I wore this one to a party on Saturday. It's great for a post-baby tummy as it kind of sucks you in, and is black so very forgiving.

Can't link but I got the Phase Eight Agy dress, it truly is the dress of my life. Flattering, comfortable, modest and sexy all at once. A gem of a dress.

And it was reduced!

piprabbit Mon 26-Nov-12 11:29:00

I love this dress, can't decide whether to go for the purple or the black at the moment.
It is very flatteringly cut, lets me take a size smaller than usual and is very pretty.
N.B. I am 40+ and fat, this is the first dress in years to make me feel gorgeous when I try it on.

i really liked this from Monsoon though i'll be wearing sth similar i already own if i actually go to a party this year

MorrisZapp Mon 26-Nov-12 11:39:18

Thanks Edgar!

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 26-Nov-12 11:42:14

Hello. Just a reminder that, on this thread, you can actually post up the picture (rather than just the link) if you'd like to...

piprabbit Mon 26-Nov-12 11:44:11

Oooh yes, so I can.
How exciting.

piprabbit Mon 26-Nov-12 11:48:44

Did that work? It looked like it worked in preview, but I can't see it now.
I'll try again...

maillotjaune Mon 26-Nov-12 12:00:54

I love that Phase Eight Agy dress but it wasn't for me. I have bought this
Hobbs Angela Dress
and this Phase Eight Bolero to go with it.

The dress is a shade darker but they are similar tone so go perfectly.

I haven't had a "party" dress for years and am 42 and still not back to my pre-children size but this is the most flattering thing I have worn for a long time.

FrostyTheShosheman Mon 26-Nov-12 12:13:30

After trying god knows how many in so many bloody shops. I found this in of all places Tesco

It fits perfectly dosnt make my boobs look as massive as they actually are and to can it all was only 18 quid.

Bought a different one in plain black with see though sleeves as well which is lovely, not on the web site any more

MorrisZapp Mon 26-Nov-12 12:19:18

Love all these dresses. What good taste we all have smile

poorbuthappy Mon 26-Nov-12 12:28:15

Will this work? Who knows...

Hubby's 40th birthday party next month.

poorbuthappy Mon 26-Nov-12 12:29:42

Why did my picture show up when i previewed message and then didnt when i posted? confused

Everythingwillbeok Mon 26-Nov-12 12:30:28

Found mine last week in Dorothy Perkins, leopard print top half with a peplum waist,plain black bottom half and a patent black belt. It's lovely very soft fabric but not the sort that will go bobbly and clingy but not tight.... I love it £32 but scanned at £25.60 as had 20% off wore it on sat night works Xmas do got so many compliments.

thestringcheesemassacre Mon 26-Nov-12 12:32:04

I bought this for a mates 40th and it's so nice on. Really flattering and very comfortable.

Daftyson Mon 26-Nov-12 12:45:12

I've got a few things I need to wear something sparkly to over the next month or two. I needed something that will be quite versatile as I can't buy something new for each one. I ended up finding something from Warehouse which was great as it wasn't too spendy!

pinterest.com/pin/23010648067734082/

Daftyson Mon 26-Nov-12 12:49:19

piprabbit - love the colour of your dress smile We'll be wearing similar colours!

I've go this dress and I love it! hides a multitude of sins

And I got it when there was 40% off! Bonus!

BIWI Mon 26-Nov-12 13:06:50

Oooh - yes! I have bought a lovely dress, and shoes to match

BIWI Mon 26-Nov-12 13:07:12

Both from Debenhams, and both reduced.

Pics take a minute or so to upload once posted! Mnhq should add w wee warning about it!

My sister has that dress BIWI! It is georgous!

Georgous?? Gorgeous

garlicbaguette Mon 26-Nov-12 13:36:20

That's luffly, BIWI smile Not surprised it's sold out!

I got this, in red though. The fabric's a bit low-budget, but the cut's brilliant for those of us with excessive waistline lard wink

Chopsypie Mon 26-Nov-12 13:38:03

This is mine, from Dorothy Perkins. Needs big industrial strength stomch holding in pants though, to iron out my lumps and bumps

I really love it, it gives me a nice shape, shows a hint of boob and isnt too short or too long. It is ina weird neoprene type fabric though

AWimbaWay Mon 26-Nov-12 13:46:00

I love this jigsaw beaded dress, but sadly, or luckily as it was very expensive, it appears to be sold out now,

AWimbaWay Mon 26-Nov-12 13:46:56

I also want this Reiss one.

