I'm after a smart / casual little black dress for work or casual drink wear.

Not too short, just about the knee if possible.

I'm a size 14 with bingo wings so need a bit if sleeve. Big of nork so I can't wear a neckline which is too high.

Has anyone seen anything good recently? My budget is around the £80 mark.

Thanks for your help.

Found this so far, Checked john lewis but nothing stood out, even this is average....

Ooh i like this

On the right lines?

hummmm... I'm not loving either (but thanks for looking!) The first is a bit casual and the second a bit clingy...

Ohh i'm a fussy one.

I have this one which is suprisingly NOT clingy.. asos ponti it is fairly structured and holds everything in nicely, and after 2 children I am no waif...

I have worn it many times.

Another personal fav is the Isabella Oliver wrap I have it in black, lovely weight jersey and you can dress up with heels/ earrings and a leopard clutch or down with boots....
