ordered three dresses online, have tried them on and I know which I like... But wanted reassurance from DH. He has said my least fave looks the nicest and this is the one he prefers.

I am 5ft size 10 but have slight bingo wings. DH prefers the sleeveless dress <<sigh!>>. Nowt I can do about bingo wings now seen as the dress is for Sat night. Going out with two other couples to a really nice restaurant, well it is a pub with a restaurant attached, it is renowned for it's seafood up north.

Which dress do you like?

DH likes

my second fave

my first choice

All are at knee level. First two slim fitting, third floaty, bit not too floaty that it could make you look pregnant.

Rank in order of liking please grin

Same order of preferance as you.

My order of preference:

I like your dh's favourite by a long, long way.

Then your middle one.

I don't like your favourite. It is like a pilgrim school marm dress (or something).

Your DH likes that one because it's sexy.

I like the DH one best.

Your favourite is the safest IMO.

As Yama said. I think they're all a tad 'safe' tbh - a bit work-like, really. Sorry bellavita.

Your DH's fave is also mine. I'm afraid your fave is my least. Have a fab night out whichever you choose

TrillianAstra Thu 15-Sep-11 20:35:35

You shouldn't have told us which you preferred - would have been a better guessing game smile

I like the one with the leaves at the bottom best.

tethersend Thu 15-Sep-11 20:36:54

Since DH can see you, he's probably in a better position to judge than us- but on dresses alone, I still agree with him.

Bellavita Thu 15-Sep-11 20:39:01

He has also chosen the most expensive... (he didn't know that at the time) grin

I am a safe sort of person. But I am 46 so don't want to look like mutton dressed as lamb.

One DH likes it is then.

Is DH in favour of the lace at the hem because its obviously and suggestive. The others are far too safe. Work it with a great lip colour and heels, maybe shimmer opaques for the evening to avoid flashing or the cold when seated or perhaps when/if have too much too drink. Enjoy your night out

Bellavita Thu 15-Sep-11 20:40:05

Trills has met me...

So you must think the leaves one is more me? It is the most fitted out of the three.

your dh fave 1st, then your fave, then your 2nd fave last ( not keen on this one)

Bellavita Thu 15-Sep-11 20:42:25

Live, I still have a tan from our holiday so would like to go bare legged. I have some fabulous Steve McFadden sling backs the same colour as the slip showing through the leaves of the dress which I will wear.

Bellavita Thu 15-Sep-11 20:43:55

Bluddy, probably me being over critical tbh...

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 15-Sep-11 20:45:39

Your DH is definitely right smile

By far the sexiest and will show off your figure beautifully.

I've got some tess daly glow body stuff from m&s which is fab for giving a subtle sheen - put some on your arms and legs and you'll look even more lovely.

DorisIsAPinkDragon Thu 15-Sep-11 20:45:59

Your dh fave first definitely and by a long long way grin the other two are very old lady ish, and boring (even for me and I play things fairly safe!).

TapselteerieO Thu 15-Sep-11 20:48:20

Dh has lovely taste, way better than the other two choices.

IHeartKingThistle Thu 15-Sep-11 20:48:42

I like them all but I like your favourite least! I think the first one is totally gorgeous. BUT you do need to choose something you feel good in.

cornsylk Thu 15-Sep-11 20:49:43

dh choice first
then second choice
I like your first choice last

Bellavita Thu 15-Sep-11 20:51:28

The pics do not do any of them justice at all.

But am so glad I posted and asked you lovely lot now.

blueskydrinking Thu 15-Sep-11 20:53:13

I'm another size 10 with a bingo wings complex.

They are exaggerated I think by my skinny forearms and ankles!!

I do think the sleeveless dress is beautiful, though. A bit of subtle fake tan (I know not always popular) always seems to make me feel less self-concious about mine.

Bellavita Thu 15-Sep-11 20:53:31

Btw he thinks you are all bloody wonderful! grin

IceCreamCastles Thu 15-Sep-11 20:54:22

Your dh is right I think. The other two aren't fitted enough IMO.
Have a lovely time

ExpensivePants Thu 15-Sep-11 20:55:43

I know crap all about S&B but your DH is right by a looooooong way. The other two are, well, a little frumpy if I'm honest. At least, on the website they are, don't know about in RL.
