Need a fabulous purple dress - anyone seen any out there?

My sister is getting married in September - she wants me and her two best friends who are bridesmaids (sort of) to wear purple. I'm Indian so need a tone of purple that works with darker skin (think dark golden skin). 5 foot 4, size 10-12 - good arms, nice upper body, tummy has a tendency to podge (thanks DC!), good but slightly heavy legs. Have been browsing online for a fab purple dress but cant see anything so thought would ask the style & beauty gurus if they've seen any recently. Anyone?

I like this but it is not the right purple for you is it?
you need more this colour? but th edress doesn't look very nice fitting.

Thanks! The Issa dress is lovely - but I'd have to try it on to see how the colour looks on me. The Ponti Pencil dress - I tried this but the purple in real life isnt the colour on the website and didnt look as good on. The Oasis one is great but not a huge fan of pleats (am a fussy bugger arent I)? The Hobbs one is really pretty but will need to try on to check the colour - and the Coast one would look hideous on me as would definitely accentuate my tummy! The last website you sent through is a good inspiration though - and the ones that caught my attention flicking through all seemed to cost ££££ too grin