Piccalilli2 Mon 26-Nov-12 14:21:18

Warehouse have one which is similar to that Jigsaw one, it's £80.

I love the Coast Telina dress here - just wish I'd bought it when John Lewis had 20% off, not sure I can justify it at full price

NancyMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 26-Nov-12 14:38:18

Lovely photos and suggestions! Please do keep them coming - all very gratefully received.

Although as an afterthought, we should have added that along with the photos, please don't forget to post a link to the dress too (or we can't see where it's from!)

AWimbaWay Mon 26-Nov-12 14:39:31

Have just had a nosey on the warehouse website and can't spot any similar to the jigsaw one?

I guess this H&M dress is similar but I really don't like it, just looks cheap (fair enough, at £29.99 it is!)

In real life the jigsaw dress is stunning, really intricate beading, great cut and hangs beautifully.

TheyCallMeStacey Mon 26-Nov-12 14:54:52
garlicbaubles Mon 26-Nov-12 14:58:45

That Jigsaw dress was fabulous. I've got a Warehouse top with the same heavy beading, but there's nothing on their website for this year.

Monsoon have got a nice sequinned, fringed, cream mini flapper dress at only £249 <gasp>

www.day.dk/uk/uk/day/night-fine-velvet_1107472/1107473?navId=95

I want this one...

No idea how to do a picture...

maldivemoment Mon 26-Nov-12 16:02:12

This thread is making me envy & sad.

I have two scrumptious, adorable, delightful, beautiful little ones. One is 3 and the other is 4 months and I'm breastfeeding. This (small children and breastfeeding) means there will be no sparkly-bubbles-a-plenty-parties for me this Christmas.
To make this even more pathetic I saw some LOVELY dresses in my local charity shops today shock (can't link, for obvious reasons!).

Sorry to hijack. As you were...

You save the image from the website (or take a picture of your dress) and then when you post, in the posting box there's a 'choose file' button that allows you to upload your picture.

I covet this dress. I have nowhere to wear it and no funds to buy it but it's perfect!

fryingpanalley Mon 26-Nov-12 19:13:23

This Vivienne dress from Fever is hugely flattering. Great cut and thick fabric. Comes in red or black.
It's not remotely glitzy but ideal for going out straight from work- just add jewellery, heels etc. Good if you want a multipurpose type dress for several occasions, especially as it's not especially cheap.
I'm currently trying to decide whether to wear it to the MN meet up on Saturday, or to stick with jeans <shy>

Anskabel Mon 26-Nov-12 19:16:04

I bought this lace print dress from Karen Millen today - I've had my eye on it for a while, but was waiting for a 20% discount offer!

www.karenmillen.com/lace-print-pleated-dress//karenmillen/fcp-product/102DP27869

Djembe Mon 26-Nov-12 19:30:49

Am using the iPhone app and pictures don't show, also I can't post one sad

However I will share my beauty of a party season dress: Michelle dress from Hush - it's fab because it can be dressed up, it's lovely silky fabric, with bare legs, copious fake tan high heels and silver jewellery, or worn like the Hush model over skinnies or leggings. I could literally wear it everywhere smile plan to buy it in the claret colour too.

It's also great if you're pregnant as it's so floaty.

EdgarAllanPond Mon 26-Nov-12 19:39:44

annskabels - hope this works...

EdgarAllanPond Mon 26-Nov-12 19:42:45

EdgarAllanPond Mon 26-Nov-12 19:49:35

i love ummofummbridges - that is lush. fit wise going to be a bit tight round the bum on me - even if i had the occasion to wear it to!

moonshine Mon 26-Nov-12 19:49:43

GlaikitFizzog - I have just received that dress today, without the discount sadly, but have found it almost impossible to get hold of. As soon as they go on the site they sell out. But tis worth every penny.

