Another wedding guest one I'm afraid! Dress with sleeves?

I'm off to a posh wedding soon. I've just been dumped so I'm going alone and feeling a bit vulnerable so naturally want to look my best!

I'm 5ft2 so anything too long drowns me, have quite wide hips, and chubby arms. Decent boobs though. Size 10/12

Has anyone seen a dress that might suit me? I'd really like one with sleeves because having my arms on show makes me feel really unattractive.

Thank you smile

Hi OP,
Full length, half or 3/4 length sleeves?

This is beautiful and half price at the moment!

A wrap dress with sleeves? Accentuates your bust and hides your hips? uk.monsoon.co.uk/view/product/uk_catalog/mon_1,mon_1.2/9520971010

Or something like this?

Thanks everyone. Some really nice dresses but I don't think any of them are 'the one'. I'm not sure what I'm looking for really but if anyone has any more suggestions I'd be really grateful.

I have just found this website and can't wait till I have a wedding to go to next year so that I can wear one of their dresses. I know this isn't what you were asking for but they have a really good range, I bet you can find something in there www.yesstyle.co.uk/en/lilygirl-floral-print-midi-a-line-dress/info.html/pid.1050351337

I was looking at a website today called The pretty dress company which had some lovely occasion dresses on it.
Chi Chi London is worth a look too
I am also looking for a dress for a wedding in two weeks time .
It's so hard to get something that feels perfect .
