Please can I have some opinions on this dress please. Have just started to update my wardrobe now DS is 3 months old. I still need to lose a stone (and a half...) but need some things to make me feel more me now, but don't want to spend too much in case I lose weight in next 2-3 months. I need things for nice days out/lunches and feel a bit lost as seems ages since I shopped for me! Am 5f4, slim legs, carry weight around tummy.
I would need to wear heels with it, does skim tummy area.
Phase eight dress fab-I got a few things in the sale from there the other day but they didnt have that dress left in my size. They had the hayley one though-the turquoise one with the beaded neck? am toying with conning money out of dh to get that!.
I have the navy and white phase 8 dress and wore it at the weekend. It's very slimming from the front as the eyes are drawn inwards. However, I have just seen some photos of myself from the side and the dress makes me look much bigger/wider on the side!
I also have the phase 8 dress (after some dithering and prompting from MN!). It fits me beautifully - I usually need a bigger top size than skirts and find dresses really hard to get, but this is perfect. I've worn it several times already.
The very nice ladies in the JL lingerie section found me a strapless bra to go with it as well.
I am going to examine rear/side reflection when DH gets home (and I don't have a permanently bf'ing baby on my lap). From the front I did think was very flattering although a bit too long, but I could get it taken up an inch or so.
Jigsaw dress seems to be sold out, that will teach me for procrastinating.
pink4ever The turquoise phase 8 dress is lovely and still available on JL website.
