Can I wear this?

I am going to a Christening in a few weeks time and I need a new dress as all of mine are too big.
I love this one ASOS but I'm not sure if it'll suit me.

I'm a size 10 but I have 32FF boobs. I'd usually avoid anything with a higher neckline, but I was wondering if the sheer part would cancel it out?! blush If not, can anyone suggest another suitable dress for a summer Christening in a similar colour which would be more flattering.

you could try, no harm buying it to try it on eh?! I know what you mean about the high neckline but it seems quite baggy on the flat chested model, it really depends on your body shape though i suppose, iyswim

i think you should buy it to try it on, you can always send it back and id buy something else as a back up just incase!

I love it, are you going for green or orange? I'm a size 10/12 with 30GG boobs and I'd wear it. I'd probably wear a thick belt with it though as sometimes that style of dress can gather funny at the waist if you are curvy like me.

I think I'll buy it and try it on. I was initially going to get the green but I also love the orange so I think I'll buy both and see which (if any) I like best. I definitely agree that a belt is the way to go!

I love that dress- and ignore the big boobs = low neckline mantra as it is a load of old toss grin
