I'm going out for my birthday, very rare occurrence and I want to look good. I am fat so have been looking at pictures/blogs for inspiration and love this, can anyone help me find the clothes to buy anywhere to recreate it?
Also I was thinking of wearing tights (cold plus conscious of fat legs) could I get away with that?

You can try Lindy Bop for petticoats as a starting point.

There a few tulle skirts on ASOS at the moment. Not sure what size fat is, but a couple of them are in the plus size range?

Try eBay for a tulle skirt.

Asos have loads of tulle skirts

I second Lindy Bop - amazing stuff and perfect for curvy girls (I have finally found dresses that fit my hips!)

I have this

It's very dramatic. I'm size 18/20 and wear it with tights.

Elsie's Attic are always mentioned when someone is looking for a tulle skirt.

As PPs have said there are also loads on ASOS

Thanks everyone, loads of ideas for the skirt that I'll check out!

What about the top? A top/jumper with those frilly shoulder bits?

I'm a 18ish top and a 22 bottom for those asking my definition of fat!

I like this

Or maybe a Bardot top.

Or just a plain black T-shirt or vest. Dress it up with jewellery and it's very Carrie Bradshaw

Personally I would wear long sleeves like this:

long sleeve tulle skirt

Something like this would also work short sleeve

I saw a very similar skirt in TK max this week.
