JetJ Amour d'amants robe sizing q

Apologies if this has been asked already (if you had a nickel for every time someone says that), but I searched and found nothing. Like just about everyone else, I have have fallen in love with JetJ's many dresses featuring paintings. I am now contemplating purchasing Amour d'amants robe (a robe by any other name), but I'm unsure about the sizing. I've already determined that I would not be able to wear size 1, but I have a dilemma with size 2. Here are my issues.

1. I do not typically wear skirts at my 'natural waist,' (blasphemy!) so I don't really know what my natural waist size is. I like my skirts to sit just below my belly button, and I'm about 35" (maybe 34?) there. Where does the dress actually sit? At the natural waist, or lower?
2. I have recently moved halfway across the world (South Korea) and don't have a measuring tape to check my actual measurements. I also don't know where I would find one here, so until I do, I'm kind of stuck as far as measurements go. So can you ladies tell me what is the absolute maximum this dress will go?

I hope that was clear, and you all understand what I'm asking. And ff you have to crush my dream of owning this dress, it's okay. I'll take it like a man. (In other words, I'll cry. [If you're a male reading this, I mean no offense.])
