    Honestly = the dress is vile!

    IMO find something else, but if you are happy wearing it, then carry on.

    what do you mean by see through? it's pink fabric, not my skin just in case there's any confusion lol
    Ah, is it? Well, I can't say I could really tell. Sorry :o:

    Just anything more classic would be my recommendation.

    I actually really like it, both the pattern and the shape! I think it's got a vintage look to it, I can see what others are saying about the shape, but it looks to me like it's supposed to be kind of blousy and not too fitted.
    Can I ask where you got it from?
    i got it in the asos sale but that was a while ago so i don't think it will still be there
    but thanks

    Sorry but I think that both the shape and the pattern are appalling.

    I don't think it does anything for you, sorry... You don't really fill it out, it's a bit like a sack, and I'm not sure about the pattern either... Why don't you look at dresses that are a bit more fitted, they'll show of your figure...

    I would say its a little dark and drab for your own engagement party, think you may just fade into the background at your own party, which is not good.

    Maybe something a little brighter? and classic, like others have said, that you wont look back on in future and think "it was the fashion at the time"

    Hope you find something

    I like the dress, but it makes you look really shapeless. Its far too big, As your quite slim, why not get something more fitted?

    It looks like you've taken a photo of your back.
    That's exactly what I thought!

    I think it depends upon your colouring, but I prefer the bluey one

    I think when you actually tried that latest dress on it would have exactly the same problems the original one did....there's really not that much difference between them. Why are you so into that 1950s cinched in waist hourglass shape? I think it's for slightly older women really, and is best left to those with big boobs/tiny waist/big bum, or people with problem figures they want to hide a bit. But if you're set on it I like the blue much more.
