So hopeless at fashion, it's seriously not funny. However, being a 6 footer, I buy from Long Tall Sally. Here is one of their Maxi dresses. We are off on hols end of July...

any good, any one?

I like it - straps are thick enough to wear a bra, I like the pattern, not too flouncy-looking.

thanks Trillian.... yeah, I think I do too. But the model is gorgeously slim, and I'm... err, not. Well, not obese, but not slim like her, so the dress could change dramatically once I try it on.

OK, might just bite the bullet with this one. Cheers. xx

Haha that's kind of thing my DP would say!
Sorry my earlier message was very short and sweet. DS went from just stirring from his nap to full on wailing in the space of 5 seconds!

It is a lovely dress smile

I like it. Try it on before you judge. Loads of people have said that maxis aren't for my shape (I'm a 5'1" size 10-12) but I really like the ones I have.
