How about having a look at dorothy perkins? they do such a wide variety of tunic/dresses that can be dressed up. I love tunics as the skim over my spare tyres of flab bumps. If you get A line shaped ones they look really structured and smart smile failing that maxi dresses are right bang on trend and personally i think they look soo feminine whilst not being clingy whatsoever smile

Agree with maxi dresses. Also, amny stores like Debenhams/ Topshop etc do a free personal shopper service. At least they can see something on you and offer advice.x

Budget id say up to about £50.

The trouble im having is anything empire line or tight makes me look about 3 mths pregnant and anything too baggy makes me look even bigger!! sad

this is very pretty on with dark tights
I normally would wear a broader belt however the skinny belt that comes with it is nice
It is much longer on me
I'm a 14 in most shops, but the 12 in this is fine one me.
