I'm thinking that maybe a skinny belt works better at my waist (like here) and a wider belt looks more appropriate worn a little lower. I'll have to experiment some more.
Another uncomfortable aspect is showing this much leg. I prefer a longer length, but really liked the colors and pattern of this dress so I'm trying to wear it.
