I love it on...but i keep wobbling thats its nit weddingy enough. I am a size 14 so look curvier than the model but i do half good calves. I have long hair, I am early 40s and this is my 2nd time so a small informal 'do'

Is that a clicky link now?

chosenone Mon 30-May-16 19:17:00

Oh thank you...i was just trying to re do smile

Sorry, i dont like the dipped hem look.

Buzzardbird Mon 30-May-16 19:19:07

I love it chose, do you have good arms?

It's lovely. When's your wedding? If it's autumn or winter you may feel a little cold but if summer then it's perfect.

I like it smile

I think it's beautiful. Size, age and occasion appropriate. flowers Congratulations.

I think it's gorgeous and sounds perfect for what you're going for. I had a very similar dress from little mistress for my bridesmaid dresses when I got married a few weeks ago (but in navy) and they got loads of compliments and my bridesmaids said they were so comfy to wear, and fitted lovely.

I think if you have boobs this dress might look better on you than the model. It seems like the sort of dress that you need to 'provide' the shape for - rather than the dress shaping you (if that makes sense?)

I think that dress in rogan's link above is lovely!

Cocolepew Mon 30-May-16 19:22:47

Its lovely smile

DerelictMyBalls Mon 30-May-16 19:23:27

It's lovely. I hope you have a wonderful day.

I think it's very good value.

I think the back may not be very flattering in a 14 as it's basically tight & strappy - have you checked out the back in the mirror?

I love it!

BeautifulMaudOHara Mon 30-May-16 19:27:13

It's beautiful, go for it!

Op that is a fantastic dress. I love clothes and would normally avoid any kind of asymmetrical hem but that is absolutely fab.

I love it too

chosenone Mon 30-May-16 19:41:01

Oh wow blush i am feeling relieved. My arms aren't uber toned but as a swimmer they're not too bad and i will keep working on them. There is no back bulges and have had photos done to check... i have had it a month or so and do love it but as the date gets closer i have had a few jitters. One i nearly bought was more 'conservative' but as i am quite booby a higher neck didn't look good.

Buzzardbird Mon 30-May-16 19:45:04

In that case , it sounds perfect! It's beautiful and you are going to be comfortable in it and have a lovely day. Congratulations.

I was ready to hate a dress from "little" but I like that.

Buzzardbird Mon 30-May-16 19:49:03

Hah! AF, I always want to hate them too, it's just an unfortunate choice of name.

pleasethankyouthankyouplease Mon 30-May-16 19:49:23

Like it ! Relax and have a great time!

Gardenbirds123 Mon 30-May-16 19:50:26

Really like it.
Not normally the sort of thing I'd like either but this just works! Lovely! Congrats
