<disclaimer: I an not blessed with large tits>

I have the same cut in a different fabric from last season. I like it - it's elegant. The front drape bit is excellent. No tits ahoy.Back is elasticated.

PharoahNuff Tue 07-Jun-11 19:53:57

The back view is a bit weird. Otherwise, I likee.

PharoahNuff Tue 07-Jun-11 19:56:02

i thought that.
and HEY its grey

MissBeehiving Tue 07-Jun-11 20:02:51

You gotta love grey, well if you shop at MV, there is no choice usually BUT they do have it in punk blush as well. Back on mine is good. Not tight. The waist gives if definition <poncey emoticon>

PharoahNuff Tue 07-Jun-11 20:03:24

and how straight is skirt

MissBeehiving Tue 07-Jun-11 20:10:13

It's straight but not tight and slightly flounces just above the knee. It sort of hangs off your arse in an appealing way.

MrsCampbellBlack Tue 07-Jun-11 20:13:09

Will it not show your knickers?

Its very principles isn't it? wink

MissBeehiving Tue 07-Jun-11 20:37:05

Only if your knicks are knee length grin

PharoahNuff Tue 07-Jun-11 21:45:30

I won't wear any.

There is a lovely dress in gap I tried on today but didn't buy. It comes oin red or a dark grape purple colour with asymetric neck and knee length. Silky material. Think you would like. Although that one you linked is gorge doesn't look busty at all

Cap sleeves.

I'd look like dinner lady rather than geisha. But if I were smaller boned...

campbel;; - her eon MV site

pooka Wed 08-Jun-11 08:08:48

It looks lovely on the MV website - always like a picture of someone actually wearing a dress. Find the John Lewis website pretty crap for working out length/finished styles and stuff.

If I hadn't got swimmers' shoulders....

'Sale' has just popped onto their main menu again, though there's only the same old leftovers in there, but I reckon they're about to start marking down current stock. Worth waiting a bit?

(PS: in previous sales, they have reduced items within the main categories before moving them into the 'sale' section: which means that the SHEMAG code would temporarily work on the sale price. Miss B knows what I mean ...)

Looks VERY short.

PharoahNuff Wed 08-Jun-11 15:02:25

I'm just a slaaag innit

TrillianAstra Wed 08-Jun-11 15:10:28

Maybe you are a midget and it'd be knee-length on you!

StyleandBooty Thu 09-Jun-11 14:08:52

PharoahNuff Thu 09-Jun-11 15:11:00
