That adorable 100 pound girl looks as if she is pregnant or is hiding a watermelon under her layers. I like a dress that has an empire waist. Alice and The Pirates has a couple dresses that I just adore with that certain design element. They know how to use it properly though. This dress though, just, looks so unflattering. I find with an empire waist the dress must have a bottom that has a little less poof to it. Don't get me wrong. I am not Meta hater. Actually, I love Meta and it is one of my favorite brands. and for the most parts I really like their stuff.
Even with a super thin or fit girl, an unflattering dress will make them look fat. Just drop the waist and it is a great dress. I made a little change and this is what I got. The silhouette is much more flattering.
Please keep in mind that this is just my opinion and my feelings. I am sure there are girls who love it as is and think that it is flattering. To each his own. I just have strong feelings toward this dress and wanted to share my thoughts.
