Hi! Making this thread as I like this dress & have bought it but would love some honest opinions on 1) if this dress is nice
2) if this dress looks nice on me/my body shape.

It’s for a small wedding reception, I was thinking strappy heels and hair either in a bun or to one side (like vintage curls).

Thank you in advance!

Yes its lovely and suits your figure very well

It’s a bit bridesmaidy but otherwise nice from what I can see.
It would look better when you’re all glammed up I’m sure.

Swallowzandamazons Fri 21-Aug-20 17:10:44

I think it's very elegant. The colour's pretty, too.

Greenbks Fri 21-Aug-20 17:12:31

Yes! I thought it might be too bridesmaid- y but it’s my brother in law who’s getting married and It’s an Indian wedding (bride is wearing a white dress though) and people in attendance will be very glammed up - so don’t want to be under dressed!

Looks lovely, it really suits your figure. And your face is very pretty grin

Yes! Fits you really well.

What colour is your hair?

Love the style of the dress, and it suits you, but not a great colour. It might just be rubbish changing room lighting though!

Its gorgeous, love the colour

beautiful dress and it looks perfect on you. It is also glam enough and vivid enough a colour for an Indian wedding. Just stunning

I wouldnt wear it to a religious, Catholic wedding in a church, but sounds perfect for the wedding your are attending. I cant tell the colour though? Dark salmon? What colour accessories are you going for? I'd take a cardigan/pashmina too incase you get chilly. Where is it from?

Elouera Fri 21-Aug-20 17:33:58

Sorry, the fit looks great on your figure too.

Kote Fri 21-Aug-20 17:42:11

Yes it looks great on you smile

BraveGoldie Fri 21-Aug-20 17:44:47

It's lovely OP and looks great on you! What's the brand?

Uhtredswoman Fri 21-Aug-20 17:56:05

I LOVE it!! And it looks fab on you ❤️

Where is it from @Greenbks ?

Palavah Fri 21-Aug-20 18:01:01

Like it. I have a dress that colour and it looks great with old gold but also navy or teal accessories

Onacleardayyoucansee Fri 21-Aug-20 18:02:45

I was going to say it looks a bit big?
Maybe a size down?

Jessbow Fri 21-Aug-20 18:24:45

Honestly? I am not keen.
You look a bit kinda wrapped up, not sure , might be too big.

Makes you look a bit big in the bust dept, might be the camera angle/bra

It’s from ted baker! Here’s the link
www.tedbaker.com/uk/Womens/Clothing/Dresses/GABIE-One-shoulder-drape-midi-dress-Mid-Pink/p/157697-XMID-PINK

To answer a few questions:

The colour is hard to describe but I would say pink. Ted baker have described it as ‘mid pink’

Hair colour is dark brown.

I have no idea what accessories I’ll be pairing it with yet. Thanks @Palavah I’ll try it with good or real accessories. @Elouera Good call on the pashmina /cover. I wouldn’t have thought of it until closer to the time! I will have to make sure I buy something to go over it soon.

Thank you for all the comments! Looks like majority like it but I get some of the concerns with the dress since I have them too, like it’s a little loose at the front but I can’t get a size down otherwise it’ll be too tight in the bum area. I have a big bum blush

And @Jessbow I have thought that too, that I may look a little too wrapped up. I will try it on again in a few weeks - And might get a back up dress just in case!

That's really tacky and nasty.

Delatron Fri 21-Aug-20 18:50:13

Definitely looks good on you. Was going to ask hair colour as it wouldn’t suit a blonde! Dark brown hair will work well though.

I think gold accessories.

nzeire Fri 21-Aug-20 18:52:38

Stunning! Beautiful figure too!

ChaChaCha2012 Fri 21-Aug-20 18:54:03

I don't dislike it, but the material and drape is very similar to my dressing gown. A very nice dressing gown, but nonetheless.

You have a beautiful figure. There are nicer dresses out there.

hastingsmua1 Fri 21-Aug-20 18:55:18

Dunno. It’s okay but I think you could do better (if you wanted to).

I’m not sure I’d wear that to a wedding reception. It’s more of an evening out dress.

NoemiaElara Fri 21-Aug-20 19:02:23

I think it's beautiful! And the colour is beautiful! All round beautiful!
