Hey everyone, been a while since I posted on here, can't believe how different it looks! Hope everyone is good.

Anyway, my other half is having a Gangster and Molls themed party in 5 weeks time and I have to find a dress.

I am 5ft 2, 27, size 10 with 34e boobs, have a curvy figure with sizeabe bum considering my waist. The problem is, I live by the general rule that my clothes have to have a scoop or v neckline and cinched waist. Flapper style dresses do not conform to this and are designed for slimmer people, ith drop waists and high necklines :|

Does anyone have any idea what I can do? My budget is less than £80 ideally I could spend more if it's something I might wear again.

i did see a flapper style dress earlier, think it on Coast's website in cream, can'r remember exact details though. HTH

I would spend the £80 on a fancy dress costume hire - that way you will get lots more choice, accessories etc included and no worry about wearing it again.

TheProvincialLady - I just thought all fancy dress hire was naff polyester?! Do you know any good places? Thanks

Thanks blueemerald, not keen on the girl gangster idea, but quite like that second dress I think (although it's so late I can't think any more!), will have a nosey around there.

marriednotdead you star, I just replied.

It's probably not much use to you, but there is a fantastic place in Leicester! I think you need to look for somewhere that says it does fancy dress and theatrical costumes.

Hope this link works I know it says size 8 but it looks like it is a 10 euro 38, flapper style and you could accessorize
