Now, this particular friend finds herself very very fashionable and 'on trend'. Although, I could not disagree more about this--her self confidence and personality make up for the way she dresses. (She doesn't realize her personality is why people think she is hot/gorgeous.)
All her friends talk about how amazing she is while being the worst dresser we have ever come across.
or maybe we're the ones with the bad taste.
I did take this dress out of her wardrobe and ask her husband to burn it, who also agreed it was one of the most awful things he's ever witnessed her purchase.
She wore it to every large event last year in a different 'style'.
Saw a pantswettingly hilarious burlesque act where the woman went through hundreds of comedy clownish permutations of the 'Limitless Dress'. Even if I could get away without a bra I could no longer wear one with a straight face
