I'm going on a sunny holiday next week and there aren't many dresses about.
Would this be suitable for the evenings and do you know what the fit is like?
I'm 5'9" size 14 with big hips and a smallish bust

Yikes, is it really frumpy?

The pattern is very Boden sorry don't like it the black or navy would be ok. I have a friend who is quite curvy and she wears them all the time she looks good.

Thanks Zara I was worried the navy looked a bit overall like, but sadly I think you're right about the print.

I think it's a very unflattering print.

What about their 'pretty ruched wrap dress'? The print options are nicer, and I think the one colour ones would also look a lot better in that design. And it looks a bit more summer holiday / less formal in a way? (But I'm in no way an expert on S&B grin I just saw your theead in active convos and thought I would give my humble opinion )

Notice they have 20% off at the moment too.

I have some for work. I need to wear a camisole under

I saw the ruched one daisy but the gathers around the middle would do my flabby hips no favours blush.

I also like Georgia Jersey dress, casual jersey dress, maxi Jersey dress and casual weekend dreas.

There's my summer wardrobe sorted if I have a little lottery win grin

I have to wear a cami top underneath as they tend to be cut quite low - quite busty though (12/14).
I'm not wild about Boden prints normally but I think the black and navy ones look very "officey".
