I'm wobbling over my dress purchase...

I have a night out with friends tonight and on a whim this morning, picked up this dress:
http://m.newlook.com/shop/womens/dresses/black-mesh-panel-lace-trim-pencil-dress-_362015101

I'm 29, 5'9 and a 12 with 34D chest. When I tried it on, I thought it looked nice and its very slimming. But I do have a ample chest so there's a bit more to display than on the model. Will I look OK?

Where are you going? I think if it looks good on you should wear it?

EmilyPunkhurst Sat 28-Nov-15 14:13:16

If you tried it on and loved it then I say go with your instincts.

So long as the dress doesn't look strained or puckered across the bust it'll look fab.

What sort of bra will you wear?

ZaZathecat Sat 28-Nov-15 14:25:54

It will look great.

By your thread title I thought you were physically wobbling over your dress, i.e. breast overflow!

It's completely transparent at the back. Presumably if you have big boobs you aren't planning on going bra-less?? I think seeing a bra through that (and the narrower transparent big at the front), even a nude one, will ruin the look a bit.. Sorry..

Depends on your bra plans really... How does it look from the back with the bra you're planning on wearing?

If you feel good in the dress, you will look good in the dress.

Get one of those stick on bras. I like the dress, and you're the right height and size to pull it off. It wouldn't work on a 5' size 16.

It's a nice dress but won't look good with bra strap showing at the back. Do you have a bra solution?

TheUltimate Sat 28-Nov-15 16:49:46

No, I'm going braless. This is why I'm wobbling! I can post a photo of my chest in it.

TheUltimate Sat 28-Nov-15 16:51:11

Bad photo but gives you an idea.

We're just going to some local bars.

Looks fine to me smile

HappyGirlNow Sat 28-Nov-15 17:03:09

It may get a bit of attention though - how extrovert are you?? wink

EmilyPunkhurst Sat 28-Nov-15 17:05:19

In my opinion that looks fab (commenting on a cleavage picture is making me laugh a little).

Go out, have a great time, feel fantastic!

I'm 50, and without wanting to sound like your mum, I wish I'd done much more of that when I was your age and spent much less time feeling self-conscious!

SpendSpendSpend Sat 28-Nov-15 17:07:47

im 28 and i like it.

I think though that if you wear it like that without a bra then if your boobs or the top moves slightly then it wont look right at the front

TheUltimate Sat 28-Nov-15 17:28:13

Not very extrovert Happy!

I did quite a few movements in front of the mirror Spend grin It doesn't actually move too much so I'm hoping it stays put all night.

Thank you Emily smile

If you have jiggled about abit and everything seems fine then it should be ok.

Dowser Sat 28-Nov-15 19:42:04

It's a very brave person who can go out in a dress like that.

DamsonInDistress Sat 28-Nov-15 19:50:13

You look much slimmer than a 34 back tbh, have you measured according to the bra guru guide. I think it looks amazing, if you love it, go for it!

Coastingit Sat 28-Nov-15 19:51:30

Gorgeous dress! Wish I had the boobs for it. Maybe get some tit tape to hold everything in place?

ladygracie Sat 28-Nov-15 19:54:17

Looks amazing. Have a fab night.

RubberDicky Sat 28-Nov-15 19:59:34

Gorgeous dress, you look good in it. It's exactly what is have chosen before my post baby body has made me lose my confidence recently.

Have you got something you can throw over the top in case you suddenly feel too exposed?
