Dress advice

Morning all style gurus!

Have seen this dress for a wedding but before I ordered, wondered if anyone could advise what body shape would (or probably more importantly wouldn't) suit it. Do you have to be slim for it to look ok or do you think it would be a bit more forgiving on larger frames? I'm a 14 (prob a 16 in P8 dresses) but carry weight around the middle.

Really struggling to find something I like. I prefer tunic style dresses & feel they suit me the most, but can't seem to find any suitable enough for a wedding. I'm a jeans & trainer girl & hate formal shopping 😞

I carry weight around my middle and I think Id look pregnant in that dress ☹

I recommend wrap dresses for hiding fuller middles.

Another apple here and that dress would look shocking on me.

I also object to paying £130 for a dress that is 100% polyester shock.
