Just spent a frustrating 2 hours on the internet trying to find something to wear.

I want it to be CHEAP as I am maternity pay and very very skint.

I'm 29, and dress like a young 29 if you know what I mean, a size 14 with wide shoulders and an enormous 36E chest due to breastfeeding. I have always had a complex about my massive shoulders and have dressed to minimise it. The added problem of massive boobs is making it impossible. I'm also feeling a bit fat as I have a post-baby body.

Don;t mind if it's a dress or a nice top to go with black trousers.

That's quite nice, thanks!

I know a 14 isn't particularly fat, but I'm very wibbly and wobbly post baby, so not looking great. My legs are actually fantastic smile, definitely my best feature. My arms aren't too bad, but I would prefer a bit of a sleeve because sleeveless makes my wide shoulders look wider.

How tall are you and what colours do you like?

SarahScot Thu 21-Jul-11 07:58:25

I'm 5ft 6 and a half (v important half!)

I can wear most strong colours, but am better in coral/brown/green/teal. Can't wear pastels.

MrsCampbellBlack (or can I call you Taggie?smile), do you know me? I like all those dresses, think the two coral ones are probably my favourites. The Zara one is llovely but would probably make my mega boobs look even bigger, as would the cream one.

Going to brave and go shopping later.
