I love the shape of this dress. No matter what your size try to find a dress with an element of 'fitted' somewhere. This fitted waist draws your attention in and the fuller skirt away from the hips. Don't dress baggy all over.
So pretty and simple for evenings. Great idea for a wedding dress on a tight budget. Beautiful white or ivory heavy lace top (Irish lace perhaps) and simple gathered skirt in silk tulle. Add a heavy satin ribbon sash and voila!
