I made a mistake because I made the assumption that the neck tucks would release enough fabric for my bust - in fact the extra in the tucks is focused around the neck only and this dress narrows pretty quickly again at the bust. I definitely needed a FBA, you can see by the stripes, and I let out the side seams at the underarms as much as I could, which helped comfort if not really adding where I needed it.
All in all though a fun around the house summer dress but I would make some real changes if I were ever going to make it again so I could wear it to work.
And I think it looks just fine without the belt.
