My Phase Eight Verity Dress (in oyster) is too big for me *sob*

(67 Posts)
Gillybobs Thu 13-Oct-11 12:07:20's the most flattering dress in the world and I adore it but after trying it on for the 5th time I must concede it's far too big for me. Im a 16 and bought an 18 as its all I could get my hands on.

So anyway, before I ebay is there somewhere on MN I can advertise it for sale? As its a MN favourite dress I thought Id try here before ebay.

Here it is here

It is beautiful, can't you put on weight till it fits smile

Gillybobs Thu 13-Oct-11 12:10:54

Oh god you are joking arent you! Maybe if it was a 12 that was too big! grin

Gillybobs Thu 13-Oct-11 12:12:14

Eagle, dont think I havent thought of that....they are generously sized you see, Im a 16 on top, 14 on the bottom so its way big at my waist and hops. Gutted as its the most flattering dress Ive ever bought. Cant get a smaller one for love nor money!

Anyone know if there is a selling place on here?

Gilly - There was a Verity dress in size 16 on Ebay a few weeks ago. I didn't keep an eye on it, but think someone was selling for £40.

The one I saw on Ebay was labelled Verity Dress though, think she would of had more interest if she had !

Gutted for you, I agree THE most flattering dress I have ever owned.

Oh that's gorgeous...I'm a size 18 and would gladly buy it...but funds too low this month sad
I'm sure someone will snap it up though smile

oo that's lovely. But sadly the colour does nothing for me. It drains the life out of me. If it was dark red on the other hand, I'd buy it (even thought it's the wrong size for me too grin)

I have a recipe for some fabulously gooey chocolate brownies if that helps at all. I've eaten half a tray and have gone up a size already.

Sorry - that should read "The one I saw on Ebay wasn't labelled Verity Dress though, think she would of had more interest if she had !"

North - Ive had a look on ebay there is a 12 and an 8 on there. Both used. Bids at £64 already with still a day to go. Am sure it will go well on ebay as its BNWT , just know its popular on here so wanted to try MN first.

So pretty. Really love it.
Sorry not my size or colour though.

Gillybobs Thu 13-Oct-11 12:16:50

soup - Id need to stick the brownies to my butt to make this dress fit!

head - weird innit, the dark red one did nothing for me but this is lush

Northumberlandlass Thu 13-Oct-11 12:17:45

Hope you find one x

Curiousmama Thu 13-Oct-11 12:18:34

It's gorgeous hope you sell it for a good price?

headfairy Thu 13-Oct-11 12:19:15

Oh I didn't realise it came in red <runs off to Phase Eight>

I can't wear anything remotely beige, earthy, brown tones. Grey and green yest, but browns no. I'm a perfectly average mousey person. odd isn't it?

Gillybobs Thu 13-Oct-11 12:19:40

Cheers folks. Will hang off til later before I list it in ebay, just in case...

Gillybobs Thu 13-Oct-11 12:20:29

head the red one is very dark IRL, almost a wine colour.

Tillyscoutsmum Thu 13-Oct-11 12:20:54

OP - have you tried the Cognac colour here. Size 16 still in stock. I have a 16 in the red and I think its too big but the 14 is out of stock. I may go for the cognac one (if a 14 fits)

Gillybobs Thu 13-Oct-11 12:22:48

Thanks tilly , not sure about that cognac colour, might go into a store for a peek

CaptainNancy Thu 13-Oct-11 12:46:12

Oh, now the cognac is a nice colour...

headfairy Thu 13-Oct-11 12:58:08

gilly that sounds perfect for me.. dark red works on me. Must be the fake blonde hair grin

Northumberlandlass Thu 13-Oct-11 13:08:04

OMG !! didn't know they did a Cognac's beautiful <swoon>

spooktrain Thu 13-Oct-11 13:16:57

Could you get someone to take it in for you? It is an amazing dress
I had an expensive pair of trews altered last year and they're great

spooktrain Thu 13-Oct-11 13:18:40

there is a print version too, in your size

I can't decide whether I like it or not though...
