Day dresses please

Could anyone please help me find a couple of comfy, quite cheap, day dresses?

I like symmetry and quite plain things. Needs to be accessible for breastfeeding, not short or long, and if possible I'd like them to hide my post c-section tummy overhang. Size 12-14 (currently 14 but usually 10, assume I'll deflate at some point...)

Hello Loopy smile

Do you want long or short sleeved? Any particular colour? Fabric?

Don't mind with the sleeves. Nor colour, really. Prefer cotton, linen or jersey.

Thanks tethers, I'll look at the links now. smile

Hmm, a bit simpler than each of those I think. Quite like this one, but not sure it'll be any good for breastfeeding. I really like wrap-arounds.

Red wrap

LoopyLoopsTootyFroots Wed 17-Aug-11 18:29:09

I like.

What about this one?

LoopyLoopsTootyFroots Wed 17-Aug-11 18:29:49

Although, does the red one look a little nursey?

That next one is ok...

A couple from Asda: Here and here...

LoopyLoopsTootyFroots Wed 17-Aug-11 19:20:11

Quite like those Asda ones, who'd have thought?!

tethersend Wed 17-Aug-11 19:32:19

I bloody love asda

I love that Vero Modo dress from Asos! I've never ordered from them before but have just taken the plunge. Bit worried as it's 100% polyester, but hopefully it will be OK - and a bargain!

LoopyLoopsTootyFroots Wed 17-Aug-11 19:39:14

We don't have one anywhere near, but didn't realise you could get clothes online.

LoopyLoopsTootyFroots Wed 17-Aug-11 19:39:42

What are their kids clothes like?

tethersend Wed 17-Aug-11 19:40:16

Let's gloss over the kids clothes...

RollingInTheAisles Wed 17-Aug-11 19:47:42

Well... I went in M&Co for the first time recently and was slightly pleasantly surprised. I might have even bought something but thought they were still a bit expensive for somewhere I think of as cheap IYSWIM.

LoopyLoopsTootyFroots Wed 17-Aug-11 19:48:56

Oh, no good then?
