Dress Fitting Help - Moi Meme Motie Stained Glass Print Chiffon Sundress

So my main question here is this: Is this dress strictly empire waist?

Sadly, I am chunky with a 40ish inch bust and a 29 waist. I plan on corseting myself to get down to a 28-27. Because i am on the more heavier side, empire waist dresses look VERY awful on me. Due to the high difference in bust and waist, dresses that show off my waist line look a lot more flattering.

Because of this, I would like to know if I can somehow make this dress more flattering to my figure WITHOUT altering it and thus decreasing its value.  I have not bought this dress yet in fear that i may not be able to make this dress flatterin Could I simply move the ribbon down and possibly make it more defining to my waist without making the dress look bulky up to

If anyone has any advice or even owns the dress and can help me out, it would be greatly appreciated! Hopefully this post isn't too noobish >_>|||
