Going to a wedding in northern Italy in a couple of months. I fancy wearing a (nice!) maxi dress and sparkly sandals because I can't be faffed with heels and nude rights in hot weather (not happy enough with my legs to go bare).

I was thinking of something like this, and dressing it up with jewellery and sparky flat sandals. Is it wedding-worthy? Top half is jersey but bottom half is georgette so delicate and flowy.

It's a good plan. If you love that dress go for it but there are 'better' dresses to be had.

Is it synthetic? I think you'd have to be careful it wasn't one of sweaty synthetics. Some are fine though, IME.

Definitely willing to be pointed in the direction of better maxi dresses! I am 'well endowed' in the boob department and don't suit high necks /can't do strapless. Am also not exactly a stick - post baby body is still a 16/18 so have to be careful. I need to try that one on to satisfy my curiosity.

Good point about sweaty fabrics.

this is very pretty
maybe?
I adore this but it's certainly not for everyone. Bet Tethers would love it

Those are Viscose which I get on better with than Polyester, as a general rule.

Lovliness in cotton

That Biba dress is absolutely beyond gorgeous.

MrsLettuce Mon 18-Apr-16 23:14:48

Isn't it just?

That's lovely OP. Get a wide brimmed hat to go with it. Where's it from? I've got an over seas wedding at the end of May and still hav not got anything sad

God I checked before I posted too blushexcuse typos

MotherBluestocking Mon 18-Apr-16 23:18:16

I might just have to buy it. Even though it might be a little de trop on the school run.

MrsLettuce Mon 18-Apr-16 23:23:38

You'll regret it if you don't, I fear.
It's just too good. Grumph.

MotherBluestocking Mon 18-Apr-16 23:27:15

Don't like the model's shoes though.

MrsLettuce Mon 18-Apr-16 23:28:40

Ach, you can't have everything. Really.

Thanks for the links! The biba and Alicia temperley dresses are very not me - too much of a statement! But the other two are definitely worth a look. The FC one is beautiful but I fear I might not squeeze into the biggest size sad

These are all Monsoon OP, I think they're very pretty (quite wish I had an occasion to buy one myself !!!)

Dress 1

Not a maxi but a good length to hide legs

No tights needed here either?

MiniCooperLover Tue 19-Apr-16 09:15:33

PS: I do like the dress you've linked to originally also.

Wait4nothing Tue 19-Apr-16 09:30:55

I like your original and mini's dress 1.

MummaGiles Tue 19-Apr-16 10:29:30

Thanks mini. Dress 1 is nice, the other two definitely wouldn't work for me - high neck is a no no!

I like the dress the OP posted, I don't normally like maxi dresses as they billow out from under the bust and I don't normally do floaty.

I think it is chic and perfect for a wedding teamed with some gorgeous sunglasses for when you are outside sipping prosecco.

Get it.

Lucked Tue 19-Apr-16 10:36:51

OP where is it from?

MummaGiles Tue 19-Apr-16 11:04:38

It's from studio 8, I've only recently come across them trying to find something to wear for this wedding - it's a plus size range so only starts at 16 (or maybe 14 I can't remember) but I'm hoping that means the cut will actually flatter a fuller figure, which I need!

MummaGiles Tue 19-Apr-16 11:04:56

Ooh sunglasses!

If it's Italy, I suspect everyone else (female) will be in full on gowns.
