Wrap dresses...

I'm in the market for a nice wrap dress as I think it will flatter my post-baby figure (huge norks, floppy tummy, but got my waist back). Anyone seen any? I'm very short and looking for something in a light fabric as I live abroad.

I get mine from Boden and Hobbs. There are some decent ones on eBay

Thanks! Been seeing some nice ones on Boden but I am worried they are too heavy for the hot weather here. Oooh- just watching Gok now so maybe tu it is! Any others?

Try LK Bennett. They normally have a few on offer.

I saw the Gok ones on Saturday and I really wouldn't bother - a bit eveningy. Think they are about £40 or £45 and I bought an Isabelle Oliver one for £66 (in the pre-sale mid-season daily random % off they do every now and then) They're quality dresses.

Monsoon usually do a decent wrap dress too.

I too would give the Gok ones a miss. They are quite long - below knee length on me and I am 5ft 8 and very low cut.

I saw this one recently and was really tempted as it looked good around the bust, looks like it would look ok with a big supportive bra, has long sleeves and the wrapping round the tum would hold any wobbly bits in place nicelt!
