I've got a girls night out on Oct 12th and for various reasons I want to look amazing. I am thinking a red dress or perhaps a jumpsuit but it needs to be stunning. I am 5'4" with good boobs (34f), good legs and nice bottom (oh ok, I've recently lost weight and I want to show off my new figure!) I tried a dress in Bravissimo but it was a bit...ordinary.

Help please!! Will check back later....thanks

What sort of style do you like? Do o have a price range? I love red dresses!

Millen has loads at the moment.

Well, under £100 would be good. As for style, I like to show cleavage. It needs to be a true red too...

I quite like this but not sure if the crotch is too low...or if its "wow" enough.


Mortified, the first one is along the right lines... thanks so much, please keep the ideas coming.

Ignore that it is being modelled by that TOWIE tart!

Where did Karen go in that last post? confused

Try Holly Willoughby's range if you have big boobs- very wow and sexy.

SundaySimmons Fri 13-Sep-13 18:21:09

Another oinker model but a red dress


sarahandduck Fri 13-Sep-13 18:23:35

Ooh x-posted. SundaySimmons....I'm not young, well I'm not a teen, put it that way. I don't look my age and I will be going clubbing that night. I love love love that bank fashion dress but not sure I could carry it off.

Will look at all the other suggestions now.

this is stunning, may be worth checking regularly for returns in sizes bigger than a 6 (I'm guessing a 6 won't fit the 34f's grin)

this stunning, available in UK10 - would you do strapless?

fabulous Vivienne Westwood - great investment dress, so flattering and classy but definitely WOW.

I may be back....

Twinklestein Fri 13-Sep-13 18:26:27

@LaVitaBellissima - it would be fab if you could put your whole bust measurement but it only takes the band size!

Hmmm, nothing in the Holly Willoughby collection is grabbing me. How about a jumpsuit?? Any ideas?

LottienHuw Fri 13-Sep-13 18:31:46

Have you tried a vintage style ? Maybe something from www.vivienofholloway.com/

Alanna1 Fri 13-Sep-13 18:36:44

Personal shopper time?

sarahandduck Fri 13-Sep-13 18:38:10

Aarrgh......all gorgeous dress but not quite right. I didn't think I was this picky.

Yes, I'll do strapless, one shoulder, etc.

Twinkle stein, I put in my around bust measurement and it looked exactly like my figure! Amazing

sarahandduck Fri 13-Sep-13 20:34:15

They are all gorgeous but just not quite there. Oh god,I'm going to have to rethink aren't I? How about another striking colour.....turquoise, although perhaps wrong season.. Fuckity fuck!

If you could find it,I love this Oasis dress http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/Mjc1WDE4Mw==/z/DTIAAMXQxKxR-~-Q/$T2eC16R,!zoE9s5ne3OyBR-+-QMMO!~~60_35.JPG?set_id=8800004005

Oh, the Monica dress is amazing...but what the hell are the sizes??

sarahandduck Sat 14-Sep-13 12:10:55

Trip trap....your link is not working....

OPeaches Sat 14-Sep-13 12:15:05

This doesn't look much off, but is gorgeous on.

Kezztrel Sat 14-Sep-13 12:23:00

Turquoise one. They did a bright red version which was stunning, but think it's gone now. I have it in cobalt. It's lovely, really structured, heavy material and looks expensive. Would give you v good cleavage!

Thanks all. Faux fox....the booby one and halter neck are amazing. I can't go bra-less though. Am going to have a good look through and see if I can make a short list.

Any ideas for a jumpsuit?
