Eh no... 5 ,6 14/16. Perhaps that's why it's more tunic and less dress as my curves raise the hemline. I have this too and wondered if it might be better www.next.co.uk/x482058s1#735813x48 I also have high heeled tan brogues but due to my size would feel happier with leggings and boots. Are you kindly telling me that the first is strictly for the very slim? Should I be looking smarter or embracing the creative vibe and going very casual?
I m no stylist ! I sometimes like stuff that people in general wouldnt like but here goes!>......I love the colour of the first one I think you could wear it if you re a size 14/16 cause as you say the ruching is in the right place. I was going to say legging s and boots, are a little predictable - what about some brogues and tights (with some thick rimmed glasses to top it off)? if you re more comfortable in the leggings and boots though I d go for that - last thing you want is to be standing fiddling with your outfit in front of the crowd .... or wishing you had worn what your gut was telling you in t he first place. I think olive green would be great with that dress - a leather short jacket over it maybe if you go for the boots and leggings look ..... Instead of leggings maybe think of tights ...... I d accessorise with some great jewellery .... is it a day time or evening / night event?.....
I really like the shape of the first one. I've got big norks (32E) and am an hourglass shape (I think). I would be able to wear a dress like that if I put a jacket or cardigan over it to 'break up' the bustline a bit. I'd wear it with black opaques and quirky black wedges. Love the idea of a leather jacket over it too.
I have fairly big boobs and wear slash neck styles quite often. My wedding dress was a slash neck, but as it was properly fitted around the ribcage and waist it was fine - and of course you do need a properly fitting supportive bra.
High neckline + big boobs = disaster is just a myth.
