Sister in law is getting married this summer and I need to find a frock but struggle to find styles to fit.

I'm 5'5", 30f, 8 - 10 depending on store (although with dresses, often a 10 won't fit on top, but bottom half is swamped in bigger sizes). I also have big shoulders/neck muscles (swimmer) and fat(ish) arms so have to be careful with necklines to avoid looking a bit Russian shotputter.

All help appreciated

What's your budget?

I'd like to spend less than a £100 (on say a dress, not the whole outfit), but can go higher than that for something I really like.

I think this is pretty, but it has no sleeves

BendyBusBuggy Sat 02-Apr-16 19:13:47

Or This?

I think this might work for broad shoulders

BikeGeek Sat 02-Apr-16 20:11:21

I'm not broad unfortunately, when I say broad shoulders i mean the shoulder blade bit. It often means dresses just don't do up across the back.

I suspect the wrap dress would be obscene on me! The other dresses I think are fairly hideous - sorry!

If it's a problem finding dresses which fit well, why not go for something like this midi skirt .
The top which they've matched with it might be a bit too revealing if you've got big boobs, but a shell top would cover up cleavage and would look good.

What kind of style do you like?

No print?

E.g.

Skirts that are that long on the 5 foot 10 inch model would be at the ankles on me! And I have no idea what a shell top is

ScarlettDarling Sat 02-Apr-16 21:27:33

Well yes bikeGeek it doesn't have to be that exact skirt...you could look for something similar from a petite range. And you could google shell top and see what the results were.

To be quite frank you've been rather rude about all suggestions made. You'd probably be better off finding your own outfit hmm

BikeGeek Sat 02-Apr-16 21:31:08

This is what I get when I google shell top! I admittedly don't know much about fashion terms but I'm pretty sure it's not what you meant!

ScarlettDarling Sat 02-Apr-16 21:34:37

shell top

ScarlettDarling Sat 02-Apr-16 21:39:11

More shell tops
