Have a hot date with dh for our anniversary in september - posh restaurant/hotel and want to look amazing...i am size 12 hourglass shape (34E boobs) and want something sophisticated but sexy. The only thing i've found so far that i like is this but at over a grand there's no chance of getting that!! Can anyone find me something with a similar style/vibe for under £200. Doesn't have to be black but would prefer a classic colour (black/charcoal/navy etc) and no high necklines please or i'll look too matronly. I prefer a knee/midi length as i think the silhouette is better... I also considered this skirt but not sure what to wear with it to look modern/chic not retro/fancy dress.

Help me please!!

This is very similar- even with shipping costs/taxes from US will still be loads cheaper....

That one's a bit too "retro" for me tethers but thanks for looking smile

Oh my word oldbag what have you done!! I want EVERYTHING on that website shock I need to get an office job just to wear (and afford) the lovely things! I've ordered this one so fingers crossed it fits and looks good...grin

Well it arrived.....GORGEOUS! So flattering and well made and nicely boned bodice so no need for bra even with my DDs - I LOVE it! Now I want more...yikes!

Oh and true to size on me, no squeezing norkds up to your neck and a great length below the knee (i'm 5ft8).
