Anything you like on Pepperberry?

Was about to suggest pepper berry, I got 2 great dresses from there this week.

Collectif do lovely vintage style dresses that would be perfect for a wedding. They go up to size 22 but I find the Dolores style very generous in the bust area as it has a good stretch. Sorry I cant do links but if you have a look at FullerfigureFullerbusts blog you will see what I mean!

If you like the Dolores then you may be able to get away with a smaller size. I am a 16 on the high street but wear a 14 in the Dolores. As does fullerfigurefullerbust and her boobs are enormous!

Collectif are very good at hunting down stuff too so if you email them they may be able to find a 22 in one of their shops/warehouse?

Yeah, the Delores really does come up massive, the size I ordered gave my bust measurement as the top end of the size it would fit but it was about 1 1/2 sizes too big when it came. Including the stretch it could even have been 2 sizes too big. It was too long on me (also 5'4"), almost maxi length but don't be put off by that - a seamstress could take it up really easily.

There's a size chart here. Don't order from them though, they're not in the UK.

I don't think the Violet Polka will have any stretch, unfortunately. this is my favourite of theirs.

Before I go digging, how about separates? this or this, this (with removable braces removed, natch) and this.

I love the bouquet print and am waiting for it to go into the sale! I got the hibiscus Dolores which is also lovely-its a dark grey which really makes the red and green flower print pop. Although I don't find it as stretchy as my polka dot or cherry print Dolores so yes I would email them for exact measurements.

The violet is lovely but far more a day dress to my mind. The Dolores is a real va va voom dress especially with a petticoat. Order one and I bet your dh will change his mindwink

could you ring your original choice company and ask if there have been any returns?

IceAddict Sat 29-Jun-13 20:45:15

Hi I just had a little google for you, have you tried Curvissa they have some nice dresses up to size 32 I think
