Why does the dress make you look as if you did not have any waist? Do you think it will look better on a lady with smaller hip than yours? I have a little big butt for the size of my waist. (My SO calls me little big butt because of that reason.) I wonder if I will have the same problem if I get your dress. Also do you think the lengh of the skirt can be shortened without much problem?
I think it is best for someone that has smaller difference in hip/waist proportions or who is just thinner. I think it's because where the open back starts, but I am really not sure. It just isn't flattering for my body... If you want to try it on to see, let me know I think shortening should not be a problem.
