Am repeatedly drawn to this but don't know if that's a good thing?

Very definitely vile, sorry.

Unless you are 5ft 10", whippet thin, 18 yrs old and walking down a catwalk, then no, don't do it.

I don't like it as my boobs would fall out and the weird gathering of material on the front would make me look too fat! But you could wear it if you were 20, thin and a fashion-y kind of person. (I am none of those I'm afraid grin)

Thanks - I think you are all 100% correct unfortunately.

I like it but I wouldn't wear it, unless I grew up by 5inches (to 6ft) and shrank by 2 dress sizes (to an 8)

Hideous and you would need tit tape.

MinkyBorage Mon 21-Sep-09 16:43:05

it's lovely, are you all blind???

Project Runway reject. Heinous.

Gorgeous. I have it in magenta and find the flounces hide those few extra stones. It's a showstopper.

I actually quite like it but you would have to have teeny weeny boobs and a fat free back.

I like it. If you love it you should go for it. But where would you wear a dress like that - any red carpet moments coming up?

The last time I dressed up was for a New Year party. Nearly everyone else was wearing jeans! sad If you can't dress up then, when can you?

angrypixie Mon 21-Sep-09 16:57:08

Fat free back I can do - teeny weeny boobs no!

I think I am 10 years too old sad

It could look ace on someone with a celebrity style figure. It might be unwise to try with any other body shape though....

MadameCastafiore Mon 21-Sep-09 16:58:28

I love it!

Try All Saints for things like it but not as booby fallingoutish!

i like it but would never buy it simply because i would never ever have anywhere suitable to wear it to

dexter73 Mon 21-Sep-09 17:11:33

I like it but not the colour. I would think it would look good in magenta like hullygully has.

God I think it's bloody lovely, I'd definitely wear it if I had the figure
