and how could I accessorise to make it glam?,default,pd.html

It makes the model look most odd - have you tried it on?

Depends on your age and size I think. I'm early 30's and size 12- wouldn't waer it as I think it would make me look quite frumpy

PetiteMum Sun 07-Aug-11 21:13:59

Milkysmum, I'm the same! And frump is exactly what I thought.....maybe not eh? I just fancy something different to the usual prom dress which everyone else will be wearing. My other thought was to wear a woman's tux with a Lacey cami and stilettos and glam jewellery....

Oh yes tux much better than that dress.

There is quite a lot of fabric, think it might be quite tricky to wear if you aren't a tall, slim hourglass shape. Tux sounds great

Hmmmm, ok need to find some glam but not tacky jewellery then.... I already have a White tux jacket and black trousers.... Thanks for helping me decide!

I love that dress, sorry!

Great tuxedo jumpsuit here

Hey thats a great jumpsuit! But doesn't the crotch look a bit weird?
