Not nessecarily, I remember back in the old day of Stitcher’s Guild the late TwoToast’s  winning lagenlook SWAP. While I’m not that keen (yet, never say never) on the style, I do like it on others.
The Curvy Sewing Collective blog featured a lagenlook for curvy women post a while ago. Here is the link for those interested:

And the link to TwoToast’s blog, who sadly passed away last year. She really rocked lagenlook and explained her choices in detail:

Agreed, they look very good, @Manuela. I also agree with @Sewingsue that it needs a certain personality to carry it off. And the points about getting caught up in things and/or tripping over - that would be me too  :|
Dogs are such a help when dressmaking!

Having recently dropped a saucepan due to getting a pocket caught on a drawer handle in the kitchen I think loose and baggy isn't for me!

I’m in the like the look on others camp. I think it works best on pear shaped bods. Mine is inverse pear. These dresses float around the only part of me that looks slim.