I can confirm it is super flattering, even for a, ahem, curvier person like myself (no pleats on the back skirt bit so doesn't stick out), very stylish and the Holy Grail - a sleeved dress!

myalias Mon 26-Nov-12 19:51:05

Wow that dress is gorgeous Anskabel

EdgarAllanPond Mon 26-Nov-12 19:51:13

akaemmafrost Mon 26-Nov-12 19:52:08

Here here moonshine! I've been searching for something like it since adele at the Grammys in February! Or was it the Brits. It was adele anyway!

I have also discovered fit and flare dresses from Dotty Ps and very flattering! And bargainous!

JamInMyWellies Mon 26-Nov-12 20:07:45

Oh Edgar I have tried that Damsel one on it is lovely, very very flattering.

This is my dress of choice it has a great shape just below the knee low cut but not porno esque. have bought it for my sisters wedding

MikeLitoris Mon 26-Nov-12 20:07:46

I want this but cannot justify the cost right now sad

Spookey80 Mon 26-Nov-12 20:26:35

Bump- love this thread.

Annskabels - I think I saw that one in pink on the Asos website. I love it!

I've just this minute won this wee beauty! It's Pearl Lowe for Peacocks from a few years ago. I've been lusting after/searching for it ever since!

Yay grin

Doh! This one

Every time I try to post the pic it cocks up. Grrr. Link will have to do.

Also Glaikit - I just bought your dress. T'is gorgeous grin

SantyClaws Mon 26-Nov-12 21:06:42

my lbd is really quite boring in comparison (no point linking, not in uk)

earlyriser Mon 26-Nov-12 21:32:31

Love this one from boohoo, and a bargain at only £30

piprabbit Mon 26-Nov-12 21:44:42

Thanks Santy - the back is the same as the front, a deep lace V, just enough flesh to be celebratory, not enough to be embarressing grin.
Sounds like I need to get the purple grin.

Got this in Chester as a treat to myself for surviving a rubbish year! It's super figure hugging and the material and cut make it look super expensive. It reminds me of a Karen Millen dress but for a fraction of the price. Love it.

Some lovely dresses there. My pet hate at the moment is the panel dress.

I'm not going anywhere that requires wearing an LBD type dress this year, but if I were, I'd wear something like this with shiny leggings and and I already have some velvet high sandals in that colour with diamantés that would match.

(And sorry you've all had so much problem with the pictures, it's been forwarded to tech's to-look-at)

Does anyone have any suggestions for big fatty fat fat pregnant women? All the maternity dresses I've found are either hideously expensive or really shapeless and unflattering. I'm 6 months pg and can't find anything nice to wear sad

SayCool, the best-looking pregnant women in evening dress that I've seen have either gone for the plunging neckline, Empire line, fertility goddess look OR stretch jersey with proudly protruding bump. I think this is great: they've got some other sexy styles there, too smile

Me&em Grecian dress in peacock blue. Can't wait to wear it.

I'm reporting back on this frock. It's sold out again but they might get it back in before xmas.

Anyway, it's gorgeous. Fits beautifully (in a 12-weight loss woop!) and is really classy/50's. The belt is a bit like something you'd find around a smellies set from Boots but I'll replace it with a nicer one.

Still waiting for my Pearl Lowe dress to arrive. Grrr!

I am very excited, just been to my local town and a new Mint Velvet shop has opened. Tried on the above dress and it's gorgeous.

Mint Velvet gold dress.

Love some of these dresses but I need sleeves. <old alert>. I've ordered the Coast Charlotte dress someone linked to earlier so hopefully it does the job. More with sleeves you style hounds. Please. smile

Singing, why not look at shrugs? There are lots of pretty ones about: long-sleeved, short-sleeved, fitted, draped, fine knit, shimmery; all sorts! As a bonus, you can often find beautiful ones at stupidly low prices.

Tell you what, pick some dresses and Tethers we'll find you some shrugs smile

Do you like this? Phase Eight metallic bolero, reduced to £28.

AWimbaWay Thu 29-Nov-12 19:59:22

SingingTunelessly, they also had this dress with sleeves in mint velvet I loved it but was worried it might be a bit warm on a night out.

SayCool haven't seen you around for ages - not that you know me, I namechange all the bloody time. I like your name <stalk>

Anyway the dress I posted upthread is perfect if you're preggers, pair with heels, loads of sparkly jewellery and copious fake tan.
