They look stunning on the models, effortlessly chic.
Any idea what they look like on really women with a few bumps and a thick middle?
I'd choose a dark colour and wear sucky in pants.

I have one in plain black.
Very simple maxi bias cut.
It is very long! I'm 5'7 and it sweeps the floor
It is great though.
Very versatile

I got married in a Ghost dress, while a size 18 and 7 months pregnant.

Sounds promising, thank you.
I'm 5'10" so a good length is a bonus.
This looks like I could wear a bra with it

Unfortunately I'm 5'3" and will probably drown in them. grin

I had a long black bias cut one years ago. I loved it but it was very unforgiving IMO. I only wore it when I felt very thin as to me it showed every lump and bump. Having said that, I was quite self-conscious then.

I may revisit as I always think they look lovely when I see them and they always have some beautiful colours.

That is a lovely dress.

I also got married in one, a dark plum colour, it had a little train so was supposed to be on the floor at the back. I'm 5' 7" and was a size 12/14 on my wedding day, I wore Spanx and it looked fine, the bias cut makes them hang beautifully, I've had more than one long dress from them.
