I am hosting a party next month and am in the process of losing weight so am still not feeling great about myself. I need something comfy and flattering. I am a pear shape so have good boobs and a smallish waist but my bum is large and currently my belly is pretty big. I have fair skin and dark blonde hair. I would quite like something in navy but am not too fussy.

Any ideas appreciated. Budget max of £70. Thanks smile

Boden sale. You could pick up 2 on that budget. Long or short sleeve options are there. Jersey is a good option as it will fit for a while and be adaptable.

Brora sale also worth looking at. HTH.

How about this, also available in a lovely green,
this could be very flattering,
chiffonny, bit of cleavage, flattering pattern

I like the pearl Lowe one but not the colour. Really like the first dp one selks. One thing I need is nothing above the knee (I have stubby legs) but being short that might be knee length on me. I love this but it is too short. 80% of dresses in the shop right now are above the knee - very annoying!
